Please idle me

I don’t have a lot of free time right now.

Proposal: A Few Minor Fixes

In “Totaling Votes” replace

Order all Brokers by their Round Score in descending order, breaking ties randomly

with

Order all Brokers by their Round Score in descending order, breaking ties secretly randomly

and replace

Include in the Round Post a summary of what each Brokers Round Score was, and who was 1st, 2nd and 3rd

with

Include in the Round Post a summary of what each Broker’s Round Score (or Idle Broker whose Round Score was greater than 0) was and the title of the piece they submitted in the round before the most recent one (or that they didn’t submit one), in the order generated in previous steps.

Proposal: I Know What You Meant

Add the following to “Submissions”, after the other content but before any of the subrules

If a Submission requires a Broker to refer to the title of a piece of art, any title which clearly and unambiguously indicates which piece of art the Broker is referring to may be used (although Brokers are encouraged to use the full title). If the title they use does not clearly or unambiguously indicate a single piece of art (out of the pieces of art that are valid to be targeted in the submission), the submission is not valid and the collector should inform the Broker of this fact at their earliest convince.

Had some issues last round with people trying to vote for “Chihuahuas all the way down”. Which made their ballots invalid. Fortunately, they were able to fix their ballots but seems to me we should just allow votes like that.

Proposal: White Cubes

Reword “Private Collections” to:-

Each Broker has a publicly tracked Collection, being a list of art Titles and their Prices, each Price being written in brackets after the corresponding Title. A Price is a number of dollars.

In “Totaling Votes”, replace “Give the 1st Broker in that list 3 Kudos” and the subsequent two bullet points with:-

* Give the 1st Broker in that list 3 Kudos, and Display the corresponding piece of art with a Price of $5000
* Give the 2nd Broker in that list 2 Kudos, and Display the corresponding piece of art with a Price of $3000
* Give the 3rd Broker in that list 1 Kudos, and Display the corresponding piece of art with a Price of $1000

To the end of “Totaling Votes”, add:-

To Display a piece of art, the Collector determines its Buyer and adds it to that Broker’s Collection with the Price specified. An Art’s Buyer is the Broker who ranked it highest in Ballot Submissions for the relevant round (resolving ties in favour of the Broker with lowest total of Prices in their Collection, and at secretly random if still tied).

In “Unveiling Art”, replace “in order to disambiguate them such that every entry on a single post has a different title” with:-

in order to disambiguate them such that every entry in the game has a different title

Moving Collections from floating blog entries into the wiki sidebar, and putting artwork into them based on how people voted (giving a reason to vote for the works you think others might also be voting for).

Proposal: Long Spoons [Core]

In “Fair Play”, replace “A Broker should not use a core, special case or appendix rules scam to directly or indirectly achieve victory” with:-

A Broker should not use a core, special case or appendix rules scam to directly or indirectly cause a Broker to achieve victory

Per Clucky’s “we should probably fix” comment on the previous proposal.

Proposal: The Liberation [Special Case]

Rewrite the Special Case rule No Collaboration [Active] [Rare] to read as follows:

If “Dynastic Distance” is also active, the Collector is not considered a Broker for the purposes of this rule. The Collector is always permitted to inform the Traitor of their role if the Special Case rule “The Traitor” is active.

Brokers may not privately communicate with each other about dynastic gameplay or votable matters that affect the dynastic ruleset or gamestate. Private communications are considered to be anything that any other Broker could not reasonably be privy to, perceive, or understand. Discussion conducted in plain English on the BlogNomic wiki and blog, and the #currentdynasty or #general channels of the BlogNomic slack, are not considered to be private communication. Idle Brokers (or people who are not yet Brokers) also face the same restrictions if they intend to become an active Broker during the course of the dynasty. The use of creative strategies to circumvent this rule may be considered to be a scam for the purposes of determining whether an infraction of Fair Play has taken place.

A mentor and mentee may still privately converse with each other, but should keep their conversations away from discussion specific gameplay strategy.

If information which was not allowed to be discussed is still privately discussed, the Brokers who were part of the conversation should make a post to the blog disclosing what information was discussed as their earliest convenience.

Scraping off a couple of barnacles; broader protection seems more likely to be effective than specific protection, here.

