These are Executive Committee proposals that are "finished": they were approved and action on them has, at least, started.

Simplifying and improving CZ guidance pages

Summary: Briefly, we have a logjam. The guidance pages are important and often sensitive, but need simplifying and improving. This intimidates editors (fear of introducing an error). I propose that we have an Approved version of all CZ pages, and a Draft version that is clearly open to all suggestions and contributions. The Approval process should be as that for other articles, except that the relevantly qualified "editors" are the Executive Committee.

Adopt the proposals system

Summary: The Citizendium should adopt the proposals system as current set out on CZ:Proposals and its subpages. We Citizens can and should participate in our own governance. We Citizens often offer ideas for improvements (proposals) and make calls for a decision to be made between definite options (issues). Notice that we do distinguish between proposals and issues, but, below, we'll sometimes use "proposal" to mean "either a proposal or an issue." The proposals system is a single place where Citizens may make proposals and raise issues. If you submit a proposal here, and it gains a champion (a "driver"), you can be sure that the community will respond; your ideas or your question will not simply fall through the cracks. (Read further on CZ:Proposals.)

Notes: And yes...I am using the system to confirm the system...circularity alert! But stand back, I'm an Expert about this. (I wrote my dissertation about an analogous kind of circularity.)
