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==
 
Notes on potential changes to the [[bylaws]]:
 
# '''[[Bylaws#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.|§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.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|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.}}
 
#* [[Bylaws#Waiver of Notice|§3.5]] — {{Font color|blue|May be a way for a Board of Directors meeting to bypass the notice via a Board Meeting.}}
 
# '''[[Bylaws#Notice must be sent to each Director 30 calendar days before a meeting of the Board of Directors.|§5.6.3]] — Notice must be sent to each Director 30 calendar days before a meeting of the Board of Directors.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|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.}}
 
#* [[Bylaws#Waiver of Notice|§3.5]] — {{Font color|blue|May be a way for a Board of Directors meeting to bypass the notice via a Board Meeting.}}
 
# '''[[Bylaws#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.|§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.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|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.}}
 
#* [[Bylaws#Waiver of Notice|§3.5]] — {{Font color|blue|May be a way for a Board of Directors meeting to bypass the notice.}}
 
# '''[[Bylaws#An Ordinary Member must submit an application for membership via mwstake.org.|§4.3.1.2]] — An Ordinary Member must submit an application for membership via mwstake.org.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|We should add an application link to mwstake.org.}}
 
# '''[[Bylaws#The Board of Directors or its designate must approve the application of an Ordinary Member.|§4.3.1.6]] — The Board of Directors or its designate must approve the application of an Ordinary Member.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|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.}}
 
# '''[[Bylaws#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.|§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.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|Propose to reduce this to 7 or 14/15 days.}}
 
#* {{Font color|blue|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".}}
 
#* {{Font color|blue|Not related, but all references to mwstake.org should be a link to the main page.}}
 
# '''[[Bylaws#Directors must be elected by a majority vote of a quorum of the Ordinary Members during the Annual Meeting of Members.|§5.2.1]] — Directors must be elected by a majority vote of a quorum of the Ordinary Members during the Annual Meeting of Members.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|Looking forward, we need to schedule Annual Meetings (likely at conferences like EMW or SMW) and this is how Directors are chosen.  '''[[Bylaws#Vacancies|§5.4.4]]''' - Discusses how to deal with Directors that leave early or are removed.}}
 
# '''[[Bylaws#Actions of the Board of Directors must take the form of resolutions and must be included in the records of the Corporation.|§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.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|I suppose it should be "on wiki" (mwstake.org), but we should decide how to capture the "Records of the Corporation".}}
 
# '''[[Bylaws#Neither the Bylaws nor the Charter of the Corporation can be amended without a meeting of the Board of Directors.|§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.'''
 
#* {{Font color|blue|I suppose it should be "on wiki" (mwstake.org), but we should decide what the Charter should include.}}
 
 
 
==MWStake Meeting==
 
Steps to create a new MWStake meeting:
 
# Sign into MWStake (if you don't have an account, contact Mark)
 
# On the sidebar, click "Event" or the calendar icon with the "+"
 
# Select the Start/Stop Date/Time
 
#* {{Note|Currently the date picker isn't working on this site, but Mark has an [[Action:4|action to fix it]].  It should be in the form: <code>2019/09/25</code> }}
 
#* {{Note|Traditionally we've been meeting at 15:30 UTC}}
 
# Enter the meeting URL
 
#* {{Note|Currently we're using Bryan's Google Hangout which can handle up to 25 attendees: <code><nowiki>https://meet.google.com/mdd-ufhn-ksb</nowiki></code>}}
 
# Add a "Meeting Agenda" header, see [[Event:92|any previous meeting for format]] (this could be built into the Event template)
 
# Add an "Action board" header with the following (this could be built into the Event template):
 
#: <SyntaxHighlight lang="linux-config">
 
{{Actionable board
 
|Open
 
|{{PAGENAME}}
 
|Extension, Conference
 
|True
 
|View
