This is generally very good. Access at least to the membership applications should be to all directors so that we know when to raise objections to a particular application. I would still prefer if we were asking dates of birth instead of age or age ranges. A person's DOB never changes, and in the case of teens it lets us know when they become legally eligible to become a director. Instead of citizenship, we are more concerned with Canadian residency status, of which Canadian citizenship is a subset. If someone is a citizen of some other country, we don't care which.

You're probably right about the first point—at least for basic information—it would be difficult to tell some directors that they can't see items. Asking for birth dates give us more detailed information, but it would also be useful for scamming, so we shouldn't ask for it if we don't need it. I think that what country people are from is interesting information, but it certainly is not something that we have to ask. Jeffery Nichols (Arctic.gnome) (talk) 00:48, 10 May 2011 (EDT)
Using birthdates for scamming won't happen if this information is restricted. It's not a part of the information normally required to be released even to general members seeking to influence a vote or election. Regarding residency the criterion is to have a visa to be legally in Canada, but I don't think we need to spend a lot of time verifying the fact. For our purposes, being here on a visa should usually be consistent with a Canadian mailing address. Eclecticology 06:49, 10 May 2011 (EDT)
