Proposal: The Agenda

Passed 12-2, reaches quorum. Enacted by Angry Grasshopper. Items 1-6, and 8 to be added to the Agenda.

Adminned at 05 Mar 2006 17:50:39 UTC

Add a new rule entitled “The Agenda” with the following text:

This rule is the list of stuff to do in this metadynasty.

All text in this rule outside of this paragraph must be italicized.

In addition, each Swashbuckler who votes for this proposal must put the numbers of all of the following items they think should be on the agenda.  If an item receives at least three votes, add it to the “agenda” rule in italics (without the number).

1)Fix the loophole that was almost used by “Hell Freezes Over.”

2)Fix the loophole used by Kevin to declare victory.

3)Fix the naming conflict problems.

4)Add a section to the wiki for essays on subjects related to Blognimic.

5)Add a part of the history section for the archiving of posts with great literary, philisophical, historical or humor value.

6)Limit the number of DoVs by a single Gostak.

8)Thoroughly enjoy ourselves.

Cheese may also be granted for bringing agenda items to pass.  Also, further proposals may alter the list.

Err… it might have been wiser to say “all text outside of this sentence must be italicised”, but I guess it’s fine as is.

for Two, three, five, the non-existent seven, eight.

What loophole in Hell Freezes Over?

The loophole in 1 is the one which would have allowed any admin to admin it in timed out 1-0 and declare victory if hiatus had lasted 48 hours.

The allowing the whole paragraph to be unitalicized means that a sentence could be added reading “proposals that do nothing but add italicized text to this rule have a quorum of three and time out in 12 hours” or something like that

Does this even need to be a proposal? Just stick the list up on the wiki and make proposals according to what matters to you.

But, sure, OK.  for And there doesn’t seem to be any sense in limiting ourselves, so all of them.

Yeah, CoV, agreed with Purplebeard.
Just stick it on the Wiki somewhere.

against If it weren’t italicized it might be good, since we’re talking about rewarding people who fix items.  But italicized stuff doesn’t really exist.


03-05-2006 04:49:00 UTC

Then propose to unitalicize it, change the unitalicized section or something.

Elias IX:

03-05-2006 19:05:02 UTC

for CoV, though I think every agenda item has 3 votes already.

for nice. 1,2,3,4,5
