Proposal: A One Time Event

1-5. Timed Out.

Adminned at 25 Feb 2007 16:23:22 UTC

I figured we might as well take advantage of what’s happening in the real world.

Change the following text of Rule 2.1 from

Each actor has a Filmography, which is stored in a wiki page called “Filmographies”. This is a list of the films that each Actor has starred in, the year of that film, and the role that they played in it.

Any film listed in a Filmography must exist on IMDB (http://www.imdb.com) and a link should be provided.

Each actor has a Filmography, which is stored in a wiki page called “Filmographies”. This is a list of the films in which the actor has had a role.

Any film listed in a Filmography must exist on IMDB (http://www.imdb.com) and each entry must include the following information:
* The name and year of the film.
* A link to the film’s entry on IMDB.
* The date the film was added to the Filmography (or an asterik if it is a Bonus film).
* Any status effects affecting the film (such as an Acclaimed role).

and the text

Any Actor may add a new film and role to his Filmography, if e has not already done so that day or on any of the previous three days, with the following restrictions:-

to

Any Actor may add a new film and role to his Filmography, if e has not already done so that day or on any of the previous three days, though Bonus films are not affected by and do not count for this restriction.  The following restrictions also apply to all films added to a Filmography:

Add a new rule titled “A One Time Event” with the following text:

Only movies added to an Actor’s filmography before 2007 Feb 27 12:01 A.M. (GMT) count for the purposes of this Rule.

The 79th Academy Awards (hereafter “the AA”) will be held at approximately 1 A.M. on 2007 Feb 27.  For the following category, if an Actor has a role in a film that wins in that category in the AA, e gains 5 Fame.
* Best motion picture of the year

For each winner in the AA of the following categories, if an Actor has a film in eir Filmography that was directed by the winner, or if the winner was part of the cast of a film in the Actor’s filmography, the Actor gains 5 Fame.
* Performance by an actor in a leading role
* Performance by an actor in a supporting role
* Performance by an actress in a leading role
* Performance by an actress in a supporting role
* Achievement in directing

(If it’s not clear, an Actor can only gain 5 Fame per category, and thus the maximum Fame an Actor can gain from this rule is 25).

This Rule shall delete itself at 5 A.M. 2007 Mar 1.

When this proposal passes, each Actor may add 1 Bonus film to eir Filmography.

against fire drill, and because the nominations are already out there, there is such a limited universe of films to choose from.

against I wanted to do something similar, but I don’t think that this is the right way to do it.

against “Any status effects affecting the film”

Status effects, again!  Let’s hope that “A Useless Proposal” doesn’t come to pass, or else there will be a conflict of terminology (in that proposal, “status effects” are something that apply to an Actor, such as Admin, Idle, or Investor Status).
