Hiatus Notice

Admins, keep in mind that proposals are not open for voting during Hiatus.  Therefore, proposals “That went down well” through “Pick Your Own Honorary Title, Non-Self-Killed Edition” will not time out until 24 hours after the sidebar says they time out.

I think this specific point should be changed, because you see, it just makes the adminning process more dificult and adds no value to the game. Let all actions stop during hiatus except voting (in egeneral) and resolving CfJs.

Disagree.  Often the voting choices are a function of the DoV’s status. 

Remember that not all proposals have to be voided after a DoV passes.

I agree with arth. Let the proposal time-out be delayed, but voting itself should be legal during hiatus.

Now that the DoV has been failed early with a CfJ, these proposals will time out twelve hours and twenty-seven minutes later than usual.

Josh seems to have missed this and timed out several proposals a few hours early.

Let’s solve the problem just by voting actively so we don’t need to time out proposals at all.

The problem which I am addressing still remains: It makes it difficult to admin proposals that have votes made during hiatus.

Yes, sorry - I did miss a few.

[Arthexis] Good point. Freezing everything is useful for focusing players’ attention on getting the DoV sorted out, but it would make processing easier if votes weren’t locked. Go ahead and propose it.

I don’t see anything in Rules 1.9 or 1.5 that says that proposals time out later. Just that you can’t vote on them until Hiatus ends. Where does it say that?

“It has been open for voting for at least 48 hours…”

Ah. Never mind. Will propose fix, though.
