This forum is here to allow members to take a more active role in the administration of this site. All members can make proposals that, if sufficiently supported, will be enacted. Proposals can be made as regards the creation/deletion/modification of forums, appointment/removal of moderators, and the banning/punishment of users. Proposals cannot be made to reinstante previously banned users. Procedure: - Create a thread in this forum explaining the proposal. - Ensure that this thread has a poll such that the proposal can be voted on. - If possible, phrase the poll so it can be answered with either "Yes"/"No" or "Agree"/"Disagree". - Set the time frame of the poll long enough such that quorum (minimum number of votes) can be met. (suggested time period: 1 week) Rules: - All members in good standing with at least 10 posts are eligible to vote. All votes are weighted equally. - The administrator (myself) holds veto power over all proposals. - Quorum: A minimum of 50 votes must be cast in all proposals. - Consensus: A simple majority is required for all proposals. - Any attempt to circumvent the rules (eg. by opening multiple accounts) will result in all votes by the user being invalidated and the user will be considered for banning. If you feel uncomfortable posting a proposal under your own name, let me know privately and I will post it anonymously for you. Proposals dealing with the banning of users should be done this way, to avoid dragging the personality of the proposer into the issue. Preferably, polls for proposals should be made NOT public (the poster must set this option when they create the poll). Anonymity will compel more people to vote and will compel them to vote more honestly.
