Not sure. I thought I read somewhere that they could vote on 5 members at a time... but I might be wrong. I applied yesterday, but have not been notified as to whether I am currently undergoing "upgrade review" for the ORG. It's kind of nerve wracking... as an academic, I never expected to have to go through a tenure process on my internet baseball forum!
Still, I applaud the change. It's a bold revision, but one that might pay big dividends for the site quality in the future. Although I didn't join the site in time to benefit from the early years of posting after the Griffey trade, I understand why older members may have been discouraged by the upswell of chaos and trash talking in both the ORG and RL.
My only frustration is that as an unwitting product of the "new" (more snarky and confrontational than desired) RedsZone circa 2006, I may have stepped on some toes that I didn't intend to... oh well, I suppose there's always the chance to reapply after six months if I don't get in right away.
