  • The organizationally-owned computers and software at the make shop

The following policies apply to admins:

  • New admins may be approved by proposal to the board.
  • Admins can have their account's admin privileges temporarily suspended by any board member for up to two weeks.
  • An admin shall be removed after that admin sends an email to root@makerslocal.org, explicitly stating their wishes to no longer serve as an admin.
    • If that condition is not met, an admin may be removed when a proposal to that effect is passed by the Board.
  • At least two admins shall have Operator privileges in the #makerslocal freenode channel.
  • At least two admins shall have privileged user status for any social networking site officially associated with the organization.
