    Default VOTING: Section XII: Amendment Procedure

    The following is up for vote as a provision in the constitution. For further notes on the voting procedure and any questions about it, please see the sticky thread in this forum.

    The vote closes at 11:59 PM Eastern, Friday night, February 6.

    The vote is divided into two sections. Please submit your vote in the following format

    Sections A/D: Yes/No
    Sections B/C: Option 1/Option 2

    Also, though you all officially recognized vultures are technically allowed to vote, I do ask that we limit this to one vote per franchise.

    ----------------------------------------------



    XII. Amendment Procedure

    A. Suggested amendments may be posted at any time. After a sufficient showing of support and time for discussion, the Board of Governors will post the amendment for vote. An amendment may be forced to vote at any time by the public posts of 16 majority owners.

    D. Voting for all majority owners on amendments is mandatory. The Board of Governors may punish repeated violations of this policy in its discretion, but should consider extinuating circumstances if they present.


    OPTION 1

    B. All majority owners and official minority owners shall be eligible to vote.

    C. An amendment shall be deemed to have passed if it receives a number of "YES" votes equal to two-thirds (rounded up) of the voting bloc. The voting bloc is defined as all majority owners plus the number of official minority owners that cast their vote.

    OPTION 2

    B. All majority owners are eligible to vote. A majority owner may delegate his vote to an official minority owner by notifying the Board of Governors.

    C. An amendment shall be deemed to have passed if it receives 22 "YES" votes.

    yes although I think the phrase "if they present" is awkward and unnecessary. The provision reads just fine without it.

    also part A has typos.

    option 2

    The whole world is a circus if you look at it the right way. Every time you pick up a handful of dust, and see not the dust, but a mystery, a marvel, there in your hand, every time you stop and think, "I'm alive, and being alive is fantastic!" Every time such a thing happens, you are part of the Circus of Dr. Lao.
