'Get It Done'

Voting Discussion: We're Screwing In Light Bulbs AIFG!  

We open it up, we talks the talk, we votes, we shuts it down. This thread is to free up Bureaucracy for daily details as we hammer out the Big Issues towards a vote. Open only when a proposal has been made and seconded according to Buffista policy (Which we voted on!). If this thread is closed, hie thee to Bureaucracy instead!

All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story. Tell me a story.

I made the mistake of hitting "Recent" and reading the last Lightbulbs case we opened - I think we deserve a nice easy one, you know?

And of course this got me to go back and read the last one. As fraught as that felt, we handled it pretty well. More introspection, less contention.

I would still support DX doing this though:

Of course that doesn't mean I don't feel the urge to change my tagline to "I told you so!" :)

When they made this particular hero, they didn't give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn't give him a tank or a warship or an X-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn't give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray. They gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that's an extraordinary thing. There will never come a time that we don't need a hero like the Doctor.

Fake news!

Like cilantro, facts have evolved.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

"More than" twenty years! Unless you mean "over the span of twenty years."

Yeah, it shouldn't say "twenty years ago" since that will be wrong next year. How about ..."brought together in 1998 (or whatever year the TT thread started) by our shared love..."

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

"begun during the original airing of Buffy the Vampire Slayer"?

The more I look at "brought together" the more I think about newbies. By which I mean people who have only been here 15 years.

Now with added Sheffield steel.

Okay, final wording since we have reached the three-day limit on conversation and need to get to voting.

Proposal: Update the "About Us" section and registration page to better represent who we are today, a close-knit community of friends, to set appropriate expectations for new members who may come to us seeking pure fandom.
