Re: [Ambassadors] Active/Inactive Ambassadors+task+some idea

Have you read the proposal (not the newest) ?

When we talk about inactive people we don't talk about people that don't
follow Mailing list or weekly meeting, we talk about people do nothing.

I think this thread have given us more clear vision of Ambassadors role and responsibility, and i really appreciate people who take interest in this project and they are worried about its future, this is true that no body can give full time to this project as we all, at least most of us are full time employee and all we do is on volunteer basis, but still if we have taken a responsibility then we should give something to community.

It is a good idea to tag Ambassadors inactive if they d'nt show any progress, it does not mean that this will take them away from Fedora Community , but it should be realize by them self that ok if we are not doing something for whole one year, at least i should put my self inactive, there is no harm to his feeling or attachment with the project. And we should not talk about the number , we should stick to quality of Ambassadors work.

I know that this thread is a little bit long but i encourage you to read
some messages, because i have underlined this thing one a lot of time.

Stay sure, we don't want to "kill" people, we know the different needs
of each ambassador. We want to shake people that do nothing. You aren't
in this list, be sure.
