Proposal: You know my style is naughty

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Create a new dynastic rule named “Debate”, and give it the text:

Every Musician has an amount of Votes against them, a nonnegative integer tracked in the GNDT that defaults to 0. Use of the word “vote” in any dynastic rule is a reference to this rule and not to rule 1.5 “Votable Matters”.

A Musician may cast a vote against another Musician, effectively increasing by 1 the number of Votes against that other Musician, by making a post announcing the vote and updating the relevant GNDT stat, if they have not cast a vote in the last 96 hours.


Remove all irrelevant information from the GNDT, and create a new column named “Votes”.
Create a new dynastic rule named “An unpleasant feeling”, and give it the text:

There is a number, called Awkwardness, a nonnegative integer tracked in the GNDT in the Frontman’s Votes field. At the start of the dynasty the Awkwardness is 12. Whenever a Musician joins Blognomic, or unidles for the first time in the dynasty, the Awkwardness is increased by 1.

When a Musician has a number of Votes greater than or equal to the Awkwardness, the Frontman may Kick them out of the Band and reveal their music style.
Everytime a Musician is Kicked out of the Band, the Awkwardness drops by 1.
A Musician who has been Kicked out of the Band does not count as a Musician for the purpose of any other Dynastic Rule.

Please remember, the goal is to force your style on the band, not to be the last Musician.

Thanks to southpointingchariot for reviews on this.
And for the flavour.
And for the mechanics.

against You could use this to kick whomever you want out of the band at the start. (Everyone has 0 votes, awkwardness is zero)

“At the start of the dynasty the Awkwardness is 12.”

against One post per player per 96 hours? Seriously?

I don’t get why this can’t/shouldn’t be done directly in the GNDT.

Oh, right. Initially it was:

A Musician may cast a vote against another Musician, effectively increasing by 1 the number of Votes Against that other Musician, by making a post announcing the vote, if any of the following is true:
- they have never casted a vote
- someone has Reopened Voting since last time they casted a vote

If at any time, no vote has been casted for over 72 hours, any Musician may Reopen Voting by making a post which title contains “Voting is reopened”.
A Musician may cast a vote in the same post they used to Reopen Voting, in which case the vote is considered to have been casted after they have Reopened Voting.

Cut out the Open and Closed voting:

“A Musician may cast a vote against another Musician, effectively increasing by 1 the number of Votes against that other Musician, updating the relevant GNDT stat, if they have not cast a vote in the last 72 hours.”
