Thread: Tribunal Expediency Act

  1. #1

    Default Tribunal Expediency Act

    Pursuant to the recent delays regarding the Tribunal, I propose the following.

    I. In the event the Tribunal is unable to conduct its normal function due to inactivity of the Tribunes, the following protocol shall be put into place:
    A. Any pending appeal that is filed within a period of inactivity, or unresolved before such period of inactivity, shall be subject to a stay of punishment.
    B. In the event a period of inactivity is resolved and an appeal resolved in judgment adverse to appellant, the full punishment shall be served.
    C. A stay of punishment SHALL NOT apply to any violations of the Terms of Service pursuant to sections 1.17.13; 1.7.11; 1.7.5; or 1.7.9.


    Definitions:

    "Inactivity" shall be defined as any period of time in which a sitting Tribune has not logged into TWC for two or more weeks.
    "Stay" shall be defined as a postponement of any penalty associated with a moderator interaction until Tribunal inactivity is resolved.

    Can an issued infraction be suspended from a technical perspective?

    yes please, go ahead with this, discuss, rephrase the amendment a few times, vote, while the administration laughs thinking who the hell do you think you are.

    Edit: You might want to ad this to the op: Tribunes are the two Hex appointed members of the Tribunal.

    I think Hex would be ill advised to laugh at these proposals. Hex isn't going to reward you for carrying water. You only stand to lose.

    So

    Insulting Others

    Impersonation

    Harassment or Invasion of Privacy

    should be consequenceless during a vacancy?

    No good idea, as it will lead to even more bloody wars between left wing and right wing.

    It is almost as if I am being intentionally expansive as to responsibly regulating the Tribunal since Hex has proven out of its league in that role...

    Or maybe it would lead to Hex opening their minds regarding candidates and selecting someone outside of their good ol' boys club

    Amen brother.

    Used to be people with differing opinions were forced to deal with each other instead of everyone blindly nodding in unison to the consensus. This Tribunal issue is just the terminal tumor of the underlying systemic cancer. I refuse to let the good ol boys club dismantle the tribunal in service to the good ol boys club. I will die on this hill. "Not enough activity/interest" my left ass cheek.

    Not everyone.

    Not those, who do nothing in this forum except speading hate against "chicoms, gypsies, libruls, femnazis...".

    We have already a Curia, which is exculping the worst group insults, we don't need a Tribune of this kind too.

    The Curia does not perform the function of the Tribunal. Not sure what you are referring to.

    I could support for non-serious offenses. However, more serious ones like the quoted examples, should not be. The tribunal is not a court. The appellant is not innocent until proven guilty. They appealing the proper application of the ToS, not being put on trial for an accusation.

    Anyone who is accused of anything is innocent until proven guilty. The numbers have been provided here before but a significant number of appealed infractions are granted. Those two facts are incompatible with your notion that appeals are unnecessary and that infractions always represent the proper application of the ToS.

    You are not accused when you are infracted, you are guilty of the violation. The Tribunal is an appeal proceeding. You are appealing your punishment.

    The Tribunal
    To defend the rights of Members, and to ensure fair and just punishment towards those who violate the laws of TWC.
