In the rule “Position” replace

Job Requrements: If there are at least 3 Workers with this Position, any Worker that has this Position may occasionally make a Story Post “Building the Machine” with a list of Pieces from the Created Pieces wiki page. Each Worker with this position may vote on this Story Post, and if a Majority of Workers with this Position vote FOR the Parts in the post are added to the either the List of Parts or List of Variables for the Machine.

There ain’t no more such thing as a Variable.

Also, Parts aren’t part of the Machine until they’re added to the Workbench (and, thus far, there exists no Position authorized to do this).

against I like the concept, but spikebrennan is correct. Post an updated version and you have my vote. We do need to get this game moving.

I just copied and pasted from what was currently there, leaving the basic wording as it was. Its not like I added “variable” back into the rule—it was already there.

Yes, “Positions” is currently broken.  Your proposal doesn’t fix it.  (If it did, I would gratefully vote FOR).

Yeah, positions got broke when Variables got removed and the workbench was created.  I like the ideas of the changes you made, but like Spike said, they don’t quite work out right with the current rules.

Why do we need the workbench? I thought the plan was the bypass it so that the rule remained to make Bob happy but it didn’t annoy the rest of us =P.

I liked being able to change positions.. but I guess I can write in Haiku, Lymeric, or Sonnet form anyways…

I’m not pushing for a workbench…I think that was Spikebrennan’s idea. I don’t mind having one, but I think the game would be fine either way.

I would really like to see something like this pass, because this dynasty needs a kick in the pants to get it moving. However, if we are going to modify broken rules we might as well fix them in the process.

Workbench was my idea.  Sniff, sniff, pout pout.  My widdle feelings is hurt.

Clucky:

05-15-2007 02:31:36 UTC

Ok. Whatever. Its part of the rules. I wasn’t *actually* trying to ignore it. Amnistar and I had just joked about doing so before =P.  against

Feel free to repropose a non-broken version of this someone.
