Proposal: Fake It Till You Make It

Those Soldiers who are literate are recommended to be artistic and original in any creative writing tasks this war may entail. High Command understand creativity and wit to be directly connected to battlefield success; and what They say, goes.

Reporting, Devenger. (Thanks Kevan for implementing the new emoticon.)

Add the following to Rule, “Action Points”:

When voting on a Proposal, a Soldier may include the icon with their Vote if they believe the Flavor Text for that Proposal is well-suited to the Dynasty.

When a Soldier’s Proposal is Enacted or Failed, that Soldier may increase their AP by 1 if the number of counted votes that include the icon exceeds or equals Quorum. This may only be done a single time per such Proposal, and only within 24 hours of Enactment or Failure.

A Soldier’s AP shall not be greater than 10.

Make the icon available when commenting in the same way the voting icons are available.

imperial Why can’t it just be text?  That would be much simpler to implement.

for This is how to add further “emoticons” (which is what the voting icons are), for the benefit of the enacting admin.

Since this looks like it’ll pass when it times out, I’ve gone ahead and added the arrow button now, since I’m possibly the only admin with the server access to do it.

Kevan: Yep. Did the password for shell access change within the last two years? I found out that I don’t have access anymore.
