Proposal: Virtual Victories

Reaches quorum and passes, 10-0. Josh

Adminned at 13 Sep 2012 10:11:14 UTC

Add a new Dynastic rule to the Ruleset.  Call it “Grading” and give it the following text:

Each Student has a non-negative integer number of Achievements, tracked in the GNDT.  New Students start with no Achievements.

Rules can cause Students to Score (by saying that the Student Scores) if and only if that Rule has not caused that Student to score earlier in the current dynasty.  When a Rule causes a Student to Score, that Student gains an Achievement.  Students cannot Score in any other manner. When a Student Scores, they gain an Achievement and should brag about it in a blog post. Achievements should not be awarded in any other manner.

This Rule takes precedence over other dynastic rules for the purpose of determining when or whether a Student Scores.

Set each Student’s Achievements to 0.

Points off for singular/plural confusion, paragraph 2, sentence 1.

Although “When a Rule causes a Student to Score, that Student gains an Achievement.” is a problematically automagical; you invisibly gain the Achievement even if you (and every other player) failed to realise that the Score was triggered.

You’re also dishing out two Achievements per Score (“When a Rule causes a Student to Score, that Student gains an Achievement.” plus “When a Student Scores, they gain an Achievement and should brag about it”).

Better to fix them with a patch (seeing as they are not imminently abusable) than send a good proposal into a cycle of redrafting / revoting.
