Pirate Manifesto Amendments Rules

Jump to: navigation, search
  • Each pirate party is allowed to decide whether is going to propose amendments as a party, or will allow its member to individually propose amendments.
    • Pirate parties have to specify how are they going to propose amendments.
    • If a pirate party is going to allow their members to individually propose amendments, the author has to identify himself adding the party where does belong together with the ID used in his party -i.e., a number, a nickname or whatever ID is used in his party-.
  • A same author can propose several amendments for a same paragraph, as long as those amendments present grammar and/or conceptual differences; otherwise, it will be always up to that author to modify his/her amendment.
  • Because of the forementioned, when two or more amendments affect the same paragraphs and/or sections, being from different authors, there must exist grammar and/or conceptual differences.
    • Otherwise, the oldest one will have the preference, noticing the responsible of the Amendments Central to the author of the most recent one/ones the need to introduce grammar and/or conceptual changes in order to avoid their amendments to become annulled.
  • To avoid collisions between two or more amendments simultaneously presented, and as this wiki is designed to avoid those collisions while editing a concrete page -due to following a chronological order, first to propose an amendment will get the chosen rank and others will have to use the next one-, procedure will run as follows:
    • In the present page the author of the amendment will add a new subsection for the new amendment in the amendments list, following the current order
    • Once introduced the new amendment and filled the amendment sections -thus securing the rank-, the author will proceed with the writing of the contents of the amendment (existing amendments can be used as sample)
  • Parties which, instead of allowing their members to individually propose amendments, are going to propose amendments as a party, are allowed to use the Blocking amendment? label to warn the rest of parties that the approval of a specific amendment would be required for that party to support the Final Draft.
    • People from parties who allow their members to individually propose amendments are not allowed to label their amendments as being blocking, as they propose their amendments on their own and not representing their parties.
    • It is strongly recommended to not abuse of blocking amendments, using this label only for really crucial issues, if any -not expected to be too many, as First Draft was written according to pirate parties' common stances-.
