You said everything but that they are rules. You ask three times for an agreement, then you suggest that these "guidlines" actually become (quote)standards(unquote).
What's more you know damn well that if you point things in a bulleted list a whole bunch of people will refer to them as the rules.
I just one one place that anymonk can point to and say "Last time logging the chatterbox came up everybody decided X".
That's exactly what I'm worried about.
This is a good thread to read as well:
Update: Instead of a "guidelines" with glib comments why don't you make a significant threads list. That way people can read the threads for themselves and see the community in action. You've decided that a guidelines list is the way to go and you're determined to ram it through. I made a perfectly good suggestion that we refer people to threads rather than giving them a list of rules -sorry- guidelines to agree while they are here.
Update II: I guess I'm being unreasonable expecting people to read whole threads. But I'll put any others I find here just in case.
