Site Charter

Charter Purpose

O5 Command exists to facilitate three primary jobs for wiki staff. These are:

  1. Site Discipline: Warning, tempbans, permabans
  2. Site Maintenance: Deletions and projects
  3. Policy Discussion: New rules and promotions

The following charter addresses protocol for these three jobs.

Charter Review

Optionally, once per year, the charter itself will be put up for review to ensure that this document remains relevant and useful to the site. At this time, by the will of a clear majority of staff (as defined by the charter's definition of majority at the time of the review), the charter can be changed and altered more easily and fluidly to help it come more into line with the current culture of the site.

This process is started by administration at the beginning of July (though this may be delayed for up to two weeks to avoid overwhelming O5 if a current, serious discussion is taking place), and it will last until a majority of staff agree on the current text of the charter or to forgo the process until the following year.

Individual portions of the charter should be voted on during this time. New portions can be added to the charter, but they should probably have their own discussions, as this process would be more to correct problems with existing policies rather than create new ones.

Once discussion is complete, a designated administrator will update the charter as needed.
