Oh. I thought the point of this thread was about discussing and revising those initial posts.

It was, but at some point it get passed up the chain. The topic got pretty heated and nasty so some of the posts got removed, so that's why it may seem a bit confusing.

But we more or less reached a consensus and passed things up the chain. I seem to remember hearing it was approved and seeing it posted, but I might be mistaken.

So no changes were ultimately made after the first few posts? That is disappointing. It did get heated, but good points were still made well in to the discussion. Hopefully your poke will get things moving again, at least.

No, lots of changes were made. Jamie just kept updating the main post, incorporating people's ideas and suggestions as we went along.

The heat was over Wookiee tatas and Albino Wookiees. I was opposed to making any sort of ruling on those issues until someone actually made those costumes.

The problem is that it has been stuck with the Costumes Standards Committee since it was finished, about a year and half now. It's my understanding that a vote by them was going to take place last fall but no word since then.

The real problem is the existence of the Standards Committee itself. It should never have existed in the first place and there were a lot of objections to its creation. The solution is to have the Detachments and their memberships propose, discuss, and vote on the standards in their domain. Most detachments already do this before passing them up to the Committee.

Unfortunately, the only way to change this is to amend the club charter, which is in a massive rewrite with a committee of its own. That rewrite has also been going on for about two years.
