Proposal: Quorum Drano

Self-Killed. Admined by Chronos Phaenon.

Adminned at 22 Oct 2011 17:05:03 UTC

Immediately idle each Artist who both:
  1) did not vote on this Proposal, and
  2) became a non-Idle Artist later than UTC 23:00 19 October 2011.

Both sides’ invasion forces are likely to clog quorum, and a nonpartisan fix should pass more easily. Pre-invasion Artists are grandfathered in; all others must respond to ping.

against  as a proposal could theoretically pass before people have a chance to view it.

Though I conced that my Proposal is not the better way around, forcing a player to vote on a Proposal is not the way, either.

Also, desticky this, people should actually have to read the blog rather than notice it in the mess.

coppro: Seconded.

ais523: Is that a thing that I do, or an admin thing? If the former, how do I go about destickying?

scshunt:

It’s not sticky.

ais523:

Either the post’s author or an admin can sticky or desticky it. If you click the “edit” link, one of the tabs should have settings that allow you to make changes to posts. Most of them are illegal to use once the post has been posted, but (by game custom, at least), sticky/desticky is allowed.

It’s been mentioned that possibly this post isn’t actually stickied, and is instead at the top of the page due to an EE bug, in which case it’ll move down with time, though.

ChronosPhaenon:

10-21-2011 16:19:56 UTC

It’s not currently sticky, as I tried to edit and desticky it.

Pavitra:

Technically, we do have a Critic, but they’re idle and won’t be voting. Therefore, DEFERENTIAL votes count not as explicit abstentions, but as non-votes.

against just in case this somehow idles everyone. You’ll forgive me if it’s takes a little while to trust any new players who arrived here as part of the Agora invasion.

“counts as an explicit Vote of abstention, and has no effect” might mean that DEF votes get idled by this rule, incidentally.
