Discussion - What is the hopper?
« on: January 29, 2020, 04:52:14 AM »
First of all, is the Hopper part of the Ziu and should it therefore fall under Ziu moderation rules? On the one hand it obviously has a function related to legislation and is primarily used by the Ziu, on the other hand the OrgLaw states that the hopper is administered by the SoS, who is not a Ziu member. Also, we allow non MZ's to post in the hopper as well...

Secondly, what is even the hopper. The OrgLaw mentions it as a venue for inspection of bills, but inspection is not the same as discussion, which is what the hopper is now, a discussionboard. The lexhatx also mentions that after X days legislation can be removed from the hopper (language that originally came from the Orglaw, I think?), but how would that work? I dont plan on removing entire discussion threads… Maybe the Hopper, as Organically defined should just be a single thread in the hopper that lists which bills and which versions are currently active, as in, not removed from the hopper or withdrawn to be clarked.

Thoughts?

Also, should there be a standard for whether bills should be amended by editing the original post or by creating a new post with the amended version. Currently, everyone seems to be doing something else...
