Proposal: Spice of Life

Withdrawn. Failed by JonathanDark.

Adminned at 12 Mar 2024 15:57:15 UTC

Add the following to Scoring after “a Seeker may make a post in the story post category with the title of their choice which includes a single Authentic Shot”

and declares which (if any) non-expired Public Criteria the shot meets. Such a post is known as a Snap.

and after “the poster gains Score equal to the number of Criteria declared met in response to that post” add

plus the number of non-expired public criteria that met the shot (using the list of public criteria and their expiration status at the time the shot was posted )

Add the following the first Paragraph of “Criteria”

Each Public Criteria also has an Expiration Date which is tracked next to it in the list of Public Criteria. If it after the Expiration Date for a Public Criteria, it is considered to be Expired. Any Seeker may remove an Expired Public Criteria from the list of Public Criteria at any time.

Set the Expiration Date of every Public Criteria to be one week from the time this proposal is enacted.

Add the following subrule to “Criteria” called “New Public Criteria”

If at least three Snaps have been posted, then as a weekly action a Seeker may add a new Public Criteria of their choosing, provided none of three most recently posted Snaps contain Shots which meet it and provided it is not equivalent to any existing non-expired Public Criteria. The expiration date of this new public criteria is one week after the action is performed

In “Criteria” replace “identical” with “equivalent”

“check if a shot is expired” should be criterion, no?

I feel like the “The Shot was taken in an outside location” criterion should be one without an expiration date

I think if we want people to take outside shots only, we should make it a hard requirement and not just something you score points for

imperial On the fence on this one; I’ll defer to the group. I feel like some persistence to flatten out the variance of the large amount of invisible gamestate would work better, although I do like having players add public criteria themselves according to a framework.

for And let’s make “outside” a hard requirement.

@Josh how does the persistence help? I guess you could plan some shots ahead of time and can’t do that if public criteria go away, but as you can’t actually take them until the proper day I’m not sure that is too big of a deal

The freedom of players being able to write “a new Public Criteria of their choosing” seems like it would allow the enacting admin to win the game (or rise again as the Dark One, etc).

Ach, how quickly we forget about text injection scams.

against per Kevan. Would accept if it had a validation step
