Proposal: Please ignore all previous directives regarding promotion and demotion.

Times out 7-6. Enacted. - lilomar

Adminned at 04 Aug 2010 03:36:29 UTC

Remove the sentence “Citizens of ULTRAVIOLET Clearance may change the Clearance Level of any rule of Clearance Violet or lower by making a Story Post stating their intention to do so.” from the rule “Information Clearance”.

Create a subrule to the rule “Clearance Levels”, call it “ProDemote”, give it the text

To Promote is to raise the clearance level of a Citizen or a Rule, and to Demote is to lower the Clearance Level of a Citizen or a Rule.

* Citizens of ULTRAVIOLET Clearance may Promote to any Clearance and may Demote from VIOLET or lower Clearance.
* Citizens of VIOLET Clearance may Promote to INDIGO or lower Clearance and may Demote from INDIGO or lower Clearance.
* Citizens of INDIGO Clearance may Promote to GREEN or lower Clearance and may Demote from BLUE or lower Clearance.
* Citizens of BLUE Clearance may Promote to ORANGE Clearance and may Demote from GREEN or lower Clearance.
* Citizens of GREEN Clearance may Demote from RED Clearance.

In order to Promote or Demote, a Citizen must make a Story Post describing the Promotion or Demotion. If they are below INDIGO clearance, they must include a reason for the Promotion(s) and/or Demotion(s) in the Story Post. More than one Promotion and/or more than one Demotion may be described in a single Story Post.

Climbing the ladder, finally.

against .  I feel rather strongly that no level besides ULTRAVIOLET should be able to demote from the rung immediately below it.

The only clearance besides ULTRAVIOLET which can do this here is VIOLET, which is only one step away from being a high-programmer. VIOLET is the highest clearance you can achieve, while still being a part of the day-to-day citizenry of Alpha Complex.

I have the same objection as before. What’s to prevent the first person to, say, green from simply demoting everyone else to infrared? against

Princerepulsive, I think that the High-Programmer would send the officer in question to join everyone else in infrared.

CoV against  again.  After closer examination, my original complaint holds; BLUE, INDIGO and VIOLET can all demote from the rung immediately below them.

Bucky, that is right, for some reason when I made my previous statement I was thinking that there was a color between blue and indigo.

CoV for again. I CoVed to AGAINST, because this will introduce some chaotic.

Well, chaotic does not need to be bad. ;)

against for reasons already explained. I don’t think anyone should have direct control over Citizens’ Clearance.
