Suspension

Whenever a council is suspended and unsuspended, it is numbered a new council.

Council of Administration

In the event a majority of the COA agree upon a suspension, the COA is suspended. During this period, the Head Bureaucrat is given expanded duties.

The Head Bureaucrat is capable of;

  • Altering and adding rules.
  • Implementing new policies/features/functions.
  • Suspend the COTP with the intent of reforms.
    • This cannot last more than a month, and is nullified if no changes are implemented in 1 week.

However, the Head Bureaucrat is given the following restrictions;

  • The inability to alter their abilities and restrictions without council approval.
  • Adding or changing more than 5 rules/policies per-a-month.
  • The Head Bureaucrat must start a thread each month highlighting all changes so COA members can see.

At anytime, any COA member can call for the COA to be unsuspended, but it must pass with a majority. Upon a new member joining the COA, a vote is automatically called.

If a vote is called for unsuspension, with a main reason being recent changes by the Head Bureaucrat, all changes are put on hold until after the vote. If the COA remains suspended, the changes will go into effect.

During COA suspension, the COTP does not have to be suspended and will propose it's passing votes to the Head Bureaucrat to implement. If it is not accepted, the COTP can request by majority that the COA be temporarily unsuspended solely to vote on the single issue.

In the event of no members besides the Head Bureaucrat remaining on the council, it is automatically suspended. It will be re-established upon a new member joining.

During this time the Head Bureaucrat is given some lessened restrictions;

  • Instead of 5 changes per-a-month, they shall be permitted 10.
  • A thread is not required, unless there is still a Head Helper (as to keep the COTP informed).
  • If the COTP is still operating, the Head Bureaucrat must have their approval before changing abilities and restrictions.
  • The Head Bureaucrat is not allowed to suspend the COTP if there are no other members of the COA.
    • Any suspensions previously in-place are cancelled, re-instating the COTP, unless there are no members.

In the event the COTP is no-longer operating, the Head Bureaucrat is given further lessening of restrictions;

  • They are permitted 20 changes per-a-month.
  • No thread is required, but can be continued for public information or record keeping.
  • Any changes to their abilities and restrictions must be put to public vote.
  • They are required to do monthly staff wanted threads.

Council of the People

The Council of Administration is able to suspend the Council of the People for up to 2 months if it is determined the council has a serious issue. This must be decided by a majority of the Council of Administration.

Other

Status Quo Policy

Any policies that were enforced but never written down before the councils were founded and not addressed either during or after formation shall remain status quo and act as official policies.

All status quos are to be documented on Yandere Simulator Wiki:Councils/StatusQuos. It should be noted that not all status quos are known, and should be added upon them being found.

After full documentation, the status quo will eventually be discussed by the COA, however more urgent matters may supersede them. The process can be sped up by the COTP voting on the issue and sending it to the COA.
