  • Just wanted to make the community aware of a practice occurring weekly in IRC. No, it's not the Inquisitorius meetings (which are publicized on WP:INQ), but a phenomenon known as the mini-Mofference. You'll not find a page for these events on the site. You'll not find a site-notice announcing them, but they occur. A group of people get together in IRC and make "non-binding decisions", sometimes pulling off topics from the Mofference page to discuss. You also won't find logs of these events either on the site. And despite there being no binding decisions made in this conventions, if an idea is shot down in the mini-Mofference, it usually won't later be acted upon in a CT thread, etc.

Just fyi. Atarumaster88 16:02, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

  • It's no different from any other IRC discussions that go there all the time, 24/7. It's just a designated time for our convenience. - Sikon 16:14, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Then they should be advertised on the site notice like a regular Mofference would, so other people can have some input as well, not just IRC regulars that happen to be in the room at the time. Having a group of five to ten people making important site decisions without informing the rest of the community of what they intend to do comes off as cabalish, and remember, There Is No Cabal.

      • Yea, at least let the users know when it's going down and what is discussed/voted on/changed. Balance. There must be balance. -- Riffsyphon1024 19:23, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
        • Exactly. —Silly Dan (talk) 19:27, 20 April 2007 (UTC)
          • There are no "binding decisions" being made. Advertising it as a Mofference would only serve to make it official, and then all decisions made in the mini-mofference would be official policy, even though not nearly as many people would show up as do to real mofferences. So I ask, what's wrong with an unofficial, non-policy-creating discussion at a pre-designated time? —Xwing328(Talk) 00:40, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
        • We're not voting on anything, Riff. We're not doing anything policy-altering. Everything policy-altering goes through CT first, as it always has. - Sikon 03:51, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
