Proposal: Less burden, take 2 (trivial)

Quorum: 9-0 -Amnistar

All Members gain: 9 DNA

Rewrite Evolutionary Currency so it reads:

There exists an in game currency called “DNA Points”. DNA Points are tracked in the GNDT in a column called “DNA Points”.

DNA Points may only be earned in the following ways:

* Any time a proposal is Enacted, the lifeform who authored the proposal receives 5 * A - 3 * B DNA points where A is the number of counted legal FOR votes cast on the proposal and B is the number of counted legal AGAINST votes.

* Any time a proposal is enacted, each lifeform who voted on the proposal, except its author, is entitled once to, within 24 hours of its enactment, increase eir DNA Points by Y, where Y is the total number of counted legal votes received by the proposal at the time it was enacted.

* Any time a proposal is enacted, all non-idle lifeforms who did not vote on the proposal is entitled once to, within 24 hours of its enactment, increase eir DNA Points by the lower of the two values:
** 20% of whatever the lifeform who proposed the proposal earned.(Rounded down)
** Whatever any Lifeform who voted on the proposal is entitled to earn.

* Occasionally, every lifeform may increase eir DNA Points by 0.05 * Z, rounded down, where Z is the number of DNA points currently possessed by said lifeform. No lifeform may receive more than 50 DNA points per week this way.

When marking a proposal as enacted, the Admin doing so must, besides eir name and the final tally of votes, state:

* how much DNA Points the Author and the Gene Pool did get;
* which lifeforms voted, and which didn’t, on that Proposal, and how much DNA Poins each of em is entitled to earn.

Rewrite The Gene Pool so it reads:

There exists a row in the GNDT called “The Gene Pool” which begins the game with 100 DNA points.

Any time a proposal is enacted, the Gene Pool receives 20% of whatever the lifeform which proposed the proposal earned or whatever a lifeform who voted on the proposal is entitled to earn, whichever is smaller, rounded down.

Once each week, after 0:00 Monday Morning, the DNA Points Gene Pool shall be increased by 0.05 * Z, rounded down, where Z is the number of DNA points possessed by the Gene Pool at that 0:00 Monday Morning. The lifeform who enforces this provision may, at that the same time, increase eir DNA Points by 5. The Gene Pool may not receive more than 25 DNA points per week this way.

New lifeforms DNA points are initialized at the value of however many DNA points are currently owned by the “The Gene Pool”.

Rewrite the non-italicized text of Trivial Proposals so it reads:

A Trivial Proposal is defined to be any Proposal that contains the text “(trivial)” in its Subject. If, at the time of its Enactment, more than half of all comments to a Proposal containing counted votes also contain the text “(Trivial)”, then that Proposal is also defined as Trivial.

Whenever a Trivial Proposal passes, DNA Points are not earned as described in the main body of the “Evolutionary Currency” rule.  Instead, each lifeform who who was active at the time of its enactment, is entitled once to, within 24 hours of that enactment, increase eir DNA Points by Y, where Y is the total number of counted legal votes received by the proposal at the time it was enacted.

When applicable, the provisions in this sub-rule override any restrictions in the main body of “Evolutionary Currency” regarding how DNA Points may or may not be earned.

If more than half of all comments to this Proposal containing counted votes also contain the text “Make it 48”, change all instances of “24 hours” in the text above to “48 hours”, before enacting this Proposal.

The amended effects of Proposal Enactment described by this Proposal do apply to this Proposal’s Enactment.

for Sure, and Make it 48 too, since I like to be able to go an extra day sometimes without logging on…

Won’t this lead to… Erm, lets say… ALL proposals being trivial? Not that I really care, but since there’s ZERO incentive that I see for voters to let a proposal be non-trivial…

and seebo, this proposal does nothing to encourage or stop trivial proposals
