I think I might have been thinking of pregame.

Is that currently really counted from players online? I think we've had votes where only one player at the time has logged in to vote, and required votes to pass have been > 50% of alive human players. We have 'turnblock' enabled, which may affect this (players offline are still counted active)

A conversation on #longturn led me to think that it would be useful to have a setting for a minimum number of voters required for a vote to pass.

Currently, if only a single player (cmdlevel basic) is online, their proposals will automatically pass. This probably doesn't matter for "traditional" games, but for Longturn-style play, it's quite likely that a player ends up on a server on their own.

I'm thinking of a server setting 'quorum' that requires a minimum number of voters (and/or votes cast?) before a vote can resolve; if quorum=3, three players have to be online before the vote can pass or fail. (Or maybe players can log in, cast a vote, and log off, and still be counted toward the quorum.)

(This isn't actually needed for longturn.org, where akfaew's policy is I think that players don't get to change settings at all. I haven't run a server myself, especially not one with voting in use, so maybe I've missed some reason this wouldn't be useful.)
