For reps, I think we could either have one rep per shop, or possibly 3 categories. These could be small, medium, large. Small (usually only one member) only has one rep so they don't struggle for volunteers for the role. Medium has two so they can balance it. Large (like the space shop) could have three so one person isn't overloaded with work.

Nice concept. I totally agree as it would stop large shops from having huge votes. If we get a couple more opinions I would be happy to start an official vote on it .

Although, I’d say that now The Space Shop is a small-medium Shop now. We only have like 3-5 members who remained active.

My shop has 5-7 members active, so i'd be in the middle of medium and large

Mega-vote on section 11, section 12 and changes to section 2.
As the SPA has had a period of multiple owners and threads, I have decided to provide a vote on some features for the long term of the SPA based on our previous, huge state. The current period of time provides us with an opportunity to step back and introduce some laws for the longevity of the SPA. These will be voted on in the official SPA voting thread (this) on the 00:00 UTC 25th May 2019. We will vote on it based on shop representation (equal representation), so only shop owners will be able to vote. Of course, if this section is passed that will no longer be the case for most votes. Anyway, here are the laws + explanations on why they will help the SPA.

Addition to Section 2: Shop/Representative requirements.
2.9: Shops must select 1-3 representatives based on their size.
2.9.1: The amount of representatives will be judged by hellounicorns2 or the president every 2 weeks.
2.9.1.1: All shops will be checked for size as well as activity during this time.
2.10: Shop representatives may be asked to vote in elections or votes.
2.10.1: For the sake of simplicity sometimes votes will be hosted based on equal representation, however this will not be used for important votes.
2.10.2: The drafter of the policy will decide whether the vote is passed via representatives or shops.

This proposition is mainly to introduce a suggestion made by LoLa. It allows for larger shops to have a good say in voting but stops them from being the only decision makers. Of course, all members matter . It also allows for equal representation to be used where necessary for a more simple vote.

Section 11: Shop Charter (credit to Co49 for the suggestion a while back)
11.1: Workers must be able to request leave from their shop.
11.1.1: Shops should grant most leave requests.
11.1.2: A good explanation must be given for rejecting a leave request (in exceptional cases).
11.1.3: Workers must not be penalised for being inactive during their leave.
11.2: Shops must not act maliciously towards one another.
11.2.1: Shops must not try to actively damage the reputation of one another.
11.2.2: Shops must not lie about other shops or workers of other shops.
11.2.3: Shops must not actively try to start flame wars with each other.
11.2.4: Shops must not steal work from each other.
11.2.5: Shops must honour partnership deals between each other.
11.3: Shops may dismiss workers for good reason.
11.3.1: If the wrongdoing by a worker is minor, at least one warning must be given and time to improve before the worker is dismissed.
11.3.2: If the wrongdoing by a worker is grievous or malicious, dismissal may take place with no warning.

This was made by Co49 while we were in elections last year, and I honestly don’t know why we didn’t vote on it back then. It keeps our community friendly and allows for some simple rules for our members to follow.

Section 12: Profile notifications
12.1: Shops have complete control over whether they receive a profile comment for important events.
12.1.1: Getting notifications is completely optional and will not affect a shop’s status as a member.
12.2: During elections and crucial votes all representatives and shops will be notified regardless of whether they choose to have notifications or not.
12.3: These notifications will be sent out by members.
12.4: Random numbers to avoid spam must be used.
12.5: A message at the end of each notification will be left giving people the option to opt out immediately.
12.5.1: If this happens the person supplying the notifications must notify hellounicorns2 of the username of the person opting out.

Idek why you wouldn’t want this, profile comments are completely optional except for major votes. I just think that simple things like this should still be listed in the rules.

If anyone could send out a message to these people saying:
Hi! On behalf of the SPA, I would like to inform you of a vote occurring soon on Sections 11, 12 and some minor additions to section 2.

It isn’t requires to send out the profile comment, but it is strongly recommended that you vote. If you want a summary of the laws

Shops get to have members of their shops vote in elections
Shops should be harsh on staff or steal from other shops
People can get profile comments for stuff if they want. However, in some small occasions everyone will receive a comment.

When the vote happens on the weekend you can vote against/for all of these.

A lot of new posts so I'm replying to several things so this will be kinda(really) long.

Also, on the issue of the president not having enough roles, I’m considering giving the job of choosing featured shops etc. and adding shops to our members list to the president’s roles. Also, if anyone would be interested in making the laws more formal, exact and third person then they are free to help with that as I began it but decided it would be a good idea to leave that to our members (I’m totally not too lazy).

I went through the laws and changed them to 3rd person.

laws wrote:

Section 1: Shop/Representative Powers
1.1: Members can leave at any time, regardless of the situation
1.2: Shops can appoint a listed amount of representatives
1.3: Representatives can vote in all elections
1.3.1: Representatives can only represent a single shop once. If shops don’t have enough members those spots will not be counted and will be left vacant.
1.3.2: Representatives of multiple shops may only vote on behalf of one shop.
1.4: You can list with any other federations or shop associations without our approval
1.5: You can apply for any vacant position
1.5.1: You MUST accept if you don’t receive a position and must not get angry
1.6: You can ask for a judicial review on any position
1.6.1: If you feel you have been fired unfairly you can ask for 2 judicial reviews, after which you will be banned from the organisation
Section 2: Shop/Representative requirements
2.1: You must never act to ruin our reputation
2.2: The SPA DOES allow offtopic but please don’t use too many posts when doing so
2.3: You must always follow our rules. If you don’t agree with any of our rules then tell us what you don’t like

This was made by Co49 while we were in elections last year, and I honestly don’t know why we didn’t vote on it back then. It keeps our community friendly and allows for some simple rules for our members to follow.

Thanks, and scratch on!
I disagree with 11.3.1. (Not sure if I'm supposed to be saying that here right now, so sorry if I'm not) I think that it should depend on the shop's rules. If they say they give warnings than they definitely shouldn't stop for something minor. If they specifically say no warnings in their rules I think that their members know that. (But if that does end up being the rules, the shop should decide what classifies as “minor.”) Again, so sorry if that doesn't belong here!

Also, since we're going to have a vote soon, I have an idea. I think that the SPA should give a weekly or fortnightly or monthly bump to all member shops as a benefit. I got the idea when my shop got one from LotusLavendar that was for the SPA benefits. I would be willing to give shops these bumps.

Section 13: Member Benefits
13.1: All member shops will get a weekly (or fortnightly or monthly) bump as a benefit of the SPA
13.2: A member (or several; if several than each person will be given a list of shops it is their job to bump) will be appointed to give these bumps.
13.2.1: If this member is on leave the president will give these bumps or another member of the SPA will be temporarily appointed.
13.2.2: If this member fails to give bumps twice a new member will be appointed to do this job
13.2.3: This member cannot be revoked of any other position for failing to give bumps to shops
Thoughts on this?


Thanks for reading all of this.
