So.

I have a monitor and keyboard in the front office area, marked as "approval required". It gets used nearly every day during the week, and not just by me. My name is on a bright orange sticker on its front.

I came in today to find a "Parking Ticket" on the item. On the parking ticket form, it says "I have made a good faith effort to contact the owner, if known, about their unsafely or improperly stored property."

This raises two questions:
    - What's a reasonable "good faith effort"? I would think the fact that my name is posted on an item, and that I'm well-known enough in the community here would be enough to trigger at least an email, forum PM, or general shout-out. Do we have any way to make this easier?
    - What's a reasonable definition of "improperly stored"? I personally thought that supplying a monitor and keyboard for people who dock their devices -- just ask me first if it's ok, partly so I can warn you about the quirks of the monitor -- was a good use of the space.


I'm a little nervous that a tool that's clearly labelled, and which I and others use on a regular basis, will be "considered abandoned and disposed of".

I don't care if someone needs to move it off to the side or something to clear the table, and in fact people have done so before without any annoyance from me, so it's not like I have some large thing that's preventing others from doing work.

Thoughts? In the meanwhile, I'm leaving the monitor up where it is -- if it's in your way, please move it aside. If it's not obvious where it's moved, leave a note or drop me an e-mail or something.

I can only suggest that you contact the person who left the parking ticket, and discuss.
