Proposal: Proposal Points

reached quorum, final vote 9-0—Yoda

Adminned at 17 Nov 2008 07:28:16 UTC

Add a new subrule to the Rule entitled “The Plot”.  Call it “Indirect Influence” and give it the following text:

Whenever a Proposal becomes enacted, the enacting admin shall note the number of comments containing votes on that proposal which also contain the word “Epic” (if any).  If that number is greater than or equal to two-thirds of Quorum, the Character who made that Proposal gains 1 PP.

Are all references to votes equal to valid votes by default?

Aemos:

for No, only the last vote is valid

Gnauga:

The only thing that concerns me is that it says the number of votes, not necessarily valid votes. You can never be too careful with loopholes.

@Gnauga: Each Character can only have one vote on a proposal.  As per Rule 1.5, “If a Character uses more than one Voting Icon in comments on a Pending Proposal, his Vote is the last voting icon he uses”.

I think Gnauga’s concern is valid (no pun intended), but Bucky brings up a good point: technically, votes and valid votes are, in fact, the same thing.

for Quorum reached!

Actually, maybe not. Aemos appears to be idle.

Whatever. It’s been reached now for

Oze:

Afraid not. Your addition to the game raised quorum to 9. 1 more active Character needs to vote FOR.

The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy.

Yoda:

Actually, by my count (not counting Aemos) there are 9 valid for votes.
