Proposal: Clearing Victory

Times out, passes 7-0. Enacted by Personman.

Adminned at 22 Mar 2006 05:28:17 UTC

In Law 1.9, change

If a Gostak believes that e has achieved victory as specified in the current Ruleset, e may Make a Post (http://blognomic.com/update/index.php?C=publish) to the Blognomic frontpage entitled “Declaration of Victory”, and a Hiatus begins. So long as the Hiatus is in effect, the only game actions that may be taken are those covered by laws 1.2, 1.6, and 1.9.

Every Player may respond to the Declaration of Victory saying whether e believes the poster has achieved victory (using the FOR and AGAINST icons). The following stipulations must be true before a DoV may pass or fail.

* 12 hours have passed since the posting of the DoV.

* If less than 24 hours have passed since the posting of the DoV the current Ché-Háme-Háme has voted upon the DoV.

If both of these stipulations are true and at least half of all Gostaks have voted FOR the DoV passes and the poster of the Declaration is considered to have officially won the Dynasty - the Dynasty ends. If both of these stipulations are true and at least half of all Gostaks have voted AGAINST the DoV the the DoV fails. If no clear decision is reached after 24 hours, the Ché-Háme-Háme may optionally Pass or Fail the DoV on his own accord.

Hiatus may not end if either of the following stipulations are false and ends once they are both true:

* There is no active DoV.

* There are no pending CFJs.

If a Gostak believes that e has achieved victory as specified in the current Ruleset and no active DoV has been posted by em, e may Make a Post (http://blognomic.com/update/index.php?C=publish) to the Blognomic frontpage entitled “Declaration of Victory”. As soon as it is posted, a Declaration of Victory (hereafter referred as a DoV) becomes Active and remains so until it passes or fails.

Whenever a DoV becomes active and there is not a Hiatus in effect, a Hiatus begins. So long as a Hiatus is in effect, the only game actions that may be taken are those covered by laws 1.2, 1.6, and 1.9.  A Hiatus may not end if either of the following stipulations are false and ends once they are both true:

* There is no active DoV.

* There are no pending CFJs.

Every Player may respond to an active DoV saying whether e believes the poster has achieved victory or not (using the FOR and AGAINST icons). At least two of the following stipulations must be true before a DoV may pass or fail.


* 12 hours have passed since the posting of that DoV.

* Less than 24 hours have passed since the posting of that DoV and the current Ché-Háme-Háme has voted upon it.

* 24 hours have passed since the posting of that DoV.

If two of these stipulations are true, a Quorum of Gostaks have voted on that DoV and more than half of the Gostaks who have voted on that DoV have voted FOR, it passes, any other active DoV immediately fails and the poster of the passed Declaration is considered to have officially won the Dynasty - the Dynasty ends.

If two of these stipulations are true and at least half of the Gostaks who have voted on a DoV have voted AGAINST or two of these stipulations are true and less than a Quorum of Gostaks have voted on that DoV, that DoV fails.

If no clear decision is reached after 24 hours a DoV has been posted, that DoV fails.

for cheese.  I would, however, like to see the standard “only the most recent vote counts” clause in here, along with changing some of the references of “votes” to “counted votes”.

Well, the current wording doesn’t provide for that, either.
