Proposal: Expecting the Unexpected [Building Blocks]

Reached quorum, 4-0. Enacted by JonathanDark.

If the proposal “Co-op No-op” failed, then to the Building Block “No Cooperation” (both in the ruleset and the Building Blocks wiki page), add a paragraph:-

If a Seeker feels that another Seeker has gone against this expectation in some way during the current dynasty, then they are encouraged to vote against all DoVs from that Seeker during that dynasty. This overrules the encouragement to vote according to the perception of a victory in the rule “Victory in Ascension”.

Per Jonathan’s question on Co-op No-op about whether a DoV can be reasonably voted down for going against the “loose definition” of the spirit of the rule.

Under the current ruleset, if a team cooperates their way to victory, the rules say that a player’s vote on that DoV is “encouraged to reflect whether or not they agree with the proposition that the poster has achieved victory in the current Dynasty”. Although No Cooperation says that the victor was “expected” not to do that, the ruleset is still encouraging each voter to vote on the proposition rather than the expectation.

So let’s make clear that it’s fine to vote against a DoV if you feel that this expectation has not been met.
