        • Result: YES (unanimous)

      • No liaison for now. Revisit if there is substantial disagreement between players and moderators
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
  • Changes to League structure
    • New tiebreakers

        • Result: NO (2 dissenting)
      • If both players are responsive but mutually unable to schedule, they may mutually agree for a coin flip instead
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
      • If both players are non-responsive, we flip a coin

      • Add the above poll to the returning form?

      • If both players are responsive and available at times but not available at the same time, we flip a coin
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
    • Expand A (or other divisions)
      • Using SamE’s informal discord poll (“Fully-fleshed-out options that have been proposed so far to cover the case of more players returning to a tier than there are spots at that tier and above,” Monday, July 15, 16:13 UTC), moderators voted among themselves between the two most popular options: “1) Expand to however many seven-player divisions are necessary with two demotions. Divisions would stay at 7 until there are fewer returners than leavers,” and “0) Of course, there is also the status quo option of just encouraging these players to return at a lower level.”
        • Result: Option 0 (unanimous)
      • Add the same poll between options 0 and 1 to the returning form?
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
      • Should we hold a Town Hall on division expansion?
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
    • Way for 2nd place to promote
      • Need to see a complete proposal to assess properly.
    • Seeding
      • Proposal: Ask in the returning form about what aspects of the general philosophy of seeding people find relevant
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
      • Poll longer season breaks in the returning form?
        • Result: NO (1 dissenting)
    • Longer/shorter break between seasons
      • Infeasible on the moderator end to shorten it. Will discuss lengths of breaks at a future Town Hall.
  • Changes to matches and games
    • Scheduling issues
      • Encourage people to friend their League opponents on the client in Discord Post 2
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
    • Ban list
      • When the banlist feature comes out, respect banned cards in League matches by default
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
      • Banlist default on the returning form
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
      • Default for current season is to have only Possession banned, but of course players can mutually agree to respect ban lists.
        • Result: YES (1 dissenting)
      • Banlists are not allowed to be changed within a match (except by mutual agreement)
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
      • Once the banlist feature is live, have a Town Hall about it.
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
    • Undo rules
      • Undo rule details should be in the official document

        • Result: YES (unanimous)
      • Reword undo policy to emphasize the default and pre-match discussions
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
  • Changes to moderator technologies
    • Week 2 stats and spreadsheets meeting
      • Will try it out this season.
    • Bots know about scheduled matches (for internal tracking)
      • Will see how difficult this is to implement.
    • Week 7 daily bot messages
      • No change to messaging pattern. All late match communication handled directly by the moderator, not the bot.
  • Changes to moderator responsibilities
    • Increase transparency
      • Several plans already in the works, see later votes.
    • Separation of duties
      • Unclear, will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
    • Conflicts of interest
      • Already minimized. Unclear how they could be further reduced.
    • Selection of new moderators
      • Add a line to the Moderation section that new moderators are chosen by a vote of the previous season's moderator team
        • Result: YES (unanimous)
    • Selection of new administrative moderator
      • Future arrangements might be different from the current one given moderator availability/skills.

      • Result: YES (unanimous)
    • Require the agenda and votes to be recorded in every season going forward (put this in the rules)
      • Result: YES (unanimous)
    • Don't post anything additional about player who were dropped outside their division channel
      • Result: YES (unanimous)

Just chiming in to note one interesting moment I had with Guardian and no attacks. I had the $2/$7 opening with Cursed Gold, and could use a Guardian buy Turn 1 to Donate Turn 2 and pay off all debt right away, leaving 5 coppers, allowing me to Windfall Turn 3.
