i think that my objections are as you describe, as well as the reasons
expressed by shiar and genny. the 24 hour rule is there for a reason -
to allow everyone to participate in decisions about what go up on the
site - and devolving that to another group that hasn't been through
the imc process seems a bit like just giving away the platform that
others have worked hard for. thus, i feel the 24 hour rule should
however, if it is to be removed for one group, i think it should
equally be removed for other groups - especially ones that *have* gone
through the new imc process (in one form or another). it seems that is
a sticking point with other people on this list, so i suspect that we
are not going to get agreement over the list, and this issue may need
to wait until a network meeting.

at the network meeting? although that does, unfortunately, mean
putting it off for a while. so maybe phunkee's suggestion of asking
what schnews think is a good one - and if we do have a trial, it could
be reviewed at the network meeting.
