I’m not entirely sure what’s going on, but we have 7 CfJs (not counting this one) pending, and no proposals. Clearly some sort of crisis is happening; I’d make this a proposal but I think if we could make proposals some of the CfJs would be proposals.

I doubt any of us want Christmas 2008 to happen all over again, so:
Repeal all dynastic rules. Replace “Critic” with “Emperor” and “Artist” with “Player” throughout the Ruleset. Add a subrule to Rule 1.8 titled “Metadynasties” reading as follows:

Some Dynasties (called Metadynasties) have no Emperor and are named according to the number of Metadynasties of BlogNomic (eg. First Metadynasty). Metadynasties may only be started by a successful Proposal, CfJ, or as allowed by another rule.

When a Metadynasty begins, the previous Dynasty ends and all Dynastic rules are repealed. The theme (and appropriate substitution of keywords) may be chosen by any method deemed necessary.

Because there is no Emperor, DEFERENTIAL votes are counted as explicit votes of abstention and no one may VETO a Proposal.

Start a Metadynasty.

For the benefit of anyone else who’s new to the dynasty - we realised last week that one of the dynastic rules caused all blog posts to be of the official post type “Work of Art”, and rule 3.2 said that CfJs and Proposals “cannot simultaneously be any other type of official post unless otherwise specified by dynastic rules”. Since there was no way for players to make a Proposal that isn’t also a Work of Art, all Proposals became illegal. Purplebeard stepped in through a loophole and made it possible for us to issue CfJs again, and left us to take the next step.

The oldest CfJ explains and fixes this by explicitly saying that Proposals are Works of Art.  You are welcome to vote on this.

arrow for being snobbishly opaque about “Christmas 2008”, while dismissing the crisis of the current playerbase as not even being worth reading.

I should probably mention that the Christmas 2008 crisis was referring to the explosion of CfJs at the end of the Second Dynasty of Yoda - that was much worse than this in terms of CfJ count (most of them spam, including one to end the game entirely, and a DoV posted by the anonymous moniker we had back then), but it seems that what was actually going on wasn’t nearly as bad.

(Oh, and I tried to read the crisis but I found it difficult to understand; it’s not that I didn’t think it was worth reading.)
