As per Forum:The Tyranny of Consensus in a Discordant Era I am reposting my proposal to hopefully generate more discussion of a simplified idea:

I suggest that we have a less formal process to allow users to propose their changes via a meta thread which can be closed after a shorter time period, say 1-2 days in line with a thread objecting to a thread as established in the previous thread. There must be at least 24 hours following the proposal before the changes are implemented. Users can discuss the idea; a meta admin can then close the thread, and server techs are obliged to implement the changes if there is consensus.


Support - as proposer. Isobel talk page 13:37, 2 September 2022 (UTC)

Support, however - if there is not a clear consensus after 24 hours, such as due to no activity other than the proposer or an active engaged dialogue with split opinions, then a meta admin should clarify at that time that the thread should remain open for the standard period for a thread prior to concluding the discussion.

Closed - There is consensus for the proposal; however threads should remain open for the normal amount of time if there is no clear consensus after 24 hours. Isobel talk page 19:20, 1 October 2022 (UTC)
