'Time Bomb'

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!

Um. Who were the four people seconded this motion? I only saw two.

Wait, is this real-world child support, where the money goes to buy food for the kids, or MRA fantasyland child support where the women just buy Ferraris and cocaine? -Jessica

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.

How are you me? You need to stop that. Only I can be me. ~Kara

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.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

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.

Proposer Sophia Brooks
Seconds Anne, Sean K, brenda M. ,Deena , Jessica

OK, so this is just a minimum period of time, right? We wouldn't have to revisit anything, right? I'd say give it three and six months. A year is like forever in internet time.

Cats to become a rabbit should gather immediately now here

I agree with jesse. I only included a year because it was the original idea proposed at WX.
