Keeping a group active is one thing. Bookkeeping every single activity every single month is another thing which I'm not in favor of.
For a creativity-based group like zip it's very hard to even keep track of all the activities a member decides to do in the first place. We're a group about unleashing your creative energy. Not an accountancy group.
If anything this will make it harder for me to keep it active because I'll be spending the time I barely even got on keeping track of all the activities from everyone every month rather than hosting some myself.
Also I should note that as with some other groups, we basically moved all of our activity over to discord rather than the forums at this moment. If these new rules are truly happening it would call for serious changes in the way we currently handle our stuff, and not in a necessarily good way.
Yes I know we got a GM member and probably are safe, but this is not just concern for ZIP I'm expressing. It's a concern for every single group that is in this situation who do not have the advantage of having a GM on the team.
In the end, all I can do is give my opinion and feedback, but I genuinely hope that this not going to be put down like hate and as a result not even considered. I understand that a system that makes it clearer which groups are dead and which aren't is needed, groups indeed are a mess right now and something needs to change. But this system is simply not the way.
