Proposal: Proposal Management

Self-killed. -RaichuKFM

Add a new rule called “Proposal Management” which contains

If a proposal relies on a proposal that is has not been enacted then it must mention the proposal it changes or amends. (ex. If Proposal A changes something in Proposal B then Proposal must state “this proposal relies on Proposal B”)
If the required proposal is vetoed or self-killed then the dependent proposal is failed by an admin


I’m in the middle of writing something that may depend on this rule, and realized that their may be a conflict if the amendment is enacted but the proposal it changes is not. This hopefully provides actions that the mod can take in this event (which should happen that often, I think.)

I think it’s a good idea to formalize dependency.  But I don’t think the appropriate response to a dependency that isn’t noticed is to immediately render it illegal.

Also, proposals rarely change other proposals, rather than the rules another proposal creates.

This proposal is mostly for adding on to proposals that have a base set of rules. One example would be a market with fixed prices, but another proposal would change it to have fluctuating prices. This would help in cases of proposal linking where three proposals depend on a single proposal and rather than having a full pending proposal queue and each proposal would voted upon even though the base proposal has been vetoed or self-killed.
That was my aproximate thinking on the subject.
