Proposal: Set meta to private, allow people in after two months from expressing interest (with obvious exceptions) (self.metanarchism)
15 ups - 11 downs = 4 votes
Infoshops and other anarchist collectives are often closed and have probationary periods for new members. It is absolutely not unanarchistic, and anyone who thinks so should familiarize themselves with how Anarchists actually organize in meatspace. It is a simple freedom of association. It can remain inclusive, based on a very simple guideline you must show genuine interest in /r/meta and retain that.
Perhaps this is a last ditch appeal to process and trying to make our little student council shit we have here work. This sub demands a very simple remedy to the shitlord subversion that's happened recently.
Nothing else needs to change for now. This is only a solidifying of what we've discussed already, about who gets to vote and when. Obvious exceptions are when people come back (as I did, as skobr did, etc).
There's an obvious question to how people can't appeal their own ban in meta. The simple remedy is state their case in modmail (which can remain public), perhaps when proposing bans, just copypasta the proposal in modmail.
Object all you like, considering the current state of things, I'll be astonished if this passes, but keep telling yourself that what we have at the moment even works.
