Rules

Standard Hackspace rules apply plus the following:

  • Shower before attending and wear clean clothes, smelly participants will be turned away.
  • Don't abuse the network/internet or in any way make it unusable for other hackspace users.
  • Keep nerd rage to the non-offensive kind.
  • Headphones please! No speakers.
  • Be sensible about noise, this is still a work space. (joyful shouting is fine, as long as it's not constant)
  • Don't take up more than one table. If we have a lot showing up we may need to budge up to two per table.
  • Only bring 1 monitor, if you are using a laptop, either use the built in screen OR a monitor, not both.

We reserve the right to remove anyone for any reason (though we really don't want to do this!), these events are starting to get bigger and better and we can only do that if the rules are followed.
