Going Idle

Life is doing weird things at the moment and does not leave much time for nomicking. Quorum remains a healthy 6.

Proposal: Market Cap

In Rule 2.8 £100 Profit, after “every other Seller”, insert

or is at least $150

right now, we need to get $162 to win, and that number could get bigger. This might be more achievable.

Flea Market: Rock-Ola 443 Jukebox (10.17.37)

Buy this.

Proposal: He’s dead, Jim!

Self-Killed. -RaichuKFM

Adminned at 19 Aug 2014 08:24:15 UTC

Remove the subsection “IRC Channel” from the sidebar on the blog.

I’m pretty sure it’s dead anyways.

Flea Market: Windsurfing (28.45.69)

I have no idea how I managed to fit this in my attic, but I certainly don’t want it anymore.

Flea Market: Bond - ($25)

Selling my ill-gotten gains.

For the record, before enacting “Rock Bottom” I lowered my profit to -$79 by taking advantage of the two loopholes left in the way the -$50 limit was implemented. One was by Searching my attic with -$49 Profit (Setting me at -$54), The other was by buying this bond, which had no such restrictions, lowering me to -$79. Then I enacted “Rock Bottom” and bumped my Profit back up to -$50, per the first line in that rule, for a net gain of -$29. Of course, I’m still at negative Profit, due to obsessively gambling on the Properties category.

Proposal: Rock Bottom

Reached Quorum 6-0. Enacted by lilomar.

Set any Profit that is less than -50 to -50.

In the rule “Profit”, replace:~

Profit is measured in Pounds, is an integer, may be negative, and defaults to zero.

with:~

Profit is measured in Pounds, is an integer, may be negative, defaults to zero, and may not be less than -50. Neither the Broker, nor any Seller may perform any action that would change a Seller’s Profit to be less than -50.

From the rule “Second-Hand Goods” remove:~

and a Profit no lower than £-50

From the rule “Flea Market” remove:~

A Seller’s Offer may not be more than £50 higher than their Profit, at the time the Offer is made.

Just noticed that this restriction seems to be in place, but it has to be dealt with in every rule that reduces profit. I like tidy rules. Only real change is that Offers that would reduce your profit to less than -50 can now be made, they just cannot be accepted.

Proposal: Changing your Offer

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

In the rule “Flea Market”, after “... and add the relevant Good into the Offer-maker’s possession,” add

If a Seller has made multiple Offers on a single Flea Market post, only the most recent one can be Accepted.

If someone for example writes $50 instead of $5, then there should be a way for them to fix that mistake.

Flea Market: Rock-Ola 443 Jukebox (10.17.37)

It plays lots of great music!

Proposal: Sold Here Today

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

In the rule “Flea Market”, replace “An Experienced Seller may take a Good to the Flea Market” with:-

As a daily action, an Experienced Seller may take a Good to the Flea Market

And remove “The Broker may not make an Offer on a Flea Market post that is less than 24 hours old.” and “A Seller may not make a Flea Market post if they already have one to which the Broker has not responded.”

Keeping the daily limit but removing the 24 hours of nothing. This makes the unresponded clause more or less redundant.

Proposal: Death to Pennies

Fewer than a quorum of Sellers are not voting AGAINST. Failed by Kevan.

In Rule 2.4 Flea Market, replace “A Seller’s Offer may not be more than £50 higher than their Profit, at the time the Offer is made” with

“A Seller’s Offer may not be more than £50 higher than their Profit, at the time the Offer is made, and must be an integer”

Now that profits “must be integers”, this solves a teensy problem.

Flea Market: Hypno-Gymno (28.16.27)

Hopefully you find some worth in this here hypnotic home gymnasium, or else I can’t afford to walk upstairs to my attic and look for more stuff.

Flea Market: Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Share Certificate (9.5.50)

It’s a thing.

Honestly, I have absolutely no idea what this is. Besides, I just picked it up at my attic.
