USURPER! Proposed Rule 319
I shall sing for my dessert. This proposal is as permitted under rule 313.

It's been well over 48 hours.
(It took me that long to read The Two Towers
What with all the songs.)
To keep each turn from running too long
I'd like to propose this:
At 72 hours a turn has been missed.
The next player begins;
We start 48 hours over again;
The player who zoned
Shall be required to atone
By voting "aye"
On the proposal of the next guy.

Proposed Rule 318 -- Sing for Your Dessert
If a rule proposer desires, he or she may declare when proposing a rule that she/he wishes to "Sing for Dessert." The rule proposer will then phrase the proposed rule in verse form. Each voter, when submitting an Aye or Nay vote on this rule, may score the verse on a scale between 0 and 10. The rule proposer will then receive an additional number of points equal to 1/2 the average score received by his/her verse.

Time Keeps on Slipping, Slipping
My apologies, what with the snow and the ice and the no work and the whatnot, I forgot it was my turn.

Here's a rule proposal to encourage point gains from some means other than by voting against a proposed rule.

If a rule proposers wishes, he or she can phrase the proposed rule in verse form. Each voter, when passing the rule may score the verse between 1 and 10. The rule passer will then earn an additional number of points equal to the 1/2 the average score on his/her verse.

What do you think? Should the point award be only to passing rules?

Current Mood: chagrin

I walk the line: rule proposal 317
In the interest of swift gameplay, voting is to be done privately, though not anonymously.

When it comes time to vote on a rule, the person who submitted a rule previous to the current rule proposer shall be designated the ballot tallier. It is the duty of the ballot tallier to tally ballots. During the voting period, players shall submit their votes to the tallier, either privately, via email, or publicly, via LiveJournal comments. At the end of the voting period, or when all players have submitted a vote, whichever comes first or at the tallier's discretion, the vote tallier shall announce publicly via LiveJournal how each player voted, the outcome of the vote, and the updated score list.

If there is a mistake or dispute regarding how a particularly player voted, ordinary means of resolution may be employed, including Judgement. Players are on their honor to honestly represent the facts available to them.

Batterup
I've been thinking that a good thing to do might be to get rid of the point advantages of waiting to vote. I have two ideas I'd like to get some feedback on:

1. Get rid of (or reduce) the point advantage to voting against a successful rule.
2. Instituting some kind of blind voting system (might be tricky; this'd have to be clever).

What do you think?

Proposed Rule 316 Fails
Ninafarina gets 10 points under the current scoring system for the 4 'aye' votes she received (316 - 291 = 25*0.4 = 10), but loses 10 points for proposing a failed rule, so her score remains unchanged. No one else receives any points.

Current scores:

1) datlowen 12
2) fiberpunk 22
3) fidelity_astro 4
4) lester22 14
5) ludickid 23
6) grebby 19
7) ninafarina 3
8) tritium 14
9) xtinkerbelle 24


We move on to Round 3, Turn 8, and it's Tritium's turn to put up a proposition. He has two working days to do so. The Fudge Factor is currently 0, having been reset by the failure of this proposal.

As ever, please check my math.

Current Mood: tired

The Whoa Nelly Act of 2004 -- Rule 316, Open for voting
The Fudge Factor may never accrue beyond a threshold where <2 "yes" votes can pass a proposal.

This rule modifies existing rule 302.

* On passage of this rule, all players with the exception of lester_22 and fidelity_astro earn an additional 5 points as a reward for consistently felicitous gamesmanship.

kind of a small point
Not really directly game related but:


I notice that most people here vote saying either “Aye” or “Nay”

This is not correct.

Generally one votes “Aye” or “No”

OR

“Yea” or “Nay”



but one really oughtn’t mix and match. it’s like, uncultured.

Current Mood: pedantic

Proposed Rule 315 - Please Vote
All players shall be required to vote "yes" or "no" on all proposals.

All votes must be cast within 48 hours of the posting of the final proposal.

Any player who fails to vote on a proposal within the time limit shall lose 5 points.

A player may avoid this penalty by "taking a sabbatical." A sabbatical must last a minimum of 2 turns including the current turn. The player must announce his or her intention to take a sabbatical, and its planned duration, before the posting of the final proposal.

Votes
I move that today be the official end of the "Nomic Holiday Season" and that all votes on the most recent proposal should be made today and that we should move along without any missing votes beginning tomorrow.

With this in mind, I guess I'll post the new scores tomorrow morning, or sooner if possible.

Proposal 314 - UP FOR VOTE!
Thanks, Xtink!

Since I am going on vacation tomorrow and my internet access will be limited, and since there isn't much room for discussion on my proposal, I will simply put it up for a vote now and let the cards fall where they may.

PROPOSITION #314:

Immediately following passage of this rule, Rule #209 shall be eliminated.
