Anonymity Hints

Many groups have enabled the Zoom “waiting room” feature for the safety of our group members. Please be patient. If you have not already done so, please change your Zoom account first/last name to first name and location (or as you may prefer) to protect and foster the principle of personal anonymity. Names like “zoom user” and “iPhone” may not be admitted. Please introduce yourself to the hosting staff in private chat upon entry to speed up the process in the future. Thank you for your cooperation as we try to keep these meetings a safe and welcoming place for all.
