  16. [14:40] (+Sourov0000) Thanks Pratyya
  17. [14:40] (@Pratyya) I understand but we need process. How'll it work?
  18. [14:41] (@Pratyya) Who'll be the candidates? guest6668
  19. [14:41] ** guest6668 is now known as Mdann52
  20. [14:41] (+Sourov0000) And who will vote?
  21. [14:41] (+Mdann52) Pratyya, anyone who wants to

  23. [14:41] (+Mdann52) Sourov0000, anyone
  24. [14:42] ** ChanServ sets mode(s) +o Mdann52
  25. [14:42] (@Pratyya) how'll the voting process run?
  26. [14:42] (@Pratyya) Mdann52:
  27. [14:42] (@Pratyya) do we need any questions like RFA?
  28. [14:42] (@Pratyya) or just voting?
  29. [14:42] (@Mdann52) Subpage, and for a week
  30. [14:43] (@Mdann52) Pratyya, maybe a discussion heading too....
  31. [14:43] (+Sourov0000) But on the present situation on the project, I hardly found anyone participate on any topic except two or three members.
  32. [14:44] (@Pratyya) yes I know, we have 4 active candidates who could be the candidates.
  33. [14:44] (@Pratyya) But when we are running votes we'll ask others to vote.
  34. [14:44] (@Pratyya) Mdann52: and Sourov0000
  35. [14:44] (@Mdann52) Yes - I'll send some edwardsbot spam out
  36. [14:45] (+Sourov0000) Well, that's a good idea. @Pratyya
  37. [14:45] (@Mdann52) Fyi, my battery will die any second.... :/
  38. [14:46] (@Mdann52) Anyway, onto articles....
  39. [14:48] (@Pratyya) now who'll be candidates?
  40. [14:48] (@Pratyya) Mdann52: do you want to be one?
  41. [14:48] (@Mdann52) Pratyya, ok
  42. [14:48] (@Pratyya) honestly I want to be one.
  43. [14:49] (+Sourov0000) Yes, about the articles. Before selecting candidate, it is necessary to clear the work of the nominated persons.
  44. [14:49] (@Pratyya) then Who;ll be candidates? Me, Sourov0000 and Mdann52 ?
  45. [14:49] (@Mdann52) Pratyya, I'll remain an adudicator if you want
  46. [14:49] (@Mdann52) Pratyya, let people nominate
  47. [14:49] (@Pratyya) how?!
  48. [14:49] (@Pratyya) Mdann52:
  49. [14:49] (@Mdann52) Theirself or others
  50. [14:49] (+Sourov0000) the candidates won't vote, other members will cast vote only
  51. [14:50] (@Pratyya) then everybody will nominate themselves as placeholders Mdann52 ;-)
  52. [14:50] (@Mdann52) Yes - the "don't vote for yourself" rule :P
  53. [14:50] (@Mdann52) Pratyya, doesn't matter
  54. [14:50] (@Pratyya) that's so true. Mdann52
  55. [14:51] (@Mdann52) If no-one votes, they get disqualified :)
  56. [14:51] (@Pratyya) mean?
  57. [14:51] (@Pratyya) Mdann52:
  58. [14:51] (@Mdann52) They can't get in if no-one votes for them
  59. [14:51] (+Sourov0000) What will happen if a member gets disqualified?
  60. [14:52] (@Mdann52) Sourov0000, I didn't mean that... :/
  61. [14:52] (@Mdann52) I meant don't get elected
  62. [14:52] (@Pratyya) then What's our work now Mdann52 ?
  63. [14:52] (+Sourov0000) Okay, candidate will get disqualified
  64. [14:52] (@Mdann52) Not disqualified....
  65. [14:53] (@Pratyya) yes, like Steward election he'll not be promoted as a placeholder.
  66. [14:53] (@Pratyya) ami Right? Mdann52
  67. [14:53] (+Sourov0000) Okay
  68. [14:54] (@Mdann52) yep
  69. [14:54] (@Pratyya) tha'll take a good amount of time Mdann52
  70. [14:54] (@Mdann52) On the subject of articles, a to-do list would be better
  71. [14:54] (@Mdann52) Pratyya, I'll sort it all out
  72. [14:55] (@Pratyya) Better we active members nominate candidates, then voting.
  73. [14:56] (@Mdann52) Yep
  74. [14:56] (@Pratyya) now what powers will the Co-ordinators and V.Co-ordinators have ? Mdann52 and Sourov0000
  75. [14:56] (+Sourov0000) Shall the post remain two: Vice Co-ordinator and Co-ordinator?
  76. [14:56] (@Mdann52) No - just 1 should be ok
  77. [14:56] (@Mdann52) They should maintain the to-do list
  78. [14:57] (@Mdann52) And nominate an "article for improvement"
  79. [14:58] (@Pratyya) hey Mdann52 only 1 post will increase the pressure that place holder. I think.
  80. [14:58] (@Pratyya) sorry if I type less prepositions.
  81. [14:58] (@Mdann52) Pratyya, Ok
  82. [14:58] (@Pratyya) My keyboard has problems.
  83. [14:58] (+Sourov0000) Yes, I agree with Pratyya on this
  84. [14:59] ** Kolega2357 has quit (Quit: Leaving)
  85. [14:59] ** Kolega2357 has joined #wikipedia-wikiproject-BPL
  86. [14:59] (@Mdann52) But the vice coord should have the same powers in theory, but they just support
  87. [14:59] (@Pratyya) then we have 3-4 candidates on both place. The 2 highest vote gainer will be the place holders.
  88. [15:00] (@Pratyya) in my ideology v coord should have a little less power than the coord.
  89. [15:00] (@Pratyya) but u r right Mdann52 it is same.
  90. [15:01] (@Mdann52) The one that gets the most votes is coord
  91. [15:01] ** ChanServ sets mode(s) +v Kolega2357
  92. [15:01] (@Mdann52) Pratyya, I agree - v coord has less power in theory
  93. [15:01] (+Sourov0000) Yes, that is a good idea. The v. coord will be eligible of doing all the tasks, but the tasks will be assigned by the co-ordinator or something like this.
  94. [15:01] (@Pratyya) yep, good idea Mdann52
  95. [15:02] (@Pratyya) the one gets highest vote is coord
  96. [15:02] (@Mdann52) Yep - and they take over if the coord disappears or goes on a wikibreak or something
  97. [15:03] (@Pratyya) and without those two the founder will do there work as I'm doing the work, is it right Mdann52 ?
  98. [15:03] (@Mdann52) Yes - until we get round to the next election....
  99. [15:04] (@Pratyya) what powers will have these two post?
  100. [15:04] (@Pratyya) Mdann52: and Sourov0000 ?
  101. [15:05] (+Sourov0000) Yes, good question, Mdann52, please assist us in this regard
  102. [15:05] (@Mdann52) They nominate an article for improvement, oversee any GA or FA noms, and keep the to-do list up to date
  103. [15:06] (@Mdann52) And try and recruit new people
  104. [15:06] (@Pratyya) v.cord can do these but with the permission of coord. am I Right Mdann52 and Sourov0000 ?
  105. [15:07] (@Mdann52) Yes - vcoord can do them, but only if the coord is not about
  106. [15:07] (+Sourov0000) That's sound quite right
  107. [15:08] (@Pratyya) also they'll have all the power to make this project more available and useful?
  108. [15:08] (@Pratyya) they can make or change rules?
  109. [15:08] (@Pratyya) Mdann52: Sourov0000 ?
  110. [15:08] (+Sourov0000) Certainly
  111. [15:09] ** Mdann52 has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)

