What I want is the Speaker to open the floor up to the general
The people introduce their ideas
We close it after 24 hours
Then we pass a law allowing for a referendum to change the south’s name with a ranked choice election
The name that achieves 50.1% will be the new name
I think the three options are the majority options that have come up, Jefferson, the IDS and the South.
it seems to me that most people favor one of the three.
But it’s not democracy if we limit people’s choices now is it
I see no reason why a referendum between those three would be an issue
Which is why I want to open the floor up for public debate
To the general public I mean
we already have that in the thread that's been put up
there's a pretty good discussion in the thread, IMO
But it’s for members lol, what I’m proposing would be official
This way we have a clear cut way of doing things that has a specific timeline
And I hope Tim will agree with me on this
I see no need to reinvent the wheel when there's already a pretty good thread for public consultation on this issue
I think we can go ahead with the referendum between the three.
I’ll be voting no if you propose that, I think a clear time table is needed
on what grounds?
On the grounds the people should be specifically allowed to introduce their own ideas in a thread
there's already a thread for that
the people have spoken and I think it's pretty clear what their preferences are.
Not all of the people have spoken
you're never going to get all the people, YT
since we're in agreement with the three top choices, I don't see why we can't start up a referendum.
I know, but at what we have we’ve hardly had much input on the floor
I think we need more options
I’ve heard different names being thrown around
I think the top three are pretty clear and I don't think that will change.
Anyways I’ll reach out to Speaker-designate TimTurner about it
part of crafting a good referendum is to have clear choices, but also limited ones
I think that three is a reasonable ballot and I don't think we'll face criticism if we do it this way
Well actually as I’m thinking of it currently
If we introduced too much it would be tons of math for Peebs to do and calculate
That could take way longer than it needs to
yep. that's also a consideration
YT, I've made promises to drop this with you
Ben I’m not doing it unless you apologize
