Rule Proposal 8: Amendment extensions (FAILED)

Post  pyrodwarf on Sat Nov 08, 2008 1:31 am

"If a rule proposal would be amended, the said proposal's voting window shall be reset to 72 hours on the defeat or approval of the amendment."

I think this prevents some shenanigans and also ensures we don't rush an amendment just to meet deadlines.

I don't like this. If we spot problems, we can just fix it after the rule has passed.

Vote: No

This would simply cause people with "doomed" proposals near the deadline to change them entirely, give them new names, and avoid the point deduction. To put it in more concrete terms, I could keep resubmitting the same proposal number with different rules until I picked something the community liked.

That type of behavior would get annoying; anyway, there's no reason not to think your proposals through before submitting them.
