45th Anniversary (Closed)
MFS members' comments are sought on the following proposals, by Wednesday 21 January 2015:
Main Page (Closed)
MFS Organisers are invited to comment on a Main Page Proposal and Draft Content by Wednesday 21 January 2015. This paper proposes a new Main Page structure and content, a new "Latest News" page, and revised Style Guide.
You can join the Canberra Folk Say conversation, without logging in, by sending an email with your public comments to: canberra-folk-say(at)googlegroups(dot)com
You can send your comments direct to MFS Committee by email to
secretary(at)mfs(dot)org(dot)au CC president(at)mfs(dot)org(dot)au
Replacing (at) with @ and (dot) with .
So that your comments can be taken into account by MFS Committee when making decisions, please comment, or let us know that you are going to comment, before any closing date shown above.
Many proposals appear to MFS Committee to be clearly in the society's interest. But we still give you an opportunity to provide comments, in case we have not thought of something, and so that you know what we are considering. But it is not in anyone's interest to hold up decisions if there are no problems.
The expectation is that if folk are going to reply, they can normally reply by the closing date, plus a period of grace of a day or two that we always allow.
If you let us know that you are going to provide consultation comments that is great and we are delighted, and of course we will wait a reasonable time. Just request an extension of the consultation period.
There is always a down side, and that is the possibility of folk saying they are going to respond, and not getting around to it. We hope you will understand that we cannot wait for an unreasonable amount of time. If you ask for a reasonable extension, of course we will agree. But then after a period of grace we will have to go with whatever responses we have received at the closing date, for the greater good.
If post-implementation comments are received, then any decision can be re-visited and maybe improved.
Please Identify All Comments
The automatic identification of comment authors is unreliable, so please sign-off your comments by typing your name at the end of them. Anonymous comments are not appropriate in this context.
Why Google Docs?
Google documents are meant to be worked on collaboratively by many people via the web. They are stored on the Google server and do not use any of our disk space and bandwidth. Google documents are suitable as a vehicle for seeking consultation comments. All you need is a web browser to view or edit a document.
If you are creating a document that needs to be shared, please consider creating the document in Google Docs and then just send us the address. Or email secretary(at)mfs(dot)org(dot)au and ask the secretary to create a shared document and send you the link so you can edit it.
Cannot Open Google Documents
Some older browsers are not supported by Google Docs. There may be other operating environments that do not allow Google Docs but do allow simple web browsing.
The web links below are provided as an alternative. If you wish to comment, please provide your comments using email.
