Proposal: Learning in Pairs

Timed out and passed. josh

Adminned at 24 Nov 2009 11:44:36 UTC

Add a new Rule to the Ruleset.  Call it “The Buddy System” and give it the following text:

Each Apprentice, with the possible exception of the Artisan, shares a table with one other Apprentice.  This is tracked in the Partner column of the GNDT.

If at any time a non-Artisan Apprentice would not have another Apprentice as their Partner, that Apprentice’s Partner becomes the Artisan (if the Artisan doesn’t have a Partner) or the Artisan’s Partner (if the Artisan does have a Partner).  In the latter case, the Artisan ceases to have a Partner.  Either way, that Apprentice’s new Partner’s Partner becomes that Apprentice.

Whenever a Rule causes two different Apprentices to “Become Partners”, each of those two Apprentice’s Partner statistics is set to the other.  Then those Apprentice’s former Partners’ Partner statistics are set to each other.

For each Apprentice in an even-numbered position in the GNDT, set their Partner to the Apprentice below them in the GNDT if possible.  For each Apprentice in an odd-numbered position in the GNDT, set their Partner to the Apprentice above them in the GNDT if possible.  If any Apprentice doesn’t have a Partner afterwards, set their Partner to the Artisan and the Artisan’s Partner to them.

against  Should make it so that their Workbenches always have to be the same.

Unsure about what “shares a table means”.

@Ienpw: nothing currently
@Darth: Definitely not, especially if we’re occasionally changing partners.

@Bucky: But if they share a table, it follows naturally that they should share a Workbench. And perhaps a Ward as well.

@Wak: You vote DEFERENTIAL on a proposal made by the Artisan. Nice.

There’s a wonderful history of ppl voting DEF on such proposals.

@Qwaz: What is it with you and history?

I assume that “table” is just flavor; we’ll find out later what the significance of having a buddy is.