  116. [15:09] (+Sourov0000) But the rules mustn't have any bad impact on the project
  117. [15:09] (+Mdann52) Yes
  118. [15:10] (@Pratyya) that's too sure.
  119. [15:10] (+Mdann52) That's why the project can vote to get rid of them again
  120. [15:10] (@Pratyya) if they do this they'll be kicked :P
  121. [15:11] (+Mdann52) Lol :P
  122. [15:11] (+Sourov0000) Yes
  123. [15:11] (+Mdann52) Topic banned is the correct term I think....
  124. [15:11] (@Pratyya) now v.coord and coord will have OP here if there nick is registered.
  125. [15:12] (+Mdann52) Yes
  126. [15:12] (+Mdann52) Should I keep hold of it in case they break anything?
  127. [15:13] (+Sourov0000) Yes, it will be better if you do so. Mdann52
  128. [15:13] (+Mdann52) Ok
  129. [15:13] (@Pratyya) we two are will be always the OP here cause we are one of the founders of this channel.

  137. [15:14] ** Pratyya sets mode(s) +o Mdann52
  138. [15:15] (@Pratyya) that's true. but we can register another channel and u know after this they'll never be trusted.
  139. [15:15] (@Pratyya) Mdann52:
  140. [15:15] (@Mdann52) Right... any other business?
  141. [15:16] (@Pratyya) yes. now when will our election start?
  142. [15:16] (@Pratyya) Mdann52: ?

  145. [15:17] (@Mdann52) Once I sort it all out
  146. [15:17] (+Sourov0000) We can post a Message on the Project page about the election.
  147. [15:18] (@Pratyya) also we need a commissioner to audit and organise the election.
  148. [15:18] (+Sourov0000) And also on the talkpage of all the members of the project.
  149. [15:18] (@Pratyya) who'll be that person?
  150. [15:18] (@Pratyya) Mdann52:
  151. [15:18] (@Mdann52) I can message everyone about it
  152. [15:18] (@Mdann52) I will
  153. [15:18] (@Mdann52) I won't stand for it
  154. [15:18] (@Pratyya) no worry that person can be a candidate in the election as it's open.
