The Plenum is a regular meeting of all people involved with the space to talk about things, and decide stuff.

If you have stuff to add, go right ahead! Please sign your points with your name (by adding a "--~~~~" after your text).


  • The Plenum is an institution to decide on what the space should look like, physically and in other ways, such as virtually.
  • Things concerning the space should be discussed at a plenum.
  • Everyone who's there can participate in that process, member or otherwise.
  • Everyone can head a plenum, no need for board members to do that.
  • Topics should ideally be announced on the Plenum wiki page beforehand
  • The Plenum should be held in a language that everyone participating understands.
  • Scheduling: second Thursday of the month at 8pm

Next Plenum: Thursday, October 8th at 8pm.

Topics for the Plenum

Disclaimer online plenum

Holding an online plenum is no new process and we will only do this do try it out during the time the space is closed. Doing online plenums in the future needs plenum approval. In case we decide to do online plenums in the future this acts as a proof of concept.

Stuff from the past

What was discussed at the last Plenum? What's the current status of those things? 20200910 Plenum

Anything you don't feel comfortable within the space? What would you like to change or to be changed?

Is there anything that's bothering you?

The Precious Plastic Stuff ist taking up more Space than we agreed on.

Besides that there have been Stored more private Materials (that are not free to use) without Plenum approval. All in all this leads to a messy Pit. I suggest a Deadline of 4 weeks to remove the Material and a Deadline of 2 weeks for the Precious Plastic Stuff to be downsized Back again.

I further suggest removing the PP Stuff completely until April 2021.


Pay attention to your stuff on the project pallet

  • First issue is that people are not paying attention to the 7-day lifespan of the projects. Please remove your stuff within 7 days or extend the date on the sheet. Even people that were working on stuff did not extend the date. We should start removing stuff after the time period, so the 7-day rule is being taken more seriously and everyone has space to store stuff on the pallet.
  • Stuff is being thrown on the pallet that could easily go into a eurobox and does not seem to be part of a project but misc. building materials. Please do not misuse the project pallet for the same reason, giving everyone a fair chance to store their project.

Things to Buy

  • 6 x Euro box 40 x 30 x 23,5cm as "consumables" and stock storage for the workshop on the newly mounted shelf, price per box 13,12 € (probably cheaper) ( via Sammelbestellung.
  • 5 Meter spiral tube for workshop pressure, around 20 €. --C22 (talk) 11:43, 7 October 2020 (CEST)
  • 6 One handed clamp for the workshop... a lot of our old (very cheap china clamps) don't work anymore. Meier brought a wolfcraft in and it's been in use all the time. But sometimes you need more than 2 clamps, so that would be super handy. One costs around 21.40€ (Wolfcraft 3031000 100-700).
  • [1] for the workshop vacuum, so we can put the "auto-on-off" function in place! ~ 12€
