An August solution
Delete all dynastic rules from the ruleset.
Declare the winner of the current dynasty to be 75th trombone, for his continual support of Blognomic; however, 75th trombone will not become the Phil, make an Ascension Address, nor start a new Dynasty.
Start a new dynasty: The Augustinian Dynasty of Qwazukee and arthexis. This Dynasty will not count against the numbering scheme of the Dynasties unless there is a second Dynasty with the same Augusti.
Rename Bill Murrays to ‘Citizens’
Rename Weatherteam to Quorum
Rename Phil to Augustus. The plural of Augustus is Augusti.
Add the following Rule:
For the duration of this Dynasty there may be more than one Augustus. A proposal is vetoed iff all Augustsi vote to veto it. Votes of :imperial: count as if all Augusti have voted , if they have all voted :against:, and as explicit abstentions if they have all voted and neither of the prior conditions holds.
Qwazukee and arthexis become Augusti.
For those that don’t know 75th trombone pays the bills for Blognomic. Plus I love it when someone idle wins.
This proposal will hopefully help Qwazukee and arthexis settle their differences, or at least have a giant power struggle that will amuse the rest of us. The name comes from Augustus Caesar, of roman fame, after whom the system of Emperors was later named: at many points in history the system was set up to include two joint Augusti whose responsibilities overlapped.
