Proposal: Building a Name for Ones Self

Quorums 8-0. — Quirck

Add a new dynastic rule called “Reputation” and give it the following text

Each Newspaper has a Reputation Score in the following areas: Journalistic Integrity, Balance, Understandability, and Humor. These scores are integers between -5 and 5 inclusive, and are zero by default. They are tracked in a single column in the GNDT called “Reputation” as a comma separated list in the order listed in this rule.

The idea isn’t “positive good negative bad”. Some papers like having a 12th grade reading level, others like having a 1st grade reading level. Some want to be humorous, some want no humor at all. Some want to be fair and balanced, others “fair and balanced”. And some care deeply about integrity and others could care less. Could maybe add a few more, but these were the ones I came up with at the time.

for Though last time you said “It should not necessarily a bad thing. It should just a thing.”, it turned out to be a bad thing!
