Are you going to do this on an individual-by-individual basis, or based on usernames (or something else)?
Where live, do the offer adult reading classes?
I agree with Thork. Things are going fine here, and I don't see a need to change that. We've never been as close knit of a community as this past year.

A brief look at what's possible suggests that we should be able to merge existing accounts as well as attribute posts from deleted accounts to users (e.g. Thork's old posts). But, of course, we won't do anything people wouldn't want, so an individual basis sounds safest.
i also took an online quiz that said i was a giraffe. and i guess you're dumb enough to believe that i must be because the internet said so.
No one seems to have commented on Daniel's running of all the merch. A task he has failed at repeatedly and as mentioned is a source of major embarrassment. Can't we make 3rd partying it a part of the negotiation? He obviously finds it a chore anyway, which is why he does it so infrequently. I hate it that someone who puts so little in, is leader forever. I don't think I'm going to win that argument. I just think its wrong that someone who hasn't bothered with the society since its first year still runs it 9 years later. How do you ever get rid of such a person? The only answer we found was to go elsewhere.
There is free speech and there is being an annoying twat. This user is exercising his right to the latter.
Can I not have an alt of the same username?
What about the spambot/DoS accounts? Will they get merged too?
Quote from: Vauxhall on December 28, 2014, 03:17:42 AMI also do not see a need for the ZC. Just thought I'd throw that out there.I'm still not even sure what it does or why it's necessary. It just seems like a weird, political, Thork (did he even come up with it? it seems like something he would) brainchild with no real purpose.

That's how far the horizon is, not how far you can see.
I also share Thork's concern about the merchandise, but with no one here haven taken up the merch role I suppose it's moot. Let the merger begin.
What of the concerns? Merchandising, web control, membership, etc?
Are you just looking to get a general yes and push through without addressing these, or will you go back with the community concerns and try to renegotiate?
