Great piece of legislation, I don't understand why anyone would vote against this.

I support this bill in general, however I would like to see open sharing limited to purely legislation polls, excluding elections, nominations, and bills on VC procedure, because those bills are seen as confusing and oftentimes annoying for non-VC members that do not understand our process

Yeah in the bill it only says legislation polls.

Bills on VC procedure should also be excluded from open sharing

Woah...people are starting to embrace my idea of sharing? I was a lunatic for suggesting such a thing a few months ago.

Zackisan that's a good idea. Political what do you think about that?

Yeah I don't think the Hot List helped this poll.

I'm fine with it. I'm fine with no legislation on the hot list. I'm excited about getting back to legislation polls where we were getting 100+ comments. That was fun!

Was the valid ID law posted? I'm just curious. Are there two bills that have not been posting? I'm just trying to judge how soon we will be in need of legislation.

AN ACT TO SUPPORT SUBSTANTIAL GROWTH IN VIRTUALCONGRESS MEMBERSHIP THROUGH CLARIFYING AND REFORMING RULES REGARDING LEGISLATION POLL EXPOSURE TO NON-MEMBERS.

Whereas up-voting legislation polls to the "Hot List" and sharing them with a person's followers has become viewed as violating VirtualCongress rules and looked down upon.

Whereas it can be found that the ability for legislation polls to be up-voted onto the "Hot List" and be shared by current VirtualCongress members helps increase membership in the VirtualCongress by spreading awareness of what the VirtualCongress is.

Whereas the purpose of the VirtualCongress is to create debate and conversation through proposing and voting on legislation.

CLARIFICATIONS:
(1) Up-voting legislation polls does not violate VirtualCongress rules.
(2) Clicking "Share With Followers" on a legislation poll does not violate VirtualCongress rules.
(3) Scheduled VirtualCongress polls with the purpose of being shared to recruit new members is not needed because of the ability to up-vote and share legislation polls.
