Proposal: Down By The Old Maelstrom

Reached quorum, 13 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 21 Jan 2009 11:07:51 UTC

[ Seems unnecessary to have a mostly-redundant sticky post at the top of the blog forever. I was going to just move it into the sidebar, since current Rule 2.6 doesn’t specify where the timer should be tracked, but I might as well make it a proposal and tidy it up a bit (it’s currently ambiguous as to whether it’d get decremented on days 2, 4 and 6 of a quiet week, or 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 - “every two consecutive days” gives you plenty of pairs of days). ]

Reword Rule 2.6 (We Will All Fry Together When We Fry) to:-

There exists a time bomb with a timer, which starts at 10 and is tracked in the sidebar. If there have been no new proposals within the past 48 hours, and if the timer has not been decremented in the past 48 hours, any Admin may make a blog post announcing this, and may decrement the timer value.

When the timer reaches 0, all Dynastic rules are repealed and a new metadynasty starts. Every time a DoV passes, the timer goes up by 3.

I still think it should go back to 10. Also, why not make this into a core rule and give it a shorter name?

for I’d rather it not be a core rule for the most part.

for if it ends up working well i think it should go into the core ruleset, but let’s try it out for a while first.

. . . No reason that time during a hiatus shouldn’t count.
