Story Post: Kevan Woz Ere

The current Whiteboard contains my own name and that of no other Student.

Although Josh attempted to add his own name to the Whiteboard using a Black Pen yesterday, he illegally added many brown, purple and blue pixels at the same time. Rule 2.9 only allows him to replace the Whiteboard with an image “which has had one or more pixels changed to RGB value of that Student’s Pen color and no other changes made”. Reverting to a legal gamestate leaves only my own name on the Whiteboard.

Oh, MS Paint.

I’d like to state that the current whiteboard doesn’t contains only Kevan’s name. Also, I’d like to remember that the Rule “[WOZ] Kilroy Woz Ere” doesn’t state at which conditions the Professor should post a voting icon of FOR in a post like this.

Kevan: he/him

The rule just requires me to believe it contains only my name at the time I made the Story Post. True, though, it does lack guidance for how or whether the Emperor should vote, so it’s up to him what spirit he goes with here.

Looks like the Professor has missed this.

And that’s exactly one of the reasons why I didn’t wanted to vote for that proposal from the beginning. Imagine this cenario rised after a week of people intensely disputing the Whiteboard.

We’ve had perfectly healthy “Emperor should make a subjective call within a day or two” mechanics in the past - the Emperor figure can be a great source of trusted, impartial authority if we want a mechanic whose resolution is “obvious” but which can’t be checked by an algorithm. Looks like I was being optimistic for this dynasty, though.

Sorry about that.  I never had a chance to check your score.
