Proposal: Or, we can do it like this

Sabotaged. Failed by Kevan.

In the rule “Injuries”, replace

An Injured Crewmember may not take any action under a dynastic rule that a rule declares Strenuous. A Disabled Crewmember may not take any action under a dynastic rule, nor cast votes on Missions or Trials, except for actions that a rule declares to be Cerebral.

with

An Injured Crewmember may not take any action under a dynastic rule that a rule declares Strenuous. A Disabled Crewmember may not take any non-Cerebral action under a dynastic rule, except for casting votes on Trials. They may not cast votes on Missions.

In the rule “Trials”, replace the first bulleted list with:

  • It has been open for voting for at least 12 hours and has a number of FOR votes that equals or exceeds Quorum.
  • It has been open for voting for at least 48 hours and has more FOR votes than AGAINST votes.

and the second bulleted list with:

  • It has been open for voting for at least 12 hours and has a number of AGAINST votes that equals or exceeds Quorum.
  • It has been open for voting for at least 48 hours and cannot be Enacted.

Trials at the moment need a Command Quorum to pass, full stop; if enough people ignore them (which has always happened so far), they fail.

This changes them to a) allow Disabled people to vote, b) allow them to be Enacted in the face of apathy if more than half the people who actually voted think they’re a good idea. (This seems to have been working well for proposals, which at least tend to come to a decisive end, rather than just failing due to apathy.)

I wonder if Trials have been failing due to apathy. Not voting on a Trial is a safe, unaccountable way of voting AGAINST, and I wonder if forcing that issue is useful. Opening Trials to the Disabled faction is a tricky one - I’m not sure how that would end up going.

imperial for now.

How strange. The Androids go to a bunch of effort to avoid Sabotaging my other proposal. Then they go Sabotage this one instead.
