[8:04:00 PM] <wodensday> I think we can start, then. [8:04:18 PM] <wodensday> Meeting called to order at 9:04 eastern time. [8:04:24 PM] <wodensday> IDs? [8:04:28 PM] <wodensday> Anthony Jay, IN [8:04:37 PM] <Yari> Rose Klein, CA, pnc chair [8:06:10 PM] <pmchi> Mitchel Davilo, Chicagoland/ILPP, Swarmcare Manager [8:07:00 PM] <wodensday> Here is our agenda: https://wiki.uspirates.org/w/index.php?title=Outreach_08/17/2021 [8:07:01 PM] <papegaai> Title: Outreach 08/17/2021 - United States Pirate Party (at wiki.uspirates.org) [8:07:35 PM] <wodensday> It should be complete, but if I've missed something, let me know either for this time or for the next meeting. It's been a busy week so something may have fallen off. [8:08:47 PM] <wodensday> That being said, though, posting schedules - primary for twitter. [8:09:24 PM] <wodensday> I believe we talked somewhat about wanting to see a certain amount of tweets from each person per week. Is that still where we are? [8:10:14 PM] <Yari> Yeah, i haven't set aside time in my schedule yet to do social media stuff [8:10:24 PM] <Yari> So as far as I'm aware, yes. [8:11:12 PM] <Yari> Planning on having a few specific tines each week where i check and post stuff [8:12:07 PM] <wodensday> Excellent. Do you have a number of tweets per week in mind? One we can all try to strive for. [8:13:14 PM] <Yari> Personally i was thinking 3? But its an arbitrary number [8:14:06 PM] <wodensday> We don't have to make some hard rule of course. It's just good to discuss. [8:14:13 PM] <wodensday> 3 sounds like a good number [8:14:29 PM] <wodensday> Pmchi, do you have any thoughts? Once you get the chance [8:15:28 PM] <pmchi> I also think 3 is a good place to start. Not too little, not expecting one a day. You get minimum 9 tweets a week between us [8:15:38 PM] <pmchi> Sounds reasonable enough, no? [8:16:06 PM] <wodensday> Sounds like a generally active twitter account for an organization [8:16:16 PM] <Yari> Better than the zero it is now [8:16:37 PM] <wodensday> Indeed [8:17:13 PM] <pmchi> Everyone needs rehab ahead they break their leg. Baby steps, we’ll be running in no time [8:17:22 PM] <pmchi> **after [8:18:03 PM] <wodensday> Do we have any thoughts on what it is we'll be posting? [8:18:50 PM] <wodensday> Pirates takes on the news, with caution (since we're speaking for the party) [8:19:50 PM] <Yari> Remember that its okay to retweet things also, just check then first [8:20:23 PM] <Yari> Politifact is your friend [8:20:53 PM] <wodensday> Yes, yes [8:21:47 PM] <wodensday> And of course we will be drawing attention to the activities of our pirates on the ground (mainly the MAPP) [8:22:34 PM] <Yari> the feed should have stuff from international pirates too, doesnt hurt to boost then every so often [8:22:47 PM] <Yari> Mainly keep it US though [8:23:26 PM] <Yari> should wwe coordinate our schedules? [8:24:19 PM] <wodensday> Doesn't tweetdeck do that for us, if we're setting up most of our posts in advance? A to-be tweeter should be able to see if a day has too many?not enough tweets [8:24:38 PM] <wodensday> Or can one not see other's scheduled tweets [8:25:22 PM] <Yari> Im not sure [8:27:02 PM] <wodensday> If we can't, twitter is much more of a tweet-per-week kind of social media than one that wants to be rigidly scheduled. So long as none of us make too many tweets per day, I think we should be fine [8:27:37 PM] <pmchi> Perhaps 3 day rotation? You don’t have to tweet unless you see no tweets have been tweeted. If it’s your day, you have to make sure you tweet something for the day [8:28:48 PM] ← dreamer_ has left (Ping timeout: 246 seconds) [8:29:14 PM] <pmchi> So say it’s my day on a Monday. If Yari and Wodensday both tweeted something that day, I don’t have to worry. My next day is Thursday. If, on Thursday, no one has tweeted anything, I’m forced to make sure the account is active [8:29:14 PM] <wodensday> My suggestion is that we keep tweet scheduling fairly casual. [8:29:34 PM] → dreamer_ has joined [8:30:12 PM] <Yari> Honestly i like what pmchi is suggesting though [8:30:44 PM] <wodensday> Oh, I think I get what you're saying. [8:30:50 PM] <Yari> It means we have to keep checking the page anyway, and it means the page gets updated. [8:31:00 