Speaking of propositions for GA:
If all of the propositions both from clubs and from the Board & Commission would be available for public discussion before those would be put on Agenda we could have saved a lot of time at GA: there would be pretty much no need to discuss and correct things as they would have been discussed and corrected before they would have been put on agenda to vote for.

we could, but I think we need to decide what we will use it for: promotion of shows, discussions about WCF issues, proposals next GA, whatever else people want. This is one of the things that hopefully will come out of this forum.
I would suggest promotion of WCF and WCF Shows as the main purpose of the social pages. Plus we could make separate discussions there when it's needed. And this forum could be used for discussion of the working matters, propositions, etc.

Well, first of all I would propose to post everything from administrators only. That could help to organize and unify the information on this page. Second - I would propose to make a standard of information about the shows to be posted. Right now everyone posts the way the want it and it looks not quite well organized. And the last but not the least - there could be some other information besides the shows: info and announcements from the Board, breeding tips and even cat-news and cat-humor. I believe that could attract more then 1,2 thousands of subscribers then WCF page has now. It could attract even the owners of the cats and cat-lovers from all over the world)

This is very reasonable and we intend to do it. The format is not clear. one way is to have only one "delegate" per full member club have access and then each "delegate" can discuss internally within his club all the issues and the "delegate" can bring forward the arguments of his/her club for or against the proposal . Then we can even simulate GA voting. The other way is to have open access to all WCF members , which might bring a lot more interesting and different viewpoints, but then we would not really know how relevant this would be in terms of a future GA. But I am very very happy that this discussion has started.

Again, very reasonable, but practically we then need first of all one/or more pretty dedicated administrators, hopefully somebody who is both a cat breeder/exhibitor or judge and also preferably a social media specialist (trust me, this is a profession!). The other issue is that we need to finally access the Russian/Ukrainian members, where the market is huge, but we are divided by the language. So should we have a "Russian" official page and a non Russian official page? Should English be the language of the non-Russian page, as its the language of Internet ?
Again ,this discussion proves by itself that the forum is useful !!

Question, why can I not reply on the other topics. (it seem to be locked)
Yes, at this time is locked. As was announced "Forum structure and Rules are discussable", so all forums will be open for members regarding the roles( main club, judges, etc...)
Probably it's good idea to open new topic "Questions about WCF Forum"
We need the rules and we need the moderators for the beginning.

5. Implementation of „national judges“ for the first 2 years respectively for judges without knowledge of foreign languages

I must admit that I do not understand point 5, as a "judge without knowledge of foreign languages" should not be able to pass either the Preliminary Examination nor the final examination as a judge
Point 5 is especially for Russian judges))) It was offered by Litvina.

It doesn't really matter who proposed it , it is now a WCF rule. And there is no country singled out in the rules , so it applies to Russia as well as Sweden or Romania

First of all, congratulations with realization of very bright idea! Well done!

as already mentioned, we have a lot Russian and non-English speaking breeders in WCF. Maybe we need to consider to make some non-English parts of forum, where people can ask questions in other language and still receive answers, which are not rumors, but true statements.

Let's start from English, maybe later, when all rules and structures will be done, we can add some languages.
