Proposal: Restriction on Administrative Actions

Unpopular, 2-8. Josh

Adminned at 12 Jan 2023 22:13:37 UTC

Amend the Core Rule entitled Fair Play by appending the following list item to the sole list:

  • A person with administrative, moderation, or other heightened access to the software running or supporting BlogNomic should not take any action using such heightened access for the purpose of acquiring or maintaining gameplay advantage unless any of the following is true:
    • Such action is required or explicitly permitted by the rules or required to implement an action required or explicitly permitted by the rules.
    • A reasonable, impartial, and prudent external observer would deem such action necessary or reasonable for the purpose of supporting, moderating, or administering BlogNomic or such software.

Rephrasing of https://blognomic.com/archive/expected_behaviors_can_be_sabotage_core with stricter elements for violation.

I maintain that it’s well-formed but I’ll rephrase.

Limiting this to “acquiring” gameplay advantage suggests that it doesn’t apply to giving another person gameplay advantage?
