Proposal: Grandiloquism

Times out and passes 5-3. -Bucky

Adminned at 13 Oct 2011 11:30:20 UTC

If any Artists have Movements of more than 26 characters in length, those Artists revert to having no Movement.

After the second sentence of Rule 2.7 (Movements), add:-

A Movement may not be longer than twenty-six characters.

Outlandishly long movement names make the GNDT harder to read, at least in my browser.

(Note that this proposal included the image for Exhibition purposes - I have now edited the proposal to remove it, having successfully Exhibited the work.)

It also means you have to scroll the GNDT iframe to read the last GNDT action in full. Maybe I should just hardcode something to hyphenate hilariously long words?

Since they currently serve no useful purpose, maybe their owners could just voluntarily remove them?

Actually for as having one name actually holds no advantage to having another, and long ones just annoy people.

How did you Exhibit the proposal if nobody ARROWed it?

It met a Zeitgeist criteria.

There’s no requirement for a Work of Art to have been arrowed to be Exhibited, is there? I just claimed the Zeitgeist bonus.

Comically realistic in fact: Nobody actually liked this work of art, but it’s creator is acclaimed anyway since it was trendy!
