Initial proposal records that are poorly formed will be moved here.

Moving Forward on Obscenity

Summary: Our family-friendliness policy, as written, is unclear, and should be rewritten. Furthermore, we should move away from trying to self-censor, and work on setting CZ up so that schools, libraries and parents can filter content they find objectionable.
Original proposer: Brian P. Long 07:25, 25 April 2008 (CDT) Next step: Fill in next step
Driver: Driver needed (i.e., someone familiar with the proposals system who will move it through the system) To be done by: Fill in target date for next step
Notes: Also see 'Moving Forward on Obscenity', http://forum.citizendium.org/index.php/topic,1640.0.html on the forums for more discussion about this issue.
Discarded because it is not a specific proposal

CZ: Revert, Block, Ignore

Summary: A vandal reversion policy that's easier for Wikipedians to adapt to.
Original proposer: --Greg Pass 06:10, 16 April 2008 (CDT) Next step: Initiate
Driver: Driver needed (i.e., someone familiar with the proposals system who will move it through the system) To be done by: August 31
Notes: Might be tough for the first couple of weeks as we adapt.

We have no vandals. Why do we need this policy? --Larry Sanger 17:18, 13 May 2008 (CDT)
Discarded because there is no proposal page -- Proposals Manager

To the proposer: please read the proposals system policy page if you want to fill out a complete proposal, not just this summary. If you don't, please ask around for someone (a "driver") to take over your proposal!

Technical Consolidation

Summary: Instead of having the forums, individual pages, the tools mailing list, and the bugs email, all technical aspects and issues dealing with the wiki could be moved over to CZ:Technical Team.
Original proposer: --Robert W King 14:59, 7 March 2008 (CST) Next step: Community Discussion
Driver: Robert To be done by: 21 March 2008

CZ Community pages should be revised for simplicity

Summary: Part of what is keeping our "elitism shield" up is that many (if not all) of the community pages are overly complex in terms of what they describe. A campaign to heavily review and edit the pages will give us leaner, easy-to-comprehend documentation and improve our external appearance.
Original proposer: --Robert W King 18:29, 12 February 2008 (CST) Next step: Discussion of pages to improve

Merge Help:Contents and CZ:Home

Summary: Help:Contents links to similar material as CZ:Home does, but is less well organized and less complete. I propose that these pages be merged.
Original proposer: Warren Schudy 20:44, 15 February 2008 (CST) Next step: Get community input
Driver: Warren Schudy To be done by: February 20
Notes: Previously proposed on Help talk:Contents, but no responses. If someone else wants to be the driver for this, feel free to do so.

Capitalization of CZ namespace articles

Summary: The CZ:Naming Conventions article indicates that all articles' titles should be lower-case except for words ordinarily capitalized in sentences. Unfortunately, the majority of the articles linked from CZ:Home have all major words capitalized (title case). We should move all articles in the CZ namespace to follow our naming conventions.
Original proposer: Warren Schudy 13:33, 23 February 2008 (CST) Next step: Public comment
Driver: Warren Schudy To be done by: Feb 26
Notes: Previously discussed on the forums.
