Not exactly, no. It was Blue's idea, which she didn't really flesh out - unless she does so, I'm gonna drop that part of the proposal.
I had envisioned it myself as a repository for evowiki and evowiki-like articles we might want to keep around, as they don't really have any SPOV. But, again, I'm gonna drop it. Just as soon as you all stop ECing me at the bar...
Eh, wait for more people to vote. Maybe there's more support than you think. Don't let the old timers bring you down, me included!
It's not because of who's voting, merely because I can't think of a good response to your criticisms on the vein. It's also confusing the issue somewhat. And again, it was blue's idea, but this is my proposal. :D
Dearest Peter, changing the proposal after the vote has begun is not good, though your intentions were not unsavory.
Bleurgh, and all that... The vote was premature as you said, I come back from doing a podcast interview (if you listen to the Exposing Pseudo Astronomy podcast I'm very sorry) to find a vote up before even I had fully made up my mind. I must admit I panicked slightly...
What would you have me do? If it comes down to it I'd like to take a short wikibreak for the rest of the evening to work on my own blog, but if you want me to reinstate the third thing I will.
Yeah, RW has a voting fetish. I would say we need more time to really hash out in simple terms the purpose and function of the namespace before we take another vote, and I might close the current one due to the rushing and bungling involved. I won't be back for 12 hours at least though, so after I close the vote we could put the thing on hold for now. There's no hurry and I'd like to "flesh out" my conception of the namespace's remit.
Blue's right, that vote was rather rushed. Major things like new namespaces take some time to push through, and there's always a next time.
It's been a few days, and I've voted so as to make the votes even so there is some justification to coming back to the issue. What's the plan?
Regroup; possibly write an essay detailing your opinion; we should write a brief, bullet-point summary of the proposal, including purpose, remit, rules, benefits, etc. I think there's support enough to merit continuing to develop this.
