2020 (Radically Regular Radically Do-ocratic) Newsletter - CANCELLED

DU Alina, also known as Universe Public Seen by 47

This adventure is currently on hold due to exceptional circumstances.

A special newsletter to inform the community of what is happening on KB side is being drafted by @Remy Schneider (thank you!) and scheduled for 17th of March.

馃帀This thread is dedicated to the 18.03.2020 Edition of the RRRD Newsletter!

Guide & Realizer: Myself (Alina) am here by your side and guide you through the process if you decide to bravely go where (you) or the KB Newsletter has never gone before.

Newsletter maker for this edition: @Alina, also known as Milda!

Take over, rule, make the Newsletter as a piece of your individual KB awesomeness, as a group or as a Kiez!


  1. Important community topics

    Choose your own way to collect information. Example: ping relevant people to come to this thread to pitch content, actively go bug the event coordination team, come to the Realizer meeting, read up on Talk, consult Realities etc.

    Then, make a decision on what goes out.

    TIP: ideally, not more than 5 topics to not bore everyone to death = no info overkill. TIP: edit copy for eXXXtra personality, put your own spin on it (leaving the essence of the info intact, of course).

  2. Hot Talk Thread of the week

    We want to lovingly seduce our community into partaking more in Talk fun. Pick a thread that you want to guide our peeps to. Tip: make sit sexy AF even when the thread is not!

  3. "Wacky window" (a.k.a. your stage):

    Take over, go wild, inspire, entertain, provoke, write, sing, show - this is your moment of KB fame. You know you want to 馃槑


  • use this thread to pitch your need to the maker. Please allow the Newsletter maker to make the final decision on what goes out (in case of lots of topics). The newsletter needs to remain readable and fun over (too)functional.


  • will be: 1st of April! (he he he you just want to take over this one, right?)

would be nice to have this in the newsletter:

An update:

Of course, things have changed rapidly in the last 3-4 days, so the nature of the newsletter will change.

I have just called @Franzi who mentioned that a Board meeting is happening today or tomorrow. I will stay tuned here and actively reach out to the Board and the event coordination team.

It would be a good time to use the Newsletter to our community to share what thinking is going on on our side (and it is VOLL in ORDNUNG to say that we have no idea right now - this is too unprecedented) - but some news would be a good thing?

I would personally like to add a message of love/solidarity/encouragement to that.

@Erin Jeavons-Fellows do you have some input? You are probably coordinating something on Facebook? Let stay connected so that we can time it well+together?

Pinging people involved in Board/Event Coordination Team

@Hanna-Maija (Animal) @Alexxx @Bee @CJ Yetman @Veroca R. Sala @Sven Dudink @Cris @Cl茅ment Marchand Le Poittevin @waldo @Saskia (The Fuzzy Facilitator) @Erin Jeavons-Fellows

Communicating to our community in times of uncertainty. For transparency/paper trail please respond here. Brief is fine.


  1. We have not shared any kind of "statement" with the larger community yet.

  2. The "normal" newsletter is/was scheduled for tomorrow, but it's not "business as usual" anymore, obviously.


I propose that we still send the newsletter out. Simply to share what is going on for us (does not need to be a decision). I offer to make it and send it.

It does make sense to wait till the Board meeting has happened and there is a common thread that we can communicate.

Where do people stand right now? Also, may I listen into the Board meeting or get the notes straight after?

Hey @Alina, also known as Milda! the board met tonight. We had a newsletter scheduled for Wednesday, but the board would like to send out a special edition tomorrow. We will update you asap.

The main point will be an update to the statement made on the 10th of March.

Would be nice to let people know about dream guiding positions being open.

Whoops, wasn't supposed to be an answer Re. Waldo

Nice one. Could you give me one or two sentences on this (will be edited, do not worry about precise wording, as long as meaning is conveyed). And is there a thread on Talk or particular section on Talk you'd like people to go to?


Alina, also known as Universe Fri 13 Mar 2020 9:33PM

could make this happen. what's the important bit of info to communicate? give the maker some good lines, what's interesting about this?
