BM is one of those leaders who think creatively and innovatively and is more than pleased to share his thoughts with the community as soon as possible, but many of his proposals were presented to the community outright in the interest of time without going through cross-the-board discussions within the company, thus making the evaluation of impacts impossible with no previous knowledge of the proposals at all. As a result, most of the instructions and explanations seemed behind the time. Indisputably, however, each and every proposal just stands for BM's long-deliberated ideas or motions rather than mandates, and would have to go through the discussion of the community and was subject to the group decision to see whether they should be passed or ruled out, and many of the significant decisions made by the community which were brought to the whole picture by BM, are still sound and sensible today. Notably, every community member has the same right as BM to put forward a proposal for open discussion and decision.
An important fact that is often neglected is that because of the features of BTSX itself, no one in the community (including BM himself) has an absolute say in which proposal or solution to be passed against the will of the community. Any suggestion about the modification to the systematic structure has to gain the majority’s votes to be valid, and representatives to execute those modifications require BTSX holders to authorize the right by voting. Hence, members of the community need not to worry about the pass of an amendment that might cause harm to the community as long as the majority hold on to Nay.
Furthermore, Mr. Bo Shen has done huge amount of ground work in the Chinese community. As much as he helped many translation projects, he has never employed or organized a 30-member translation team as it was suggested. The costs of the so-called translation team are clearly not listed in the open account that has been accessible to anyone in the community since the very beginning. As a matter of fact, in order to maximize results, even sponsorship for the past translation projects is performance-based in order to serve the function of an encouragement and reward. Currently, promotion and communication is still done by our devoted BTSX community voluntarily, and as explained, many of BM’s tentative ideas for the development were not the company’s group decision, nor did he consult Mr. Shen in private, which ideas were simply expressed by BM as a member of the developers and the community. The situation and the spontaneity of BM as an active developer have been known to veteran members of the community but might still come as novel information to some. We would hope that mutual understanding in the community can win over the intuitive response to find someone to blame.
In consideration of the language barrier that has been causing misunderstandings and unnecessary suspicion, under the suggestions of the community, three well-respected and seasoned representatives (麦克猫 Michaelcat，浮壹白 metalallen，深山野猪WildPig) will form a committee to communicate with BM and other representatives from 3I, convey the suggestions from the Chinese community and present authorized response from 3I. They are teaming up today as a committee to represent the Chinese community and any information will only be published after the translation and review of no less than two members of the committee in order to cope with the existing communication barrier. Also, members of the Chinese community can also seek their assistance to express their opinions officially.
Once again，any modification to the systematic structure can only be done when the votes of the majority of BTSX holders are gathered, which makes it important for everyone to be able to present their opinions sufficiently. We seek to fully extend what has always been seen demonstrated in the Chinese community’s active and peaceful participation, and the expression of reasonable and sensible opinions. We believe that ultimately, fully expressed opinions and the vote in everyone’s hand can make better results for BTSX.
