Proposal: People do not like fees

Reached quorum 12 votes to 3. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 05 Apr 2011 02:41:47 UTC

If rule Oddities exists, change the last two paragraphs in rule Oddities to:

Any Station with one or more Oddities or a pending Odd Proposal related to it shall be considered Odd.
A Normal (not Odd) Station may become Odd only by Odd Proposals. Odd Proposal are posted in the category “Proposal”, start with the word “Odd:” and do not count as Proposals for the purpose of the first sentence in rule 1.3 “Proposals”.
The only effect of an Odd Proposal shall be adding an Oddity to a Normal Station. Any Player may only write Odd Proposals related to the Normal Station they are in, if any. That Station shall be named in the title of the Proposal.

When an Odd Proposal is enacted, the Player who wrote it gets 2 Tickets. When an Odd Proposal is failed, the author loses 3 Tickets, and every Player that voted against it loses one Ticket.

Copied and pasted without the so much hated sentence.

imperial Thinking about it some more, I’m not entirely sure that flooding the market with tickets, making hops much more accurate, is entirely desirable. Also I tend to take a slightly conservative view on incentives that affect the way that people vote.

The current rule already has the same ticket mechanisms - this is just (I think) reintroducing the idea that Oddities can only be introduced by Odd Proposals, not by normal proposals or CfJs.

Voting incentives can be a bit troublesome, though. It seems unhelpful to be discouraging players from voting against a bad proposal, here.

imperial Not sure I care for the “those who voted against it lose a ticket” bit, but the rest is solid.

imperial Illegal per 1.3?

Indeed, Ely seems to already have two (non-odd) proposals pending, I’m going to mark this as illegal then.

[William, Florw] The voting disincentives are already in the ruleset, this proposal is not adding them.

Ah, I see.  In that case,  imperial.
