Article III Section 1 of the CDS Constitution states:

"The Scientific Council (SC) is a self-selected meritocracy. Its governmental role is to interpret and enforce the constitution. Its service roll (ed. note: sic) is to resolve citizen disputes and moderate user forums and events."

All CDS citizen are entitled to make a petition. The petition must concern themselves directly. They have to use the current notecard to enter the petition. This notecard has to be sent to the SC Dean and to any member of the SC. The petition will be heard in the next meeting of the SC.

Confidentiality
If a citizen is requesting that the petition not be dealt with publicly, they must declare it clearly. The SC has the right to decide that the petition is public. In this case, the citizen can decide to continue or to withdraw.

This in no way limits the actions the SC may take as a body on it's own initiative in accordance with the Constitution and the Laws of the CDS.
