When you create a new topic to report an issue or make a request, you are encouraged to “mention” the appropriate “team” of Volunteers so they can be aware that there is something they may be able to help with.
Below is a list of the current custom groups (other than the members’ only group - which cannot be mentioned/tagged).
NOTE: When you mention (“tag”) any of the teams below, keep in mind that they are Case Sensitive. If you happen to start typing “team_” then a drop-down menu should appear and you can select the group that way. If you do not opt to select the group from the drop-down menu, then you must capitalize the first letter of each word exactly how it’s shown in the list below.
@Team_3D_Fab @Team_Aerospace @Team_Automotive @Team_Blacksmithing @Team_Calendar @Team_Civic_Hacking @Team_Education @Team_Creative_Arts @Team_Digital_Media @Team_Electronics @Team_Finance @Team_Fired_Arts @Team_HAAS @Team_Hatchers @Team_Infrastructure @Team_Jewelry @Team_Laser @Team_Logistics @Team_Machine_Shop @Team_Metal_Shop @Team_Moderators @Team_PR @Team_Science @Team_VCC @Team_Vector @Team_Woodshop @Committee_Chairs <-- NOTE: This is a "Special Case Use ONLY" tag. See below for more details
By the “
@Committee_Chairs” tag being a Special Case Use ONLY tag, what I mean is that using it to mention the current chairs should be used sparingly - such as on the following types of threads: The twice a year Committee Chair elections threads to notify the current chairs that elections are coming up and meetings need to be scheduled; threads to notify the current chairs of “Special Chairperson Meetings” that may be scheduled from time to time to let them know them know about the upcoming special meeting; threads that act as a Call to Action for current committee chairs (such as when PR or other committees reach out to chairs for information gathering purposes like updating New Member Handbooks, etc…).
ATTN: Committee Chairs, please review the members listed in any groups associated with your committee and request any additions/removals either as a reply to this thread or via PM to @Team_Infrastructure so we can ensure that the appropriate volunteers are notified when a group is “mentioned”.
ALL: If you find yourself being “tagged” for issues/requests that you do not wish to be tagged in, please let Infrastructure know by replying to this thread or via PM, so you can be removed from the custom group.
PLEASE REMEMBER DALLAS MAKERSPACE IS AN ALL VOLUNTARY RUN COMMUNITY.
Our volunteers will handle the reported issues as quickly as possible; however, there is no guaranteed time frame for resolution - due to the voluntary nature of how things work around here.
Please consider volunteering to help maintain some of our resources to help keep things running as smooth as possible here! Thanks!
