Proposal Type: Bylaw Revision

Closing: 20-Jul-2017 12:00AM EDT


Greetings Council,

 
I, Nicholas Lambaunas, Head Coordinator of One World by Night propose the following addition to the Administrative Bylaws, 8. 
The former bylaws will be relabeled B, C, D, and E.
 
Should this pass, there will be a 60 day grace period to come into compliance with the new bylaw. 
 
Reason: 
All game sites should be an equal opportunity play space for all players to participate in. Those with allergies and reserve about being around a pets or smokey environments should not feel excluded from attending for those reasons. 
 
Respectfully,
Nick

  1. Administrative Responsibilities< >Disciplinary Policy

    Every chronicle must have a written disciplinary policy which must be made available either on the chronicles' website or at the check-in desk.

    Chronicles who do not have a web site must submit their disciplinary policy to the Archivist.

    The copy on file with the Archivist is considered the current, official policy of the chronicle.

    It is the responsibility of the local chronicle to submit updates or revisions of disciplinary policies to the Archivist.

    House Rules

    Local House Rules must be made available either on the chronicles' website or at the check-in desk.

    Chronicles who do not have a web site must submit any local House Rules to the Archivist.

    The copy on file with the Archivist is considered the current edition.

    It is the responsibility of the local chronicle to submit updates or revisions of disciplinary policies to the Archivist.

    Item Cards

    As of May 12th, 2003, no item card shall be valid for play in OWBN unless it has clearly written or stamped on it the date on which this approval was given, the name and chronicle of an OWBN ST who has approved it and will take responsibility for its existence in the network.

    The ST who originally approves an item card for play in OWBN may be held accountable to Council for its existence. Items that may be more then they appear should have distinct marking instructing the user to contact that ST for further information or simply limit the use of the item to their own chronicle.

    STs may refuse to allow cards they do not approve of to enter play in their game. If an ST feels that a card may be very damaging to the network, he or she may confiscate the card from the visiting player, and return it directly to the responsible STs.

    Reporting

    1. All reports are out-of-character information except as specifically and mutually agreed between Storytellers and Coordinators for the sake of story, plot or continuity.
    2. Chronicles that do not speak or write English as a primary language are encouraged to maintain contact with OWBN as above, as best they can. The Council understands that reports may not arrive in English.
    3. Chronicle reporting< >Each member and satellite chronicle of OWBN is required to report to the Archivist and OWbN Coordinators via the appropriate Internet submission form on the OWBN website.< >A submitted report may be denied by the Archivists if they deem it incomplete or improper.

      The Archivists must justify their denial and present guidelines to fix it.

      The chronicle may appeal to the Exec Team if they disagree with the decision. The Exec Team will then decide if the report is to be accepted or redone.

      OWbN Council will be the final arbiter of any disputes, should Exec Team's decision not be accepted.

      In the case of Satellite games, the Full Member Chronicle must be included on all notifications and communications.

      The report may be written by any member of the storytelling staff of each chronicle, but must be submitted by either the HST or Council Member, to ensure its validity. These reports shall be due by January 1st and July 1st.

      Chronicle reports are to be submitted in order to:

      Keep track of your Chronicle so we know you're still operational.

      Log any issues the chronicles may have.

      Encourage interaction with less vocal chronicles.

      Maintain an approximate census of our population.

      Keep record of major events within chronicles.
