There are many small and little things that need doing, that we could all do, which would go a long way to help make the space a nicer place. We are going to call these things papercut's. We aim to list these papercut's so users of the space can identify and maybe eradicate them.

What will doing a Papercut achieve

These are the sort of papercuts we're after:

  • Improves the general usability of the space
  • Asked repeatedly by newcomers
  • Makes it a nicer place

What is a Papercut

If you add a papercut it must meet these critera

  • Easily identifiable job that takes no more than 5-30 minutes by atleast one person (more the merrier)
  • Obvious how to achieve the task, or clear instructions provided in a separate wiki page.
  • Will not negatively affect anything else

Feel free to add suggested solutions, but please add a date to any suggestions so we don't get knee-jerk fixes. If suggested solutions are complex, please create a wiki page under your username and link it. If you've already fixed something, put it in <s>strikethrough</s>


  1. Recycling: relabel the bins to make it clear that we can't actually do recycling ms7821 21:10, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
  2. Put the bucket bass high horizontally on the wall in the social area using some hooks it can rest on amx109 21:10, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
    1. gets it out of the way but keeps it accessible. should be easy enough to put up, and get down.
  3. Mount a used laser tube above doorway to the 'main' room. It looks pretty. amx109 21:10, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
  4. Add secondary shelf to the quiet room to provide additional storage space - the wood is already in the room under the desks. Just needs mounting. See Phil/cepmender for info amx109 21:10, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
    1. The desks in the quiet room get moved around, this may not be the most appropriate place for storage. Robert 21:16, 26 August 2011 (UTC)
  5. Move coat hooks from main social area into the far rear+left toilet
  6. Make the wiring to the board more robust, perhaps mount electronics on a nice lasercut plaque similar to the power use display.Every time the wiring gets knocked the board throws a hissy fit and has to be reset.
  7. Simply clean your desk after you've used it. Wipe up any coffee stains, etc.
