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!

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

Nilly had volunteered to count the votes upthread a bit.

Why isn't everyone pelting me with JOY, dammit? - Zenkitty

Love it, Jess!

The status is NOT quo.

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.

Yeah, I joined in 2004. ONLY 14 YEARS. Noob. Or wait. 2003? I have to check Allyson's book. (My first night on the board is immortalized in the book, so I feel I should get some credit for that, at least.)

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Nilly had volunteered to count the votes upthread a bit.

Oh! If we want to maintain tradition, Nilly can do it. (NILLY!!)

Otherwise, my profile address is fine.

I probably won't get the vote page up until late this evening. If Nilly doesn't chime in by then, I'll send the votes to you, Jesse.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

Late chiming in, but ftr I agree and I like the final revision of the wording.

I'm pretty sure I joined in 2003. No, I joined earlier and lurked, and finally started to interact with the scary smart peoples in 2003.

edit for better accuracy

not to be confused with java cat

It me. I joined in 2005! 13 years later I still feel like a Newbie. I supposed that's because I'd already been posting on various boards and chat rooms for over 13 years when I finally joined up with y'all.

The Press announcement is up:

Voting Has Begun!

And with that, I close this thread.

I know my own heart and understand my fellow man. But I am made unlike anyone I have ever met. I dare to say I am like no one in the whole world. - Anne Lister

Proposal
A thread for education on, and discussion of, all of the -isms (racism, ableism, sexism, homophobia, etc.) with the goal of being intentional about supporting all of our members and being good citizens in the world at large. This would be a place to ask questions, share educational links, and have difficult discussions (as needed).

I think it's a great idea, Glam. I, personally, have learned a lot of things I didn't know that I didn't know from buffistas (and others, but...) just on FB - sharing articles, videos, following wall convos, etc - and having a thread here as a resource and place to talk would be amazing. I think this is a great idea independent of what happened in the GGR thread. And, I mean, I wouldn't want anyone to feel burdened to educate, and I take responsibility for educating myself (or for having failed to do so, probably more often than not), but I would welcome this thread here.
