The space is primarily a place of work, it is not an hotel.
As one who quite regularly works here all night and then catches a few
hours before going to work I am very aware that being able to do so is a

members turn up, and expect to get a nights sleep, even to the extent of
complaining that noise was being made!!! The answer that they got was very
There should be no question of "checking with others" whether they want to
work, work is the purpose of the space, the majority of members expect and
require to be able to get on with their projects regardless of the hour of
day or the noise they make. While I would not deliberately wake people up
for no reason, if this happens as a byproduct of legitimate use of the
space then sadly the sleeper must suffer.
As for the camera issue, this has been flogged to death and beyond.
Personally, I don`t care whether they are there or not and the "I don`t

Phil and Mark have summarised it well. Our point of view has always
been clear, but perhaps people just need reminding. I suppose we
should probably condense it into a rule.
