Transcript Proposed Standing Rules — continued RULE 5: RULE 6: RULE 7: RULE 8: RULE 9: RULE 10: RULE 11: RULE 12: RULE 13: Debate on all motions of less than fifty (50) words shall be limited to six (6) minutes. Debate on all other motions shall be limited to twenty (20) minutes; if a question is divided, these size criteria and time limits shall be applied to each section. Time shall be alloted equally to both sides of a question. Time spent on points of order or other neutral matters arising from a motion shall be charged one half to each side. The Preliminary Business Meeting may alter these limits for a particular motion by a majority vote. Debate on all amendments to main motions shall be limited to five (5) minutes, to be divided as above. An amendment to a main motion may be changed only under those provisions allowing modification through the consent of the maker of the amendment, i.e. second order amendment motions are not allowed. A person speaking to a motion may not immediately offer a motion to close debate or to refer to a committee. Motions to close debate will not be accepted until at least one speaker from each side of the question has been heard, not will they be accepted within one minute of the expiration of the time alloted for debate on that motion. The motion to table shall require a two-thirds vote for adoption. In keeping with the intent of the limitations on debate time, the motion to postpone indefinitely shall not be allowed. A request for a division of the house (an exact count of the voting) will be honored only when requested by at least ten percent (10%) of those present in the house. These Standing Rules, and any others adopted by a Preliminary Business Meeting, may be suspended for an individual item of business by a two-thirds majority vote of those present. The sole purpose of a request for a "point of information" is to ask the Presiding Officer or the Parliamentarian for his opinion of the effect of a motion or for his guidance as to the correct procedure to follow. Attempts to circumvent the rules of debate under the guise of "points of information" or "points of order" will be dealt with as "dilatory motions" as specified in Robert's Rules of Order, Newly Revised. Citations to Articles, Sections, or specific sentences of the Society Constitution are for the sake of easy reference only. They do not form a part of the substantive area of a motion. Correct numeration of Articles and Sections and correct insertions and deletions will be provided by the Secretary of the Business Meeting when the final Constitution as amended is Certified to the next WorldCon. Therefore, motions from the floor to renumber or correct citations will not be in order. The Secretary will also adjust any other Section of the Constitution equally affected by an amendment unless otherwise ordered by the Business Meeting. Any correction of fact to the Minutes or to the Constitution as published should be brought to the attention of the Secretary and to that of the next available Business Meeting as soon as they are discovered. At all sessions of the Business Meeting, the hall will be divided into smoking and non-smoking sections by the Presiding Officer of the Meeting. The motion to adjourn the Main Meeting will be in order at any time after the amendments to the Constitution proposed at the last Worldcon Business Meeting for ratification at the current Business Meeting have been acted upon. In other words, the Business Meeting is not required to finish its entire agenda. The Staff of the Business Meeting shall also serve as official Tellers of the Worldcon site selection ballots. At the end of mail balloting, all site selection ballots received shall be sequestered until the Business Meeting staff can take possession of them; the same shall obtain for those ballots case in person at the current Worldcon. All site selection ballots shall be counted by the Staff of the Business Meeting at their convenience; final certification of the count shall be done in the presence of one witness from each bidding committee who shall be sworn to secrecy with respect to the results of the voting until such time as the results are officially announced at the Site Selection Meeting. If time permits at the Site Selection Meeting, bidders for the convention one year beyond the date of the Worldcon being voted upon will be alloted five (5) minutes each to make such presentations as they may wish. In the event that an Overseas site is selected for any Worldcon, the selection of a site for an interim Continental Convention (sometimes referred to as a NASFiC) will then be in order. Voting for a NASFiC site shall be limited solely to those persons physically present at the Site Selection Meeting. Voting shall be by secret ballot, and the doors of the hall shall be sealed at the beginning of the actual voting with no one permitted to enter or leave until the vote is completed and tallied. Those Committees bidding for a NASFiC shall be alloted five (5) minutes each at the Site Selection Meeting to make their presentations to the electorate. These Standing Rules should be published by each Convention Committee at the same time as the current Constitution and pending amendments for ratification are published; i.e., on or with the Hugo nominations ballot and as part of the Convention Program Book. These Standing Rules shall continue in effect until altered, suspended, or rescinded by the action of any Business Meeting. Amendment, suspension, or rescission of these Standing Rules may be done in the form of a motion from the floor of any Business Meeting made by any member of the Business Meeting, and such action will become effective immediately after the end of the Business Meeting at which it was passed.
