Second ratification vote for the Revised UCoC Enforcement Guidelines

Hi all,

In mid-January 2023, the revised Enforcement Guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct will undergo a second community-wide ratification vote.

In the first round of voting, held in March 2022, the Enforcement Guidelines were endorsed with almost 57% support. However, as the accompanying comments highlighted some important community concerns, the Board’s Community Affairs Committee requested another review of the flagged issues.

The volunteer-led Revisions Committee reviewed community input and updated areas of concern, such as training and affirmation requirements, privacy and transparency in the process, and readability and translatability of the document itself.

The resulting revised Enforcement Guidelines are now up for the final community vote, which begins on January 17 and closes on January 31.

The following Meta-wiki pages offer more information about the January 17 vote:

We encourage you to start the discussion and post your comments and questions about the vote or about the Enforcement Guidelines.
