Going to be out of touch for at least 48 hours or so (sorry, "real" life issues, as well as some badly needed sleep!).
However, as promised, I am opening up this feedback thread first. At the general request, I took it upon myself to come up with those interpretations mostly based upon what we have been discussing again and again in thread -- yet I may well have gone too far, or not far enough, or perhaps in an entirely different direction than what would have been preferred. That, I need to hear from everyone (although I will not be able to act on it or reply for at least 48 hours). I will say that I believe these interpretations to be true to the spirit in which this board was created.
In the meantime, what exists, stands -- and I have complete faith in the current administrators' discretion and judgement in this matter.
Yet I have already had one complaint of disciplinary action taken without warning: odd, since I have not taken any disciplinary action whatsoever against any member.
What I have done thus far is to ban the three specific names which could be confusing:
* Karash Neckroden
* Kyle Atlis
* MH Echellion
To the best of my knowledge, these are not the primary usernames of any current user. There was one possibility for error here: I knew for a fact that the last two were not controlled either by myself or Ecthelion, but do not know who controls the third. In the absence of such knowledge, I decided that no member, equally, should be subject to possible third party postings under a potentially confusing name. If Karash Neckroden indeed belongs to Karash, however, I apologise and ask that an administrator remove the ban.
Finally, I took it upon myself to revoke a privilege, which was overlooked in the first draught of the constitution thread. This has now been corrected. (Sleep!)
That should about cover everything needed of background and explanation. The rest should come from others ...
