Proposal: How be this?


Adminned at 11 Aug 2008 08:09:03 UTC

I don’t really like the wording of the latter half. Someone should clean it up and actually propose this

Prior to the Election, there are eight debates which occur for candidates to gain support in. Debates are numbered in order of their occurrence, starting at 1 and ending at eight. Each debate has a length, a venue, an issue, a start date and an entry cost. The length of a debate is equal to 30 times the number of the debate. The venue of the debate is equal to number of active candidates at the start of the debate times the five times of the number of the debate. The entry cost is equal to twice the number of the debate. Start dates are as follows:
Debate 1: Start Date: 8-8-2008 at 00:00:00 GMT.
Debate 2: Start Date: 8-15-2008 at 00:00:00 GMT.
Debate 3: Start Date: 8-23-2008 at 00:00:00 GMT.
Debate 4: Start Date: 8-30-2008 at 00:00:00 GMT.
Debate 5: Start Date: 9-6-2008 at 00:00:00 GMT.
Debate 6: Start Date: 9-13-2008 at 00:00:00 GMT.
Debate 7: Start Date: 9-20-2008 at 00:00:00 GMT.
Debate 8: Start Date: 9-27-2008 at 00:00:00 GMT.
If the current time is after the start date of a debate, all debates whose number is less than the debate have started, and e did not moderate the debate whose number is one less than the debate in question, a candidate may choose to start a debate by making a post to the blog. The post should contain which debate e is moderating and the issue for the debate. The candidate who made the post is considered the moderator of that debate.
Any Candidate wishing to enter the Debate must post a reply to the Debate post with the phrase “I will enter.” And pay the moderator the entry cost, in millions of money, of the debate. The Candidate then must provide the moderator with a response (via) containing up to Length number of words, but not exceeding Length.  This pm must begin with the word “Debate” so the moderator can recognize it as such a response. The reply and response must both be completed within 72 hours of the Debate post being posted.
After 72 and within 96 hours have passed, the moderator must post a story post with “Debate resolution” in the title. If e does not do so in the allotted time, e must pay each candidate who entered the debate twice the entry cost in millions of money and the debate is considered over. If e makes eir post, the body of the Debate resolution must contain a complete copy of the text of each valid pm he had recieved, in no particular order, each with an ascending numeric in front starting with number 1. The numeric associated with each entry is considered to be the numeric of the candidate who wrote that entry. If two candidates send the exact same entry, only the first one is considered to be a valid PM.  The copied text should have the first word “Debate” omitted.  In no way should the Candidate who created each text be revealed in this post. Any Candidate, even those choosing not to debate, may reply to the Debate resolution only once.  In the text of their reply they may choose to enter a single numeric once.  They may only choose a numeric in front of a response that was not identical to their own response. After 48 and within 96 hours after the Debate resolution, the moderator must resolves the Debate. If e does not do so in the allotted time, e must pay each candidate who entered the debate twice the entry cost in millions of money and the debate is considered over. If e resolves it in the allotted time, the number of numeric replies are tallied. Each Candidate receives A / T * V supporters, where A is the number of candidates who voted for eir numeric, T is the number of total candidates for voted for a numeric, and V is the Venue of the debate.
