there are for voting: we require at least 15 votes and a majority of "yes"
votes. Of course a won voting doesn't make your tag "approved" or used by
the community.

where do you get this from? First time I hear this.

Don't know exacly where I heard that but as Pieren said if the proposal is
good enough you  don't need the votes of the authors. What a shame because
then it would have been a majority (by 1 vote and not counting the
abstains)   but still not approved  ;-)

Anyway : We'll work on a better proposal but it may take some time.
Patience is a vitrue ;-)

Cheers PeeWee32
