I have a suggestion regarding procedure so we can move forward. I think that we should split each major topic into separate threads and give it a tangible amount of time (say a week) to assemble the purposes, trough guild members brainstorming, just like we are already doing. After this period is over, someone get all the purposes and create a poll for a few days (say four) so people can vote on the ideas presented. After the voting is over we have a winner idea and move on to the next topic, we could have several topics simultaneously being addressed/voted following a schedule.
This way we know how long the deliberation process will take and have a sure way to please as many members as possible while taking as many ideas as possible.
Right now we seem to be debating a huge range of issues with little order and perspective of resolution
