Proposal: Little Fixes

Self-killed
Failed by Hix

Adminned at 03 Oct 2006 08:32:00 UTC

Addressing some concerns that have been made.

Section 1. If the Proposal titled “Proposal: [Z/2Z]^5” failed, this section of this Proposal does nothing. Change the sentence “The Top Banana may edit this subrule as e sees fit.” to

Often the Top Banana may edit this subrule by adding or removing locations from the list. The addition or removal of any locations in this way may not result in the immediate victory of any player.

The meaning of “immediate” could be resolved by CfJ if the need ever arises.

Section 2. If the Proposal titled “Proposal: Cultural Influence” failed, this section of this Proposal does nothing. Change the sentence “If the DICE5 outcome is a 5, the Vegetable must change eir own Inclination to match the Targeted Vegetable’s Inclination, and subtract 1 from eir own Tastiness.” to

If the DICE5 outcome is a 5, the Vegetable must change eir own Inclination to match the Targeted Vegetable’s Inclination, and subtract 1 from eir own Tastiness, this taking precedence over any rule stating that the Vegetable may not change eir own Inclination.

I don’t usually like bundling changes in this way, but each change is so small they hardly warrant two seperate proposals.

against The conflict in section 2 should be removed entirely, rather than hacking together a “this takes precedence” solution.  Now, if “Vegetable must change eir own Inclination” were changed to “Vegetable’s inclination changes”, the change would be automatic, and it wouldn’t conflict with the already existing rule. 

Also, I am not comfortable with the fact that the proposed addition _takes precedence over itself!_ What a nightmare.

against I can fix the first part on my own, and the second one, well… okay.

I completely agree with Hix, but I think it’s better for this proposal to pass than not pass, so….  for
