Proposal: [GNO] [BLO] MIC: The Unwanted Step-Child of Blognomia

Illegal, see comments—Rodlen

Adminned at 21 Dec 2008 14:19:04 UTC

This is a proposal for both the GNO and BLO factions. If it passes, it will be included in the GNO ruleset under the title, “Our most unregarded neighbor,” and in the BLO ruleset as “Cheese doodles for breakfast again?!”

1. MIC is the lowliest and most untrustworthy of factions. As such, the Citizens of GNO and BLO have taken it upon themselves to chain all Citizens of MIC to a rock. Per this rule, all MIC Citizens are Chained to a Rock, and thereby lose the power to vote, to make proposals, to issue calls for judgment, or to declare victory.

2. MIC Citizens that are Chained to a Rock may not switch factions unless they engage in an act of Self Immolation.

3. A Citizen of MIC may Immolate eirself by making a post titled, “I hereby renounce MIC.” In the post, the Citizen of MIC must declare whether they are defecting to GNO or BLO. Upon declaration, the MIC Citizen shall become a member of the declared faction (being either GNO or BLO).

4. If a Citizen of MIC defects to BLO, they instantly suffer 100 broken bones. If a Citizen of MIC defects to GNO, they instantly fall to -100 Garden Gnomes and are ceremonially shot out of the Snowball Cannon.

Brothers of Blo and Gno, let us nip this unseemly faction….in the bud.

I am not fond of this idea because the end result is the end of the Faction MIC, because being a member means you can no longer play in the nomic.

Such McCarthyism. You’d have to be really mean to vote for this.

I don’t know if your vote counts, Amni.

It does, because it qualifies as being within more than one rulesset, so it’s within all of them.

WHEREAS any citizen may vote on a proposal which isn’t a faction proposal;
WHEREAS this proposal isn’t a faction proposal;

THEREFORE MIC can attempt to avert this fate.  against

WHEREAS MIC is currently weak;
WHEREAS MIC wishes to avoid hostilities;

THEREFORE citizens of other factions are asked to fail this proposal.

WHEREAS the Citizen named Oze accepts SingularByte’s analysis;
WHEREAS this proposal is nasty;
THEREFORE Oze votes against

Actually, this is very interestiing…

This post is actully a GNO post.  It has no bearing at all on the BLO rules, nor the MIC rules, but it is, entirely, legal within the GNO rules.

So, with that understanding, the votes of neither MIC nor GNO count, and this proposal cannot effect anything other than the BLO rules.

against Just incase mine counts. But this is really mean spirited. Eljefe, we should shoot you out the cannon while aiming it down the side of Mt. Doom for this.

against  Faction proposals don’t work like this.

for Simply because it sounds really fun. And because my for vote ultimately means absolutely nothing.


21-12-2008 01:13:56 UTC

Oh, hey.  If this is a GNO proposal than I can drop a veto on it.


21-12-2008 02:12:35 UTC

Actually, it’s not a GNO proposal until “Making things a bit more clear” passes.

“and is considered to be made only within the context of the Ruleset and Gamestate for that Citizen’s Faction.”

This is illegal.  Faction posts can only be made for the faction you are in.  You are not in two factions.
