Proposal: Hack the Planet

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 06 Aug 2015 07:50:45 UTC

Add a new rule to the ruleset, entitled Denizens:

Each Hacker has a Corp Name and any number of Codenames. Their Corp Name is the same as their BlogNomic account name, and is public.

As a daily action, a Hacker may set up a new Codename by adding it as an NPC in the GNDT, with a unique name of their choosing that is followed by an asterisk to denote that it is a Codename. Thereafter, it is the responsibility of each Hacker to keep their ownership of their Codenames both secret and provable, by whatever means they deem most secure. If ever the ownership of a Codename becomes the subject of a Call for Judgement and it is determined that ownership of that Codename cannot be definitively proved, any Hacker may remove that Codename from the GNDT.

Idle Hackers may control Codenames. Any dynastic rule that affects Codenames is considered to affect Idle Hackers who control Codenames. Idle Hacker are not considered to be Hackers for any other rule.

The problem with this is that it assumes all players are admins with the GNDT config password.

Right now that isn’t a problem, but…

Secret GNDT codenames also won’t work as intended, as each GNDT action is logged with an IP hash (hover over any timestamp to see it). But that can be disabled for a dynasty.

IP hashes are now redacted in the GNDT.

Theoretically I (and server owner 75th Trombone) can still access the information by logging into the server and inspecting the raw logs. I assume 75th Trombone has a logfile of logins somewhere, so if I say that I’m not going to touch the server again this dynasty, he should be able to confirm that if needed.

for but we should really put some thought into a workaround for non-admins.
