For Voting and accepting proposals, Hive76 uses the system below:

  1. We vote at Wednesday Meetings on the 1st and 3rd of the month (7:00PM sharp).
  2. To submit something to vote on, a member has to:
    1. write up a proposal, and post it to the Pending Proposals section of the wiki.
    2. They must also post the proposal to the mailing list, with the subject line starting with PROPOSAL:.
    3. NOTE: the proposal might be modified during the voting meeting by those in attendance, as long as it sticks to the core idea/plan.
  3. Proposals are brought up in order at the meeting. Proposals may be modified in reasonable and minor ways during discussion.
  4. Proposals are passed by 2/3 Majority of people attending the meeting, in their final form.
  5. Members can select someone to vote for them by proxy at the meeting, if they can't attend themselves.

Proposals that are not on the wiki,and/or were not announced won't' be voted on. (temp note: adopted 2010.02.10 by voting at 'irc-because-of-storm' meeting) (temp note: Previous quorum was 2/3. A new quorum count wasn't part of the new process).
