- An Official Document is "short-lived" if that
document is known to have finite lifetime. An
Official Document that is not "short-lived" is
- A Resolution is a short-lived Official Document describing a
modification to any long-lived Official Document except the
ruleset. Furthermore, no Resolution may contain wording that
would cause any player to lose points or TUCs as a direct
result of passage of that Resolution.
- To Suggest a Resolution, the Player must distribute a message
to all Players stating "I suggest the following Resolution", a
description of the Official Document to be modified, and the
modification being suggested.
- A Suggested Resolution gets voted on immediately after it is
distributed. The Player Suggesting the Resolution will be the
votekeeper. The Player Suggesting the Resolution may not vote.
The valid votes are "FOR" and "AGAINST".
- If "FOR" wins the vote, the Resolution is passed, and the
modification described in the Resolution will take effect as
soon as the vote has been completed.
- Resolutions cease to exist at the end of their voting period.
- The Resolution Record is an Official Document; in it will be
recorded the text of every Resolution that passed, when it
passed, and who suggested the Resolution.
Motivation: Should be obvious. It shouldn't be this easy to
gang up on somebody. Of course, I commend Malcolm for
noticing the opportunity and taking advantage of it.
Just remember, THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU.
