Declaration of Victory: Not even kidding

Reaches quorum with 12 votes. Purplebeard may post his Ascension Address.

Adminned at 03 Apr 2010 00:43:49 UTC

I have successfully smashed the system.

Let’s examine the rule named Riot!:

The Anarchist with the highest RIOT score on June 1st 2010 has achieved victory. If multiple Anarchists are tied for the highest RIOT score then they have all achieved victory. If no-one has declared victory by 12 noon on June 1st 2010, then all Anarchists have achieved victory.

The second sentence applies even if it isn’t June 1st.

Multiple Anarchists are tied for the highest RIOT score. Therefore, these Anarchists have all achieved victory. As I am one of them, I have achieved victory in the current dynasty.

for You’re right, as well. I wasn’t online yesterday, and now this happens… Are you going to be kind and pass the mantle back to Josh so he can try again?


02-04-2010 17:41:09 UTC

for  This is ridiculous

According to the sidebar, this DoV is “-2660 second old”. Sidebar bug? Daylight savings bug? I recommend waiting an extra hour before enacting/failing just in case.


02-04-2010 18:08:04 UTC

for  I don’t like the theme anyway.


02-04-2010 18:10:41 UTC

Yes, that’s just a bug. All my posts come from the future for some reason.

for Explicit author vote.

What now? Should we start fresh with a new theme, or shall we continue with this theme, with me as the new Establishment? Josh, would you have a problem with this? We could draw graffiti over the header image marking it as the second Dynasty of Purplebeard.

I won’t be unsporting about passing the mantle back to Josh if that’s the consensus, but personally, I believe this victory is fully in the spirit of a nomic.

“We could draw graffiti over the header image marking it as the second Dynasty of Purplebeard.”

We could also have a color scheme where I don’t have to highlight the text to read it!

PB, if you want the dynasty then I’m fine with you taking it and doing what you want with it. I only had vague ideas as to where this was going anyway :D

Well played. Awesome, shortest dynasty ever :D

Clucky: he/him

for Magnificent. Utterly magnificent.


02-04-2010 22:07:34 UTC

for Nice Job ;)

Josh: he/they

That’s quorum, so I guess this passes.

Just promise me one thing, Purplebeard: that you’ll keep my awesome colour scheme. It’s so beautiful…


02-04-2010 22:18:44 UTC

And my first game of blognomic is over within 48 hours…wow.


02-04-2010 22:35:03 UTC

@Hyronious: It’s still the same game.


02-04-2010 22:36:45 UTC

This isn’t the usual time..I..I think.

for if you promise to change the colours.


02-04-2010 23:34:01 UTC

for But, I like the super-awesome color scheme.


02-04-2010 23:46:29 UTC

This color theme was ok for April 1st, but please change it. :)

I would like a rule based Dynasty by the way.


03-04-2010 01:26:39 UTC

The colours are fine on my monitor…for a few minutes a day, anyway.


03-04-2010 02:26:09 UTC

Colours aren’t painful over here, but a bit silly still.

Btw Josh, this is one reason we discuss dynasty ideas between an enacted DoV and an AA lol.

Sorry for not consulting you before hand, Darknight, as you know you’re my first port of call for any advice and help that I need in these matters. “Lol”.

It wouldn’t have made any difference here anyway - it was a slip-up in writing the proposal, nothing more. Maybe one day I’ll start proof-reading these things properly…
