Proposal: I Met A Man

Unanimously passes with 15 for votes. Ien.

Adminned at 01 May 2010 07:26:05 UTC

Enact a new Rule, “Leaders’ Debates”:-

A Voter’s Popularity is the number of Ballots that carry their name. If there exists a number N where exactly three Voters have a Popularity higher or equal than N, then these three Voters are known as the Leaders.

If any Leaders exist, the Returning Officer may call a Leaders’ Debate by posting a blog entry with a title “Leaders’ Debate: <Subject>” (where “<Subject>” is the a subject of the Returning Officer’s choosing) and naming the current Leaders (known as the Debaters of that Debate). The Debaters of a Debate should use the comments on its post to discuss the subject raised; other Voters should post no more than one comment each, each of those comments consisting of no more than two sentences.

Giving a structured platform to allow the strongest candidates to publicly debate the issues that matter in a Nomic.

If he’s wise, IepnwIII will want to avoid sharing a stage with spikebrennan’s charismatic presence.

I like the idea, but what value for N would you be thinking. Currently there are only three candidates that have multiple votes. IepnwIII with 6, spikebrennan with 3 and Kevan with 2. Personally i think that N should be something closer to 4.

Kevan: City he/him

[Galdyn] N isn’t a specific number, it just has to exist (if the Popularities are 6/3/2/1/1/1 then it does, if they’re 6/3/2/2/1/1 then it doesn’t). It’s just an unambiguous way of saying “if three people are ahead of everyone else”.