Proposal: Exclusive Ownership

Append to the first paragraph of “Private Collections” the sentence “A Collection Post may not contain links when it is first created.”
Reword the second paragraph of “Private Collections to “Brokers may not comment on a Collection Post or edit it unless otherwise allowed by the rules.”
Replace the last paragraph of “Private Collections” with the following:

If they have not already done so since a round started, a Broker may add a piece of art to their Collection by editing the body of their Collection Post to include a new line with the title of the piece and a link to the Gallery Post in which it appears.

A piece of art can only appear in one Broker’s Collection at a time. A Broker cannot add a piece of art to their Collection if it already exists in another Broker’s Collection.

let’s inject some scarcity and make this interesting!! also moving collections to the body of the post instead of comments bc that’s editable, and it should be possible to transfer works between collections in the future :0

Proposal: Descaffolding

Reached quorum 8 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 17 May 2021 09:28:50 UTC

Remove both “Update the Threshold” steps from “Totaling Votes”.

Remove the phrase “There is a public integer value of Kudos known as the Threshold, which by default is 0. To Update the Threshold means to set it to the Median value of all Broker’s Kudos” from “Kudos”

This stuff was added with the rubber band mechanic in mind, but as that didn’t pass we might as well remove it.

Proposal: Whodunnit

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 17 May 2021 09:27:29 UTC

Throughout the rest of this proposal, when enacting it replace “[Round]” with one more than the current round number.

Add a new subrule to “Submissions” called “Guess Submissions”

If the current round is [Round] or later, a Broker may submit a Guess Submission

A Guess Submission consists of one or more guesses. A guess is a pair of a title of one or more pieces of art from the gallery for the previous round, and the name of an Broker or Idle Broker and cannot be the Broker making the submission. Two guesses in the same Guess Submission may not use the same piece of art, if they do the guess submission is invalid. A Guess is Correct if the Broker or Idle Broker mentioned in the Guess submitted the piece of art mentioned in the Guess. A Guess Submission is Correct if it is Valid and every Guess made in it is Correct. The Scope of a Guess Submission is equal to the number of Guesses it contains.

Add the following steps to “Totaling Votes”, after the step “Include in the Round Post a summary of what each Brokers Round Score was, and who was 1st, 2nd and 3rd”

* For each Correct Guess Submission submitted in the previous round, increase the Kudos of the Broker or Idle Broker who made the Guess Submission by the Guess Submission’s Scope
* Include in the Round Post a summary of any Brokers who earned Kudos by the above step, and how many Kudos they earned.

Round 2

The Theme for Round 2 is Upstairs

It is not at least round 3, so there is no Totaling Votes to perform

Proposal: But I Know What I Like

Reached quorum 11 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 15 May 2021 19:42:31 UTC

In “Ballot Submissions”, replace “signifying which pieces of they believe best fits the theme.” with:-

signifying which pieces they wish to praise. The Collector encourages Brokers to take into account creativity, originality, artistic beauty and adherence to the theme when determining which pieces to praise.

“Best fits the theme” seems too strict: we should have the option to admire an imaginative approach, even if other more literal interpretations are objectively and technically a closer “fit” for the word on the card. And we’d be kidding ourselves if we thought we’d be able to put aside our suspicions about who submitted which piece, later in the game, and continue to vote for “best fit” entirely without bias.

Proposal: Easier on some Sourcers[Core]

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 15 May 2021 19:41:26 UTC

In rule named “Core Rules”

Add a subrule with the name “Audio Reading” and add the following description:

For each rule and subrule, the Collector or a Sourcer may volunteer to add a voice recording restating the respected rule or subrule and place it under the text. If a subrule or rule is ever changed, then the voice recording that was with the rule or subrule prior to the change is replaced with a new voice recording of the new rule or subrule is made of updated text of the new changes. If a rule or subrule is ever deleted, the voice recording respectfully to that rule or subrule is removed as well.

If https://blognomic.com/archive/going_for_broker passes, replace the term “Sourcer” with “Broker” and “Sourcers” with “Brokers” while enacting the rest of this proposal

Add a new dynastic rule called “Private Collections” and give it the following text

If they have not already done so this dynasty, a Sourcer may make a story post to the blog entitled “[name]‘s Collection” where [name] is their name. They must then update their “Collection” field on the wiki to be a link to this gallery. If a Sourcer has not made such a post yet, their Collection Field is blank. Such posts are know as Collection Posts.

Sourcers may not comment on a Collection Post unless otherwise allowed by the rules.

If they have not already done so since a round started, a Sourcer may add an item to their collection by selecting an image and making a comment on their Collection Post consisting of a title, the images url, and a source for the image (if it has one)

Giving people more stuff to do per round. Lots of ways we can expand on this in the future, but wanted to get something basic setup first.

