Proposal: Quite Trite

Enacted 5-0 by Chiiika.

In the rule “Scoring”, in the bulleted list after the text “Upon doing so:”, add this as the first bullet point in that list:

* For each Private Criteria in the response that contains any of the nouns listed in the Trite mentioned in that Shot post, that Private Criteria cannot be used to increment any Seeker’s Score for that shot, and the remaining bullet points in this list must be ignored with regard to that Private Criteria.

I still think the Trite list has its place.

Why not just update the definition of Saturated to exclude trite criteria as well?

I’m not convinced this works. Nothing in the rules would prevent you from also mentioning trite criteria as well, and then it would still score.

The reference to the Trite needs to be per Snap so that Seekers can’t modify the Trite after a Snap is posted and then impact the Private Criteria used to score on that Snap. Any modifications to the Trite only impact the Snaps after the modification. Because of this, I can’t really add this to the definition of Saturated.

I reworded the Proposal so that it becomes a bullet point in the Scoring and clearly indicates that the Private Criteria containing any Trite nouns cannot be used to increment score and the other bullet points are ignored for that specific Private Criteria.
