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.

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.
I agree with jesse. I only included a year because it was the original idea proposed at WX.
Three months, six months, or a year? Discuss....
Me? I can't say for sure yet. A year seems too long for me, but I can't tell if three or six months would be better.
I can see the benefit in making things go away for six, considering sometimes dicussion can be heated, but six months is a lot of virtual time. Heck, six months is a lot of time IRL.
Well, there's my waffling contentlessness.
