Delphi and Dotmocracy and other processes?[edit]

Delphi method & Dotmocracy are two examples of prescribed group decision making processes that incorporate some form of voting, but also require other steps. Should these be listed as processes on this page, or do they just fall under voting? I would argue they are worth specifying, considering that consensus decision-making could also be considered a form of 'voting to accept' an idea - but really the value in consensus is in the dedication to dialogue and deliberation before the "vote". --Jason Diceman (talk) 06:15, 17 February 2011 (UTC)


Is "Dictatorship" really a formal group decision making system? -- (talk) 23:38, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

No it's not. The group is not making the decision. I have removed "Dictatorship". --Jason Diceman (talk) 05:57, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Overlap between participation articles[edit]

I was looking at the articles on participation, and I noticed that they are not very coordinated and they overlap quite a bit. I'm starting a discussion about this at Talk:Participation#Overlap_between_participation_articles. Any help is appreciated! MakeBelieveMonster (talk) 16:28, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
