WA Queue suggestion

Postby Valipac » Sat Jul 11, 2009 11:14 pm

Perhaps the Queue could be shown in a different location of the other WA proposals? Currently the queue of things to be voted on takes up all but one of the first page's slots for proposals, which can prevent proposals from being seen. What do ya think?

That makes sense.
The Confederated Clans of the Free Bears of Bears Armed
(includes The Ursine NorthLands) Demonym = Bear[s]; adjective = ‘Urrsish’.
Our population is approximately 20 million. We do have a national government, although its role is strictly limited. Economy = thriving. Those aren't "biker gangs", they're our traditional cross-Clan 'Warrior Societies'... and are generally respected, not feared.

Though I've been told the queue is a difficult thing to code, or change.

I'd like this.

At the moment I think almost the entire first page is taken up with queued proposals from both councils.
It is a tad annoying....

I would support this.

Changing the code of the queue has been made a bit difficult because there is no longer a grace period between voting sessions. The benefit of a 12-hour grace period is that it allows maintenance and expansions to be added without too many side-effects.

Submitted for the technician's consideration.

Oh, and it doesn't help that the most time-sensitive proposal in WA history is in the queue at the moment either... Liberate Belgium!

I've added this idea to zee big list. Good Work!

Bummer. Hopefully it's not too difficult, and they can do this.

I don't know but it wouldn't be worth going through the Food Welfare Act voting bug again...

Isn't it technically possible to remove a queue'd proposal from the queue by getting delegates that endorsed it to pull their endorsements? (Not a rhetorical question; I'm genuinely curious) If so, proposals in queue are still technically at vote.
I wish I remember who wrote:Games like Nationstates are like a big cardboard box, and there are two kinds of people in the world. The kind who look at the empty void inside the box and ask "Where the hell is it?" and the kind who jump into the box with their friends and make it into a fort, or a spaceship.

I don't think so, because Quorum can change in three days, or in a week (with our current dilemma), therefore if you were on the positive edge of Quorum you would be screwed if the bar was raised slightly while your proposal was still in the queue.

Yes this happened to my proposal several times. It would have 1 or 2 over and then some delegates unapprove or lose their seat and it was removed from queue and status was changed back to 'lacking support'.

SC #3 ~ Condemn Nazi Europe [SORRY!]

SC #67 ~ Commend Naivetry
SC #71 ~ Repeal Condemn Unknown.
