Proposal: Threepartmental Fun

Timed out and enacted, 4-1. Josh

Adminned at 27 Jan 2022 15:52:13 UTC

Reword the paragraph in the rule “Departments” which begins “A proposal is a Promotion Proposal if…” as follows:

A proposal is a Promotion Proposal if and only if it is Titled “Requesting Promotions” and the text of the proposal is “Requesting Promotions for XXX” where XXX is a list of the names of one or more employees, which may not include the CEO. When a Promotion Proposal is Enacted, the Hierarchal rank of each Employee included in its list is increased by 1. A proposal is a Demotion Proposal if and only if it is Titled “Requesting Demotions” and the text of the proposal is “Requesting Demotions for XXX” where XXX is a list of the names of one or more employees, which may not include the CEO. When a Demotion Proposal is Enacted, the Hierarchal rank of each Employee included in its list is decreased by 1, to a minimum of 0.

If an Employee does not share a Department with any Employee whose name is mentioned in a given Promotion Proposal or a Demotion Proposal, then their vote on that Proposal is invalid. For the purpose of calculating the quorum for a Promotion Proposal or a Demotion Proposal, only the Employees whose votes would be valid are considered to be Employees.

Poor management or productivity should possibly have consequences.

I’m just picturing a group of interns overthrowing a CEO- wait could you demote Zach with this?

Hah, good catch. Updated so that we can’t promote him anymore either.

Who is Zach?

Wouldn’t it be wise to start using a non-proposal type of votable matter for this kind of thing? So the game isn’t dragged out by people not being able to make proposals.

Too late to change that! Not entirely against moving to an event or something, but proposals with a very low quorum are unlikely to back up the queue too long.
