Proposal: X Marks the Spot

posted by Kevan at 21 Jan 2006 02:11:52 am UTC

Passed 9-0, reaches quorum. Enacted by Angry Grasshopper.  Adminned at 21 Jan 2006 08:41:52 pm UTC

Is my clock buggy, or is there something bad (read: illegal) going on?
In any case, the Ruleset wasn’t quite amended correctly:  see the beginning of the second paragraph of rule 2.9

What rule did I break this time? ;)

I see the error on 2.9—looks like something went weird with the cut-and-paste. Thanks for pointing that out.

I can’t tell if you’re serious….  Anyway, my point was that the proposal seems to have been illegally encacted, since neither of the two conditions in law 1.5 had been satisfied.

>If the oldest pending Proposal’s FOR votes exceed or equal Quorum and that Proposal has been open for voting for at least 12 hours…

Hrm. At the time I enacted ‘X Marks the Spot’ it was the oldest pending proposal (the previous being self-killed, and the one before that vetoed), so it’s last on the queue.

It has a quorum of FOR votes. Now we need at least twelve hours.

20:41 - 02:00 = 18:14, or eighteen hours time difference.

Where’s the error?

I’m really sorry.  I’m so used to UTC times being on a 24 hour clock, so I didn’t notice the pm time of administration.

Aha! I was wondering if that’s what it was.

Don’t worry about it, I’d rather have you point out my mistakes than be quiet about it.
