VloggerHeads

Proposing the following changes to the Preamble to be voted on in the next election

The new Preamble:

 

VloggerHeads is a community-owned and community-administrated website.

The website was originally founded by Tom Guarriello and Paul Robinett, who are honorary life time members.

 

The VloggerHeads community, consisting of all members of VloggerHeads and represented by the registered voters of VloggerHeads, owns the website Vloggerheads.

Membership is free of charge. The position of registered voter is free of charge.

The financial liabilities of the site will be covered by donations from the community.

 

The members of the VloggerHeads community are bound by the Terms of Service (ToS), a document separate from the Governance Procedures and modified only by vote of registered voters.

 

 This document was accepted by the Citizens of VloggerHeads in the first vote on April 21st, 2010.

The changes to this document pertaining to community ownership were accepted by the community of VH in vote vote on April …., 2012.

We'd have to vote on that anyway and it looks more generous if we state it in our preamble (and reminds everyone that there is a financial side to this).

I'd say a little paradox can go a long way:)

Concerning the profits from a store. I think the store should not be run officially by VH. That would mean that we are making profit from the site (though indirectly) and could be a problem with copyright infractions. If the store is run by a private person who occasionally makes donations to VH, that problem seems solved.

@lima

I think we should show some graciousness. Should one of our two honorary members behave in a not so honourable way, he could be suspended for... - just not banned:)

^Since everything else is in the present tense.

Looks good to me.

I'm glad to see that the membership, and the position of registered voters stays free of charge.

I've seen a few months ago~ in the blog discussions that it was a possible idea to start charging members, or charging for the position of registered voter. Once I saw that kind of thing being said, I turned away thinking "Oh, Hell~No!" Not really a wise way to go~ at least for now. Personally, I think that would kill what's left of this place, and keep new people from joining. ~~~That's just my opinion. So, I'm glad to see that did not happen, and you kept that the way it was.

I could have stepped in on those blog discussions, and gave my opinion like I just did, but at that time I felt that there was no hope left for the site, and seeing folks scramble at the last minute trying to keep the site strong, etc. Plus~ I did not want to get into any fights with folks over my opinions, but since I'm good at it in real life~ I guess I could do it here from time to time. I just don't like to.

All-in-all, Like I said~ Looks good to me. I'm starting to see hope in the site again.

Thank you for your hard work thus far, Marcel. :)

The financial liabilities of the site will be are to be covered by donations from the community.

This would be the better present tense of the change that Marcel intended