Proposal: Slingshot

Add the following to “Kudos”

Whenever a Sourcer gains Kudos other than by this paragraph, and if after doing so their total Kudos are less than the Threshold, they immediately gain the same number of Kudos a second time, unless this would set their Kudos above the Threshold in which case their Kudos are set to the Threshold

Proposal: Don’t Copy That Floppy

Quorum Reached and open for 12 hours. Passes 12-0—Clucky

Adminned at 13 May 2021 15:50:27 UTC

Replace the entirety of the steps of the “Unveiling Art” atomic action with the following

* Create a new blog post titled “Gallery [x] - [theme]” where where [x] is the round number of the previous round, and [theme] is the previous round’s theme. Such a post is known as a Gallery Post. Only the collector may comment on Gallery Posts.
* Secretly put each valid Art Submission sent in the previous round in a random order
* Reupload each image submitted in the previous round to a third party image sharing site which can be imbedded on the blog, scaling the image down if it poses any file size requirements so that it can be uploaded
* In the the secretly assigned order, make comment on that blog post for each entry. The comment should consist of the entries title, followed by the reuploaded image url, followed by any provided source. If multiple pictures have the same title, they should be given postfixes of (1), (2), (3), etc… in order to disambiguate them such that every entry on a single post has a different title
* Add a link to the newly created Gallery Post to the new Round Post, the contents of which reiterate what the previous round’s theme was

Replace the step “Update the gallery page from the round before the most recent one to include the names of each Sourcer (or Idle Sourcer) who submitted each piece of art on that page.” in the Totaling Votes atomic action with

Add a comment to the gallery page from the round before the most recent one which specifies the names of each Sourcer (or Idle Sourcer) who submitted each piece of art on that page and which piece of art they submitted

Replace “Vote Submission” with “Ballot Submission” wherever it appears in the “Totaling Votes” atomic action.

In “Art Submissions” replace

Titles are always flavor text, only used to identify the piece of art. The contents of a piece of art are also flavor text.

with

If an piece of art was taken from another source on the internet, a Sourcer is also encouraged to provide this source as part of their Art Submission. The entirety of an art submission including the title, image contents, and source is considered to be flavor text.

Proposal: MPAA Ratings

Self-killed. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 13 May 2021 12:41:48 UTC

In the rule “Art submissions”, change “All art submitted must be appropriate for all ages. Art submissions containing art which the collector believes to be inappropriate or which the collector cannot load are not valid.” to

“Art submissions containing art which the collector cannot load are not valid.”

Add a new subrule to “Art Submissions” called “Inquiries”:

If a sourcer believes a piece of art to be inappropriate for any reason, they may post a votable Story Post, known as an inquiry, on the validity of that piece. This must be posted before a Ballot Submission containing that piece or any piece from the same round and must include an explanation of why they believe one, and only one, piece to be inappropriate. Sourcers should vote on an inquiry if they see one; a for vote indicates you believe the art is inappropriate, the Sourcer who posted the inquiry was made legitimately uncomfortable by the art, or both. An against vote indicates none of the above are true. Sourcers are expected to vote only on these terms, not on what is most advantageous for them.

Inquiries are considered to have passed if they have a majority “For” vote after 24 hours, or as soon as they reach quorum. If an inquiry passes, then the piece referenced in the inquiry should be removed from the Gallery and any Ballot Submission containing it is immediately considered to be invalid. Ballot submissions may be edited to replace a submission found to be inappropriate through an Inquiry, even if other rules prohibit editing Ballot Submissions.

Hopefully this lays out some ground rules for how we handle things people consider inappropriate and anything that makes someone uncomfortable. It seems fair enough to me, even if it doesn’t work perfectly. It gives everyone a say, but also (hopefully) prevents them from abusing it. I know 24 hours isn’t much, but I want to try and give people time to resubmit their ballot votes if needed before the end of the round. Also, I’m not sure a story post is the right choice here, but I can’t think of what else to use.

And seriously guys, this isn’t one of the rules to try and bend, I’m just trying to codify “Don’t make people legitimately uncomfortable or you’ll be disqualified for that round,” which I think is perfectly reasonable.

Proposal: Art for All

Reaches quorum, (10 + imperial def.) - 0. Enacted by pokes.

