Need a better time out provision

“If the oldest pending Proposal has enough AGAINST votes that it could not be Enacted without one of those votes being changed, or if all Protagonists have voted on it and it still cannot be Enacted, or if the Protagonist who proposed it has voted AGAINST it, or if it is more than 48 hours old and at least half of its votes are AGAINST, then any Admin Staff may mark that Proposal as Failed. When the proposer votes against eir own proposal, that vote may not be changed.”

Proposal: Happy Christmas. [Late]  is currently at 3-2-6. Since we have 19 Protagonists (I ought to idle a deal of them), the first clause is not satisfied. Clearly the second is not either, nor the third, nor the last. Does anybody else find this vexatious? By the way, I believe the sidebar tracks 1 day = 100 hours.

Sounds like enacted to me, assuming that’s for - againstimperial

More than half, that’s correct.

Saurik brought up the problem - Deferential votes count as votes, so they interfere with the half AGAINST tally. This needs to be fixed.

Don’t count as votes in my book.  In uncontested elections, you win if you have at least half the /counting/ votes for: abstentions are just a fancy way of not voting.  i’d read blognomic the same way.
