New guild policy will be drafted by the guild leader in accordance with guild values and existing policies and with the input of the council.
If it becomes necessary to adapt guild policy, the guild leader will draft an updated policy in accordance with guild values and existing policies and with the input of the council.
The guild leader will announce new and updated policies on the guild forums. Guild members will be offered the opportunity to give feedback. During the discussion period, the guild leader may make changes to the policy based on member feedback and in accordance with guild values and existing policies. Once the discussion period is closed, the new policy will be enacted.
Changes to guild policy may be initiated by guild members at any time. The first step is to talk with the guild leader or a council member regarding the idea; the idea may be implemented using the above process. If the idea is not implemented using the above process, a
guild vote can be initiated to determine whether the policy should be changed. The vote will require a 30% quorum and 60% majority to pass.
If the vote determines the policy should change, a committee of the member(s) initiating the change, other interested guild members, the council, and the guild leader will be formed to draft an updated policy. The initiating member(s) may opt to task the guild leader with drafting the policy instead of convening a committee, and the guild leader may opt to draft the policy if the committee reaches a stalemate.
Once the new policy has been drafted, a guild vote will be held to determine whether the new policy will be adopted. The vote must have a quorum of 60% and a majority of 75% to pass.
If the vote does not pass, feedback regarding the policy will be solicited by the committee and/or guild leader as appropriate, and the policy will be re-drafted and voted on a second time.
If the vote does not pass a second time, the guild leader and council have the option of drafting a policy in accordance with guild values, existing policies, and member feedback or of repeating the re-draft and re-vote process.
