Proposal: Deferentially Maybe

Times out and passes 8-0. -Bucky

In the rule “Special Proposal Voting”, replace “an explicit vote AGAINST their own Proposal” with:-

a vote AGAINST their own Proposal (which is not in the form of a DEFERENTIAL vote)

This just came up in voting on a recent proposal: we may as well clarify what we mean by “explicit” here.

(Looking at the rule again, we actually say in the same rule that a DEF is “considered to be valid and the same as the Coach’s Vote for the purposes of other rules”, so a DEF can never become a self-kill.)

Rule 1.2.1 politely asks that admins announce when they idle themselves. I am idling myself.

It ought to be illegal to make that sort of announcement when not idling yourself.
