FIRST, that in Article 19, the words and punctuation '— unlike good Mary-Sues, which is a contradiction in terms' be struck from the record.
SECOND, that a new Article be introduced, directly following Article 5, and referenced as Article 6, all further numbers being adjusted to follow.
THIRD, that the text of the new Article be as follows: 'The PPC as a community is responsible for upholding the Constitution. If you see someone breaking any of the rules and guidelines herein, please ask them to stop - nicely: remember Article 4 - and explain why. If this doesn't resolve the situation, you will be backed up - and if it continues, a persistant rule-breaker is likely to be shunned or asked to leave the Board. (If you're being accused of breaking a rule, take a step back - Article 3 - and, if you are in the wrong, stop, apologise, and move on. Grudges are no fun!)'
FOURTH, that the following text be added to current Article 18, after 'one floating around': 'In accordance with Article 6, if someone breaks this guideline a few times, be nice! You may have seen it a hundred times before, but they probably haven't.'
FIFTH, that the Wiki links at 'plagiarise' (Article 22) and 'Trolls' (Article 23) be removed, and parenthetical definitions be inserted in their place; OR that said definitions be added in addition to the Wiki links.
SIXTH, that pie be distributed to all ratifiers, provided they purchase it themselves from the store of their choice.

And I would be prepared to sign it, however there is one passage which causes me some concern, and that is the exact wording of Point 19. It may just be that the term Mary Sue means different things... more
Well, although I understand and possibly agree with your concern, I'd like to find a better solution than linking to the Wiki - taking a semi-permanent document that's supposed to be Written In...... more
Yeah, I see your point, and I think I can see good reasons both For and Against linking to the Wiki. Now that I've thought about it some more, I think that I would actually be Against putting the... more
Maybe if someone breaks a rule, they could be excluded from certain events? For example: Sweater Guy gets upset with Crab Fish because Crab Fish is being rude. Sweater Guy starts being rude back,... more
One episode may not warrant a punishment but if the person is a repeat offender and will not listen to people when they try to correct them, there should be some sort of punishment involved, at least ... more
I'd like it set out that it is expected and encouraged that members of the community should speak up if someone is breaking a rule, and not leave it for "someone else" (which has tended to mean PGs... more
