Proposal: Fixes

Reached quorum of FOR votes (12-2) - Devenger

Change the first sentence in the dynastic rule Continuity to the following:

If any Scripter feels that one or more Scenes in a non-Finished Act contradict a non-cut Scene in a Finished Act, or contradict an earlier non-cut Scene in the same Act, he or she may call a halt to the scripting process by posting a comment on that Act that starts with an AGAINST icon, and the word “CONTINUITY!” in capital letters.

Change the last sentence in the dynastic rule Continuity to the following:

If the Producer disagrees, then the Scripter who raised the objection is snubbed - if they had a Scene in this Act, they lose all of the bodies they gained from it; if they didn’t, they may not gain Bodies from any scene they add to this Act.

Wow.  Just…wow.  Fixing problems pointed out.  Cut scenes don’t matter anymore.  Snubbed scenes are not removed anymore.

for Although Cutting the snubbed scene was useful for taking the contradiction out of the script. Maybe the Producer should get to reword the scene when he snubs it.

for Though this runs the danger of chain continuity issues in certain circumstances.

Actually, this is too dangerous right now.  against until someone proposes a fix to the continuity problems this would undoubtedly cause.

The snubbed scene does not need to be cut because it’s not the one creating the discontinuity.  The snubbed scene is just the scene created by the scripter who called out the discontinuity.

Qwaz, how would this cause more continuity issues than the rule currently causes? We can always call a continuity error on anything, snubbed or not.

*sigh* Both ways are pretty bad. I wish someone would propose a good one, but I don’t have time. imperial

against  This seems somewhat unreasonable on the scripter who called the continuity, even if they are then revealed to be mistaken.

Psycho: This is actually less of a punishment than what is currently in effect.  This removes the requirement that the scripter’s scene be cut.
