Proposal: Try Try Again

Self-killed. Failed by Brendan.

Adminned at 10 Feb 2015 18:12:28 UTC

In the rule “Clearance”, add a subrule “Clearance Modifier”:

The Ship’s Computer will privately track a Clearance Modifier for each Android. The Clearance Modifier is an integer and can be negative. If the Clearance Modifier has not been set for a specific Android, it defaults to zero. Each time an Android Sabotages a proposal, their Clearance Modifier is lowered by one. Each time a Demand Proposal is enacted, the Android who submitted the Demand Proposal will have their Clearance Modifier increased by one.

When determining the Android with the highest Clearance, the Android with the highest total of Clearance and Clearance Modifier shall be considered to have the highest Clearance.

And add a new subrule to “Androids” titled, “Identities”

No earlier than February 15th, 2015, the computer shall send a private message to each Android player informing them of the usernames of each Android. Starting on February 15th, 2015, whenever a Crewmember becomes an Android, whether through conversion, scanning, or any other process, the Ship’s Computer shall send a private message to the new Android informing them of the usernames of all other Androids and a private message to each existing Android informing them of the username of the new Android.


Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Do you not like the idea at all, or do you think it favors one side too much?

I don’t care much about the idea, but if I’m honest, mainly I just don’t like the repeated reproposal of mechanics that have already been failed, in some cases multiple times.

True, it is obnoxious reproposing similar mechanics. But to be fair, one of them was failed because the rule was written incorrectly and wouldn’t have had the intended effect and the other was failed because we were getting rid of the Trust metaphor.

No one has yet voiced a complaint about the actual mechanic.
