One thing I think we can all agree on is that this community sucks at treating arguments properly.
The common format is that there's a problem, a confrontation happens, other people jump in, other non-related things get brought into the discussion, everyone starts making long posts to address things, everyone agrees but not really, more arguing, snarky snide comments get upvoted, people start going "WHY IS EVERYONE FIGHTING COME ON CUT IT OUT" and then nothing gets done because no one has any idea what's going on anymore.
That gets nowhere. So, I'm proposing a group be made to address debates. Call it a Council.
This Council would not create set rules, but they would settle debates with decisions. Sort of like how the Supreme Court works. When an argument is had, the Council steps in to mediate between the two, and make sure the best possible solution for both parties is made.
For example, if a Lore debate is started ("AKALI WOULD TOTALLY DO THIS" "NO WAY AKALI WOULD TOTALLY DO THIS"), the Council is the ones that argue among themselves. They work with both arguing parties, map out every possible lore direction, explain to both parties what the other party wants, what they should and probably shouldn't do, and guide the two parties to a direction that both can agree with. Then that direction happens, and people are happy.
If a person debate is started, the Council is the one that talks with the two parties, the problem person and the ones that have a problem, and figure out what's wrong, what needs to be said, what should be improved, and make sure that no hostile distractions are being thrown around.
This way, the entire community doesn't have to jump into every single problem, and make everything confusing to navigate through in an argument. Instead of the entire community arguing about something, the Council argues about it instead.
Debates would happen in-client usually, unless otherwise needed. The Council would make decisions that are correct, and decisions that the community can trust is correct. However, in order for this to work, the Community needs to trust the Council, and respect and follow decisions made by the Council. The community would need to trust that people who decide to just completely ignore the council, aren't very useful themselves either.
Of course, the Council would be run by people the community absolutely trusts and respect. People who have proven they know how to see things from all perspectives and can find the right answer to any problem. People on Old Anivia's level.
For now, before these people can be found, however, I'd like to ask whether the community would like this to happen. It would mean giving up the Anarchy that we currently have, yes, but it would also help get so much done so much more quickly. The most important requirement however is that the Community allows this.
So, I ask you guys. Would you like something like this?
