Proposal: Charters

Self-killed, adminned by Kevan.

Adminned at 11 Mar 2006 15:11:29 UTC

4 Charter pages have been added to the wiki:
First Gostak
Postom & Bankford
GDPDC
EcoDosh

Add a rule, “DPG Charters”:

Each DPG has a Group Charter on the Blognomic wiki.  The text of the Charter of a DPG applies to all Gostaks that belong to that DPG.  A Gostak may not modify any Charter unless it allows em to do so.  The text of a Charter may not change this Ruleset or the Blognomic Gamestate.

If any changes have been made to the Charters between now and when this rule is enacted, undo them.

Please read through the text of the Charters.  They’re versions of the base ruleset modified to work as subgames, basically, with a couple extra changes (DEFERENTIAL votes are removed, timespans are shorter, the definition of quorum has been slightly reworked to avoid a monarchal DPG, etc.)

The text of a Charter may not change the Gamestate?  Why not?  What, then, may they do?

Regulate Gostak behavior.

against I don’t really want a corporation themed metadynasty.

Metadynasties should be quirky, in my opinion.

for I don’t see why metadynasties have to be quirky, wacky, or anything else.

Besides, why can’t we have charters and be quirky?

Metadynasties are one of few chances to go fully strange with rules, since other dynasties are restricted by themes.

for But although the text of a Charter can’t change the Gamestate, nothing restricts it from allowing the Gamestate to be changed.

against S-K, rewording to tighten it up once I get another proposal slot.
