Proposal: It’s Impolite to be Trite

In the rule “Criteria” add the following subrule named “Trite”:

There is a publicly-tracked list named Trite, defaulting to an empty list, that can either be empty or contain one or more single-word nouns that are unique from the other nouns in the list. The Trite can be no larger than 20 nouns.

As a weekly action, a Seeker may either add a unique noun to the Trite, as long as the Trite is not already at its maximum length, or replace an existing noun with a different one as long the replacement is still unique from the others in the Trite.

In the rule “Scoring” after the text “a Seeker may make a post in the story post category with the title of their choice which includes a single Authentic Shot” add the following text:

and the Trite at the time that the post is made

and in the same rule, after the text “may respond to it stating how many of their own Private Criteria that Shot meets” add the following text:

, but may not include any Private Criteria that contains any of the nouns listed in the Trite in the the post containing that Shot

Here’s a way we as a group can dynamically affect Private Criteria by adding common things in photos that people shouldn’t get Score for. It can also become a strategic place of activity if someone consistently keeps scoring on their own pictures with the same subject matter.
