Proposal: Compound recollection

Timed out 4 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 14 May 2022 11:01:32 UTC

If Proposal: Memetic Drift has not been enacted then this proposal has no further effect.

In the rule Recollections, remove the line “A Memory of Atlantis may change their own Recollection at any time.”

Add a new subrule to the rule Recollections, called Primary Sources:

As a daily action, a Memory of Atlantis may post a Primary Source.

A Primary Source is a post in the Story Post category that must contain the following elements: a static, single-frame PNG, JPEG or GIF image, in greyscale only, that purports to be an Atlantean Artefact recovered and brought to the surface; and an Interpretation, which may not be more than 20 English words in length.

In comments to a Primary Source, any Memory of Atlantis other than its original author may post up to one Additional Scholarship, which may optionally include another Atlantean Artefact and which must include another Interpretation.

A Conclusion is the combination of the Interpretation of a Primary Source and any number of the Interpretations of Additional Scholarships posted on it, of the former’s choice. At any time, a Memory of Atlantis may Form a Conclusion from any Primary Source that they have either posted or responded to with Additional Scholarship, and then may set that Conclusion as their Recollection, along with a link to the relevant Primary Source post.

If no Memory of Atlantis otherwise has Consensus then Recollections based on Conclusions may be considered to Concur with the author of the Primary Source from which that Conclusion is derived.

How are Conclusions denoted in the Recollection? Forming a Conclusion doesn’t seem to be explicitly tracked: if I comment that a picture of a skull relates to death and then change my Recollection to be about death, only I know if I actually Formed a Conclusion there or not.

Was it intentional that this removes the option for a player to set their Recollection to another player’s name?
