First topic message reminder :
Ok guys, as far as im aware for any new applicant going for recruitment, in order to pass his poll, all he has to do is receive a majority vote, yes?
Mmm i'm wondering whether we should up the stakes on this. When new applicants come, people often vote yes on their poll, simply because they dont know the applicant in person. Others vote no, which isnt fair on the appicant. (in my opinion if a person does not know the applicant they should not vote at all)
However as far as im aware in order for anybody to pass a poll they must reach a 51% pass rate, my proposal is that we raise the bar on this issue to say 75%. This could apply to recruit to members too!
One of the reasons i am saying this is because on my poll i recieved 100% (as many others have) of the vote, however others sometimes pass their poll with people voting against them.
As far as im concerned, even if one person votes against you, this is a serious cause for concern but unfortunatly, their reasons get undermined.
Often people have a good reason for voting no, but are undermined by other people who vote yes, simply because they dont know the guy so well, or havent been active when the applicant has, or have missed an incident regarding the applicant.
Often that one or two people voting no have cast iron reasons for voting this way, but are undermined because people less in know vote yes!
(i would like to make a example of nick not voting for waffle, apparently waffle was kicked from ATS for good reasons, but we vote yes to let him back in because we dont know the full story. Nick is undermined).
So my proposal is that we set a pass rate at 75% for all polls! What u guys think?
(omg is their is already a pass rate enforced that i dont know about in gonna be soooo embarressed,
