An easy win for mwstake for 3rd party users would be promoting the option to remove the "This is my own work" checkbox on image/file uploads using VisualEditor or the wikitext editor.

Bylaw notes[edit]

Notes on potential changes to the bylaws:

  1. §3.2.2 — Notice must be given to the Directors at least 30 calendar days before the Board of Directors may consider an amendment, supplement, or repeal of the Charter or these Bylaws.
    • It appears this means the Board needs 30 notice before we can decide to amend the bylaws. Propose to reduce this to 7 or 14/15 days.
    • §3.5May be a way for a Board of Directors meeting to bypass the notice via a Board Meeting.
  2. §5.6.3 — Notice must be sent to each Director 30 calendar days before a meeting of the Board of Directors.
    • It appears this means the Board needs 30 notice before we can have a meeting. Propose to reduce this to 7 or 14/15 days.
    • §3.5May be a way for a Board of Directors meeting to bypass the notice via a Board Meeting.
  3. §3.2.3 — Notice must be given to the Ordinary Members at least 30 calendar days before the Annual Meeting of Members or a Special Meeting of Members may consider an amendment, supplement, or repeal of the Charter or these Bylaws.
    • It appears this means the Ordinary Members needs 30 notice before we can decide to amend the bylaws. Propose to reduce this to 7 or 14 days.
    • §3.5May be a way for a Board of Directors meeting to bypass the notice.
  4. §4.3.1.2 — An Ordinary Member must submit an application for membership via mwstake.org.
    • We should add an application link to mwstake.org.
  5. §4.3.1.6 — The Board of Directors or its designate must approve the application of an Ordinary Member.
    • Just a note, currently we'd need approval from the Board for every new Ordinary Member. I suppose this could just be a circulated email.
  6. §4.6.4 — Notice of the date, time, and place of the Annual Meeting of Members and Special Meetings of Members must be given to all Directors, Ordinary Members, and Corporate Members at least thirty calendar days prior to the date of the meeting.
    • Propose to reduce this to 7 or 14/15 days.
    • We should amend the bylaws to enclose all numeric days in parentheses, for example "(30) days". Additionally, numbers should be the same, for example "at least eighteen (18) years of age".
    • Not related, but all references to mwstake.org should be a link to the main page.
  7. §5.2.1 — Directors must be elected by a majority vote of a quorum of the Ordinary Members during the Annual Meeting of Members.
    • Looking forward, we need to schedule Annual Meetings (likely at conferences like EMW or SMW) and this is how Directors are chosen. §5.4.4 - Discusses how to deal with Directors that leave early or are removed.
  8. §5.6.5.2 — Actions of the Board of Directors must take the form of resolutions and must be included in the records of the Corporation.
    • I suppose it should be "on wiki" (mwstake.org), but we should decide how to capture the "Records of the Corporation".
  9. §5.6.5.3.5 — Neither the Bylaws nor the Charter of the Corporation can be amended without a meeting of the Board of Directors.
    • I suppose it should be "on wiki" (mwstake.org), but we should decide what the Charter should include.
