Proposal: We’re Time-Travelers, right?

4-8. Failed by Chronos Phaenon. Cannot be enacted without Cov.

Adminned at 06 Jul 2006 10:39:09 UTC

Add to rule Arrow of Time:

Whenever a Local Proposal is enacted or failed, its title, text and each Traveler’s vote shall be recorded in this wiki page in the same manner as the example proposal.

Each Traveler may change eir vote on these enacted or failed Local Proposals, if e would be allowed to do so if the proposal was still open, by changing or adding eir vote in the wiki page (for the purposes of this paragraph, a Veto is a vote). E must then enact or fail that Local Proposal retroactively, if the new vote tally would change the outcome of the proposal, by applying or reverting its effects on the subrule(s) of this rule, and by making a post to the front page stating the new outcome.

Revert any changes made to this wiki page since this Proposal was posted.

against Good idea; too much work for us vote changers.  Non-admins may have difficulty.

against I thought of retroactive votechanging, but it’s way too messy.  It’s not always easy to tell how a change should be reverted, either.  As far as proposals are concerned, I’d like to keep the instantaneous history-changing out.

against “Retroactively” is a nightmare, even for time travellers.
