Proposal: Not a Word from our Sponsor

Reached quorum with 8 votes FOR. Enacted by Kevan. +10 to Kevan.

In Rule 2.4.2 (Sponsored Rules), replace “If a sponsored Rule (or a sub-rule of the sponsored rule) that has a fee defines an action, whenever that action is taken, the Sponsor of that rule is awarded an amount of points equal to the amount of that fee.” with:-

If a sponsored Rule (or a sub-rule of the sponsored rule) that has a fee defines an action, whenever that action is taken by a Player other than the Sponsor, that Player may optionally pay only half the fee (rounding down) instead of the full fee. If they do so, the Sponsor of that rule is awarded an amount of points equal to the amount paid.

Making Sponsored Rules a bit more enticing to other players - you can use them for half price, and the Sponsor has to pay the full fee if they use the action themselves. The current “still pay the full price, which goes to the Sponsor, and the Sponsor can use the action for free” system isn’t very appealing to voters.
