Roberts Rules of Order


‘One’ Finger – Start talking on a new subject.

This will start a new speakers list once the current topic has been finished.

ie: currently discussing EngFrosh and want to ask about DUSTED

‘Two’ Fingers – Discuss current point.

This adds you to the current speakers list and you will be called upon when it is your turn.

ie: currently discussing EngFrosh and want to keep talking about EngFrosh

  • .

‘Three’ Fingers – Discussion is circular and should end.

This will tell the chair that no new points are being raised and the discussion should move to a new topic. Alternate rule is the Cutter Hand Wave.

ie: people have said EngFrosh is cool 6 times in a row

‘Middle’ Fingers – You can’t hear the person speaking.

This will tell the chair that you can’t hear the person that is currently talking. They will then be asked to speak up.

ie: someone is mumbling, give them the finger and they should speak up

.‘Pinky’ Finger – Point of Order, Point of Personal Privilege or Point of Information.

May interrupt at any point in time by raising the pinky and yelling the point of *blank* you want to raise. Order is when the chair is not following the proper procedure, Personal Privilege is when you feel insulted or unduly targeted and Information is when you don’t understand something like an short form.

ie: question period or voting isn’t conducted properly, Point of Order

ie: someone writes a pie motion because you’re ugly, Point of Personal Privilege.

ie: you don’t know what CSES stands for, Point of Information to find out.
