Proposal: Do Thy Bidding

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 09 May 2016 12:19:22 UTC

In “Planning”, replace “If an Imagineer has any Planned Buildings in their Zone, then their bids on Demand Posts are ignored.” with:-

If an Imagineer has any Planned Buildings in their Zone, then they may not post bids on Demand Posts.

For each Planning post which was closed while it had a bid which was being ignored under the previous wording of this sentence, increase the Debt of that post’s Winner (ie. move its value away from zero) by X, where X is the difference between the winning bid and the lowest ignored bid.

“Ignoring” winning bids is currently a problem: if Mickey bids a ludicrously high 50,000 on something and Donald bids 1,000, but Donald then wins a different bid, Mickey’s old bid suddenly becomes valid (and probably due to be closed) again.

I don’t think you should retroactively punish people are taking advantage of the rules as written

Retroactive punishment varies, but nobody’s taken advantage of it yet. If you were planning to and I spotted it before you could, that’s Nomic.

against Self-kill as this fix has a bug in it.
