Would be interesting to deal with this by putting yourself in the shoes of the person exhibiting that behaviour. They might feel they're doing the right thing despite others' opinions because they were so absolutely confident.

Dealing with somebody who has extremely positive effects on a community, but also has negative effects. Write a document that says how to deal with certain issues, and convey that to the problem person.

+
Focus on solutions rather than complaining about problems.
+
 
+
People behaving inappropriately often don't realising, and the first step is to identify that problem to the individual; lack of self-awareness.
+
 
+
Often any given behaviour isn't bad enough to provoke somebody to do anything about it.

+
Monkey, banana, water spray, ladder. (google it) http://johnstepper.com/2013/10/26/the-five-monkeys-experiment-with-a-new-lesson/
+

Educate newcomers to how things are done around here, but be open to new ideas from newcomers as well.

+
 
+
Having a code of conduct or other framework goes a long way to making the problem easier to deal with.
+
 
+
Act like gravity when enforcing boundaries; gravity doesn't care why you fell, but the consequence is the same.
+
 
+
People need to look at the *intent* of a code of conduct, rather than necessarily take it literally, and not all people do this.
+
 
+
Code of conduct is a good way to turn away trouble people at the door.
+
 
+
==== What has worked for you ====
+
 
+
 
+
Discussing the issues with the person, possibly privately, and possibly publicly. Having open discussions all the time decreases the tension and makes people more comfortable to have these discussions more often.
+
 
+
Having an idea where you want the conversation to start and end really helps with preventing the discussion from being derailed. Also rehearsing that discussion in your head beforehand.
+
 
+
Some people want to avoid conflict at all cost.
+
 
+
If you can't separate the behaviour and the person, it makes it easier to tell that person that they're no longer welcome. If, however, there's a chance the person can change, then they can be welcome as long as they don't exhibit that behaviour.
+
 
+
Wanting to be an accepting community for people with mental disabilities makes it really difficult to accept that the person can't be accepted.
+
 
+
Some people have mental disabilities, some are just willfully unpleasant, and some are both. When somebody is both, things are difficult.
+
 
+
Some people with disabilities are incorrectly treated, and it's hard to identify.
+
 
+
Many people with disabilities externalise the blame and as such get what they want from the community in the community's attempt to be accepting of all.
+
 
+
Need to be confident in having a solution, and being willing to take the repercussions. This is made easier by having a code of conduct or similar (such as the white ribbon) that you stick to that says "I won't be silent about this; I will stand up and do something about it"
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
==== Advice for past self ====
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
Have a clear decision on what behaviour is acceptable and how you respond to something that isn't acceptable.
+
 
+
Raising issues as early as possible; don't be silent, because often the person just needs the issue to be raised.
+
 
+
Have policies and processes before incidents occur.
+
 
+
Discuss early with other community organisers on perceived issues and possible solutions.
+
 
+
When you have a conversation about troubling behaviour, ensure the conversation ends in an action plan.
+
 
+
The community learns by the slow process, so it's often not possible to deal with an issue quickly, but hopefully we can learn from past conflicts and deal quicker with similar conflicts next time.

The Adapter Exchange

A place to for those needing adapters and those having adapters to… connect

Speakers will often need adapters to connect their devices to room projectors. Sometimes they won't have one that suits the setup at LCA. Delegates often bring adapters with them to LCA. Sometimes they might be able to help out speakers who don't have the one they need.

If you've brought along (an) adapter(s) with you, please list them here along with the contact method you're most likely to be monitoring during the conference so that a speaker who needs it can contact you quickly.

If you're a speaker who needs an adapter, please list it here. You never know.

Don't know which adapter you need?

Try looking at this helpful document.
