Proposal: Blocks

Vetoed upon ascension. — Quirck

Adminned at 07 Nov 2013 10:28:55 UTC

Create a new rule entitled ‘Blocks’, containing the following:

In each political affiliation (i.e. WS or SW) exist Blocks. Every MN may set their Block as a Weekly Action. The Block of a MN is tracked in the GNDT.

If the number of members of a Block in a certain Orientation is more than one third of the number of members of that Orientation and more or equal to two, then this Block is called a Strong Block.

A Strong Block can influence all decisions of this Orientation, i.e. if all members of a Block vote the same on a certain Votable Matter, then all votes of the members of that Orientation count are changed into that Vote.
If there is more than one Strong Block in a Orientation, and these Blocks vote different on a Votable Matter, then the votes of the members of that Orientation for that Votable Matter are not changed by this Rule, and Polarization is accelerated by 6 hours.

There it is: my first Proposal! I warmly welcome all suggestions.

Polarization is magically accelerated.. By whom, when?

against “...if all members of a Block vote the same…” Doesn’t mean that it has to be a Strong Block to change the votes.  Because of this, as long as there are fewer than 2 Strong Blocks in an Orientation, if two blocks vote differently, there is no way of determining who voted what.

I think we’re in hiatus pending the resolution of the Declaration of Victory. So, my guess is the clock will run out on this proposal and you’ll have to resubmit - provided the DoV is defeated. Otherwise we’ll see what the new Dynasty provides :-)

Nope. I’m wrong. Hiatus has nothing to do with Votable matters.

I need coffee. :-/ imperial
