Proposal: Timing Out [Trivial]

Self-killed, Trivial—arth

Adminned at 13 Oct 2009 23:59:10 UTC

If “Slowing Fine” passed, replace “A player is fined two points each time a proposal times out on which they did not cast a FOR or AGAINST vote (excluding their own proposals).” with:-

A player is fined two points each time a proposal times out on which their vote was counted neither FOR nor AGAINST. (A proposal “times out” if it is failed after being open for voting for at least 48 hours, yet was neither self-killed nor had enough AGAINST votes that it could not be Enacted without one of those votes being changed.)

Per comments on Slowing Fine, this clarifies that players aren’t fined for self-kills or belatedly-processed straight fails.

imperial It’s better, but I’m still not a fan of fines for non-voting.

against because you’re still punishing unresolved DEFERENTIAL votes. And why force people to have an opinion?

Unresolved deferentials will be rare once they start deferring to the player with the highest score.

Note that this proposal reduces the punishment effects, it doesn’t add to them - this amendment prevents admin abuse of the “Slowing Fine” rule, and stops resolved DEFs from being unfairly fined.

OK, CoV for because it’s trivial.

against Self-kill to keep the queue going, as the proposal this fixes failed.
