Proposal: Tech Ownership Correction Take 2

reached a quorum, final vote 7-0—Yoda
4 votes included the optional text, so the add-on passed.

Replace “A DDA Member or Planar Entity may own zero or more pieces of Space Technology (abbr. Tech).” in the first paragraph of the rule 2.4 Technology with

A DDA Member or Planar Entity may be the owner of zero or more pieces of Space Technology (abbr. Tech). DDA Members and Planar Entities may only acquire or lose Tech by way of a successful proposal or as described by a rule.

If half of all counted FOR votes contain the phrase “that wording will do”, all DDA Members lose ownership of any Techs they currently own.

If I’ve got the wording right this time, then all will be right in the world again…ish. If I have got it wrong again, I reckon Amnistar can keep his damn Tech, we can at least fix the rule hole.

interestingly enough?  In order for this to work exactly half the votes need to have That wording will do in it.

With that in mind…

for That wording will do.

Actually, half can mean half or more, and here’s how:

Say 8 players vote for this proposal and 6 of them include the optional text.  Technically, 4 (half) did include the text, so it will pass.

Amnistar: he/him

oooh, clever, that is true, I suppose.  But then it aslo could not mean half or more.  in that half of 8, 4, did not vote FOR, 6 did.

Meh, it’s not really that big of adeal :P
