Proposal: Alea Iacta Est

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 25 May 2016 08:48:22 UTC

If Proposal: Make It Snappy failed, this proposal does nothing.

Otherwise, add the following to the end of the final paragraph in the rule entitled “Targets”:

They may then add a new Target to the list, with themselves as the Celebrant of that Target.

In the same rule, after the phrase “If a Hunter makes a blog post that includes a Confirmed Photo of a Target”, add “that they are not listed as the Celebrant of”.

If that rule contains the phrase “if they do so, they gain 1 Point”, remove it, and add the following:

They may then gain 2 points and award 1 point to the Celebrant of that Target.

Add a subrule to the same rule, entitled Target guidelines:

A Target is Valid if all of the following conditions are true:

  • It specifies an object, a location and a Celebrant;
  • The object is a visible, tangible item that can be accessed by the public, can be captured in a photograph, and is not already listed as a Target or a struck-through Target;
  • The location is listed as the location of at least one active player of BlogNomic;
  • The Celebrant is the name of the Hunter who added it to the list.

for Seems like the 1-point Celebrant incentive is enough to discourage posting inaccessible or uncapturable Targets. And there’s an infinite loop here if two Hunters stand in the same place and keep taking photos. But sure.

for I unidle.

I assume that’s a request to unidle, since Aname isn’t an admin. Done. (Their vote becomes retroactively valid.)

I almost guarantee this will end with being horribly exploited but I don’t have a better idea so for
