Proposal: Supply Transfer

Self-killed. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 24 May 2017 23:55:16 UTC

Append to Supplies:

“An explorer may give another explorer at the same camp supplies or dog sleds by decreasing their value and increasing the other explorer’s value by the same amount in the GNDT.”

It took everything in me not to use the words “by announcement” while writing that rule. Agorans are weird.

Using the <blockquote> tags makes it look nicer.
Please read so that you don’t reinvent the wheel.
Maybe being able to transfer supplies from and to a Camp’s supply is a good idea.

And if you haven’t read you can edit a post up to 6 hours if nobody’s voted on it.

Not sure if this is different from the Agora game you’re used to.

Thanks. How would we regulate transferring from a camp’s supply? We can’t just let anyone grab all the supplies.

Carrying capacity seems like a good idea. No limit to taking but you can only hold so much on your person/sled.

Also you didn’t have to self kill this proposal, you could have just edited it to be your revisions.

Oops, our posts intersected such that I didn’t see your comment on editing before I self-killed.

For the record, Agora uses a mailing list, so you can’t edit your posts. You simply retract and re-issue a proposal if you need to change it (it is common to informally share a proposal and get feedback before even officially proposing it, in which case you don’t even need to retract).

Please read the words of Kevan for some people’s stance on doing proposals that way.
