Add a new rule, “Easter Essays”:

April 24 is Easter Essay Day. At any time before this date, any Sheep may contact the Chairsheep privately and send them an essay of at least 400 words. This essay should be a historical, philosophical or political essay on Blognomic. If a single Sheep sends multiple Essays this way, only the last shall be counted.

At their earliest convenience on or after Easter Essay Day, the Chairsheep should create a story post with “Essay Voting” in the title. The body of this post must contain the complete texts, or links to the complete texts, of the legal Essays they have received, each with an ascending number in front (starting with 1). The Chairsheep should not divulge the identities of the Essay writers in this post. Each Sheep may add a comment to this post, or an “essay vote”, containing exactly one number. If one Sheep adds more than one essay vote, only the last counts. When 48 hours have passed after the Essay Voting post was created, the Chairsheep may resolve it once by revealing the identities of the Essay writers and awarding 5 Baabucks to the writer(s) of the Essay(s) with the most essay votes.

I like Essays. We should write more.

imperial I find the essay thing a bit navel-gazey, but I’m not going to stand in anyone’s way.

against I’m not really that interested in writing them, I’m afraid.

against It seems that giving a major advantage for writing these is unpopular, so AGAINST it is. However, if anyone wants to go write one anyway, I may see if I can come up with some appropriate reward that I can do in my capacity as an ordinary Sheep.
