TME:Executive Committee

From The Multilingual Encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Executive Committee is one of The Multilingual Encyclopedia committee's and is charged with the performance of executive tasks and acts as a source of arbitration and conciliation during the conflict resolution. The committee is similar in many regards to the Arbitration Committee on Wikimedia, however, tasks are not just limited to arbitration. The Executive Committee has the final say in almost all matters on the wiki, unless otherwise stated by the Code of Conduct Commission, which is a global commission on Miraheze that enforces the Code of Conduct.

While the name suggests that this committee is only open to administration, this is inherently not true and goes against TME's policy of fostering community cohesion. There is a mix of community members, administrators and bureaucrats; this ensures the committee is fair and just in all its decisions. You can view membership requirements section to see what is required to be admitted on to the Executive Committee.
