Proposal: Poetry in Motion

Reached quorum 6 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 04 Dec 2015 00:03:10 UTC

Enact a new rule, “Motions”:-

If a Proposal’s title includes the string “[Motion X]”, where X is the Letter of a Committee, then it is a Motion, and is considered to originate from that Committee.

A Motion originating from a Committee should only propose changes to the ruleset or gamestate which are instances of that Committee’s Power. If a Motion does not, then it is considered to be Out of Scope.

If a Motion has any non-Veto Votes from Clerks who are not Members of the Committee it originates from, then those Votes are ignored.

Motions are not considered to be Proposals for the purposes of the rule “Resolution of Proposals”. They neither count towards nor are restricted by the Proposal posting limit in the rule “Proposals”, but a Clerk may not post more than one Motion per day.

Enact a subrule of “Motions” called “Resolution”:-

Motion Quorum for a Motion is a Quorum of the Members of the Committee that the Motion originated from.

The oldest pending Motion may be enacted by any Admin (by updating the Ruleset and/or Gamestate to include the specified effects of that Motion, and then setting that Motion’s status to Enacted) if either of the following is true:

  • It has a number of FOR Votes that exceed or equal Motion Quorum, has been open for voting for at least 12 hours, is not Out of Scope, and has not been Vetoed or Self-Killed.
  • It has been open for voting for at least 48 hours, it has more than 1 valid Vote cast on it, more valid Votes cast on it are FOR than are AGAINST, is not Out of Scope, and it has not been Vetoed or Self-Killed.

The oldest pending Motion may be failed by any Admin, if any of the following are true:

  • It is Out of Scope.
  • It has been Vetoed or Self-Killed.
  • The number of Readers who are Members of its originating Committee and who are not voting AGAINST it is less than Motion Quorum.
  • It has been open for voting for at least 48 hours and cannot be Enacted.
