Proposal: Order in the court

Vetoed. Josh

Adminned at 17 Feb 2013 08:25:46 UTC

Enact a new rule, “Elections”:

  As a weekly action, an Honourable member (the Poster) may post a Proposal beginning with the subject “Election:”, as long as no such proposal is currently pending.  In addition, the subject must include the name of an Honorable Member belonging to the same party as the Poster (the Target).  Resolution of such a proposal is as normal, except it can NOT be vetoed.  If such a proposal is enacted, then the the identity of the Speaker shall change to that of the Target.  At no time may there be more than one Speaker.

 

entertaining the idea of changing Speakers

for A new Dynasty wouldn’t begin, right?

No, it would be the same dynasty just with a different Speaker.

against Rule 2.1 says we can’t do this, and I like it that way.

Huh, I think that makes this proposal illegal.

I’m going to mark it such and see what happens!

I’m not going to mark it illegal, because we don’t mark proposals illegal when they attempt to change rules that don’t exist either. However, I will veto because if there is going to be another Speaker, it should be due to a victory.

I think as a point of etiquette that it would have been preferable for you to have CfJed rather than getting into an edit war, but the end effect seems much the same so never mind.

Fair enough.

Actually, no, there’s no way I could have CFJed this due to the game state problem (I couldn’t write a CFJ that resolved this such that it affected game state in an unambiguous fashion, unless the game state effect was tangential). A PoO would have done, though (sad that that rule has not been used more often :( )
