Proposal: Quorum Failures

Enacts 5-3 (Quorum 5) after every active Scribe voted on it. -Bucky

Add a new subrule to the rule “Offenses”.  Call it “Apathy” and give it the following text:

Whenever a proposal fails, if it had three or fewer valid votes on it and was neither self-killed nor vetoed, each Scribe has their Offenses incremented by one unless they authored or cast a vote on that proposal, or unidled or joined the game while it was pending.

We’ve had several 1-2 failures and are close to having a 1-0 failure.  Being unable to scrap together half a quorum of votes is unacceptable.

Note that the “cast a vote” language protects unresolved DEFs.

for Because people who don’t vote prolifically shouldn’t be the ones we let endorse Proposals, and all.

And, this is automagic, so people can’t take Offense to their Offenses being incremented by it.

@Brendan There can be people who do other things to not idle but still don’t vote. I don’t think it hurts to encourage voting.
