> My vote is +1.
We should keep in mind that Charter Members are different from Members. Even if it may be difficult to reach the 50% threshold as the community is becoming bigger, it make sense to make sure they are recognized by at least a relevant part of the community. So, I suppose that 1/4 of the community should be enough to ensure the quality of the elected Charter Members.
I keep my +1 vote for this motion as I think that the threshold of 50% is better than the one set to 5% as it gives to Charter Members more value.
I do appreciate the Vasile plan to solve this, which follow the Mike’s idea (shared by Bart) of having this discussion with the community to gather more informations. We may go a bit further, ideally we should ask directly the community to vote on this but time is probably too short for this election.
We can simply all vote on this motion for this year, then plan another vote involving Charter Member for the next year.
