-    * Quelab will start seeing our friends from the Mini Maker Faire working in the space on Mondays. Please be aware of this activity if you need to schedule an event. The closer to the faire in August we get the busier Quelab will become on Mondays. Anyone who wants to join is welcome to do so! Plus, you get to help assemble the super cool badges that MMF has. +    * Quelab will start seeing our **friends from the Mini Maker Faire working in the space on Mondays**.

-    * One of the more complicated activities this month was working with Drew over his being moderated on the members list. His complaint against the board was that there was no set structure/​rule to the moderation. Though the board found that he had indeed violated the Freedom of Expression and Ant-harassment policies it was decided that his moderation would be immediately terminated because there is not actual written policy on moderation. We are now working on developing a policy for clarity and fairness. Quelab is everyone'​s space, so we would very much like your thoughts on this. Email the board or I encourage you to have civil conversations on the members list expressing how you want your community run. Consider this one of the very important ways you can help Quelab reflect its' members+    ​* **One of the more complicated activities this month was working with Drew over his being moderated on the members list**.
