Call for Judgment: blognomic.ruleset.ArrayIndexOutOfBounds(“Bizome Blvd”)

Timed out, 5 votes to 1. Enacted by TyGuy6.

Following instructions to “close it by decreasing the Bucks of the Top Bidder by the number in the Top Bid, and making that Bidder the Seller of the House being Auctioned in the Post” would be impossible for the supposed Auction, as there are no Valid Bids, and therefore no Top Bid. This CfJ had no effect, other than upholding two wiki edits which had not been challenged.

Considering all bids on the following Auction not to be Valid Bids, close the following Auction:

Then, uphold the following two edits made to the Gamestate: and

Well, Bizome Blvd can only contain 10 house, and Raven has created a house on the 31st, and Silverwing made an auction out of the nonexistent house.

This assumes House 31 has never, and never existed.

So, do you want to close it, as in, giving someone the House, or as in, an admin removing it from view?

Not necessary, I think, as that auction post is just straight invalid.

Why not just rename the house?

And then give me it?

TyGuy all the bids on that are considered not to be valid, in which per the rules on closing Auctions no one would be given the house

But otherwise you cannot close Auctions and any other reference (close this Auction; close this Post) will be synonymous with the ruleset defined Action, so to reduce the ambiguity I used the usual procedure to end a Auction with the activating condition leading to no one being granted the house

Since if you have no Valid Bids, there is not a Highest Bidder and so no one can gain Sellership from that

Trapdoor you also need to consider the part where TyGuy revives the two killed - it’s better to uphold that using CfJ

@Chiiika Ok, yes. Normally, closing an Auction Post would be accompanied by taking some Bucks and giving a House. But as Josh pointed out, the Auction Post is invalid:

“An Auction Post ... names a single, available House…”

It’s just a Story Post, and has no effect.  against

I don’t think correcting the wiki requires upholding via CfJ. CfJ is more for if you disagreed with the correction.

I do disagree with the correction. I expended a daily action for an effect that’s not really related to the house being auctioned. Seems weird to roll back that action (without refunding it)  just because the house is invalid.

for Per Vovix—daily actions have a cost, and these were undertaken in good faith.


29-10-2021 17:53:09 UTC

@Vovix, @Brendan If you want to get a refund, this CfJ doesn’t do it. I don’t think this CfJ does anything, as closing an Auction Post without any Valid Bids doesn’t mean anything.

Well, it explicitly upholds the two actions, right.


29-10-2021 18:25:06 UTC

The two actions are the edits I made to remove the House and revive the dead buyers. This CfJ just upholds current gamestate, as far as I can tell.

Silverwing: she/her

Can I put out another auction?
