Intended for the Edit Discussion thread.
It is granted, unilateral decisions have to made by a BMORG technocrat
whenever he or she is 'knee-deep' in developing a particular 'progress'
. There's simply not enough availability or expediency to gather a consensus
at every fork of a decision making processes when trying to fulfill a particular module
However, there does exist in the weeks or days or even minutes following
such a unilateral decision, the opportunity to examine if whether or not that decision
with the group consensus
. Congruent? No bother. But on the instances where the technocracy
makes a unilateral decision
that is not congruent with the consensus
, then it may be an indication of a poor decision, even if the consensus
can never be accurately 'polled': In the name of progress, such a decision can be reversed and a change of path can be afforded.
Here is the particular matter of concern-

that has been brought up (in Edit Discussion
) in the last few weeks is that we want an Edit button, reassured by agreement that an Edit button would be re-instated, albeit an Edit button with a time-limit, and made doubly self-evident by the fact that we are now testing an Edit button module. To make the Policy Discussion
for the Edit button, but all the while making the Edit button available to the Drunk
thread, doesn't make a whole lot of sense! And it certainly
is not congruent with consensus. The unilateral proclamation
that the Pol
on forum simply will not host an Edit button is, at face value, an act of laziness
against fulfilling the mandate of the consensus
The 'Timed Edit Mod Feedback
' thread seems more of a place to write test-posts. The 'Edit Discussion
' thread is the established
thread for discussion of the Edit button. We should discuss this (t)here
- What is the rationale behind no-Edit button within Pol
on? Why should our ability to restore dropped words and fix typos be denied, especially in an area where writing requires a lot more nuance in carrying across complex ideas when examining board policy? Let's discuss this.
