Proposal: Backseat Driving

Reached quorum 14 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 05 May 2010 07:42:54 UTC

Enact a new rule, “Caretaker Government”:-

If a Voter is selected by more Ballots than any other Voter, then they are the Favoured Candidate. During this dynasty, a vote of DEFERENTIAL is a vote of no opinion, or of faith in the decision of the Favoured Candidate.

A vote of DEFERENTIAL will count as the same as the Favoured Candidate’s vote. If the Favoured Candidate casts a vote of DEFERENTIAL on a proposal, it serves the purpose of cancelling any previous vote on that proposal that was cast by the Favoured Candidate. If there is no Favoured Candidate, a vote of DEFERENTIAL counts as an explicit vote of abstention.

This rule takes precedence over Rule 1.4 (Voting).

Ais523 has suggested he won’t be around much this week, which doesn’t break anything except the DEFERENTIAL voting. Given that the Ballot Leader will be in charge soon, maybe they could resolve the DEF votes for this dynasty as well.

obligatory imperial for laughs since I don’t think ais523 will change his vote for laughs.

for  @Put: It’s a bad idea to do ” imperial  therefore for “, because then your vote is counted as FOR even if the emperor CoVs to AGAINST. (IIRC, in Kevan’s most recent dynasty, this happened to Keba, slowing down a proposal that could have been failed early.)

Hm, I can’t remind of that Proposal, but as I was a Newcomer to Blognomic, I might have done this mistake. I agree to you, no player should resolve DEFs himself.

Note, that this also handles DEFs in CfJs and mabye even in DoVs. But I can‘t see a problem with that for the ~two days this Rule will exist.
