Regarding trending topics rule in How Things Work and if groups should be able to appeal even though they have been declined previously. Everyone
How Speaker Series is different from trending topics (program) Keaton
Trending topics is a different process than treasury Sydney

This is how it works, we have it for a reason Josh
We were the ones who made the choice, not exec Minki
