Proposal: A Failure By Any Other Name

Passes with a Quorum of FOR votes (12-1)  -Bucky
You forgot to mention that Kevan gets 10 Points—arth

If the rule “Points” exists, replace “two points each time one of their proposals fails by gaining a number of votes AGAINST equal to or greater than quorum, rather than timing out” with:-

two points each time one of their proposals fails

For simplicity’s sake. Having a proposal fail because it timed out with insufficient support, or because you self-killed your own flawed idea, both seem worthy of a small two-point fine.

for This also removes the option of avoiding a penalty by self-killing when you think a proposal will fail.

Clarification of my vote: it disincentivizes “daring” proposals.

@spike: Not necessarily, because success has a relatively good payoff.

12-1, because Kevan’s vote is automatically FOR.
