Call for Judgment: All Motions Are Mandatory

Enacts 2-0 after more than 48 hours. -Bucky

Undo the purported effects of Ending the Regional Development Forum at https://blognomic.com/archive/regional_development_forum_unnamedregion1 on May 15th, including the increases in population in the cities of Automata and Arkham resulting from the Residential Zones purportedly built.

It was purportedly ended after less than 48 hours because all relevant City Architects had posted valid responses. However, a valid Response to a Regional Development Forum must have a single response to each Motion, and none of the purported Responses responded to the “Build [Effortful Active] a Residential Zone in Ballynamadan” motion. Therefore, there were no valid Responses and the Regional Development Forum’s Motions’ Effects were illegally applied.

Interesting. So, if people feel that this is how the rules work, is it possible to even have a Regional Development Forum at this point? How can a Response be both “A single response” and “to each Motion”? If you make a single comment with a Response to each Motion, that seems like it would be considered multiple Responses.

A Response to an Event is defined in the Special Case “Event Types”. It is a comment.
A response to a Motion is defined in a bullet point inside the format for a Response to a Regional Development Forum Event, in the rule “Regional Development Fora”. It is a for or against or an integer, that is part of a comment.

Bucky’s interpretation here does line up with my own understanding, and it’s how I’ve voted in my own region. On the other hand, I’d be fine with an uphold on the basis that the votes for region 1 were neither attempt to scam the system, nor notably different from how correct responses would have played out. There’s no actual benefit to have split it into multiple comments.

Yes I voted for both. Just want to see what happens as neither contains an exclusion clause.
