    What this vote will accomplish:
    Begin a rule-editing project. Gather the staff and/or community together and see what rules need editing or deletion, and if any need to be added.

    Vote starter:
    Matskuman5

    General consensus:
    Yes. There's plenty of outdated and poorly worded rules that need to be reworked.

    Further details of how this project will be organized will be discussed internally in the admin team.

    The council voted to write a non-committal draft of rules? What a waste of my non-existent Yog tax dollars!

    I don't think this needed to be a vote in any way. Why not try having the community vote on the worst worded/used/whatever rules we have, put them on a top ten list and then tackle them from the top down one at a time rather than trying to change everything at once?

    We tried this during the great yogstation reform, we had an open google docs and some people making suggestions etc.

    Know what we got? The exact same rules as before with slightly different phrasing.

    I probed out Matt a bit with my suggestion that we start with security rules. Since he showed no interest and rejected it I suspect Matt's main goal with this is to try and force through the Medium RP rules we rejected last month.

    Rules rework =/= more rules.

    The entire point of this rework was because the rules list is filled with overworded, unnecessarily complicated and purely outdated rules that need to be cleaned up.

    I helped Gray and John with the last open-community rule editing project. The only thing we accomplished (I think) was rules on new content from the rebase.

    Everything else either became too wordy or too unnecessary to replace with the original rules. It's not a good idea to do this again. Maybe you could just look at ban appeals and admin complaints and decide THERE what needs to be improved.

    I still have this useless bunch of Google Docs documents if anyone wants to PM me for access to 'em. I'm looking at @matskuman5.

    Thank God. Silicon policy is a convoluted nightmare of contradictions. I'm exaggerating slightly. But only slightly.