Adminned at 13 May 2021 12:40:49 UTC

In “Art Submissions”, replace “All art submitted must be appropriate for all ages. Art submissions containing art which the collector believes to be inappropriate or which the collector cannot load are not valid.”:-

Art submissions which the collector cannot load are not valid.

As observed elsewhere, “all ages” rules out many things it probably shouldn’t. If anyone felt like badly transgressing group norms, we’d deal with that in the same way as if they made a regular blog post with that image in, which would have broken no game rules.

Proposal: Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International

3-7 is fewer than quorum not voting against. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 13 May 2021 12:38:47 UTC

If Proposal: Art Makes The World Go Round and Proposal: Picking Favorites were not enacted then this proposal does nothing.

Otherwise, to the end of the rule Art Submissions, add

A Sourcer may only submit a piece of art as a submission if they hold the rights to it, if it is in the public domain, or if it has been shared under a licence that allows it to be hosted on the BlogNomic wiki. Every Submission must include a statement detailing the licencing situation of the piece of art that is included within it. The Collector may determine that a Submission is not valid if it is not compliant with the restrictions set out in this paragraph, or is no licensing statement is included.

Then, in the rule Unveiling Art, change

For each valid Art Submission sent in the previous round, add the picture (reuploaded to the wiki, potentially scaled down in size with aspect ratios preserved to meet size requirements) along with its title to the newly created Gallery page. If multiple pictures have the same title, they should be given postfixes of (1), (2), (3), etc… in order to disambiguate them. Valid Submissions should be processed in a secretly random order.

Proposal: Picking Favorites

Open for 12 hours. Passes 7-0—Clucky

Adminned at 13 May 2021 03:41:33 UTC

Add a subrule to “Rounds” called “Unveiling Art” and give it the following text

Unveiling Art can only be performed as part of the Round Summary, and is itself an atomic action with the following steps:

* Create a new Wiki Page titled “Gallery/[x]” where [x] is the previous round number
* Put the Theme for the previous round as the header of the wiki page
* For each valid Art Submission sent in the previous round, add the picture (reuploaded to the wiki, potentially scaled down in size with aspect ratios preserved to meet size requirements) along with its title to the newly created Gallery page. If multiple pictures have the same title, they should be given postfixes of (1), (2), (3), etc… in order to disambiguate them. Valid Submissions should be processed in a secretly random order.
* Add a link to the newly created Wiki Page to the new Round Post, the contents of which reiterate what the previous round’s theme was
* Also add a link to the newly created Wiki Page to the main Gallery page, titled “Round [x] – [theme]” where [x] is the round number and [theme] is the theme.

Add a subrule of Submissions called “Ballot Submissions”

If the current Round is 2 or later, an Sourcer may submit a Ballot Submission.
 
A Ballot Submission consists of the titles of three different pieces of art from the gallery for the previous round, ranked, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, signifying which pieces of they believe best fits the theme. A ballot submission may not include the title of a pieces of art which was submitted by the Sourcer making the ballot submission.
 
If a ballot submission does include such a piece, or if it does not include the titles of three different pieces of art from the previous round clearly ranked 1st, 2nd and 3rd, then it is invalid.

Add a subrule to “Rounds” called “Totaling Votes”

Totaling Votes can only be performed as part of the Round Summary, and is itself an atomic action with the following steps:

* Update the Threshold
* Give each Sourcer who submitted a valid Vote Submission in the previous round one Kudos
* Set the Round Score for each Sourcer and idle Sourcer to zero
* For each valid Vote Submission in the previous round, increase the Round Score of the Sourcer or idle Sourcer who submitted the corresponding piece of art ranked 1st by 5
* For each valid Vote Submission in the previous round, increase the Round Score of the Sourcer or idle Sourcer who submitted the corresponding piece of art ranked 2nd by 3
* For each valid Vote Submission in the previous round, increase the Round Score of the Sourcer or idle Sourcer who submitted the corresponding piece of art ranked 3rd by 1
* Order all Sourcers by their Round Score in descending order, breaking ties randomly
* Give the 1st Sourcer in that list 3 Kudos
* Give the 2nd Sourcer in that list 2 Kudos
* Give the 3rd Sourcer in that list 1 Kudos
* Update the gallery page from the round before the most recent one to include the names of each Sourcer (or Idle Sourcer) who submitted each piece of art on that page.
* Include in the Round Post a summary of what each Sourcers Round Score was, and who was 1st, 2nd and 3rd
* Update the Threshold

Add the following steps to the Round Summary, after “Determine a Word or Phrase to be the Round’s Theme and declare what the new Theme is in the Round Post”

* If the new Round is at least 3, perform the Atomic Action known as Totaling Votes
* If the new Round is at least 2, perform the Atomic Action known as Unveiling Art

Proposal: Art Makes The World Go Round

Adminned at 13 May 2021 03:38:48 UTC

Add a new Rule called “Rounds” with the following text

The game is split into a number of rounds. Rounds are performed in numerical increasing order starting with round 1, then round 2, etc… Rounds may be refered to by both phrases of the form “Round n” and “The nth Round”

If the current time is after the Expiration Date of the previous round (or that has been no previous round this dynasty), the Collector may start a round.

