I want to join

The game that’s going on.

And I apologise if I voted for stuff before being registered

Welcome to BlogNomic: you’re now formally a Gambler and can take game actions, cast votes and make proposals. Your past votes are retroactively legal, so there’s no need to recast them.

Although we have a Mentor system, it doesn’t work during a metadynasty because the game has no Emperor. If you want someone to mentor you informally, or if you have any general questions, just ask - either in blog comments, or over on Slack.

Quorum rises to 7.

Quick question:

How do you get wagers?

Just edit the wiki page directly to say what your new wager is. You’ll need to create a wiki account to do that - instructions are here.

“To protect the wiki against automated account creation, we kindly ask you to answer the question that appears below (more info):
Please enter the wiki signup password (it is visible in the blog sidebar if you are logged in):”

What does this mean?

Instructions are here: “To keep spammers out, the registration process asks you for the “wiki signup password” - if you’re a logged in user whose blog account has been approved, this password is visible on every page of the BlogNomic blog, at the bottom of the right-hand sidebar.” (I guess if you’re on mobile it’s at the very, very bottom of the page.)

Ok done

Now what

Just edit the wiki page directly to say what your new wager is.

Which part of the wiki though?

I don’t see anything on there that says you must edit this to get your wager.

Updating your Wager at is recognised as a game action by BlogNomic. (If it’s a legal action then the game accepts it, if you make some mistake in the update then other players can roll it back.)

The rule explaining this would be

So I just pick them?

Looks like you’ve done that. Yep: “A Gambler who is neither Locked-in nor Stunned may change their wager at any time.”
