Proposal: I will be back… ing off now.

Reached quorum, 11 votes to 1. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 30 Mar 2009 10:16:47 UTC

Create a new rule called “Punchlines”:

A Scripter may add a Punchline to a Scene by adding the text “[PUNCHLINE]” within the Script of that Scene. Then, the Scripter shall add a section called Punchline where they will write down the full text of the punchline. A Punchline can only be added to a Scene if the Body Count of that Scene is 1.

In rule “Best in Show Votes”, add the following item to the list of award categories:

* Best Original Punchline (+0.5 Popularity)
* Worst Original Punchline (-0.5 Popularity)

 

Come with me if you catch my drift.

imperial Would be better if the punchline didn’t count against your 50 word limit.

for 50 words is a fair amount to be able to fit a punchline in. hopefully a very bad ‘PUN’chline…

for I assume the [PUNCHLINE] formatting is intentionally to stop it from counting towards the 50-word limit of the “Script” field.

Qwazukee:

But the punchline is within the script, so I assume it still counts towards the limit.

Kevan:

The Script is “a text summary of the scene which cannot exceed 50 words”; I assume that the newly introduced “section called Punchline” is not part of the Script.

Kevan:

By which I mean that it’s a section of the scene, not a section of the script.

Qwazukee:

So, it’s just the word “[Punchline]” that is counted in the 50? The wording does not seem to make clear whether the actual Punchline section is in the Script or separate from it.

We can assume it’s separate, and confirm that via CfJ, if necessary.

for I read it as separate, and therefore an amusing way for people to bypass the word limit and be more dramatic.

If it’s separate then sure for

Yes, it is a separate section where the punch line is contained (I didn’t want to consume words from the scene with this one)
