I like the proposal of a "resolution centre" in the first instance then escalated to the CC if needed. It is also a good thing to see that deleting posts will be frond upon, but is there a link to the forum guidelines? I think a link to the guidelines needs to be placed in the top or bottom banner so it is easily accessible for all, but other then that I am happy with this outcome. I hope they choose to base the new guidelines off the Ubuntu CoC and use the CoC as a fall back in the wording of them.
I still maintain my position that the forum administrators need to be an official team, and that at least the core people responsible for the forums need to have at least signed the CoC. I would also like to see the forums moved to an open source solution (but I understand the difficulties in doing such a thing), and I would like to see forums.ubuntu.com pointing to the forums.
