Subject:   Re: [GlobalRevolutionMedia] #Vote - Quorum and voting procedure

from experience of working with large groups, we found that a 75%

majority is a good number which doesn't slow the process too much but

allows for flexible decision making. however, it's good to set a

minimum number of participants. of course, if only a few people are

there and there is an urgent decision to make, then it's up to those

present to make the call.

you can post all the polls online and get most people to vote this way.
