@Etonkovidova what do you think about the rules?

You have to publish a post every 2-4 weeks.

every 4 weeks looks more reasonable to me (but if someone wants to publish more frequently - there should not be any penalty :)).

If you do not publish on time, you are kicked out of the club.

There should be a notification/discussion system in place - to help people to remember to contribute and to discuss what they want to contribute - sort of an ongoing writing club conversation. And "out-of-writing club" status should stay only until an author explicitly asks to come back :)

The club can have maximum 5 members at any time.

More! No limit on the membership.

Start date: 2020-10-01.

Looks ok to me.

I've updated the rule to be one post every month.

I'll add a new rule about joining Element Zulip chat room for discussion and reminders. I would prefer to keep the rules simple. If you don't want to write a blog post each month, you are kicked out of the club and that's how the story ends. You can join another writing club later.

The club can have maximum 5 members at any time.

I think the limit makes sense. It's better to have more smaller clubs than just one big. I've increased the maximum to 10. I've also added a note that the maximum can be changed. Sounds good?

Please log in Element Zulip, so I can invite you to the super-secret room. :)

All communication happens at invite-only private Element Zulip group writing-club.

@Etonkovidova @jbolorinos-ctr the writing club has started on October 1!

I wrote an article (https://filipin.eu/vscode-neovim).

To become club members:

  • Join Element Zulip and ping me so I can add you to the super-secret club group.
  • Write an article (either on your blog, qte blog...).

Let me know if you have any questions or if you need help.
