This is a proposal, where you can make a decision together. You can start a proposal once a discussion is underway.

Everyone is asked to state a position by the deadline. You can extend the deadline if you need to, or close a proposal early.

You can change your position while the proposal is open. You might reconsider your view as you listen to others.

Sometimes groups work through a series of proposals to build solutions together. You can raise sequential proposals in this thread.

Don't I sit and stare at this machine enough?

ha! touche...

maybe it won't take, but some decisions simply need faster turnaround than sporadic delegate meeting turnout, and others (in particular liz, robb, and myself) have suggested we try something like this for those kinda proposals.

so perhaps we could try this out for the kinda decisions that can be made more quickly with a digital tool?
