Proposal: 33425 happening

Fewer than a quorum not voting AGAINST. Failed 4-7 by Kevan.

Create a new segment with:

* Index: 13
* Name: Happening
* Payout: Gain X Points, where X is ceil[(Number of Amnesiacs who have the segment which appears in the largest number of wagers in their wager)/(Number of Amnesiacs who have Happening in their wager)]
* Global Effect: Roll DICE3. If it is a 1, remove the segment(s) which appears in the largest number of wagers from all wagers. Then, remove the segment(s) from the game. Otherwise, do nothing.

against Removing the segments that are generating the most engagement seems like a not so great idea

against Makes some sense that if one particular segment is a no-brainer we may as well drop it. Am still against fiddly equations, though - if it’s too complicated to express in plain English, it’s too complicated to easily factor into gameplay decisions.

Well, it’s interesting. If too much people selects Happening, it does nothing and can also be removed. So if someone selected Happening, probably wants to remove it… but if he remove it, it gain an advantage to who not removed it.

Probably this will be the first Segment to be removed from the game X-D

against Until we have a method for bringing back segments, we shouldn’t be destroying them.

There are a ton of proposals in the queue right now so I’m hesitant to propose something at this moment, but some kind of self balancing mechanicsm where if no one bids on a wager its payout increases and and if lots of people bid on a wager its payout decreases might be worth exploring

against per Kevan. I know that mathematicians love Nomics but not everyone who loves Nomics is a mathematician, you know?
