Many meta posts put forth proposals that get discussed and then abandoned. as reviewed in this question. The StackExchange process assumes that there is a sufficiently large community to drive crowd-based decision making. Until we can reach that level of activity, we need a way to push proposals forward for the good of the site.
CogSci, for the time being, requires an explicit decision process that moderators and active Meta users alike will agree to, regardless of how many that may be. Any decisions made according to this process, including future changes to the decision process itself, MUST be followed and enforced in good faith by the active Meta community--and, failing that, by the moderators, for the good of the site.
On 23/06/2016 and with the support of the moderators, the decision process with the most votes becomes the official CogSci community decision process, and can only be changed again after 23/12/2016. All votes must be public, unambiguous and made via comment. All comments on answers to this question must be votes.
