Call for Judgment: Attempted Regicide

Popular, 9-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Adminned at 22 Jan 2022 15:19:03 UTC

Remove the most senior hierarchical rank from the list in the rule “Job Titles.” Replace the sentence “The CEO has a Hierarchal Rank of CEO” in that rule with

The CEO is always considered to have a Hierarchal Rank of CEO, which is more senior than every other rank.

I can’t believe I blithely voted this through and even proposed a change to it that kept the rank in place. There are a ton of exploits by which any player with the rank CEO could make an argument that they are “the CEO” for the purposes of at least dynastic, and possibly core, rules.

doesn’t this remove the CEO (i.e. Zack) from hierarchy stuff? Might be best to do a more careful rewarding that simply doesn’t let anyone else ascend to that rank

This might enact at a time when most players have the rank of CEO; this should probably set their rank to be something else.

Oh, it does set their rank to be something else—if a player has an illegal value for a dynastic variable, they would naturally be reset to the default rank of intern.

As a CfJ it *should* enact a bit faster, but there are no guarantees

[Clucky] Good catch, though I’m not sure the CEO being in the hierarchy or not causes any real issues. I’ve added a provisional exception.

I’d probably vote against this out of self interest tbh

Solution: withdraw “Sales bros!” :D

Better solution: keep Sales bros! and hope that enough other people vote self-interest to fail this!
