Proposal: Weather again

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 27 Jan 2011 11:32:19 UTC

Add the object that can be found in proposal “It is not always summer!” to the main page of the Blog or to any page linked to it.
Add a new rule “Weather”:

The colony is said to be located in Central Park, New York City, NY, US.
The Weather can be Sunny, Rainy and Snowy.
The only way to define the current Weather is to check the Weather Box (WB). If in the picture under “Right now” there are rain drops or lightings, it may be changed to Rainy; if there are snow flakes to Snowy and if there is not any of them to Sunny.
To change the current weather, as a weekly action any Ant may create a new post with title containing “Weather Update” and the new Weather, indicating that the Weather becomes the condition shown on the WB, and linking screenshot of the whole WB. The WB clock in the picture shall prove that the picture has been taken at most 10 minutes earlier than the Weather Update posting. The weather will be that until next Weather Update post or anyway for no more than 48 hours from the last Update, after which it will become Sunny. A Weather Update post may contain the same Weather condition as the previous. The Sandbox Master may always post a Weather Update without need to follow the WB nor to add a screenshot. In that case no Weather Update can be posted by any Ant for 48 hours or until the Sandbox Master post a comment on his own Weather Update containing the against icon, or if it is in the text of the Update. If a Weather Update is said to be against the rules and thus invalid, an admin shall segnal it in the admin block of the said post.
The Weather Box is a Flash application that can be found linked to (or in) the main page.

In the rule Weather change the last sentence to reflect the actual location of the Weather Box, and link it.
Set the Weather to Sunny.

I hope it is not a problem to get and link screenshots. The weekly action is to prevent Weather battles that could become annoying, as weather changes quite faster than every 48 hours.
I’m posting many failing proposals, so if someone feel irritated by my too high posting frequency just tell me.

Or, someone can make three blog toppers and weekly if can be adjusted on a die roll. If possible, weekly it could change randomly, automatically. I’m not sure if that’s easy to do.

And proposing alot isn’t a bad thing ely. it just takes time to find the right idea forthe current dynasty. more proposals means we learn what we think will work, what won’t and what can be changed up.

Lord knows how many proposals I thought were awesome until someone pointed out the 39 things wrong with it {:0p

Still debating this one.

I think this can be streamlined and not require input from outside site widgets.
