I hate this dynasty. It just doesn’t make any sense. I mean, what genius thought time travel would make a good subject for a dynasty? And green? Why would anyone pick green as a background colour? Okay, I’ll stop complaining now.

The preceding is entirely fictional and does not represent the actual views of SingularByte. Incidently, since I stopped complaining in the last sentence, I’ve just completed step 5 of Improve the Dynasty.

You didn’t stop complaining.  You merely claimed you would stop complaining.

Also, the ruleset redefines “Add a short (100 to 300 word) essay to the wiki’s Essays Page”.  You haven’t accomplished that either.

It didn’t state a period of time I had to stop complaining. Since I was complaining at one point, but I’m currently not complaining, I think the step is completed, even if I complain again later.

Ah. I missed that it had been redefined.

Technically, we all stop complaining. Eg:

Stop spamming our game with your meaningless posts. I do not like them.

In the space between those two sentences, I stopped complaining. Sure, I started again, but I did stop.

Is that a complaint?

If the step becomes meaningless because it wasn’t specific enough, I don’t see why it should become arbitrarily more difficult.

This might make more sense as a dynasty if I hadn’t shown up in the middle of it, I’m still trying to work out how it works.

I think I’ll delete that step when that Proposal passes, now that I think of it.
