Cause Area Expectations

  • Leave the area as clean or cleaner than you found it.
  • Please make sure to put money in the donation tin for consumables that you appreciated using so that we can replenish them.
  • Only use tools in the way they are intended to be used.
  • Only use tools you know how to use or have been inducted on.
  • Ask for help or guidance when you need it.
  • Because art and creativity is subjective and personal, please do not provide unsolicited critique, suggestions or help with someone’s project. Instead, you may wish to offer your help, but allow the crafter to decline.
  • Respect that some crafters may not want to break their focus to talk or answer questions. The exception to this rule is in the case of dangerous or disrespectful tool use and emergencies.

Process for becoming a Maintainer

Contact the Tool Supervisor(s) to assist with maintenance or improvements where instructed to do so. The Tool Supervisor(s) will give their recommendation to the Cause Leader, who will either:
Approve your position as Maintainer by forum post here: https://forum.hsbne.org/c/cause-effect/craft-punk and add your name to the Wiki, or
Speak to you privately about reasons you may not currently be suitable or needed for a position as a Maintainer for that tool.
The Cause Leader should provide feedback on how you might improve your eligibility, or may otherwise contribute to the cause by utilising your personal strengths.
Cause Members may overrule the cause leader’s decision by vote in any cause meeting (greater than 50% of quorum- including cause leader, standard)

Process for becoming a Supervisor

Show interest by demonstrating your ability to conduct self guided study and research about the tool or the related discipline. Demonstrate your safe use of the tool.
Check and update the wiki (where needed).
Improve the tool and/or outline your plan to maintain the tool and increase ease of access to general HSBNE members. Based on the outcomes of steps 1-4 and advice from other Supervisors, the Cause Leader will approve or deny your request by forum post here: https://forum.hsbne.org/c/cause-effect/craft-punk
Cause Members may overrule the cause leader’s decision by vote in any cause meeting (greater than 50% of corum- including cause leader)

Ongoing Budgets

Monthly Consumables Discretionary Budget: $100. This is for reimbursing purchases of consumables, small repair costs and small inexpensive tools required by the Cause to maintain usability of current major tools*, disciplines and room functionality.

Purchases that form part of this budget can be approved by the Cause Leader without a vote at a Cause Meeting. This budget does not roll over to the following month. Purchases are allocated to the budget of the month shown on the proof of purchase.

*Major tools refers to tools listed on the HSBNE wiki as a feature of Craft Punk.
