Sorry! I couldn't help myself - it was an instinctive act of sluttage. I have nothing to say about the voting, I was just being opportunistic. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry.
No, sod it. I'm The First. I'm Evil. Deal with it.

The subject under discussion is whether there should be a new vote on creating a war thread.
The discussion started in Bureaucracy here:

Um. Who were the four people seconded this motion? I only saw two.
I know this was something of a ramble but I'm getting the feeling that a small percentage of posters is getting the power to cut off a discussion because they are active posters.
I put forth the motion that only folks who made it over from Worldcrossing can make any decisions, vote on any topics, and swear, whenever the fuck they want.
Who shall second me?
There weren't yet. I don't think a discussion should be had in here until a motion has had four seconds, and only prior to a vote on the issue.
closed yes, for an as yet unspecified amount of time, but 6 months is the number that has been mentioned the most and was what I thought we were going to do before the voting method started. Also mentioned at the time and since then were 3 months and 1 year.
Okay I can't do this in two threads at once. I'm going back to Bureaucracy.
Just reposting Sophia's post:
Discussion: NOW - 3/24/03 11:59 pm EST
Voting: 3/25/03 12 am EST - 3/28/03 12:00 am EST
When we first started this whole voting thing, our ultimate goal was to be able to close discussions and not have them over and over and over and over....
After a proposal, discussion and vote, further discussion on this matter should be closed for:
3 months 6 months 1 year
In discussion, I would like to narrow this to 2 choices so we need not get into trying to decide how to vote.
