That is fair enough, I absolutely accept your position. Now shall we bring the proposal to a vote? I mean, let's finish the thread by tabling a motion for the board to vote on. I am not sure if my wording is good enough, I would prefer if someone could help out.
Yes, I would certainly like to know who voted what afterwards. :-)
Answering your question with a question - why should this be something the Board decide on? should we instead consider this as a Membership vote?
instead of volumous almost answers, do it and stop talking about it. bring the matter to a vote. and probably the vote should be by the Membership as it will define actions expected from those who that same Membership ultimately elects.
asking for a close of debate and:
I hereby move for a vote by the Membership to mandate a public record of the comitteemenbers vote for, against or abstention of, for $SUBJECT, to be included in the minutes. a reason for the particular vote would be welcome but not mandatory. note that private matters as those of a particularly personal matter or of non-disclosure type would be considered outside this direction.
call for seconds
I second the motion.
Per, shouldn't voting happen in controlled environment, like our Helios voting system? And be documented instead of in this thread?
Yes, it most certainly does not belong in this thread, agree. The topic has to be brought to a wider audience.
I'd like to be sure the number of pro and contra votes are 100% correct and reliable, with a clear start and beginning of the voting time, and not depend on posts in a thread like this.
I find it is a somewhat minor change and as such I would be happy to leave it to the Board to decide - provided I know who voted what. If the Board would want to vote in the usual secret, I would ask for a community referendum.
