There has to be context to this, now that we have moved from the main topic and now dedicate this thread to solve issues that Jonathan has expressed. Maybe we can start a new thread.

To be clear, Jonathan has repeatedly used little tact when releasing information to the public. The e.V. Board received complaints and requests to manage the situation. We decided to do so and work with Jonathan to review his publication practices in social media. On his insistence, we worked to have a more clear policy of access to social media. Policy that Jonathan himself would follow. The Board agreed that this could help shape the way that Jonathan and others provide public, WIP information to the general public and have more tact when doing so.

Why is this still an issue that requires the CWG? I am not even sure. I thought Jonathan was over this when we did as he required, create an access policy within Promo.

Thank you,
