Record of the meeting


[9:00pm] Yari: It is 9:00pm, do we have a quorum?
[9:01pm] Yari: I do not see Bosun present, who I believe we need
[9:01pm] jokeefe: yes
[9:01pm] wodensday: How many do we need?
[9:01pm] Yari: okay I will call, just a moment
[9:02pm] Yari: we need voting members
[9:02pm] Joe joined the chat room.
[9:02pm] Joe: Ahoy
[9:04pm] jokeefe: ahoy
[9:04pm] Yari: ahoy joe
[9:06pm] Yari: okay so I just got an update from Bosun, a scheduling mistake was made and apparently none of the WI reps will be joining us this evening.
[9:06pm] Yari: which means we do not have quorum.
[9:06pm] Yari:
[9:06pm] pmchi: Ahoy!
[9:06pm] Yari: ahoy pmchi
[9:06pm] pmchi: How are you guys doing?
[9:07pm] jokeefe: ok, you?
[9:07pm] wodensday: Does Pmchi change anything? Or no?
[9:07pm] wodensday: Their presence, that is
[9:07pm] Yari: ILPP isn't a recognized member yet
[9:07pm] wodensday: Ah
[9:07pm] Yari: we're almost there
[9:07pm] Joe: How can we change that?
[9:07pm] Yari: yeah so this is an informal discussion now, FYI
[9:07pm] Joe: Because I recognize pmchi's efforts
[9:08pm] Yari: agreed Joe
[9:08pm] Joe: (y)
[9:08pm] pmchi: Thank you guys!
[9:08pm] wodensday: Is the distinction that of legal status as a party?
[9:08pm] wodensday: Or something else
[9:09pm] Yari: ILPP can receive member status per the bylaws when they apply for it after having two consistent people who are able to attend meetings, and so long as they have a distinct and easy to contact internet presence
[9:09pm] Yari: I believe that is the extent of the reqs
[9:09pm] Yari: hang on, getting link
[9:10pm] Yari:
[9:10pm] Yari: wrong link, sorry
[9:10pm] Yari:
[9:10pm] Yari: That one
[9:11pm] jokeefe: Meeting page at
[9:11pm] papegaai: Title: PNC 06/13/21 - United States Pirate Party (at
[9:12pm] wodensday: I like the sound of these topics. Even as an informal meeting.
[9:14pm] Yari: pmchi does ILPP have a webpage yet?
[9:14pm] Yari: I haven't seen one
[9:14pm] Yari: I know you have a bunch of socials
[9:16pm] pmchi: No, presently just Twitter. I do have an ILPP Discord set up on the back burner for later but no website
[9:17pm] Yari: okay. jokeefe and Bosun and I can help with website setup, I'm setting up a CAPP website in the next couple weeks.
[9:18pm] Joe: You can get a blog setup that is linked to twitter, if I am correct.
[9:18pm] Yari: oh huh, that's a thought.
[9:18pm] Yari: yeah at least for a start, that could work
[9:19pm] Yari: If it's free, then that's a great resource for state parties actually wow
[9:19pm] Yari: since a lot of us use twitter for networking
[9:20pm] wodensday: I'd love to see more pirate blogging done in general. Sounds like a good opportunity.
[9:20pm] Yari: Ah Joe I misunderstood
[9:21pm] Yari: I thought you meant that twitter offered free blog hosting and I was very confused as to why I had never seen this
[9:21pm] Yari: you mean linking blog to output to twitter
[9:21pm] Joe:
[9:21pm] wodensday: You can still very easily link blog output to twitter, though.
[9:22pm] Joe: Yeah, there are generally patchs in the website builders that do just that
[9:22pm] Joe: Just depends on the template that you like really
[9:22pm] jokeefe: we could create blogs for states that don’t want to host their own
[9:23pm] Yari: of note - there is a free pirate wordpress theme that is used by many national pirate parties
[9:23pm] Yari: I recommend it
[9:23pm] Joe: wordpress is another really good builder
[9:24pm] wodensday: I like wordpress.
[9:24pm] Joe: I have used it a few times, a little clunky but you get used to it after some practice.
[9:24pm] wodensday: I've used it for just about any website I've ever felt the need to make
[9:25pm] Joe: Godaddy a unique website + wordpress = place to organize
[9:25pm] Yari: anyway, pmchi, if you need help with site building, you have lots of ppl to contact.
[9:26pm] Joe: Unfortunately, I am buried to my eye in work, so if we are not discussing anything formal, may I be excused?
[9:26pm] jokeefe: Godaddy has poor security
[9:26pm] Yari: once you have a site of some sort and another member, then we can add ILPP
[9:26pm] Yari: Joe of course
[9:26pm] pmchi: Thank you guys! I will work this week to set up a website. But would Bosun not count as the second ILPP member?
[9:26pm] Joe: Have a wonderful evening!
[9:27pm] jokeefe: Technically he is in WIPP
[9:27pm] Yari: pmchi - Bosun is right now the rep for WI
[9:27pm] jokeefe: you too Joe
[9:27pm] Joe left the chat room. (Quit: Connection closed)
[9:27pm] Yari: if he becomes ILPP, then we have no WIPP and we're back where we started
[9:28pm] Yari: so we need him to get the rest of the people in WI back on board and repping before we can come join you
[9:28pm] wodensday: Is the WIPP that small? I got the impression it was one of our best states
[9:29pm] Yari: wodensday - it has a number of people who are interested/knowledgeable, but very few active volunteers
[9:29pm] wodensday: Ah, makes sense
[9:29pm] Yari: we have lots of pull there, we just need to USE it
