Proposal: An Economy of Love

S-K’d -Elias IX

Adminned at 17 Dec 2006 18:02:54 UTC

Add a GNDT column entitled Money.

Create a rule entitled Cash Awards with the following text:

Olympians are not only awarded medals for placing well, but money, as well. The money they earn is in the currency of

Love Dollars (L$)

Yen

. Whenever an Olympian receives a bronze medal, e receives

L$

1

000 Yen

. Silver medals,

L$

2

000 Yen

. Gold medals,

L$

5

000 Yen

Popular Olympians instead receive 150% of the normal money award, rounded down to the nearest

integer

multiple of 1000

. Star Olympians instead receive 200% (not compounded with the 150% Popular Bonus) of the normal money award.

If more than half of all comments containing counted FOR votes also contain the not case-sensitive text “Psh, love?”, then enact the red text instead of the blue text. Otherwise, enact the blue text and do not enact the red text.

Love Dollars are mushy and Yen is too Japanese(not to be racist). Can we have purple text?  against

Aiya, well that’s okay. If this goes nowhere I’ll try some other currencies. But mechanics-wise, is this proposal okay?

Yes. I like the concept. Not sure about the earning extras for being popular. I think popular Olympians should earn that somehow else(sponsors perhaps), just not from winning.

Sponsorships! Ahh, what a good idea.

imperial  I do recommend that the popular athletes do not receive extra cash on victory, and I would prefer the idea of, maybe, OCU (Olympic Currency Units), or anything else. I will vote for  on a revised version.

I made a revised version of this proposal. It is under “Money Economy”. It adds a clause for voting on the preferred currency unit, and takes out the popularity bonus.
