Proposal: The Public Realm

Withdrawn. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 27 Mar 2024 19:54:03 UTC

Remove all but the first Public Criteria from the list in “Criteria”.

To the top of the list in “Scoring”, add a new bullet point:-

* If it is the responder’s own Snap, then for each Public Criteria that the Shot satisfies, the responder’s Score is increased by 3

In Upgrades, replace “A Snap which meets every Public Criteria” with:-

A Snap which includes a specific named entity that had its own Wikipedia page at Mon 18/03/24—09:00 UTC, in which at least one article of clothing worn by the posting Seeker at the time that the Snap was taken is visible, and which contains a message to the viewer

The concepts of Public and Private Criteria seem a bit disconnected. This makes Public into something that, like Private Criteria, you score - specifically, something you can score for each photo and are rewarded for following when composing it, rather than something you can entirely ignore once you’ve unlocked the everything-in-shot achievement.

This also cuts (for now) the list back down to just “photo taken outside”, as I’m not sure whether the group would want to see the entity/clothing/message aspects in every single photo that gets posted.

I could get behind the reorg or the public criteria.  However, I like that a shot needs to be something current (daily word) instead of a random photo taken at any time by the seeker.

The word of the day aspect is safe - it isn’t part of the Public Criteria list, so wouldn’t be affected by this amendment.

Apologies as the new guy has run into several learning points.

First, sorry for voting within the four-hour change window.  And also for missing the point clarified above. And….

I would now be a for but I have learned the blog does not allow comment edits.

I will move more slowly next time…..

Your subsequent vote supercedes your first one, at least, so your new vote does count!

That said, this does create a loophole whereby that development upgrade can now be claimed again…

against this would allow people who already got the first upgrade to get the new upgrade again
