Proposal: The Golden Envelope, Please

Reached quorum of FOR votes (14-0) - Devenger

Adminned at 25 Mar 2009 13:46:30 UTC

If “Signature Prop” passed, undo its effects.

Reword Rule 2.5 (Best in Show Votes) to:-

Once an Act has been declared Finished by the Producer, all Scripters who contributed to that Act may vote on which Scene they feel fitted best into each of the following categories, each of which has a Popularity award:-

  • Best Scene (+1 Popularity)
  • Worst Scene (-1 Popularity)
  • Best Use of an Signature Prop (+0.5 Popularity)
  • Best Supporting Actor (+0.5 Popularity)

(A Scripter cannot vote on a Scene which didn’t use a Signature Prop, for “Best Use of an Signature Prop”; nor can they vote on a Scene which didn’t include Stunt Casting, for “Best Supporting Actor”.)

Scripters may only vote for one Scripter per category, and may not vote for themselves. Once the votes have reached 50% of the contributing Scripters, the Producer may declare voting to be closed. The Scripter (or Scripters if there is a tie) who receive the most valid votes in each category have their Popularity adjusted as specified, for that category.

In Rule 2.6 (Popularity), replace “represented by any integer (may be negative)” with “represented by a number”, and replace “(regardless of whether or not it is negative)” with “(rounding it down to the nearest whole number, and regardless of whether or not it is negative)”.

for this is better than the “Signature Prop” proposal by itself.

for yeah this is probably an improvement on my idea, but I think +0.5 is too low, as it makes no difference on its own

Ah, looks like I put my flavour text in the wrong box, I meant to explain my thinking behind the 0.5. To repeat it: “Merging Influenza’s prop award into the post-act voting, and lowering it to 0.5 Popularity (simply using the prop at all shouldn’t be as impressive as writing the best scene).”

for I’d prefer if there was also ‘Worst Use of a Prop’ - make using them randomly less silly. Or something.

against 0.5 is not an integer.
