Proposal: Professor Unwin

Reached quorum 4 votes to 3. Enacted by Kevan.

To the rule “Teacher Training”, add the following bullet point to the bulleted list:-

During the preceding 48 hours, three or more Students made a comment that included the question “Huh?”, on the same post, and that post was either made by the Professor or included a comment from him. Such “Huh?” comments should only be made in response to the Professor being unnecessarily oblique or mysterious.

Making deliberately unclear and confusing comments can be useful if you want to tactically disorientate your opponents, but unless we’re playing an intentionally cryptic dynasty (which I don’t think we are) it’s not very appropriate from an Emperor who’s meant to be leading the game and guiding uncertain voters. Bucky’s done it a couple of times so far.

against I don’t want this to devolve into a “our leader sucks” themed dynasty.

If the theme is “how to make a good dynasty”, good Emperor behaviour is a very big part of that. It’s not yet clear whether the Teacher Training rule will reward an Emperor who breaks a minimum of these guidelines, or punish one who breaks too many.

for Bucky: the obvious response seems to be “then stop sucking”. I still don’t know where this dynasty is going and that’s a big problem.
