Timed out 4 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

In the “Genes” section of the Ruleset, change “five” to “six” in the sentence “Each Ape has Genetics, which is a list of five Genes.” Change the example Genetics “NoNoNoDeSp” to “NoNoNoDeSp/In”. Append “/No” to the list of default Genetics. Above the sentence “The following are Genes and their effects” add:

The sixth Gene slot, separated by a slash, keeps track of an Ape’s non-inherited trait. This “Gene” slot defaults to No and can never be passed down to future generations. Non-inherited traits are not affected when an Ape Mutates.

To the list of Lifetime Actions, add the following:

*Eat hearty meal: Lose two Food. Change your non-inherited trait to Brawn.
*Host wise guest: Lose two or more Food to have another Ape with more Intelligence Genes than you gain the same amount of Food. Change your non-inherited trait to Intelligence.
*Present Poem: Compose an original haiku, limerick, or sonnet and include it in a new post whose title begins with “Poem:”. Change your non-inherited trait to Charm. This action can only be performed if the Writing Tradition is in the Troop’s Culture.

Before the sentence under the “New Generation Events” section beginning “Use the page located at the following hyperlink,” add the following sentence:

For this step, ignore all Apes’ non-inherited traits and use only the first five Genes in all Apes’ Genetics.

Replace the step “#Press the Splice Genes button and set each Ape’s Genetics to the Genetics that appear to the right of their name in the output and set the default Genetics to the Genetics that appears to the right of the text ‘Default’.” with:

Press the Splice Genes button and set each Ape’s Genetics to the Genetics that appear to the right of their name in the output, appending “/No” to each Ape’s Genetics. Set the default Genetics to the Genetics that appears to the right of the text “Default”, appending “/No” to the Default Genetics.

A vote against this proposal is a vote against poetry.
Hopefully that’s not an incentive for any of you.
