Registering before creating a resolution or amendment is optional. It does, however, allow you to withdraw your motions. You can register on the login page using your email address, by ticking “Create new account”.
Creating a New Resolution
The first set of information you need to enter are the title, text and reason. The title and text will be published if the resolution gets passed. The reason explains why you think the resolution is a good idea and will not be published after a vote at the GA.
You can a apply some (basic) formatting to both the text and the reason. Please check the formatting very carefully if you have copied and pasted a document. We recommend that you past the text without formatting (SHIFT+CTRL+V in Chrome and Firefox) and do the formatting manually afterwards.
Next, you are required to enter your own name (as the person whom we should contact if we have any questions), your organisations name and your email address. You can also change the “I am a…” field to organisation if you prefer that your name will not be published on the website. The pohne number field is optional.
You have the option of adding the names of delegates from other organisations who are supporting the resolution. Both a name and an organisation are required if you want to add supporters.
A click on “Go on” takes you to a confirmation page. Once you click “Confirm” the resolution will be immediately published on the website.
Creating a New Amendment
To create an amendment, you first need to select the document you wish to amend. Afterwards, a click on “Create Amendment” takes you to the amendment form.
In the amendment form you can directly edit the title and text. Changes to the text will be directly shown in red (deletions) and green (additions). If your amendment requires more complex changes, you can use the “Editorial hint” field that can be made visible by clicking on the corresponding link in the top right-hand corner. Please do not use this field for the reason.
Finally, as with resolutions, you are required to add a reason, your name, your organisations name and your email address. You can change the “I am a…” field to “Organisation” if you do not which your name to be published. Your phone number and supporting organisations are optional fields. After a click on “Go on” you will be shown your proposed changes, which will be published immediately once you click confirm.
