my apologies for not having followed the process.... I'll do my best
to read up on how to follow it properly, and then give it another go.
The page basically just suggested that WMAU should allow registration,
and therefore editing, by anyone so minded - part of my rationale is
that we have a bit of a problem with engagement and participation -
hence asking for folk currently disengaged, and non-participative to
pipe up mightn't be the only way forward ;-)
The bottom line is essentially one of principle, and our current
(apparent) position does continue to surprise (and yeah - amuse a wee
bit) - meanwhile, as I said, I'll redo my homework on how to do a
proposal and avoid page deletion.....
