Proposal: Fixing tech ownership holes up

vetoed—Yoda

Adminned at 29 May 2008 16:57:15 UTC

Replace “A DDA Member or Planar Entity may own zero or more pieces of Space Technology (abbr. Tech).” in the first paragraph of the rule 2.4 Technology with

A DDA Member or Planar Entity may be the owner of zero or more pieces of Space Technology (abbr. Tech). DDA Members and Planar Entities may only acquire or lose Tech by way of a successful proposal or as described by a rule.

If this proposal passes, all Tech owned by DDA Members is lost.

This is an attempt to prevent players from acquiring tech simply because there’s no reason they can’t - we need to be more careful about this in future, because this is the sort of thing that accidentally ends a dynasty early…

Yeah, I’m so going to change a fair and sensible proposal in your favour after you reverted me to a lame, common EnergyColor. [/lame-unjustified-discrimination]

veto Actually, we want to have the DPS and CCC to still exist.  This proposal would destroy the DPS and CCC.  Making them unowned is good. Destroying them is bad.

Explain - how is a DDA Member losing a Tech removing the Tech from existence? Surely the DDA Member would no longer have a ‘copy’ of the Tech, but the Tech’s entry would be intact?

Or have I really messed up the wording?
