Question on Resolution 3 from me;

"MP explained that the election rules are currently entrenched, so that they could not be changed by the membership, and that this would continue with the new election rules."

I wasn't present, but is there a typo here? I would suggest "so that they could not be changed except by the membership" is more accurate. The Land (talk) 20:51, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Good point, 'except' was missing here. Thanks for catching that! Mike Peel (talk) 21:31, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

There is a "JC" in the minutes. Who is that? Deryck Chan (talk) 23:08, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Almost certain it was John Cummings. Have added that in - thanks for spotting it! Richard Symonds (WMUK) (talk) 10:52, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Tallies[edit source]

Happy with these, including my comments recorded. But the notation of the votes reads oddly. Wouldn't:

  • For: 17 (in the room), 53 in favour (in total including proxy votes).
  • Against: 5 (in the room), 9 against (in total including proxy votes).

- read better as:

  • For: 53 in total including proxy votes (17 in the room)
  • Against: 9 in total including proxy votes (5 in the room)

- or something like that? Johnbod (talk) 17:16, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

That would indeed read better, thanks for the suggestion - now done. :-) Mike Peel (talk) 19:28, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
