Proposal: About Work The Dancefloor

Withdrawn by author. Failed by TyGuy6.

Adminned at 28 Jan 2022 03:16:14 UTC

From the rule Boring Box Company, remove “The first time a given Employee performs a Weekday action on a given day, each member of their Team receives an increase in Options according the Incentive Formula” and “Each time an Employee performs a Weekday Action, their productivity increases by 1.”

From the rule Departments, remove “The CEO has the sole power to set and/or change an Employee’s department”.

Add the following as a subrule to the rule Departments, called Departmental Actions:

A Departmental Action must be described as being restricted to a single Department. A Departmental Action is a Weekday Action that may only be undertaken by an Employee whose Department is the Department to which that Departmental Action is restricted. An Employee may only carry out one Departmental Action a day, as per the restrictions on Daily Actions.

Whenever an Employee carries out any Departmental Action they must the carry out the following Atomic Action:
*Increase their Productivity by 1, unless doing so would set their Productivity to the same value as the Seniority of the hierarchal rank immediately above the one they currently hold, in which case set their Productivity to zero and increasie their hierarchal rank by 1 place
*Increase the Options of each member of their Team according to the Incentive Formula
*Change their Department to one of the other Departments, at their choice.

In all subrules to the rule Departments, change “An Employee may only perform actions described in this subrule if they belong to the” to “All Actions defined in this rule are Departmental Actions that are restricted to the”. Remove “As a Weekday Action,” wherever it appears from all such rules.

Reset the Options and Vesting of all Employees to zero, set each Employee’s hierarchal rank to Officer, and then set each Employee’s Department to a randomly selected Department.

The RnD situation is such that a mini reset is needed; using that to also make mobility of Department and rank more systematic

I don’t know how I feel about everyone playing musical chairs with their departments. If you want to force people to move around, maybe we could shuffle them on some kind of regular basis?

I’d rather stay where I am, just saying.

against A lot of things going on in this, a good chunk of which I dislike. And I guess I’m not usually the first to go for overturning status quo, anyway.

The shocking revelation that R&D is against anything that undoes their wealth-hoarding!

This seems good but I don’t like having to change your department every time you do an action

maybe make a proposal with just the reset and go from there?
