PostSubject: A council reformation proposal   Wed 21 Dec 2011, 12:01 am

First topic message reminder :

Over the last couple terms I have seen the same traits in the council. Lately we have had dwindling inactivity, and those who are active now (With the exception of Vader and a couple others), already hold administrative positions. The commoner seats always become vacant in one way or another, and I can't remember the last time where one of our leading council members was a commoner.

I think considering our situation of inevitable inactivity (comparing to earlier years), we need to make a smaller council, so it is more likely we will acheive active discussions and ball pushing in the clan. I propose that from the start of next term we have 5 council members, and not seven. One seat is open to a commoner and the remaining four seats are open to any administrative/moderator. I think despite our ideology of group representation the only group needing a good represenatation has been the people without the power, commoners, and over the last terms the dictate of having to choose two commoners results in their inactivity from council discussions.

I think a 5 man council (with a majority still being four or three approvals?), will mean more compact debates with a high likelyhood of a strong working team. Maintaining a seven man council when there simply aren't enough good and active candidates to take the seats will be fruitless, and will end up with me (or Xaso) just pushing all balls of discussion, which I feel I did this term, and what I don't want.

What do you guys think?

maybe we should split this in 2 polls. if the ppl think that 3 man in the council is too much of a triumvirate (a fear which even exists in a five man council... they still can build the majority to rule the other 2), then they shall choose a five man council. BUT i dont think it would be good that the 3 man council wins, just because the 5 man council voters are split into 3month terms and 6 month terms.

Sounds good Smile So the poll will be between these:

Three man council - One commoner, One server admin, One forum admin. Six month term with unanimity decision rule, if one councillor disagrees it is denied or taken to the other members.

Five man council - One commoner, One server admin, One forum admin, Two members from any background. Six month term with ability to re-elect should the need arise.

Or with all these 3:

Fine. Nick's "we'd have a month of elections followed by two months without" argument sounds believable, it'd be much too busy.
