This page is for petitions, a successor to the "Ideas for GFE" threads.


  • A. General
  • 1. Petitions are a way for any user to bring up an idea/suggestion/complaint before any discussion phase.
  • 2. This prevents certain unpopular/unnecessary topics from being discussed in an official format.
  • 3. This allows all ideas/suggestions to be discussed in their own space and outside of chat meetings.
  • B. Process
  • 1. Ask a bureaucrat if they would endorse something to go straight to discussion before creating a petition. This would allow skipping the petition process if necessary.
  • 2. A page will be created for all petitions to be added and listed.
  • 3. Any user can start a petition.
  • 4. Once the petition receives three (3) endorsements from the community, the petition can go to an official discussion.
  • 5. Petitions automatically expire after six (6) months. Afterward, a user can recreate an expired petition if they wish.
  • 6. If a petition receives at least ten (10) opposes and no supports after one (1) week, the petition may be closed.
