unless amanda rush deleted the u-syndication link, it looks like the indienews mention about "Converting png files to jpg files while using a screen reader" might be related to problematic mark up in her larger feed where the prior post "Some thoughts on: My Url Is..." was purposely syndicated. ???

She needs to remove the Jetpack share buttons to start

In a car now, can't look closely, but she will be happy to help figure out what to do

I'm tempted to put that up as "gdpr banner" on my site with a tiny footnote that by the way, I don't store anything, this is just a heads up for everyone out there

If I had a banner, it would be inserted by JS, so NoScript users would never see it :-)

jjuran, you could also make sure to style the banner with a class like "ad", to make sure every adblocker in existence is going to silently hide it ;)

!tell schmarty, [manton], calumryan, jkphl, aaronpk, adactio, swegnat, [tmiller], dougbeal For HWC in 2019, since we haven't had a HWC meetup in a couple of weeks now, we could start 2019 with either January 2nd, or January 9th. The 9th would be the regular date, two weeks after the 26th when we had scheduled but canceled. So that's what I'm leaning towards. Fellow HWC organizers WDYT?
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next

swegnat - when you try to get both sven (sknebel) and me mentioned in one go? ;)

Chance that I am available for HWC is pretty small on the second, actually. Not sure about 9th, but at least it’ll be a slightly better chance
#
[tantek]
Zegnat, yes, would like your opinion 🙂
#
[schmarty]
i lean towards jan 9

#
[tantek]
We need to start creating the pages and growing templates for 2019
#
[schmarty]
however i am no longer a direct hwc organizer! need to connect with [tmiller] and see what she thinks for a next HWC at Pace

Hi guys yes [schmarty] I need to plan the next one schools on break and I’m finally free from finals to plan
#
[tantek]
schmarty can you connect the new HWC Baltimore (co-)organizer here?
#
[schmarty]
[jonathanprozzi] peeks in from time to time when mentioned :} i think he was leaning towards 1/9 week as well
#
[schmarty]
[tmiller] hi! hooray! grats on finishing finals!
#
[tantek]
!tell sknebel do you want to try using just the new HWC pages that you were working on with Kaja for 2019? Or should we continue with the current/past custom pages (one per date with all locations in it) for the month of January?
#
Loqi
Ok, I'll tell them that when I see them next
#
[tantek]
based on how that answer goes, we can figure out how to create links for https://indieweb.org/Template:Homebrew_Website_Club for the 2019 HWC event pages
#
sknebel
I planned on going with jan 9th, continuing the sequence

#
sknebel
[tantek]: I had hoped to have it ready for the new year, but not quite - since I really don't want to flip-flop on it, I'd vote for handling january in the old style
#
sknebel
and then hopefully get february set up during january with the new system
#
[tantek]
No problem. It's ready when it's ready 🙂

[tantek] how do we want to go about the travel budget committee?
#
[tantek]
welcome back [tmiller] and yes congrats on finishing finals!
#
[tantek]
for the travel budget, I think we need specific planned IndieWebCamps that we have enough lead time to support
#
[tantek]
Austin is too soon. New Haven is likely too soon also (and frankly needs a solid co-organizer to help [jgmac1106], otherwise I fear it won't come together - too hard to do one by yourself)

and Düsseldorf still needs organizers (the dates are aligned to Beyond Tellerand conference in the same city)

and we need to figure out a date for the IndieWebSummit
#
[tmiller]
[tantek] okay make sense, I can draft some proposed guidelines for it and we can go from there I think
[schmarty] joined the channel
#
[tantek]
[tmiller] so right now we don't actually have any IWCs that we can reasonably ask people to apply for. So the best we can do to "go about the travel budget committee" is to get dates and organizers confirmed for Düsseldorf, Summit, and possibly Berlin (I think Yulia can help us again with a late April or maybe early May date - perhaps weekend before Düsseldorf)
#
[tmiller]
What does one need to do as a co-organizer for an iwc? Depending on what needs to be done I may be able to assist with the new haven one with [jgmac1106]
#
[tantek]
[tmiller] did you see the guidelines and form we used for Summit last year? Perhaps check those out (on 2018.indieweb.org) as a starting point of the kind of materials we need
#
[tmiller]
No I hadn’t seen it but will take a look
#
[tantek]
[tmiller] I believe from the experience and post-mortem from NYC, New Haven may need a lead planner as it were, someone who keeps track of all the pieces and makes sure that there's a co-organizer assigned/working on it that can get each piece done.

[tmiller] here's a good read for "What does one need to do as a co-organizer for an iwc?" https://indieweb.org/IndieWebCamp_Organizing
#
[tmiller]
Thanks [tantek] I’ll look into both links so I can figure out the budget stuff and if I’d be able to help co-organize . I agree that we need something that keeps what happened at the NYC from occurring again

I don't know what is required

GWG: 1. read https://indieweb.org/IndieWebCamp_Organizing, 2: ask [manton] what he can use help with

2 is my plan

I can roll with [tmiller] anytime. Learning and events take all the help
