And I think it’ll work out well

2018-07-30 04:41:46 UTC  

that's why I stated I was fine with a ballot

2018-07-30 04:42:02 UTC  

because that was the question at hand no?

2018-07-30 04:42:14 UTC  

What I want is the Speaker to open the floor up to the general

2018-07-30 04:42:18 UTC  


2018-07-30 04:42:26 UTC  

The people introduce their ideas

2018-07-30 04:42:33 UTC  

We close it after 24 hours

2018-07-30 04:42:53 UTC  

Then we pass a law allowing for a referendum to change the south’s name with a ranked choice election

2018-07-30 04:43:09 UTC  

The name that achieves 50.1% will be the new name

2018-07-30 04:43:16 UTC  

I think the three options are the majority options that have come up, Jefferson, the IDS and the South.

2018-07-30 04:43:24 UTC  

Well yeah

2018-07-30 04:43:27 UTC  

it seems to me that most people favor one of the three.

2018-07-30 04:43:43 UTC  

But it’s not democracy if we limit people’s choices now is it

2018-07-30 04:43:45 UTC  

I see no reason why a referendum between those three would be an issue

2018-07-30 04:44:07 UTC  

Which is why I want to open the floor up for public debate

2018-07-30 04:44:17 UTC  

To the general public I mean

2018-07-30 04:44:19 UTC  

we already have that in the thread that's been put up

2018-07-30 04:44:33 UTC  

there's a pretty good discussion in the thread, IMO

2018-07-30 04:44:50 UTC  

But it’s for members lol, what I’m proposing would be official

2018-07-30 04:45:10 UTC  

This way we have a clear cut way of doing things that has a specific timeline

2018-07-30 04:45:20 UTC  

And I hope Tim will agree with me on this

2018-07-30 04:45:48 UTC  

I see no need to reinvent the wheel when there's already a pretty good thread for public consultation on this issue

2018-07-30 04:46:05 UTC  

I think we can go ahead with the referendum between the three.

2018-07-30 04:46:25 UTC  

I’ll be voting no if you propose that, I think a clear time table is needed

2018-07-30 04:46:32 UTC  

on what grounds?

2018-07-30 04:47:04 UTC  

On the grounds the people should be specifically allowed to introduce their own ideas in a thread

2018-07-30 04:47:20 UTC  

there's already a thread for that

2018-07-30 04:47:43 UTC  

the people have spoken and I think it's pretty clear what their preferences are.

2018-07-30 04:47:51 UTC  

Not all of the people have spoken

2018-07-30 04:48:03 UTC  

you're never going to get all the people, YT

2018-07-30 04:48:25 UTC  

since we're in agreement with the three top choices, I don't see why we can't start up a referendum.

2018-07-30 04:48:32 UTC  

I know, but at what we have we’ve hardly had much input on the floor

2018-07-30 04:48:38 UTC  

I think we need more options

2018-07-30 04:48:53 UTC  

I’ve heard different names being thrown around

2018-07-30 04:49:32 UTC  

I think the top three are pretty clear and I don't think that will change.

2018-07-30 04:49:53 UTC  

Anyways I’ll reach out to Speaker-designate TimTurner about it

2018-07-30 04:50:13 UTC  

part of crafting a good referendum is to have clear choices, but also limited ones

2018-07-30 04:50:31 UTC  

I think that three is a reasonable ballot and I don't think we'll face criticism if we do it this way

2018-07-30 04:50:50 UTC  

Well actually as I’m thinking of it currently

2018-07-30 04:51:09 UTC  

If we introduced too much it would be tons of math for Peebs to do and calculate

2018-07-30 04:51:17 UTC  

That could take way longer than it needs to
