The way I see it is that voting on topics becomes increasingly more difficult the lower down the chain you go. If you will recall the discussion revolving around the creation of an idpol board we held votes on that that were clearly tampered with. As far as being in the form of "If no one has anything against" I am not necessarily against this, but, you and us would all have to be willing to have extended periods of debate as there is rarely going to be conclusion and mostly going to be abjection. I do not dislike the idea though. I wanted to create /soviet/ where the issues by the user base could be brought to the table and voted by the user base directly, but, at the time it was not applicable according to the rest of the staff.
I could probably bring it back up though. I think it's a good idea. Thank you.
