Keeping the space more clear of big stuff
It's good to have a bit of space to build projects in, and it's good to store some projects in the space. But stored projects can become forgotten and start to take over which means there's much less space for everyone.
Lets try and figure out a system which is easy to understand and makes more of a balance between these things

charge for storage Closed 11:02am - Tuesday 30 Oct 2018
every member (currently) gets an equivalent bin-sized space on the shelves. however there are also lots of massive piles o’ junk belonging to folks that are preventing new members from getting space to put their bins. a cluttered space may also scare away new members. proposed: if you want more storage, there are areas set aside for rental for large projects at a rate of around $15 per week

Perhaps the price could reflect size & demand - small slots cheaper, and if noone is using it make it cheaper too?

This is hard to enforce and can’t be enforced by everyone (needs someone with access to accountants check). While an storage area with labelled items and dates can be „policed“ by any member.

Current space abuse is already in violation of the established group norm. I doubt that asking space wasters to pay for future space wasting is going to stop people from littering the space.
I think this mostly is a communication issue. Hence I prefer there colourful lines to fence non-clutter spaces. Also colour! We could also colour-code or label dangerous areas or places that are supposed to to be protected from dust. Or just print a manual for the space of the floor.

I like the idea very much and keen to test it for a bit BUT before we roll it out could we decide on 1/ What space could we offer for large projects, since currently there is very little free? and 2/ How do we enforce people to pay for their space / move it out when they don't?

Making a day to build more shelves upstairs and put labels on things Closed 10:02am - Wednesday 31 Oct 2018
Perhaps we could start a project to build shelves upstairs (or scavenge some) and get more storage space out of the room upstairs? Then label stuff?

Tape zones onto the floor Closed 10:02am - Wednesday 31 Oct 2018
We have begun experimenting with just tape!
I think the other proposals need zones anyway, so lets zone the floor with wild colors
Maybe two different zones 'NO OVERNIGHT CLEARWAY' which is just for working on stuff while you're there and should be clear of everything overnight
and different color 'STORAGE ZONE' which is limited in size and for labelled stuff with your phone number, name and date
I think in front of the rollerdoor and stairs is 'clearway'
beside the CNC to the light is clearway
in front of the toilet is clearway
Maybe in the space freed up by the Injection Moulder leaving, to the wall

Paint is pretty permanent. What about: paint wild colours (maybe 50cm or 1 meter squares) then use tape & signs to indicate which squares are which zones. Tape & signs can be more easily changed

Edit: I think we can give people the option to pay more for storage but I generally feel like we shouldn’t become a storage facility. Suggestion: First option is free storage for active projects in marked zone. If x time passes (8weeks?) members can point project out and suggest storage option.
Original: This is hard to enforce and can’t be enforced by everyone (needs someone with access to accountants check). While an storage area with labelled items and dates can be „policed“ by any member.
