Proposal: Abstraction

Timed out, 4-0. Enacted by JonathanDark.

Adminned at 21 Mar 2024 16:39:46 UTC

Add a new rule to the dynastic ruleset, called Awards:

Each Seeker can have a number of Awards, which is publicly tracked and defaults to zero.

At any time, if a Seeker has met the Standard for an Award then they may claim it by making a blog post announcing as such and then incrementing their Awards by 1. A Seeker may only claim each individual Award once in the dynasty.

Any Seeker who has claimed 5 Awards has achieved Victory.

The possible Awards and their Standards are as follows:

{| class="wikitable sortable"
! Award !! Standard
| Fine Art Photographer of the Year || Have more than 200 Points
| Excellence in War Photography || Have a Development Interval of 1
| Outstanding Composition || Have five private Criteria, each of which has an Unsatisfying score of 0 and a Satisfying score of 5
| Grand Prix in Advertising Photography || Successfully Guess (i.e. post a Guess and have the target respond with a FOR mark to that Guess)

If Proposal: b-b-b-b-bonus was enacted, change the Standard for Excellence in War Photography to “Have a Development Bonus of at least 3”.

Only four at the moment, to prevent instant win scams and give room for future mechanics

Should “ Outstanding Composition” be exactly 5 Satisfying, or at least 5? It’s going to be hard enough to have 0 and 5 or more without being exact.

Can’t edit it either way.

Sure, just wanted to understand your intentions before proposing a patch. If you’re not fussed either way, then I’ll just go ahead and do it.
