The only problem I had with transcripting those government question hour meetings in the past was the question: When is a meeting like this "quorate" and needs to be transcripted. We have private talks in the beginning of all our meetings which are not meant to be posted at the forum. And I have been at a few government question hours before where I was alone with one official or only two close friends where the chat has become very RL related and private.Any official government meeting, especially one held to comply with law, should be held on public land and have an official public record.
But I think this problem can be solved easily if we change No5. into:
5. The Chair will keep a transcript of the meeting after it got called to order (and informed attending citizens the meeting will be transcripted from now on) and post it to the CDS forums. The Chair may also choose to include a summary of the content of the meeting.
Also - sadly - we will have to restrict ourselves one more time so not to talk about topics which are not meant to be published in the "Daily News"
But as Calli said before, for this kind of talk we can always have brunches on our private parcels to come in closer touch with citizens who normally don´t come to official meetings for whatever reasons.
The good thing at changing the law so we have Official question hours to only once a month is that this gives us room to hold unofficial non transcripted brunches during the rest of the time
