8. My thoughts in response
1. Well, except for October2011 in Freedom Plaza which just got raided. That was being planned since last April and OWS, An? and other groups teed off of their scheduled day of action for the start of Occupy Everywhere (OccupyTogether) which is the national movement. So it might be worth clarifying, given that DC is now depending on the March mall mobilization to survive and has gotten backbiting from certain OWS folks.

Though I don't think it's necessary to say "the Occupy movement" when "Occupy" will do. I have no problem with the following phrase "the values of Occupy Wall Street".

This really is a concern because there are people (especially in NY) who may associate Occupy with OWS-NY only.

Also I just realized that like a nonprofit, Occupy has no members so we could say --

"A place for Occupy participants and supporters to promote the values of Occupy Wall Street"

(instead of "Occupy Wall Street members and supporters to promote the values of Occupy Wall Street")

Does anyone like that wording?

2. A pinned check-in thread may or may not be necessary, if there is one I'm not against it, but... actually that kind of reinforces my argument for simply adding where DUers can check in. Personally, I really want something in the SoP that can be interpreted as a welcoming signal for persons on other forums, especially GD3 and DU2 (without specifying other forums! i'm talking DUers here) so that it's understood that it's not just a subforum for persons who are members of a specific DU3 group where everyone else is only entitled to lurk (a la "the so and so group" or "the such and such pro-occupy committee"). I.e. not a hugbox.
