Proposals, support counts (I think a button is missing), and the summit - where do we stand?

I have a question for the CSM – I was perusing the Assembly Hall today, trying to get caught up to speed on the current topics and get an idea of what is supported and not supported. I know there is a CSM summit coming up, so I was curious what list of items were on the table.

I noticed in the process that there is no “Support” button visible anywhere on the forums, am I missing something? If indeed there is not support mechanic in place, how is the CSM currently determining what list of items make the summit discussion? Are the old 25% of voter base rules still in effect, or is there a new system for determining how player groups can get their issues on the table with CCP?

It would be great to have a refreshed rundown of how we as players can propose ideas, get the official vote count, and get issues on the table. Currently, when I read the Assembly Hall, I see [Proposal] ‘s all over the place, and several comments, like counts, view counts etc, but no metrics on where votes of support are falling.

Thanks for helping me and others navigate the political landscape here as we continue on towards the exciting Winter Expansion. I appreciate the fine work of the CSM in relentless campaigning for a fantastic set of features, I’d love to know how I can get more involved personally.

The support button was removed since it created the impression that if people rounded up enough votes then CCP and the CSM were under some sort of obligation to act on their ideas. They're not, and this misconception is largely what led to the ineffectiveness of earlier CSMs where items would be voted up and added to a gigantic backlog where they rotted for years without any implementation.
