Proposal: [Core] I choose you!

Timed out. 3-3, can’t be enacted. Failed by card.

If the proposal “[Core] Multi-leader Voting” has not passed, this proposal does nothing instead.
Add to “Special Proposal Voting”

If there is more than one Expedition Leader, an Explorer may make a PREFERENTIAL vote. It is a vote of confidence in that particular Expedition Leader. A PREFERENTIAL vote is in the form of :X:, where X is the name of an Expedition Leader. When an Expedition Leader has a valid vote other than VETO or PREFERENTIAL, all PREFERENTIAL votes with the name of that Expedition Leader become the same as that Expedition Leader’s Vote for the purposes of other rules unless otherwise specified.

Sure for

Its pretty much just a sort of automatization in the end. “My vote will be their vote”

Also, potential new voting icon? I really like the exploration of the new multiemperor stuff.

“DEF” and “PREF”

aaaay it has a good ring to it

against I’d replace DEF with PREF in core, but think both is too much.

That can work too actually. PREF can be generalized to be *anyone*, not just the ELeader (or any other specific ELeader).

Yeah, why only PREF to Expedition Leaders?

Apologies to the BNScript maintainers.

One good reason to only PREF to Expedition Leaders: avoiding circular PREFs. I think we should also for this reason disallow PREFs from Expedition Leaders.

against per pokes, in favour of replacement.

Are circular PREFs really something that needs to be avoided?

So at least some of the people who voted agree that PREF should replace DEF and people can’t PREF themselves.

I think DEF would be good to keep as shorthand for “I prefer whatever the quorum decision of the Emperors decides”
