Proposal: A Division of Power (Part 2)

Times out 5-6. Failed by Brendan.

Adminned at 15 Dec 2021 18:50:38 UTC

If at least 8 of the Effective Votes on this proposal are FOR, then repeal the Perdurable Rule “Imperial Lineage”.

Might as well offer these options separately so they don’t fail together.

I actually really like Imperial Lineage, because it doesn’t just block other people out from winning. It incentivizes them to get better at writing proposals and building support for their rules, as well as creative ways to find loopholes.
The way I see it, Imperial Lineage creates a form of tutorial for new players: they can’t win until they learn how to change the rules and play the game effectively.  against

In my opinion, you shouldn’t have to get literally every active player to agree to change the rules to allow you to win by an intended mechanic (or else convince a quorum to redefine “achieve victory” so that the Imperial Lineage doesn’t do anything).

You’re probably right, but I would be interested to at least see where it goes before we repeal it

How does telling people “you can’t win” incentivize people at getting better at writing proposals?

I’m not a new player. This rule does not incentivize me to do anything other than not play in this dynasty either.