PM] <Yari> We can still schedule tweets if we want [8:31:05 PM] <Yari> But we dont have to [8:31:15 PM] <pmchi> It allows the “tweet as you will” pace, it’s just making someone accountable for a day [8:31:49 PM] <wodensday> Would we have three wet days per week to tweet? (You post Mon, Thu, Sat) Or would it be every third day? (Yari day, pmchi day, Woden's day) [8:32:05 PM] <wodensday> Ignore the pun [8:32:15 PM] <pmchi> I was thinking every third day personally [8:32:22 PM] <pmchi> I don’t know if I can ignore that pun [8:32:52 PM] <pmchi> It was well done [8:33:10 PM] <wodensday> I had no real choice in the matter, I had to [8:33:26 PM] <Yari> Good pun [8:34:01 PM] <wodensday> Yari, does every other day sounds good to you? [8:34:08 PM] <wodensday> Not every other day, every third day [8:34:17 PM] <Yari> Not really. [8:34:25 PM] <Yari> The world works on weekly schedules [8:34:41 PM] <Yari> Unfortunately, i am forced to do the same [8:35:09 PM] <Yari> I would suggest two rounds of three and then sunday is all of us [8:35:20 PM] <wodensday> Pesky society, at it again [8:35:29 PM] <pmchi> We live in a society [8:35:44 PM] <pmchi> But Yari, I like that proposal [8:36:38 PM] <wodensday> Pmchi, your reference does not go unrecognized, but it will go unrewarded [8:36:56 PM] <pmchi> Understandable [8:37:38 PM] <Yari> We were all thinking it [8:38:33 PM] <wodensday> Memes with hard to describe contexts? In MY internet-based political party? [8:39:10 PM] <wodensday> ...Anyways [8:40:16 PM] <wodensday> I'm hearing weekday-based schedule [8:40:45 PM] <pmchi> Should we set schedules now or give it a week? [8:40:51 PM] <Yari> I'll take whatever days work best [8:41:16 PM] <wodensday> We could start Thursday. [8:41:31 PM] <wodensday> Thu-Fri-Sat being the first instance of our new posting order [8:42:31 PM] <Yari> actually, if there are no objections, i can take thursday and monday [8:42:36 PM] <Yari> Start us off [8:43:12 PM] <pmchi> I’ll take Tuesday Friday, Tuesday is my first day off so I’ll have the most free time [8:43:41 PM] <wodensday> Well, that leaves me with Wednesday-Saturday. I've no objections to that [8:43:52 PM] <wodensday> I can even post tomorrow [8:45:11 PM] <wodensday> Don't forget to look at how other political parties tweet - you may be able to steal a few things [8:45:20 PM] <Yari> And remember, this doesn't mean that we're limjted to only these days [8:45:36 PM] <Yari> Just that we are minimally responsible for these days [8:45:37 PM] <pmchi> Just held accountable for them! [8:46:03 PM] <wodensday> Excellent, glad we're on the same page there! [8:47:45 PM] <wodensday> Does anyone else have any other input on this subject? [8:48:26 PM] <pmchi> Replying to viral tweets can be as helpful as tweeting if the input and message is good [8:48:51 PM] <pmchi> Not viral “haha” tweet, relevant viral [8:48:58 PM] <Yari> Nada from me [8:49:08 PM] <Yari> Good point [8:49:26 PM] <wodensday> Oh absolutely. Use all the tools in the twitter arsenal - tweets, retweets, replies, quote tweets, you know the drill [8:50:38 PM] <wodensday> Pmchi, would you like to discuss your progress on the pamphlet for a few minutes? [8:51:36 PM] <pmchi> I would love to! I’ve set myself a deadline over a busy week, but I have compiled what is the roughest of rough drafts, and would like and appreciate any input [8:52:25 PM] <pmchi> https://usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/MHIzPly8/Pirate_Pamphlet_Draft.docx [8:54:04 PM] <Yari> Wonderful! I'll take a look! [8:59:15 PM] <wodensday> Make sure to keep us updated over the course of the next week! [8:59:55 PM] <Yari> pmchi do you have a preference for receiving input? [9:00:02 PM] <Yari> Method that is [9:00:06 PM] <Yari> Email or [9:00:09 PM] <Yari> Discord [9:00:10 PM] <Yari> Or [9:00:26 PM] <pmchi> Email would work best, but any form will get to me [9:01:24 PM] <Yari> Cool [9:01:33 PM] <Yari> Wodensday, could we adjourn? [9:01:41 PM] <Yari> Or is there other stuff? [9:02:11 PM] <wodensday> Was just about to ask! We should be ready for a motion to adjourn. Though, since it's the two of you, we just need pmchi's input [9:02:32 PM] <pmchi> I’m absolutely okay with adjourning [9:02:54 PM] <wodensday> Meeting absolutely adjourned!
