Proposal: Leaving Cults

Timed out 3 votes to 8. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 20 Dec 2012 14:39:48 UTC

Add a new subrule to the rule “Cults” called “Leaving a cult” reading:

A Believer may, by command, cease to be part of a Cult they are a member of. The Cult to be left has to be specified in that Order.
The Auspex should inform the leader of the Cult as well as the Believer who left the Cult that the Believer left the Cult. After receiving confirmation by the Auspex, the Believer no longer belongs to the Cult he specified in his Order.

So when you couple this with the change to how joining cults works (Fresh Blood), it could easily let a Believer go in and out of open cults at will (only held up on the Auspex who is supposed to be this impartial figure). There needs to either be a limit on how often you can join, or a limit on how often you can leave. Sure you can currently do that with the leaders help by getting kicked out and then both people resending the PMs, but abuse that takes two people to run scares me less than abuse that takes 1 person…

against  I don’t think it’s that easy to leave a cult in real life, I think there should be some sort of penance to leave a cult, and maybe even after they leave, it should be difficult to join a new one.

against “By command” actions may only be taken by Leaders (although I’m not sure why I wrote it like that, in retrospect). Good points from Clucky and Argon, though.
