Proposal: Abandon Shell!

Enacted 6-0. Josh

Adminned at 15 Dec 2020 13:17:37 UTC

Add a new subrule to the rule “Pilots and Shells”. Call it “Emergency Shutdown” and give it the following text:

As a weekly action, a Jockeying Pilot may perform an Emergency Shutdown. When they do, they immediately become Recovering and cease to have a Shell. This does not cause their Shell to be destroyed.

I see a lot of Pilots reluctant to commit to the Mark I Shell. I think the option to occasionally leave their Shell voluntarily would encourage them to join the action.

Note that lendunistus was idled for inactivity about five minutes before casting that vote. Lendunistus, you can fix that by requesting to be unidled.

Note that lendunistus was unidled by request about five minutes after casting that vote.

Since “A Pilot’s Vote on a Votable Matter is the last valid voting icon that they have used in any comment on that Votable Matter”, the vote is still effective.
