Proposal Date

Vote Announcement and Beginning Date of the Discussion Period

The announcement date of the vote proposal is the beginning date of the seven-day (minimum) posting and Member discussion period. (Certain exceptional vote types have longer discussion periods. Check the Bylaws if you are unsure.) If the Sponsor has chosen to include member input, suggested edits can be made in a shared document or other collaborative vehicle until the language is locked. The sponsor can stop taking suggestions at any time.


Language Lock Date and Start of Voting

Five days prior to the Day of the Vote, the vote language is locked, all edits are frozen, and the language of the vote is converted to a pdf file. Ballots that include the pdf are sent to the Membership, and electronic voting begins. Note that the minimum discussion period of seven days leaves only two days for changes before the lock takes place.


Day of the Vote

Date the Board has assigned for the vote. The Day of the Vote is the day the vote closes.



There are a truly ridiculous number of votes running on the 15th. Almost as many as have been run in the *Entire Year* up until this point. We'd like to take a moment and acknowledge that this is both irritating and wonderful. Long live PS:1 Do-ocracy.

Language of the Vote

The members of PS:1 vote to spend exactly 25 seconds in silent meditation on the 15th of November at 8:30 PM. Exactly 5 seconds for each of the 5 votes run during that meeting.
