Proposal: Resting the Machine, take 2 (as a proposal!)

6-1. Reached quorum.

Adminned at 04 May 2007 14:26:51 UTC

in rule 2.3.2 “Variables” change the following:

*Name: The name by which the Variable is refered (and any abbreviations by which it may be refered).
*Creator: The name of the Worker(s) considered responsible for adding the Variable to the Machine.
*Possible States: A description of the possible states the variable may be in.  If appropriate, a description of the order in which the variable advances may be included.
*State: The current State of the Variable (which must always be one of the possible states described in the previous bullet-point).

to:

*Name: The name by which the Variable is refered (and any abbreviations by which it may be refered).
*Creator: The name of the Worker(s) considered responsible for adding the Variable to the Machine.
*Possible States: A description of the possible states the variable may be in.  If appropriate, a description of the order in which the variable advances may be included.
*State: The current State of the Variable (which must always be one of the possible states described in the previous bullet-point).
*Default State: A Constant which is the same as the State of the Variable when it is first added to the Machine.

This gives us the option of reseting the entire machine, or pieces of the machine by using their Default States.

Theres nothing that prevents a Part’s effect from changing a variable’s Default State. Not that that’s really bad or anything.. just thought I should point it out.

Oh and.  imperial

well, either there’ll be a good reason for the default state being changed by a part, or it won’t do that :p.  I just wanted a simple way for someone to refer, in the future, to a parts “default state”

YESMAN needs fixing.

imperial Note that no one can claim the YESMAN award for a Proposal unless the CEO actually votes (verb).  Amnistar’s vote (noun) may _count_ as FOR, but e has not actually voted (verb).

CoV against Not compatible with currently existing Variables on the Created Pieces page.

Amnistar:

Not true.  Parts have yet to be added to the Machine, ergo, there is nothing to be put in Default State.  When said parts are added, Default State should be set to whatever the Current State of the Variable is.,

Amnistar:

err…variables rather, still applies

alethiophile:

Do all those IMPs count as FORs because Amnistar’s vote counts as For?

Amnistar:

05-04-2007 21:16:13 UTC

I believe so.

alethiophile:

05-04-2007 21:19:27 UTC

OK, then. I can enact this right now.
