The Imperial Senate was a SDN usergroup of some of the respected debaters who regularly posted on the board and contributed to discussions. The Imperial Senate subforum was where Senators discussed and voted on board policy. Moderators and Admins were considered a part of the Senate.


The Imperial Senate was an experiment in board democracy. Potential members were nominated and voted into the Senator position.

The Senate discussed board policy based on their own concerns as well as concerns that had been brought to their attention by other board members. They also voted on changes to board policy.

In addition, the Senate handled discussion of and, if necessary, voting on punishment for board members who committed infractions on the rules.


Senators were allowed to edit their own posts, regardless of the normal editing restrictions on some of the subforums. As respected members, they were expected not to abuse this power.
