This is kinda the best place to post this, it should get it's own thread as it's not about connecting to #fc etc. like this
is. Over the past while (not sure how long), a lot of the op system has broken down, ops hold grudes against users, theres a bit of abuse on the side, and some people are really unhappy. This is a proposal to relive the tension.
I'm proposing that we dissolve the members of the access list, to start with, so everyone (bar Marc and Slimmy, as founders) is on a level field. Then I propose that we take nominations for ops and halfops again. Have it so every person may nominate 3 people, allocting the first preference 3 points, the second 2 points, and the 3rd person with 1 point. To be eligible I'm suggesting that each candidate must be nominated by 4 others in 1st preference. You cannot nominate yourself, or vote for yourself. Then you tally up the votes, and try and establish an amount of ops and halfops from there. If the vote was to occur, you would need to ensure that you are voting in someone in 1st place from your timezone (when you're on) so that each portion of the day has some op coverage.
Hopefully then a group of ops may be established that everyone can be happy with, and there isn't as many complaints
I'm suggesting it as an idea initally, open to adjustment (particularly on the number side) so I'm not putting in my vote unless others like this idea of dissolving the ops. Also, I'm not claiming authority, it's a suggestion in the suggestion box.
