I know that there was a few attempts like this before and they didn't change anything. However, I think we are capable of being a community, all we need is get our act together and start thinking seriously about it.
I suggest to schedule regular team meetings, twice a month. This way we'll start communicating with each other, we'll get to know each other and we'll be able to set our goals as a community.
To agree on the the best dates/time for our regular meetings, please vote (see poll above).
