But we won't have any official public forums. (what > is necessary to determine a public forum? The Administrator declaring it so?) Basically, yeah, per rule 218/0. Worst case: the "Joel is hit by a bus" scenario. Someone assumes the role of Deputy Administrator for the purpose of announcing a new Forum (per rules 218/0 and 219/0). Wheee. The whole issue of a potentially absent Administrator is one that, from my quick survey of the rules, doesn't seem to be addressed. This practically begs for a rule of some sort, but I'm not sure what would be fair. Yeah, if e resigns, that's covered; but what if e is in fact hit by a bus? We should also possibly cover the possibility of a vote of no-confidence. Random aside: No, I don't wish any ill will towards Joel, nor do I believe any of this is actually necessary or appropriate. Except for maybe creating a couple of rules, but that's just because I someday hope to actually score points in the game. :) > I believe that it will be next to impossible to port the web page to > another machine within only a couple of days.

For the most part, it's fairly portable. The tricky bit would be getting hold of the database - otherwise, someone would have to retype every bloody thing, including all rules, proposals, modifications, motions, you get the idea. ...dave ---- David E.
