Proposal: Not all guests are friendly

Timed out, 1-6. Failed by Angry Grasshopper.

Adminned at 06 May 2006 15:40:39 UTC

Add two new Guest profiles to the list in Rule 2.7:

Devil’s Advocate: While a Monk is accompanying a Devil’s Advocate, e is required to vote AGAINST all pending proposals.  Also, whenever e votes AGAINST a proposal, e must also make a comment that points out a flaw or otherwise discourages others from voting for that proposal.  A Devil’s Advocate does not expire normally.  Instead, at least 48 hours after the creation of a Devil’s Advocate, anyone may roll DICE(Proposals adminned while Advocate existed).  If the result is less or equal to than the number of failed or vetoed proposals, the Advocate acheives its goal and the Player accompanying it receives 4 Integrity times the DICE roll.  Otherwise, it ceases to exist without acheiving its goal with the normal loss of Integrity. 

Hot Potato: A Monk Accompanying a Hot Potato may force another Monk to Accompany it instead if that Monk has never Accompanied that Hot Potato.  E does this by updating the GNDT and commenting the name of the recipient to the post announcing the Potato’s arrival.  The Porter loses no Integrity for a Hot Potato failing to acheive its goal unless e is accompanying it.  Instead of the normal Integrity penalty for a Hot Potato failing to acheive its goal, the Monk accompanying the Potato when it times out loses 1 Integrity for each Monk who has held that Hot Potato.

A Hot Potato never acheives its goal.

Does this mean a Monk accompanying a Devil’s Advocate must immediately vote against all proposals? If so, it would force Monks to self-kill eir own proposals.
against , but it’s a very good idea.

I like your Devil’s Advocate but not your Hot Potato.

I agree with Thelonious, I would vote for the Devil’s Advocate alone (in light of the abbot’s ability to impose a vow of silence I don’t see how being unable to make a viable proposal for 2 days is really a new limitation).  The hot potato seems really likely to create to create cross spamming right as the potato is about to expire.

“And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread./ And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.”
Luke 4:3-4
