306

Proposed by: Exile

Proposition:

WHEREAS it at the moment is almost as easy to change an immutable as a mutable rule, and

WHEREAS the original intention of the game of nomic did not include this component, and

WHEREAS other Nomics have good solution,

LET IT BE ENACTED, THAT

  1. Every Rule has got a Power rating. This rating is an integer > 0 (zero).
  2. Every Proposal has got a Power rating. This rating is an integer > 0 and is set by the proposer.
  3. Any conflict in the rules is resolved in the following order:
    a) If the two conflicting rules have different Powers, let the one with the higher rating be active
    b) If they have the same Power, the conflict is resolved according to the rules already present and dealing with such problems.
  4. Any rule change can only be performed, if the change has got a Power rating higher than the Power rating of the rule that is to be changed.
    a) If a rule change changes several Rules, it has to have a higher Power rating higher than the highest member of the set of Power ratings of the rules that are to be changed.
  5. For a rule change to be enacted, the quote of votes in favour to votes against has to exceed the Power rating.

    To clarify 5, consider the case of a rule with Power rating 1. This can be
    changed by a simple majority. A rule with Power rating 3 has to have 75%
    majority for a change and so on.
  6. The points awarded to the players is not to be affected by the Power
    rating of the proposal.

Power 2

Proposed by: Exile

Proposal:

Amend Rule 305 to contain these changed paragraphs:

  1. Every Rule has got a Power rating. This rating is an integer > 0 (zero) or the rating <infinite>.
  2. Every Proposal has got a Power rating. This rating is an integer > 0 or the rating <infinite> and is set by the proposer.
  3. For a rule change to be enacted, the quote of votes in favour to votes against has to exceed the Power rating.

    To clarify 5, consider the case of a rule with Power rating 1. This can be changed by a simple majority. A rule with Power rating 3 has to have 75% majority for a change and so on. An <infinite> classed rule can only be changed by absolute unity.

Power 2

Proposed by: Exile

Proposal:

To make sure that the rules and the game custom are compatible, I would like to change rule 114 to the following, motivated by the fact that I recieve the votes of the players attending my school more often face to face than I recieve them by e-mail:

Players may vote either for or against any proposal during the prescribed voting period. Voters should inform the First Speaker of their vote before the end of the voting period. Players who do not vote within the prescribed period shall be deemed to have abstained.

309

Proposed by: Babylon

Power 1

Proposal:

Any player may delegate hir vote to another player by stating on the bulletin board that s/he wishes to do so.  If a vote has been delegated and the delegating player abstains hir vote is counted as the same as the vote of the player to whom it has been delegated.  This is continuous, so if player A delegates to Player B, who delegates to Player C and A and B both abstain C's vote counts as three votes.

310

Proposed by: Exile

Power 1

Proposal:

Let the rule constructed by P309 explicitly state that it is required by the player that has control over other players votes to submit each vote individually. It should not be necessary to put all votes on the same Yeah/Nay/Abstain --- thus it is possible to vote one Yeah and one Nay.

Furthermore, the vote still belongs to the player delegating it, and thus any points generated by it will go to the player who delegated rather than the player in control. It should also be possible to keep some votes and delegate some.

Power 5

Proposed by: Exile

Power 5

Proposal:

Reformulate R110 to the EMERGENCY -delimited text:

EMERGENCY

Rule 110/1
     Power 2
     Winning A Cycle

Let the Game be divided into Cycles. Each Cycle has at its end a winner. The state of affairs that constitutes winning the cycle may not be changed from achieving n points to any other state of affairs. However, the magnitude of n and the means of earning points may be changed, and rules that establish a winner when play cannot be continued may be enacted and be amended or repealed. The winner of the last cycle may become the new First Speaker for the next game, assuming all current duties allocated to the First Speaker.

Inbetween the end of a cycle and the reboot of the next, there is room for proposing emergency proposals. These may only abolish rules and may only be taken by unanimity.
