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If you do not publish on time, you are kicked out of the club.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

More! No limit on the membership.

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?

I'll add a new rule about joining Element chat room for discussion and reminders.

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

Let me know if you need help.

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.

I'd love to be added to the club. I'll soon be publishing an article(possibly next week)
