Proposal: No more ducking accountability[Trivial]

Fails 11-4 (arthexis is the Acting Leader); Trivial—arth

Adminned at 13 Oct 2009 12:30:40 UTC

This is a trivial proposal.

In the Rule entitled “Accountability”, change the text

Whenever the enaction or failure of a Proposal would fine or award Points to a Player, the Admin who enacted or failed it must list these fines and awards in their Admin comment.

to

Whenever the enaction or failure of a Proposal would fine or award Points to a Player, the Admin who enacted or failed it must list these fines and awards in their Admin comment and process those fines or awards.

The current system basically means that one admin processes a batch of proposals, awarding points only to players e likes, and then someone else has to reconstruct everything after the fact to process the remaining points changes.  It’s a lot simpler from a bookkeeping perspective just to do the points changes on adminning.

against Adding extra admin duties slightly decreases the chance of any given proposal being processed, and slows the queue down. It’s not “someone else” that has to catch and process any missed points, it’s “everyone else”.

@Kevan:My point is that by spreading out responsibility the current system increases the total burden of adding points far more than just having the adminning player do it.  Even if you only count the reconstruction and points adding done by other admins.

To Elaborate: I am currently spending less time adminning proposals because I am busy checking each adminned proposal to see whether the awarded points are all accounted for.

@bucky: however, the system seems to be keeping the dynasty going for now. Perhaps you should repropose this when it doesn’t?
