jelkneri spoke to louisea about an hour ago11:08
jelknerwe were talking about how to pursue other avenues besides just NVM11:09
jelkneri was at an Our Revolution Arlington meeting last night11:10
jelknerand we had a ridiculous situation where a single table was being passed around with a Google form on it11:16
jelknerbb, students with questions, replaceafill 11:17
replaceafilljelkner, sure11:17
jelknerback (at least for now) replaceafill 11:24
replaceafilljelkner, cool11:25
jelknereach person had to fill out all there personal info11:25
jelknerit was slow and frustrating, and most people didn't do it11:25
jelknerso, we have recently defined "members" as folks who come to three or more meetings during a year11:26
jelknercounting this is now a problem11:26
jelkneranyway, you probably can guess where i'm going with this11:26
replaceafilljelkner, yes, kind of11:27
replaceafilljelkner, but how do you plan us to solve it?11:27
jelknerit is a problem tailor made for novawebdev tendenci11:27
replaceafilljelkner, i mean, you mentioned each people should mark themselves as "present"?11:27
jelknerwhen people arrive for the first time we ask them to join11:27
jelkner(but through their phone, not through some tablet with a google form)11:28
replaceafillit was a tablet!11:28
replaceafillnot a table!11:28
jelkneroops, sorry11:28
replaceafill"we had a ridiculous situation where a single table was"11:28
replaceafillgot me wondering for a while :D11:28
jelknerso they use their own phone to register with us the first time11:29
jelknernext time, we enable a button on the website during meetings that allows logged users to just click11:30
jelknerinstead of fill11:30
jelknerwe have a database11:30
replaceafillis the button going to be enabled just for the duration of the meeting?11:30
jelknerso we can query "who are our current members" according to the rules we devise11:30
jelkneryes, just during the meeting11:30
replaceafillit's basically attendance functionality11:31
jelknerso let me back up a minutes11:31
jelknerit is11:31
jelknerexactly that11:31
jelknerit records attendance at meetings11:31
jelknerso, first, a question11:31
jelknerare we approaching a state where mr_german could maintain a tendenci website?11:32
jelknersince this is something i would have to pay you to setup, and i want to make sure if we go down this path11:32
replaceafilli'd say not yet11:33
replaceafillmr_german's problem with tendenci is still django11:33
jelknerand determine you need to take another job to keep camilia fed11:33
replaceafilljelkner, sure11:33
replaceafilljelkner, i understand11:33
replaceafilljelkner, we've been there before...11:33
replaceafilljelkner, i don't plan on leave you hanging11:34
jelkneryes, it is an underlying theme to all we are doing11:34
jelknerokie dokie11:34
jelknerso i plan to offer to OR Arlington to take on their website11:34
replaceafilljelkner, my plan for this: explore tendenci calendar and events11:34
jelkneri'll ask to meet with the sc at their next meeting11:35
replaceafilljelkner, it's used for event "registration"11:35
replaceafilljelkner, and the attendance functionality should be custom for sure11:35
jelknerso we can do this, yes?11:35
replaceafilljelkner, it's software!11:35
