Motion 1 – Voting System


Motion 1 – Voting System

I propose we use a modified Apache-like system:

1. Anyone can put forward a motion
2. Motions must be seconded
3. Votes must last a minimum of 48 hours, cannot be proposed between
Friday 14:00PM GMT and Sunday 23:59 GMT
4. A motion must be discussed for at least 60 hours, those hours
between the time period listed in #3 are not counted.
5. Votes are: +1 for, 0 abstain or -1 oppose
6. Quorum is 40%
7. Formal abstentions are counted towards quorum
+8. A member is automatically given emeritus status after missing 4
votes in a row or all votes for 1 month whichever is longer.
9. Members may be reactivated on request so long as they are not
inactive for more than 12 months (counted from the end of the first
vote that they were inactive for)
10. After 12 months members must be re-activated via a yet to be
defined nomination process.
11. Motions are passed if they receive 50% of the votes.
