Post Decisions within the forum  Reply with quote
Is anybody else vaguely familiar with Robert's Rules of Order? I was for some reason tempted to request motion for cloture and request a vote on the fish issue, and I was wondering if anybody else would know what the fuck I was talking about: tabling, motioning to vote, seconding, etc. If we know what it is or would be willing to use it, could we loosely implement it? Motioning to vote and then voting would get some of our issues decided upon quicker.

Actually now that I think about it this would work really well.  Maybe we could stream line it a bit though.

lol. We managed to use it in the Residence Hall Association (RHA) with little to no bureaucracy. So long as we use the system, and not the system us, there's nothing to fear and hindering ourselves with prejudice towards tools we create and use ourselves is akin to superstitious taboo. So long as we use it to expediate and organize ourselves and don't start bickering about rules, we're fine. I'd just like to be able to add several verb phrases to the vocabulary of our discussion.

The ones that I'm considering the most are motions to table, motions for cloture, and motions to vote. They're all very simple and useful things, again, so long as we don't go politician on ourselves.

Well, I'm gonna start using those terms.  If any one doesn't feel comfortable with lereveur and I sound legal just disregard it.

can you translate those legal terms to human terms first?

Motion to table: could we please put this off until we have the information necessary to make the decision properly?

Motion for cloture: this discussion is becoming pointless or repetitive, could we please vote on it and stop talking about it?

Motion to vote: if everybody is okay with it, and somebody will second this notion, could we vote on this since it seems everybody has made up their minds?



Glor, can you remember any others we might need?
