In fact, the proposal passed the wiki vote ONLY because the three people voted no at the
last minute.  If it were not for those 'no' votes, the proposal would have failed.

All that shows in part how dysfunctional the wiki vote system is.

Here here!
It also show how dysfunctional this group is .. not many of you vote!


I would suggest
1) Continued membership of this group be conditional on voting on at least half the tags presented for voting over say the last year.
2) Rejoining members be conditional on voting on at least 8 of the next 10 tags presented for voting.
3) Tag voting may only cease when at least 25%? of the tag group members have voted and 3? weeks have elapsed.

----------------
The old saying .. vote early, vote often springs to mind. Be carefull of the options in No 3 .. if you make the time short and the voting numbers small people may not be able to meet the conditions of No 1 or No2 !!!!


Yes .. it makes the admin more complex. But it will get some to say something, and get others off the group. Flame away.
