Talk:Voting Abdication

From Pumping Station: One Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

It might be worth changing "I agree to support the outcome of the vote, and not to change my vote after the fact." to "I acknowledge that I understand that votes cannot be changed once cast on my behalf."

Also, I propose adding the following: "You may rescind vote abdication by removing your name from the list. Additions or removals take effect at the scheduled start time of the first Member Meeting that occurs subsequent to each respective edit."

However, changing text now may not be valid since there are already a few entries that have signed under the existing terms, and I'm fine with the terms as they are. --Localhost (talk) 13:31, 13 December 2013 (CST)

Candidate for deletion

+1 to delete this page. I suspect that removing it may be contentious, so I would like to hear opinions hear before doing so. --Hef (talk) 08:52, 19 February 2014 (CST)


I'm cool with this page/ method of proxy voting going away. I would like our members to be involved. But it seems that the ILCS sited requires that we allow full members to assign their proxy for up to 11 months with a single email. This will require tracking of members eligibility to vote. I reject the argument that using this page in the way that is intended is unmanageable, extra effort but not unmanageable. Mskilton

Not on wiki

If members are interested in assigning proxies, removing their ability to vote or anything else, they should send that information to vote@. I will do what I can to keep track of this, but a wiki page that's updated (and falls out of date) with no fanfare is not going to work. --Dbever (talk) 11:50, 19 February 2014 (CST)

I support not on the wiki. An easy argument can be made that adding your name to a wiki page does not meet the test of notifying the board or appropriate member of the board, in writing, of ones intent to assign their vote by proxy. Mskilton

Are you volunteering?

Are you (Michael) volunteering to keep this page accurate and up to date? --Hef (talk) 12:07, 19 February 2014 (CST)


Yep, just give me access to an accurate and up to date list of members eligible to vote and I will make this page accurate and up to date on the day of a vote. Mskilton

Members Site contains the most accurate and up to date list of member's available. --Hef (talk) 12:03, 22 February 2014 (CST)

Still impossible to sustain

Unless you're also willing to identify every member voting in person at a meeting, this is still one more needless avenue for vote duplication. I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

If a member wants to proxy their vote, they need to contact the vote (at) email address and I will track it. --Dbever (talk) 16:08, 22 February 2014 (CST)
