Okay, to clear a few things up:
* Our current shelves are full, with people (including myself) now using 
the floor as a "shelf"
* Many people are using up too much shelving space
* We have no more room for more shelves
* donating for the lockers is voluntary by individuals - the lockers add 
value to noisebridge and don't cost anything out of our bank account
* the lockers have the big air holes, so even then you get a choice of 
having people look in your locker or not - just cover up the air holes 
from the inside.
* The lockers are the same height (12") and depth (also 12") as our 
shelves.  The shelves are just one long space, with many people taking 
up an entire shelf whether they need it or not.

If we get lockers, we'll still have the shelves!  Which means people can 
continue to use the shelves by choice!  Also, if we don't need as many 
shelves, then we can repurpose some shelves for other uses, like more 
hackshelves, in the machine shop, or in the electronics lab.

And hey, Rubin, as for privacy in the shitters, i heard a rumor...
