Repeal “Combos”

this rule has caused more trouble than it’s worth

Maybe just set it to Inactive, because it has been of great use in other dynasties (Axemabaro I’s endgame and Cuddlebeam I’s endgame)

I’ll let Card choose between repeal or inactive and I’ll green tick either one.

[Cuddlebeam] Checking the archives I can’t see any “great use”. Axemabaro I’s endgame appears to have been you doing some wacky loop stuff (“1 Make a Combo Post with 1,000,000 Cool Sequences…”) and the other players rejecting it at DoV. Cuddlebeam I’s was you trying to win your own dynasty with a wacky hundred-step combo but losing out to Pokes just taking the actions directly and posting “I did the following:” in a blog post.

There was some Combo’ing going on in Sphinx I (eg. Koen setting up camp), but it was only a hair’s breadth away from already being covered by “One GNDT or wiki update may contain one or more alterations, or one alteration may be split over multiple updates, as long as it is clear what is happening and the alterations are otherwise legal.”

Nooooow that I recall why we had this in the first place.

It was mostly for the playerbase’s general convenience to be able to read what I was doing. It was made in Viv’s or shortly after because I was constantly “comboing” Moods to fuel myself for a very long time and perform an abusive amount of actions, about 20-30 each day. (https://blognomic.com/archive/ganglion_2)

I don’t mind going back to posting long sequences of actions in the GNDT and all and just making a blogpost or something explaining it, but I much prefer the Combo system you’ve made instead for that, because it’s a bit more clear.

The problem is, I think it still needs some polish and it has other uses which aren’t those which it was intended for. Still good though. But yeah, Inactive better than Repeal.
