Proposal: Your superiors are always right

Times out and Fails 6-12, with 6 arrows. PP to Citizen Kyre-R-BLN-1. - lilomar

Adminned at 01 Aug 2010 08:40:03 UTC

Add a RED rule entitled “Sedition” with text as follows:

Whenever any proposal that creates, modifies, or repeals any dynastic rules is enacted, the admin who enacts said proposal shall assign one Treason Point within an hour of enacting said proposal to any citizens who have a lower clearance level than the proposal’s author that have votes of AGAINST said proposal.

Wait, Friend Computer, didn’t we just cover this the other day?
No, Citizen - and any claims otherwise are commie treason.

And for those who weren’t following my attempts at this proposal yesterday, you can still vote DEFERENTIAL if you wish to side with a high programmer’s vote of AGAINST without incurring treason points via this clause.

against Ugh, I hate rules that punish for voting against a dangerous proposal.

@Qwazukee - If it’s really a BAD, Dangerous proposal, then you can just vote DEFERENTIAL and side with the high programmer’s vote of AGAINST. After all, he knows what is best, right?

Kyre:

Or you can always just get a quorum of AGAINST votes too, then the proposal won’t get enacted and nobody will get Treason points.

for Currently most Citizens are RED, therefore this does not do that much, but it‘s nice for later use.

Votes of DEF that prove to be AGAINST are still counted by this Rule. However, it would not apply retroactively to this Proposal.

@Qwazukee - Is that the standard interpretation of how DEF votes are counted? If so, looks like I’ll have to s/k and edit this proposal one more time.

Qwazukee:

“A Vote of DEFERENTIAL is a Vote of no opinion, or of faith in the decision of the High-Programmer. The Vote will count as the same as the High-Programmer’s Vote”

By my reckoning, it “counts” for all purposes as the same as the High-Programmer’s Vote.

against As I said before, this just rewards camping out on proposals so that you can change your vote at the last minute if necessary.  It’s not fun.

People forget that proposals are used sometimes for very serious purposes. Such as making a playre an admin, making an important core rule change, etc.  against

Don’t admin this yet; I think that the market key proposal was misadminned (in that the DEF votes were counted incorrectly).
