EDIT: If you vote, PLEASE respond with a vote as to your opinion!

Hey! A while back I made this thread, and I hope people have seen it. Please read through it if you have not done so: people made valid arguments, and I addressed them as best as I could, and I believe we covered most points. If there are any questions still, please ask them in this thread.

I understand this would be a definite change in how we do things, regardless of how stressed the "stay non-biased and non-demanding" policy is in this system. In order for this to work, though, we would need a very good amount of people to respect and listen to the council, whenever they intervene.

Council members are not defined yet, however there isn't any "appointing" members (maybe for the initial start, so people can see how it works. My intention is to keep it open), there is only people willing to be completely unbiased and unemotional.

This is a poll to determine whether the Community will let this go forward. Naturally, this wouldn't be the only poll, as polling would still be used in any community-wide effect.

If you vote for anything but the first option, please post and discuss why. Hopefully we can sort things out in a way that everyone is happy with.

I don't like this cause you go right back to the main problem of popularity contest.

Edit: I am to lazy to read.

There is no "voting" for Council members, nor is there a state of "authority." Council members do not have power, they simply mediate arguments in order to speed up the process.

The only authority in this system is the fact that if you refuse mediation in your argument, you're pretty much admitting that this argument isn't all that big of a deal to you. That's about it. Council Members do not instate rules or make decisions. They help the arguing parties make their decisions.

A popularity contest is currently going on as we speak, detached from council members, whether there's authority or not. If people don't like you, there's a reason they don't like you, and they will agree with others on arguments against you if they don't like you. If a group of people like you, they will agree with you on arguments against you.

That popularity contest is always going to be there, because you can't force people to not do that, unless you mediate an argument. The intention of the council is to remove emotion and popularity in an argument, and keep the argument on the problems that need to be focused on.

If you vote no, please bump and explain why, in case there are any misunderstandings as to what this Council would do.

Or downvote it and don't say a word, apparently.

If you vote on any of the three options, please explain why you believe so, so we can see why. Need to make sure any misunderstandings are cleared up.

I know, and thank you.

A little disappointed at others, that's all.
