Proposal: Rotten Eggs

Timed out and passed, three votes to two with one unresolved deferential vote. Josh

Remove the sentence “This action cannot be performed more than once per generation by an Ape with any Intelligence genes.” from the ruleset.

This strangely glowing pond effect could mean a couple of things (that an Ape with Intelligence can take the action once and other Apes can take it repeatedly; or that once an Ape with Intelligence genes has taken it, no other Apes with Intelligence genes may take it), and neither really seems necessary.

I like the idea that only the Apes without intelligence would touch the pond more than once. That said, I agree that this rule and the one about the “Coming of age ritual” tradition are ambiguously worded. A clean-up proposal might be useful. against

Oops; I’ll make sure to put the vote symbol up front in the future.

I suppose that the idea is for the smarter Apes to stay away from strange looking and potentially dangerous looking things.  If its possibly part of their culture I don’t really see a reason to restrict them when I think of it.  for

The theming is good, it just seems like something we might regret locking ourselves out of, once Intelligence genes appear in the pool.

imperial After reading the arguments, I’m still conflicted. A CoV is likely.

Fair point. I’ll keep my vote against for now, but I may reconsider if we do get to a point where we feel locked up. In the meantime, I want to encourage the Push action if it gets passed. (https://blognomic.com/archive/monkey_business_without_the_tails )
