Call for Judgment: Uh Oh. This needs to be fixed fast!

Succeeded (7-3) - Devenger

Adminned at 12 May 2009 11:21:13 UTC

Change rule 2.11 (Taking the Initiative) to read:

As a daily Action, a Scripter whose Popularity is higher than that of each other Scripter may steal the Producer’s chair by posting a blog entry to that effect, and reducing their own Popularity by 1.

Upon doing so, that Scripter may consider themselves to be the Producer for the purpose of any Dynastic Rule (except for “Bonus Features”, “Subliminal advertising”, and “The Awkward Aftermath”), for the next hour.

It may not be immediately necessery, but the prospect of a scriptor who has somehow gained popularity stealing the chair, making some bribes, and then closing the bribery stage scares me to no end. Thus, this is a CFJ to ensure that it is passed before there is an oppurtunity for someone to do this.

against .  This will not be an issue since Kevan and Josh are tied for highest popularity.  If one of them goes idle before ‘No work and less pay’ passes, I will change my vote.

for I actually didn’t make a safeguard against this under the premise of rewarding high Popularity, but I may have underestimated how significant a reward it would be after I changed how the bribery phase would operate. Before, end-game sniping would have been much less effective than now.

for Could be far too powerful in the hands of a high-popularity person.
