Proposal: It’s Personal

Timed out, 3-0. Enacted by JonathanDark.

Adminned at 20 Apr 2024 18:00:22 UTC

If the proposal “Personal Criteria” was not enacted, this rule has no effect.

Replace the text of the rule “Personal Criteria” with the following:

Each Seeker has a Personal Criteria, which defaults to empty. A Seeker may initiate the process of setting their Personal Criteria by making an uncategorized blog post where the title of the post contains the text “Personal Criteria Request” and the body of the post may contain any text of the author’s choosing. This type of blog post is known as a Personal Criteria Request, and the author of such a post is the Requestor.

All Seekers other than the Requestor may respond to a Personal Criteria Request with one of the following types of responses, and only one of each such response type per Personal Criteria Request:
* A non-fictional object that has not yet been mentioned in the responses to this Personal Criteria Request
* A with the name of an object already mentioned by another Seeker in this Personal Criteria Request

The Requestor may respond to this Personal Criteria Request with a and the name of an object already mentioned by another Seeker in this Personal Criteria Request. They may do this once for each such unique object.

48 hours after a Personal Criteria Request is posted, among the objects that were not mentioned in a response by the Requestor with a , if there is an object mentioned in more responses containing   than any other object in that Personal Criteria Request, the Requestor’s Personal Criteria is set to that object. Otherwise, that Personal Criteria Request has failed and any further responses to it are invalid.

In the rule “Scoring”, replace the text “If a Seeker who has a Personal Criteria does not include it in their Snap, the Snap is worth 0 points. If they do include their Personal Criteria, then they get three extra points on top of the points they would get normally.” with the following text:

When a Seeker who has a non-empty Personal Criteria posts a Shot, the following rules apply to that Seeker for that Shot:
* If that Shot contains the object mentioned in their Personal Criteria at the time of that post, they gain 3 Score in addition to the other Score gains they may receive for that Shot.
* If the preceeding step does not apply, they may not gain any Score from that Shot.

If we’re going to have Personal Criteria, then let’s try to make it work. I tried rewriting things to be close to what I think was intended.

Wondering if we do this, do we need a restriction against using someones else’s personal criteria in private criteria.

I think that’s part of the game: making it a challenge to score on someone else’s personal criteria by also making it your private criteria, because you have the risk of it being Guessed.
