Proposal: Orange Crop Forecasts

Times out and passes at 8-1. -Purplebeard

Adminned at 04 May 2011 01:03:26 UTC

If the Proposal titled “Mass Inflation” and the Proposal titled “For what it is Worth.” both failed, this Proposal does nothing.

Add a new rule, “Market Fluctuations”:

At any time, but only if this action has not been performed since the last Fluctuation, the Market may secretly determine A=300-DICE600 for each Corporation. If, for any reason, no value of A has been determined for an existing Corporation, the Market may do so at any time. As a weekly action, the Market may Fluctuate by adding each value of A to the Worth of the corresponding Corporation. They are encouraged to perform this action each Friday.

At any time, an Investor may spend 25 Credits to privately ask the Market for a Tip on a Corporation, or may spend 50 Credits to privately ask the Market for Inside Information on a Corporation. The Market shall respond at their earliest convenience. If asked for a Tip, they shall give the requesting Investor the sign of A for that Corporation (positive, negative or zero). If asked for Inside Information, they shall instead give the requesting Investor the exact number of A for that Corporation.

Yes, I know zero is technically signless.

Secret Dice Rolls?

Or a 600 sided die. Or a random number generator.
I think since it expressely specifies “secretely” it may be considered free from Glossary Definition. Maybe not.

Er, I just used DICE600 as shorthand for “take a random integer from a uniform probability distribution over all integers between 1 and 600”, but I guess the term does have some baggage attached. I’ll just use an off-site RNG for this like I intended (unless anyone objects via CfJ), which is probably the closest equivalent we have to ‘secretly’ rolling DICE anyway.

Hmmm. I see this is stew is gaining flavor.
