ESB holds a Convention each year to review our rules, policies, and bylaws. This page serves as the master location for all convention discussions.

IntroductionEdit

On October 26, 2017, a motion passed to call a convention. The following was adopted:

  • A. To hold a Convention in which the duration and format will be decided later, to discuss the following:
  • 1. Establishing a set of bylaws or a constitution to serve as the supreme governing document covering the whole of ESB and will have provisions for amending the set of bylaws during an annual convention or other times.
  • 2. Establishing an official mission statement.
  • 3. Discuss important matters in a more organized and efficient setting that would include addressing such fundamental problems as trolling, harassment, sockpuppetry, drama, rage quitting and returning, power hunger, friend voting, and others.
  • 4. Establish the relationship, hierarchy, and function between "bylaws," "policies," "procedures," and "guidelines."
  • 5. Establish the rules and procedures for future annual conventions.
  • B. Upon the passage of this proposal, the following would occur immediately:
  • 1. The opening of the convention at ESB:Convention 2017 to bring all such discussion there.
  • 2. The first order of convention business will be to establish convention rules. Such rules shall be established by discussion and voting in accordance with the current "Proposal" policies prior to additional convention business.
  • 3. Suspension of all discussions and proposals in regards to policy and procedure changes but not including guidelines, as we divert discussions to the convention so as to not overlap and cause confusion. All current policy change proposals shall continue until their conclusion, but no future proposal shall be created until the end of the convention. The suspension shall end at the close of the convention, which shall occur upon a vote of adjournment in accordance with the approved bylaws.
