Sect Coord Redefinition - Vs 2

Open Votes

Proposal Type: Bylaw Revision
Opened: 27-Apr-2010 1:00AM EDT
Closing: 27-Apr-2010 1:00AM EDT


This is a [PROPOSAL] under Admin Bylaws 3.A and as such need to be [SECOND]ed before it can proceed to a vote, according to 3A.iii.
I hereby propose the following changes to the By-Laws.

This is the same as what I send some days ago, now without the text "a. Appearances, messages, or statements/edicts made by these NPCs by the Genre Coordinator that may impact the Sect as a whole must be approved by the appropriate Sect Coordinator."

It still requires that the Sect Coord be a party into any BA for PCs in service of the Sect, as well as in any communications involving those PCs. It also still grants them joint control of Sect key NPCs, though the lack of approvation power will leave it quite in the same situation we have today.
