[TTT] Committee Voting System
#1
Hey all, we want to make some changes to how voting works in TTT. To give some history as to why voting is the way it is: Voting used to be open to all staff, but it ended up turning into a situation where you had to be friends with the right people to get anywhere, and certain groups would just force people out they didn’t like. So in 2014ish the co-owner, Tyler, restricted voting to admin and higher. The original system and what it turned into are kind of on the extreme of possibilities for voting, so we want to now try something in the middle. The aim is to greater involve the entire staff body in objective conversation without things getting unruly.

Essentially, voting for different things will be divided into different committees. Staff members will be able to join a certain number of these committees and will be appointed by the Admins based on their skills and preferences. For example, someone who is uniquely impartial and a good judge of character may be appointed to a staff app committee if they desire the role. Members of committees can drop out of their committees or can apply to transfer between committees on request.


These committees will have tiered voting where different roles get more votes such that different groups in the committee largely have the same voting power. Members would also need to maintain activity on the server to retain voting ability in their respective committees. Admins will serve on ALL COMMITTEES and as Committee Leaders to help keep things on track. For some committees, a mod may be assigned as the point man who will take over the majority of organization and planning.

The directive and requirements for committees are as follows:
Committee Leadership Team: Sets the agenda for the committees and provides oversight. All TTT Upper Staff members will serve on this team. ADMIN+ ONLY.
Moderator App Committee: Approve/Decline Mod Apps    MOD+ ONLY
Test Mod App Committee: Approve/Decline Test Mod Apps    MOD+ ONLY
Trusted App Committee: Approve/Decline Trusted Apps    TMOD+ ONLY
Ban/Unban Committee: Approve/Decline Major Scale Bans when deemed necessary(ban requests/routine in-game bans will still function the same as before). Also Approve/Decline Unban Requests    TMOD+ ONLY
Training Committee: Design training schemes and assign members of committee to train new and rising staff    TMOD+ ONLY
Suggestions Committee: Consolidate suggestions for new server content, decide what does and does not make sense, keep track of changes that are implemented   TRUSTED+
Discord Moderation Committee: Determine rules and regulations for the discord server, discuss bans for individuals, moderate the chats, enforce rules, help select new members for committee   TRUSTED+

--------------------------------

Initial committee assignments are as follows:
To create these assignments we got the preferences of each staff member and assigned them such that they were assigned only to committees they listed as wanting to be in, there were enough people on each committee, and staff were in no more than 3 committees with a preference towards 2.

Moderator App Committee: 
Test Mod App Committee: 
Trusted App Committee:  
Ban/Unban Committee:
Training Committee: 
Suggestions Committee:   
Discord Moderation Committee: This is a joint TTT/PH committee and will require an application, located in Discord Staff Applications. 


Notes, Requirements, and Rules
  1. As a result of this system, sponsors are no longer needed for staff apps in TTT.
  2. Admins(Committee Leaders) are the supervisors of these committees that set the agenda and keep things in order. Admins also reserve the right to remove disruptive individuals that violate the committee rules with Dinkleberg's approval. This can include but isn't limited to showing favoritism and other bias behaviors.
  3. If a person receives the rank of Trusted, Test Mod, or Moderator they MUST wait a minimum of one month from the time of promotion to be eligible for those rank-specific committee assignments.
  4.  If a staff member has not opted to join a committee yet, they may contact an Admin for further instructions and then the Admins will determine which committees they will be assigned to.
  5. A staff member may only be in up to three committee assignments and can resign from the committee at any time or request a transfer application that will either be accepted or denied by the Admins.
  6. In order to be vote eligible on a committee, that staff member must maintain a minimum of 10 hours in a span of two weeks, same for Admins.
  7. Admins shall be the ones to comment the final decisions on that specific thread/topic.
  8. There are no limit to how many people can serve on a committee, but the number should always be odd. In the event of a tie, it shall be broken by deliberation of Upper Staff on the best course of action.
  9. There are also more internal rules and procedures for committee members to follow.

Why do you have specific people sequestered into individual committees instead of letting all staff have the option to cast votes on any issue? This seems like the admin voting system but with slightly different/more people if I'm being honest here.

That's literally how it will be now, people are still forcing out people they don't like. What i was trying to get at is because of these committees the issue will be even more prevalent and will only further the rumors of favoritism among certain staff

These groups wont just go unchecked. Admins will still be there to ensure history doesn't repeat itself.

We can either try something that's never been tried before or go back to a system that's failed before. It's worth trying and we brought this idea up to all staff before making this post and no one had an issue in public or private with trying this system.
