Guests and propping the door

  • Nate B has concerns about folks in the space that nobody signs in
    • He dropped by on Saturday and found the door propped open with several people who hadn't been signed in as guests.
    • He would like to clarify that if such a person breaks something, whoever propped the door will be held responsible.
    • Kevin and David added that if the door is propped open and you don't know why, don't feel bad about kicking out the block and closing te door.
    • Nate tells a story about a person who would say they were so-and-so's guest and get let in and then proceeded to break things. That's not ok. Go get so-and-so and have them sign in their guest.
