"I don't know anyone! It's difficult to start casting votes. How about you choose the first council by your knowledge and intuition and then next time the council itself can sort out all line-up changes?"
OK, I understand, we could simplify it for the first Council elections. But we _NEED_ some sort of participation of the community here. So, let's do it an ever simplier way.
I have prepared a list of people I nominate for the Council (based on my past experience with those people, their post here and on the old forums or simply by intuition). This Council will operate for a half year only (the remaining of 2015 and 1st half of 2016) and after that the community elects a new Council (which would operate longer, like 3 years, we will forge the details on it later).
My nomination for the Council (5 people): vic-k, LotBlind, martiniturbide, broklynite, FlyM0lo
This Council will operate in a shorter, half year, term (so it's sort of a provisional Council).
You, the member of a community, are to simply reply here and post:
- APPROVE (if you approve the Council selection above)
- DISAPPROVE (if you do not approve the Council selection above)
- COUNTERPROPOSAL (if you have a better idea, include the list of people you want in the Council (5-8))
- APPROVE COUNTERPROPOSAL [mention which counterproposal] (if you support the proposal someone made)
If at least 70% of the community approves we go for it, if there are more proposals the one with majority of approvals passes.
So, it can't be simlpier :) Just reply if you approve it or not (or post a counterproposal). I would really like if all/most of the active members replied.