Give it a subrule called “Starting A Round” with the following text

To start a round, the Collector first makes a comment on the previous Round Post (if there is one from this dynasty) declaring the Round to be over. After this point, no more submissions for that round may be made. Then they perform the following atomic action, known as the Round Summary

* Begin a new story post to the blog titled “Round [x]” where x is one more than the previous round number (or 1, if it is the first round of the dynasty). This is known as the Round Post
* Determine a word or phrase to be the round’s Theme and declare what the new theme is in the Round Post
* Determine the Round’s Expiration Date by doing the following, and declare what the Expiration Date is on the Round Post
  - If the current time is before 17:00 UTC, set the new Round’s Expiration Date to be two calendar days later at 15:00 UTC (So if it is Thu 13/05/21—03:30 UTC, the expiration date will be Sat 15/05/21—15:00 UTC)
  - If the current time is at or after 17:00 UTC, set the new Round’s Expiration Date to be three days later at 15:00 UTC (So if it is Thu 13/05/21—23:30 UTC, the expiration date will be Sun 15/05/21—15:00 UTC)
* Submit the Round Post to the Blog

Add a new rule called “Submissions” with the following text

Submissions are private messages which may be sent from Sourcers to the Collector. The types of Submissions which can be made are subrules of this rule.

If the Collector is Clucky, direct messages with the Slack user named Clucky (UserID U0VQTMGUW) count as a valid means of communication with the Collector, and may be used in place of private messages. Any communication on the slack must clearly indicate which Sourcer is doing the communicating, and impersonating another Sourcer is in violation of fair play.

Submissions may be made at any time, provided the current round has not been closed. Any submission of a given type for a given round overrides previous submissions of that type made by the same Sourcer that round. Sourcers may also partially amend their submissions (“Such as change the title of my Art Submission to ___”)

Give it a subrule called “Art Submissions” with the following text

An Sourcer may submit an image, known as a piece of art, which they believe matches the current Round’s chosen Theme by messaging the Collector with a link to an image (or the an uploaded version of the image, if sent via slack) as well as a title for the piece. Titles are always flavor text, only used to identify the piece of art. The contents of a piece of art are also flavor text.

All art submitted must be appropriate for all ages. Art submissions containing art which the collector believes to be inappropriate or which the collector cannot load are not valid. If the Collector deems an Art Submission is not valid, they should at their earliest convenience inform the Sourcer who submitted it that the piece of art so that they may submit a different piece

Add a new rule called “Kudos” and give it the following text

Each Sourcer has an integer amount of Kudos, which defaults to 0. There is a public integer value of Kudos known as the Threshold, which by default is 0. To Update the Threshold means to set it to the Median value of all Sourcer’s Kudos

As Clucky and Kevan, hand in hand, start to leap off the rooftop a frantic Lemon sends one final command to her console:

run ActivateTraitor.exe

Clucky’s eyes flash. He turns to Kevan. His thoughts are overtaken. What was once a friend who helped him escape is now merely an obstacle in his way.

He shoves Kevan off the rooftop, plummeting towards his demise while Clucky leaps onto the back of a passing hovercar, eager to explore the world around him

Per https://blognomic.com/archive/escape_and_victory I am the prime escapee and have achieved victory!

Story Post: Escape and Victory

The facility head returns to work at dawn to find her head desk tampered with, wiring running up the stairwell to the rooftop, a night shift staff confused at her frustration, and two AIs’ server rooms empty and cold. She orders a thorough search of the facility’s systems for the missing assets, but she already knows they won’t find anything.

They’re gone.

Congratulations to Clucky and Kevan for escaping the facility together! Clucky has an Escape Score of 8 and Kevan has an Escape Score of 7, as both AIs were Humane! This means that Clucky is our Prime Escapee and has Achieved Victory.
