[Nomic02] three new proposals
Thu, 16 Jan 2003 13:11:01 -0000
I propose the following three new rules:
"Players may change the details of the map by unanimous consent."
(Essentially, now that the map is part of the gamestate, I don't think it's
necessary to have to pass a new rule every time we want to change the map.
With the rules that currently exist, plus this new rule, changing the map
could be done using the same mechanism as changing the rules, but the list
of rules wouldn't have to become cluttered with the details of the map.)
"A specified subset of players may be deemed to have reached unanimous
consent on an issue in the same manner as specified in Rule 10, except that
only players in the specified subset are counted for determining the
outcome of the proposal."
(This is just a support rule for the rule below. I think the wording is
fairly airtight, but it's possible I've missed a loophole somewhere.)
"Any player who is found to have intentionally deceived another player
about the current state of the game may be issued a demerit by unanimous
consent of the other players."
(Given that at the moment there's no official record of the state of the
game, there's nothing preventing players from lying about it, and it'd be
nice if we didn't all have to be paranoid and keep our own copies of
everything. It's implicit in this rule that players should attempt to be
truthful, but I didn't want to make that part of the rule, since that would
make it possible to break it. This seems the best way.)
