Times out 3-4. Failed by Brendan.

In the rule “Departments” Replace the text

A proposal is a Departmental Proposal if and only if it mentions by name any number of departments, includes the phrase “A memo for my coworkers”, its effects are limited to changing the ranks of members of that Department, and it does not include the phrase “All departments” or a synonym for it. Only employees who are members of the departments named in a Departmental Proposal may vote on that Departmental Proposal; all other votes are invalid. For the purpose of calculating the quorum for a Departmental Proposal, only the Employees whose votes would be valid are considered to be Employees.

with

A proposal is a Promotion Proposal if and only if it is Titled “Requesting Promotions” and the text of the proposal is “Requesting Promotions for XXX” where XXX is a list of the names of one or more employees. When a Promotion Proposal is Enacted, the Hierarchal rank of each Employee included in its list is increased by 1. If an Employee does not share a Department with any Employee whose name is mentioned in a Promotion Proposal their vote on that Proposal is invalid. For the purpose of calculating the quorum for a Promotion Proposal, only the Employees whose votes would be valid are considered to be Employees.

TyGuy its less bampam than the current right at the very least, right? The goal was to keep the spirit of the rule without leaving it quite so broken.

Hmm. Yes, I suppose the current state is bampam within a department. And I’m not sure whether this would improve that, but it probably doesn’t make it worse.

As for broken-ness, I have hope that https://blognomic.com/archive/attempted_regicide will fix the broken part.
