Firstly, I would like to state that I have no qualms if a moderator decides to delete my other thread: Proposal: "Automatic Approval of Certain Proposals", since this is essentially the same thread with a private poll. My proposal is as follows. If certain proposals meet, or exceed the 100 vote limit within a period of 30 days, they should be automatically implemented, since it is quite a feat to gain such a large amount of member support for a poll of any sort. The addition of a time limit serves to show that, if a proposal gains such a great deal of support in such a short amount of time, then the active posting body truly wishes for such changes to be made. The proposals would be non-financial in nature (e.g. no "Free subscriptions for everyone?" proposals), and limited to the subject of membership. List of proposals that should be automatically approved: -Removal of bans of any sort -Temporary bans, specifically those of two weeks or less in duration Examples of proposals that should not fall under this category: -"Free Subscription" proposals -Other such proposals that fall outside the bounds of reason Please vote yes, for by doing so, you show your support for the idea that, if given the ability to do so, posters will work together to help make Sciforums a better place for everyone. Remember, this poll closes on February 22, 2004. EDIT: I have reposted EI Spark's response below, since the other thread is most likely going to be deleted. Unless the poll is public, there is currently none. If the poll is public, then one could easily figure out what is going on by simply examining the names. Thus, this difficulty could be remedied by requring all "Automatic Proposals" to have public polls, but in my opinion, until a a judgment is reached on whether "Automatic Proposals" will even be permitted, it is to early to make these sort of decisions.
