Proposal: An August Solution, now with remembering how this works

Vetoed by Operation: Veto Everything. - Qwazukee

Adminned at 24 Aug 2009 05:20:20 UTC

Delete all dynastic rules from the ruleset.
Declare the winner of the current dynasty to be 75th trombone, for his continual support of Blognomic; however, 75th trombone will not become the Phil, make an Ascension Address, nor start a new Dynasty.
Start a new dynasty: The First Augustinian Dynasty of Qwazukee and arthexis. 

Rename Bill Murrays to Citizens
Rename Weatherteam to Quorum
Rename Phil to Augustus.  The plural of Augustus is Augusti.

Add the following Rule:

For the duration of this Dynasty there may be more than one Augustus.  A proposal is vetoed iff all Augustsi vote to veto it. Votes of :imperial: count as for if all Augusti have voted for, against if they have all voted :against:, and as explicit abstentions if they have all voted and neither of the prior conditions holds.

Qwazukee and arthexis become Augusti.

For those that don’t know 75th trombone pays the bills for Blognomic.  Plus I love it when someone idle wins.

This proposal will hopefully help Qwazukee and arthexis settle their differences, or at least have a giant power struggle that will amuse the rest of us.  The name comes from Augustus Caesar, of roman fame, after whom the system of Emperors was later named: at many points in history the system was set up to include two joint Augusti whose responsibilities overlapped.

For reasons that I don’t know, Darth Cliche has decided he wants to be an Augustus and hijacked this proposal.  Feel free to vote your conscience on the two proposals, I just got here.

imperial for Do-people-really-want-to-end-this-now reasons.

Also, I still don’t think “iff” it legally binding, so under these, either of us could Veto anything.

iff is in the OED, with one definition.  If you want to complain about it, too bad.  (It means ‘if and only if’ for the nonscientists/nonphilosophers in the crowd)

I don’t have a problem with it, it just looks like a typo to a large portion of the world. If everyone knows what it means, I’m fine with it.

Actually,  against
Just because the dynasty title in the other one is easier.

Wow, that’s so irrelevant, yuri.

CoV for as with 3 Augusti, it’ll be too hard to get a veto, or a common vote for DEFs. Whichever one passes…

Oh wow! I didn’t see it before I posted that comment, but now I’m seeing the warning message beneath all the other comments.


08-23-2009 16:16:49 UTC

It appeared very recently. What happened?


08-23-2009 18:01:01 UTC

I changed the system so that error messages appear to not only super admins, but to everyone so that I could fix it. I have done so, and changed the error messages back to super admins only.  imperial

Come on Qwaz, it’s going to fail anyway.
