charter rewrite: period of 12 or 24 months?

Post by thorondor » Thu Mar 24, 2011 8:26 pm

lets decide if the period of a COE session is 12 or 24 months.
the poll runs 5 days, so there is still time to discuss a little bit.

I voted for 12 month. As pointed out already in another thread I see a potential problem with members who might become inactive or leave the council during the given period for whatever reason. Shall them be replaced and if so, how? I don't see a good way to deal with this. So let's better keep it to 12 months.
In the event that a member is not able to bring his term to completion, a new member shall be appointed based on the results of the election; if such is unfeasible, a special election shall be held among the non-voting CoE members.
Well this could be a solution. I don't think it's a good solution, though. There are so many things that can happen during 24 month.

of course we still have to deal with the same problem, when a COE gets lost in a 12 months period.

I vote 24, with a caveat that inactive members can be replaced by the council (NOT by a new vote to the community).

The community is not going to vote every year on Council members, at least not with a noticeable turnout.

It's easy to get a replacement system in. 24 Months.
Remember, NetRep rulings are official. This does not necessarily mean they are correct.

You probably aren't playing Fallen Wizards correctly.
