Election procedure[edit]

Seeing the deadline to decide procedure is today yesterday, I propose we use last year's procedure, dates of course readjusted to the one's listed here. —Mikemoral♪♫ 06:03, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Since you did mention readjusting dates accordingly, I edited the 2011 election page here to reflect the July 10 date that's been discussed for settling membership of the election committee. Otherwise, this seems merely an elaboration of what's been before us for about two months, and is fine by me.
I've suggested putting the committee membership and nominations in their own top-level sections at the bottom of the page, figuring they should show on the page's table of contents. I also went so far as to list the names of the two people who have, thus far, said on the policy water cooler they would be willing to serve on the election committee. --Pi zero (talk) 22:28, 4 July 2011 (UTC)
That seems fine. And now hopefully we don't come across during the voting period. —Mikemoral♪♫ 22:33, 4 July 2011 (UTC)

I was part of the election committee? Whoops ... I blame it on real life. fetch·comms 03:47, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Notice[edit]

Not sure if the timeline has been publicized enough. Where has the schedule been posted and notices given? -- Cirt (talk) 07:35, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

On-wiki measures I'm aware of:
  1. May 7, flagged discussion started by User:Brian at Wikinews talk:Arbitration Committee#election proposal '11.
  2. June 29, water cooler discussion started by User:Pi zero at Wikinews:Water cooler/policy#ArbCom elections.

A notice should be emailed to a few lists. It should be made as a notice at the central watchlist notification. -- Cirt (talk) 15:44, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Is there a detailed description of this procedure somewhere? --Pi zero (talk) 15:55, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Just prior election history. I'm just throwing out suggestions here. :) -- Cirt (talk) 16:12, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
What mailing lists would you suggest? (I don't know my way around the mailing lists; it was once high on my list of things to do, but my enthusiasm waned when I realized it would involve adding to my plethora of passwords.)
I've put it on MediaWiki:Sitenotice. --Pi zero (talk) 17:16, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Well, the general one for wikinews, and maybe wikipedia or foundation. -- Cirt (talk) 18:09, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

It's also in the topic for #wikinews. —Mikemoral♪♫ 02:25, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

And I posted to the mailing list a few minutes ago. —Mikemoral♪♫ 02:33, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Thank you! :) -- Cirt (talk) 02:45, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
You're welcome. :) —Mikemoral♪♫ 02:57, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
