Proposal: Idle Tactics!

Times out and passes 11-1 -Bucky

Adminned at 03 Jun 2009 18:49:46 UTC

Add a new subrule to the Rule entitled “Voting Events”  Call it “Take it like a man” and give it the following text:

Insiders cannot become Idle if a Voting Event has been started in the past 24 hours.

In the Rule entitled “In or Out”, change the text

legal values are blank, and the names of all non-Host Contestants.

to

legal values are blank, the names of all non-Host Contestants, and the names of Idle Contestants who have become Idle since the last time a Contestant became an Outsider.  If a Contestant’s Vote would ever become illegal, it becomes blank instead.

Add the following text to the end of the Rule entitled “Social Structure”:

If a Contestant becomes Idle, all Insiders who support that Contestant have their Support changed to the Support of the Contestant who became Idle.  If this would cause a Contestant to have an illegal Support statistic, that Contestant’s Support is instead reset to its default value.

The first change prevents a Contestant from hosing someone else by ducking out in the middle of a voting event and back in.  The second solves a problem with idling-induced illegal votes in a way that doesn’t make strategic self-idling directly abuseable.  The last change solves the same problem for Support, but in a way that disrupts the social structure as little as possible.

I’ve fixed the GNDT so that it reflects how things currently work out. That will be simpler once this passes.
