This was discussed at various MMMM and at a board meeting and it was agreed that Access Control was the best way forward (rather than cameras or other methods including shutting down the area) This post actually states what to do if you have difficulty accessing the area (use the hackspace helpdesk) which we monitor a lot more closely than forum posts. We have backups in place for access to W/D in the event of fobs not working (or being locked in) but they arent suitable to be posted publicly but by using the helpdesk or contacting a board member via telegram one of us would have been able to assist in getting you access back to W/D.
In regards to your forum messages I must say that as one of the people involved and who gave up my time to help get the ACS installed I take offence at being called a tosser and would remind you that our Code of Conduct applies to all digital infrastructure of the Hackspace as well as within the space itself and urge you to remember that in any future posts.
We are working hard to build a community a place where like minded people can work on projects, share tools, share ideas etc and part of that is trying to ensure people take responsibility for the space, clean up after themselves, improve the space etc and we hope the Access Control system to Woody Dusty will help towards this as we are now able to see any correlation (and take any neccessary action) in terms of people using Woody Dusty and it being left in an unusable and potentially unsafe state which infuriates most other members.
As mike says you can send any complaints to the board via the email address, also I checked and your password reset email has been sent twice and was accepted by your mail server according to our mail logs. If you are still experiencing difficulty accessing the members system please contact the infrastructure sub committee via the Hackspace Helpdesk.
