Proposal: Hell Thaws Out

12-0, timed out. Hell is once again a broiling furnace. -Elias IX

If there is a law entitled “Enactment”, and if it contains the following passage:

If the oldest pending Proposal’s FOR votes exceed or equal Quorum and that Proposal has been open for voting for at least 12 hours, or if it is more than 48 hours old and more than half of its votes are FOR, then any Admin Staff may mark that Proposal as Enacted, then update the Ruleset and/or Gamestate to include the specified effects of that Proposal.

Change the passage to:

If the oldest pending Proposal’s FOR votes exceed or equal Quorum and that Proposal has been open for voting for at least 12 hours, or if it has been open for voting for at least 48 hours and more than half of its votes are FOR, then any Admin Staff may mark that Proposal as Enacted, then update the Ruleset and/or Gamestate to include the specified effects of that Proposal.  Note that proposals are not open for voting during Hiatus.

For consistancy, if the same rule contains the passage:

or if it is more than 48 hours old and half or fewer of its votes are FOR

Change it to:

or if it has been open for voting for at least 48 hours and half or fewer of its votes are FOR

for even though this will make it extremely hard to track when a proposal times out, that’s not my job

I’d give a dairy wheel to anyone who can write a script that closes voting during hiatus.

What do you mean by closing voting? Remove the voting icons? Prevent people from entering the words “for” or “against” in comments? ;)

Hey, that’s not a bad idea…

but I guess I meant stopping the countdown clock.

Seems difficult.

for Shouldn’t be /that/ impossible, since DoVs go in a category..
