Call for Judgment: Hey, you know what happens when you look for core rules scams?

Failed by CfJ: Consensus Gamestate—Chronos Phaenon

Adminned at 23 Oct 2011 05:06:38 UTC

I do not have dictatorship powers over the nomic, even though someone is sorely needed to sort out this mess, and I don’t really trust anyone else here to do it. (Well, perhaps there are a few people, but who’d do it as well as me?) This needs urgent attention.

Create a new core rule, “ais523 Is In Charge”:

ais523 is in Charge. ais523 may make a post to the BlogNomic blog (at
http://blognomic.org), citing this rule as empowering, making any change
to rules and gamestate. This rule may not be repealed and neither the
text nor the title of this rule may be changed in any way, except as
permitted by this rule. This rule takes precedence over all other rules;
if any other rule should say to the contrary, that rule is repealed.

First a note. If this actually passes, somehow, I plan to sort out the mess using my dictatorship powers, then use the rule to win and to repeal itself, starting the next dynasty in a way that aids the faction that I view as most deserving, if factions still exist by then.

Second, this is obviously a scam, and you should all vote AGAINST just in case I have something planned to force it through.

Third, this is probably actually just angling for arrows. Or is it?

against I may be part of the invasion, but I don’t think you should be granted a dictatorship.

And I’d like to see a scam that can beat a quorum of AGAINST votes.

@ais523: Probably not. The supporting the invasion is just an obvious reason not to support it. There are a few players I would trust with such powers though.

What?  You ‘cant allow qourum to happen’?  WTF does that mean?

It’s presumably just a joke - it’s unlikely that anything will hit quorum with so many players, so it would be a shame to break the record.

I hope all the identikit CoVs from Agora players aren’t a result of a mailing list alert saying “please change your vote, I don’t know if you need to specify ‘CoV’ but you probably should”.

For the record, CoV doesn’t need to be specified, it’s just a courtesy to make it easier to count votes. Plenty of players don’t do it, or do it sometimes and not others.

If it’s considered courteous, than I think I’m going to keep doing it.
