Recomendations to the PNC - Threshold

N Nick Public Seen by 11

What, if any, should be the required amount of votes to recommend a policy, or other, proposal to the PNC and State Parties.


Alex M (Coyo) Tue 23 Apr 2013 9:57PM

to know that, we need to determine how many pirates we have, and then decide a quorum.


Amanda Johnson Tue 23 Apr 2013 9:58PM

That is a good question. Do you think a lack of 'nay' is too high a thresh hold?


Nick Tue 23 Apr 2013 10:02PM

Yeah... too high. Anyways, a person disagreeing is always free to attend a PNC or state meeting to represent their opinions.

Well, the proposals are right there. There's always a clear record of who agrees, who disagrees, etc. So! How about we just publish the results for anyone (whether state party, PNC, disgruntled fork of PNC, etc.) to take into consideration? "Dear world: 75% of us recommend this policy. Take that for what you will. Love, Pirate Underground."


Nick Wed 24 Apr 2013 2:21AM

Well, The original intent on the Pirate Underground was to provide recommendations to the PNC (and otherwise lobby the PNC on policy that the Underground approves of)..
Though just giving them the numbers might work. Though its transparent anyways, so the PNC can look at it whether we send it or not.

I agree with Zac. It is practical and fluid.


Nick Wed 24 Apr 2013 2:55AM

I guess that could work.. I still think we should be recommending something though.

blocked by zach, inconsistent with pirate principles.

Should we require a quorum of all registered pirate party members to vote yay or nay for important policies such as our platform or other party charter-level decisions?

Decisions that important should include all party members, and not be decided by state party leaders alone.

We should obviously have a Quorum to Ratify.
