Timed out 2 votes to 4. Failed by Kevan.

If a rule called “The Switch” exists, rename it to “Network Switch”.

Enact a new rule, “The Switch”:-

The Dynasty of the Second Switch is a game being played at It is regarded by BlogNomic as a test dynasty whose winner, if any, is immaterial. Players of that game are encouraged to repeal the rule “Victory and Ascension” within that game.

A simpler solution: requesting that the Second Switch game disable its victory mechanism, so that we don’t have to worry about both dynasties producing their own winner.

And ah, Josh already got there. (I’d already asked players on Slack over the weekend if it was worth proposing such a thing to gauge opinion.)

against I prefer the other solution, but there’s also the possibility of a compromise.

[Zyborg] Are you saying “this would be impolite to the other dynasty” or “I personally am playing the Wordpress dynasty to win”, there?

This proposal is intended as more of a question than a mandate, given the overlap of players across the two dynasties. If there isn’t quite a quorum over at Wordpress, they can vote down the recommendation to repeal, and we’ll know where we stand.

But if nobody is actually playing the Wordpress game to win, it would be great to know that. It might even revive the EE game, which is currently being played by maybe two people.
