Proposal: Release, yet again

Quorumed 14-2-1 -Darth

Adminned at 18 Dec 2009 17:18:31 UTC

Add the following to the end of Rule 2.4, ‘Djinni in a bottle, baby’:

If an Adventurer causes the Djinni to leave the Lamp, and that Adventurer did not last cause the Djinni to enter the Lamp, then that Adventurer may add 1 to his Wishes within 24 hours.

Remove the following text from Rule 2.4:

If anything causes the Djinn to be inside the Lamp, he shall remain there for 24 hours, at which point he shall be outside the Lamp.

If more than half the EVCs on this Proposal contain the phrase ‘three wishes, please’, disregarding capitalization and punctuation, then replace the number 1 in the first block above with the number 3.

Yet again. I’ve made it only one wish, to avoid wish farming via wishing the Djinni in and out of the Lamp. However, I would still prefer 3, for the tradition value if nothing else, and I think the ‘did not last cause the Djinni to enter the Lamp’ clause will prevent wish farming by that method. I’ll leave it up to everyone else.

Three wishes, please.
Just to make it explicit.

against .  As before, I don’t really want a race to see who can be the one to edit the GNDT at 24+.0001 hours.

Bucky: It doesn’t do that.

Why three wishes is too many:
PLAYER A: I wish Player B had whatever you need to release the Djinni from the bottle. I wish the Djinni was in the bottle.
PLAYER B: I release the Djinni from the bottle. I wish Player A had whatever you need to release the Djinni from the bottle. I wish the Djinni was in the bottle.
PLAYER A: I release the Djinni from the bottle.
[Players A and B now each have 4 wishes.]

Stands 8-2-1.

Bucky, what about this rule will make people want to edit at 24+.001 hours? No reason to do that—the only 24-hour number is the time limit for when you can add wishes.

This looks like a wait-another-22-hours proposition. Anyone else to vote for, maybe get quorum?
