Dear TOG members and non-members,,
today, once again, at around 5pm, I stood in front of the locked gates
Of course, I did not literally stand at the gate, because I learned many
weeks ago that calling before trying to visit TOG is a good idea. Still
this is generating a lot of 'bad vibes' on my side, and not only 'since
My 3rd trial month is not over yet. I knew of the '3 month rule'
beforehand. What I completely misjudged is the number of times when
there is noone in TOG to open the door for probationary members. And I
am not talking 10am here, but late afternoon/early evening.
I don't know what other probationary members think about a locked TOG,
or what full members thought about that in the time they were not full
members yet. For myself, the subject line says it all and it looks like
TOG is trying to scare away prospective new members.
(For those unfamiliar with the term, see the Léon Prunelle section in
I would like to get feedback, from full, probationary and also
non-members. People in TOG keep organising open socials (even if
sometimes the event gets to be an open antisocial) so the scaring-off of
new people might be unintentional. And maybe I am the only one to see it
Apparently 'Computing Night' is on in a few minutes so I'll probably
see some of you then.
