Proposal: In at the Ground Floor

Enacted popular, 12-0. Josh

Adminned at 24 Sep 2021 21:15:44 UTC

Enact a new rule, “Floors”:-

Earthlink Tower has a number of Floors: 64 above ground (numbered 1 through 64 in sequence) and 8 below ground (numbered B1 through B8 in sequence). The top floor of the Tower is Floor 64, and the bottom is Floor B8, with Floor 1 being directly above Floor B1.

Each Citizen is on a Floor of Earthlink Tower, defaulting to Floor 1. A Citizen’s Floor is publicly tracked.

why not have the basement floors named -8 to -1 (negative 8 to negative 1)
but “Floor 1 being directly above Floor B1.” is annoying, consider having ground floor be floor 0 and have B1 below 0 and 1 above 0

I like it as it is; that’s how lifts work.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a lift. Counting from 1 is a US thing, isn’t it? The last dynasty’s census had an American flavour to the names, so I was intending to carry that forward. “B” is “Basement”, here.

Two later proposals are already operating on these assumptions, but feel free to propose a renumbering if you feel strongly about it.

against the B is fine, but id really like to count normally here. -1 comes before 0, which comes before 1.

I don’t mind the naming system, I think it’ll be easy enough to adjust to anything.  for
