Re: The Future Section
Count me against a panel. If we're going to have a voting process, and clearly that's the direction the site has decided in favor of, then let's keep it open to all members.
I like the idea, if we're going to segregate the two forums, of deciding who we are going to converse with. I don't like the idea of a select few people deciding that for us.
I strongly oppose the panel. Maybe if we have a panel to make nominations, that would weed out some of the ones that are unlikely to get many yes votes. Then it would cut down on the amount of voting and discussion we have to make. I guess I'd be OK with that.
But give we the people the final vote.
