  • Great to be in the same area for camping with you all Idnorton (talk) 09:15, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • BBQ was epic! More fire things! Idnorton (talk) 09:15, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Food was awesome (it appears you can't go wrong as long as you have enough bacon and haloumi!) --Nav (talk) 10:04, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • If food time was missed for whatever reason, there was still food to eat / snack on --Stanto (talk) 12:33, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • It acted as a base to return to / gather at if you wanted to and knew others would be there with the option to retreat to your tent if you pitched elsewhere --Stanto (talk) 12:33, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Good choices for food - mostly didn't require plates & cutlery, or at best a cup (soup awkward in paper bowl but great from mug). Organisation also great, huge thanks guys! RorschachUK (talk) 12:31, 5 September 2014 (UTC)


If you're adding negative feedback please remember to be constructive and add a suggestion on how things may have been done differently.

  • Nail the village tent to the floor more securely first time ;) Idnorton (talk) 09:15, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Some of the shinies never got a chance to come out and play, maybe due to space - I never got to operate on Frank! RorschachUK (talk) 12:31, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Ideas for next time

  • Need someone who is going to be at the village most of the time to act as coordinator, make sure food is started on time etc. Thinkl33t (talk) 09:19, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Need a sign of some kind, I'm not sure people knew who we were or if they were directed to us how to find us Idnorton (talk) 09:15, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
    • I have a source for reasonably priced banners (from small to the size of the side of a big tent) --Nav (talk) 10:10, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Separate tent for shiny from kitchen / storage (like hsnotts had) Thinkl33t (talk) 09:21, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
    • I may be able to borrow a big green 24'x12' tent - obviously transporting that requires some planning --Nav (talk) 10:10, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
    • TBH I'd rather rent the village tent(s) next time. The garage was a good idea from a price POV but was a pain to move around, a bit too small, and i CBA putting it up / taking it down again Thinkl33t (talk) 10:46, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
      • +1 to that. There wasn't enough room to put out the stuff that was brought :( Idnorton (talk) 11:27, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Need to bring the coffee machine again next time Idnorton (talk) 09:15, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • FLAGS / hackspace banners Thinkl33t (talk) 09:22, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
    • We have some Leeds hackspace banners - they're just bulks and weren't sufficiently high up my list of things to bring. --Nav (talk) 10:10, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
    • We brought a vertical York banner with us but in the absence of one for each of the other groups too we thought it would be a bit unrepresentative - maybe next time banners for each group and/or a Roses emblem of some sort to rule them all RorschachUK (talk) 12:31, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
    • We were meant to bring the HacMan sign, but I didn't have time to load it and all the other stuff people wanted to bring JimM (talk) 15:48, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Getting connected to the wifi was a PITA (so much so that I didn't bother attempting to get my raspberry pi radar connected). Probably worth coordinating any "connected" projects and maybe going for wired through our own switch? --Nav (talk) 10:07, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
