It seems to me that many of the threads running in this section are around the taking of decisions. Should we ban [i:b493ac5809]xyz[/i:b493ac5809], What is our policy on [i:b493ac5809]abc[/i:b493ac5809] and so on. What isn't clear to me is when the issue is decided. As an example - the way we go about banning people. Everyone seems to be in agreemet (community decision or vote), so what next? Likewise discussions on particular members (ban or warn?) good points of view on either side, but as yet no decision. Now I'm not suggesting we rush that process of course. Healthy debate is good and naturally fosters community spirit. However there comes a point where views are fairly entrenched one way or the other (or indeed everyone is just saying "I agree"). Further contributions are probably doing more harm than good to community spirit once this point has been reached. Is it possible to set a cut off date for community regulation matters? Vote by such and such a date? So if someone is up for banning or whatever, then there is a set time for the voting to take place. Perhaps there could be a "clerk of the temple" who looks after this and provides a summary when the decision time is reached. The discussions around the decision could then be locked and archived in a "Temple Records" area for reference This would also help our esteemed admin to know when to activate the decision of the Temple.
