Proposal: The Line Starts Here

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Make a new rule titled “Qing” with the text

Each Resident has a Penalty, which is an integer between 0 and 24 tracked in the GNDT. If a number of hours equal to a Resident’s penalty has passed since that Resident had the opportunity to take an item from a Crate, that Resident is skipped for the purposes of that Crate and no longer needs to take an item. A Resident who is skipped has their Penalty reduced by 25%. Supplies cannot alter a Resident’s Penalty.
A Resident may make an Absent blogpost which detail either a time interval or a number of future crates where if it becomes their turn to take an item they’ll voluntarily skip their turn. Resident’s whose turns were skipped in this manner do not have their Penalty altered when skipped. The author of that blogpost may void it by making a comment containing “HERE!”

In Crates append

For a Crate, once all Residents either take an item or were skipped the Government randomly assigns remaining items to Residents which were skipped. The taking action is considered to have been done by that particular Resident but is performed by the Government.

Sometimes people, like me, know they will be absent but it wouldn’t be long enough to become idle

Hmm, with no default value specified, Penalty is going to default to zero and randomise whatever Crate we’re on.


Hourly limits are neat, but might be overthinking it. I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with Supplies affecting Penalty, which makes me wonder if we could just tie it to Alertness instead: Alertness zero is “asleep” and anyone can give you random stuff - and if you haven’t picked something for 24 hours, your Alertness drops to zero.

oh that was a mistake, I meant for it to default to 24; I don’t think it could be just a straight 24 hours from when the crates became available though: because of alertness, people ahead of you could run the timer to 24 hours before you had a chance to pick.
