Proposal: On an unrelated topic

quorum vs 1 = passed- Darknight

Adminned at 18 Sep 2008 07:23:49 UTC

On a previous, but recent, dynasty we had a similar issue than the one we had on this one, people using DoVs to stall the game, sometimes to gain an edge, sometimes just for the heck of it. On a previous dynasty we decided that the problem was not so serious, but now we are seeing it happen it again. I am against bannings and restricting users, but perhaps there should be a small cooldown after a failed DoV to prevent people from pulling out this trick too often and making us resort to constant CfJ to fix it.  Thus, I propose:

Add the following text after the last sentence of Core Rule, “1.9 Victory and Ascension”:

When a DoV is failed, if it has a number of AGAINST votes that exceed Quorum, the ‘’‘Candidate’‘’ who posted it cannot make another DoV until after 120 hours (5 days) have passed since the time their DoV was failed.

Hopefully Darknight will allow this Proposal to continue on into his Dynasty. Also, just to make my position clear: I do not wish to penalize players for making a failed DoV but rather allowing a 5 day window for needed proposals or legit DoVs to take place before one is allowed to repost a DoV and mess with timings and stall important proposals.

for .  This also fixes a lingering issue where a player can stall indefinitely by posting a DoV every 12 hours.

I just don’t see the point. It doesn’t stop someone from just delaying the game for the heck of it, and if someone wants to repeatedly delay the game, which hasn’t happened yet, we would just kick em from the game.
