Proposal: Bounties of Fun!

Times out and fails 1-4. -Bucky

Set the special case rule “Bounties” to active. If a majority of EVC’s contained the text “Braai Bounty” change “This sentence names, at the end of this sentence after a colon, a single dynastic resource or variable, which is the Bounty Reward Variable for this dynasty: Royal Gift” to “This sentence names, at the end of this sentence after a colon, a single dynastic resource or variable, which is the Bounty Reward Variable for this dynasty: Brisket”

No scams this time I promise, I just feel like getting some ideas.

Unfortunately, bounties are awarded to Groups rather than Visitors, so the only valid Bounties right now are $1, too small, and Visitors, probably too large.

Maybe reword the proposal to add a rule specific to the theme and Visitors, rather than trying to re-use the Bounties special case rule? I like the idea of awards for items, but Bounties is obviously not fitting the current ruleset.

Well, uhh sorry for that, This is yet an attempted proposal again getting withdrawn for good reasons yet uhhh, indicating why I should read the rules better.

It happens, and you’re still inside the proposal edit window.

That is, per rule 4.2.1: “An official post may be altered by its author if it is less than 4 hours old and either no Group has commented on it or (if it is a Votable Matter) if all comments on it contain no voting icons; otherwise this can only be done as allowed by the Ruleset.”

imperial If the people want bounties, I’ll try to make them work.

I’d rather get a rewrite than try to fix the existing proposal.

The Bounty Special Case payout would definitely be easier to work with if phrased as something like “if a Bounty Reward is defined dynastically, it is applied to that player, otherwise nothing happens”.

It is my sincere hope that the rule Grillin’ stays in the dynastic ruleset for at least three more dynasties. No matter what the theme.

imperial I don’t hate bounties for this dynasty, although I agree that implementation could use a second pass.
