Proposal: Picking Up the Pace

Add a sub-rule to the rule In or Out? entitled Voting Out:

Once per week, and not more often that once every 72 hours, any contestant may make a post saying that they are commencing a Vote Out. Any and all other Contestants may comment on a post containing the name of one other contestant. Voting ends when at least a Quorum of Contestants have commented on that post. Whichever Contestant’s name appears most frequently in the text of the comments when voting concludes becomes an Outsider.

against Ok, I like the concept of a Vote Out, but here’s the issue:

1. We already have Votes, as tracked in the GNDT. We might as well just count those at a certain time, and send Out whoever has the most Votes.

2. The way your Vote Out works, many Contestants would be disenfranchised. That is to say, if 7 Voted for Kevan and 5 Voted for Bucky, then Kevan would be immediately Out, before the other 11 Contestants had their say in the matter.

against We already have a system for voting people out. This one probably is actually better (and would have worked well with “grudges”), but having two vote-out systems operating at once seems a bit confusing.

against “Whichever Contestant’s name appears most frequently in the text of the comments when voting concludes”

If a contestant says Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan Kevan, then all of those would be counted.  It would end up being a nightmare for whoever tries to resolve it due to people writing names hundreds of times.

Also, do we really want Outsiders being able to vote?

veto self-killed. Voting events are fine; but we should try to fit them within the existing framework, both to reduce the chance of bugs, and so that future changes in the voting rules will affect all types of voting out.
