general scribe guidelines
Do's and Don'ts taken from [[http://www.businesswritingblog.com/business_writing/2006/01/tips_for_writin.html | here ]].
Don't describe all the "he said, she said" details unless those details are very important. Record topics discussed, decisions made, and action items.
Don't include any information that will embarrass anyone (for example, "Then Terry left the room in tears").
Do use positive language. Rather than describing the discussion as heated or angry, use passionate, lively, or energetic--all of which are just as true as the negative words.
from this link http://www.meetingwizard.org/meetings/meeting-minutes-format.cfm we have:
Don't make the mistake of recording every single comment, but concentrate on getting the gist of the discussion and taking enough notes to summarize it later. Remember that minutes are the official record of what happened, not what was said, at a meeting.
