Proposal Type: Bylaw Revision
Opened: 08-Jun-2010 1:00AM EDT

In an effort to improve visibility and transparency I propose that Section 3, Sub Section C, Item iii be amended with a new section stating that the changes proposed by the genre coordinators must conform to the guidelines put forth by the existing bylaws. Updates to the existing categories with-in the by-laws such as R&U classifications and Blood Magic classifications but must be specified as separate line items within the proposal text, and that any changes to to the bylaws require a vote and may not be auto-passed.


iii. Genre Coordinators must pass before Council any plot, enforced policy,
R&U named characters, or binding edict they wish to use which they can
reasonably expect to affect multiple chronicles and these proposals need
not be seconded, but go immediately into discussion.

1. If no opposition is voiced during the week of discussion, the proposal
is considered passed and enforceable. Once passed these are
considered binding to all chronicles and a chronicles refusal to
adhere is grounds for OWBN disciplinary measures. Opposition must
be in regards to the content of the proposal and must give those
reasons why the objection is voiced. This is to allow Coordinator's
the opportunity to respond and/or make changes/remove the
proposal and its contents.

2. Those that seem to affect only one chronicle only need local ST
approval. In this case, conflicts with the chronicle are subject to point
three above.

3. Coordinators may bring before Council any dispute between
themselves and another Coordinator or ST in which they feel OWBN
wide consistency or global genre is at stake, and Council shall make
a timely investigation and judgment.

4. Passing new R&U Named characters before council is to be treated
as something which affects multiple chronicles.

5. Any Proposal that utilizes Justicar NPC(s) for the purposes of
enforcing genre policy over the Organization requires the consent of
either the Camarilla Coordinator or the Genre Coordinator that
controls the Justicar NPC in question. Council may not utilize the
Justicar NPCs to Propose a Genre Proposal without this consent.


6. All Genre Proposals must conform to the existing bylaws and defined classifications, if there is conflict between the two the bylaws take precedents. The individual classification of R&U and Magic/Disciplines must be specified within proposal as line items, these changes must be voted upon and may not autopass. Changes to the bylaws beyond R&U classification; R&U Bylaws Sections 3 through 6 and Character Regulation Bylaws Section 8 are outside the Genre Coordinators perview. Any changes to the bylaws must be incorporated into the bylaws.
