|spoon-business: Ballot, nweek 21|
The ballot for nweek 21 is as follows: The following Proposals are up for voting: P465/0, Fix the Showdown, by PurpleBob P466/1, Remove the debt system, by Joerg Here are what I believe to the be texts of those two Proposals: ---- P465/0 Change the third paragraph of the rule entitled "Pooker: the Showdown" to: "In the event of a Showdown, each Player can choose whether to show eir cards. If e decides to show eir cards, e must post a message within three days to a public forum, describing which PCards should be shown, and how they should be arranged into Poker Hands. After three days have passed since the Showdown was declared, a prize of a certain number of Points (as described below) goes to the Player or Players with the highest total Score of Poker Hands, and all PCards that were shown are returned to the Deck." ---- P466/1 Amend rule 317 (The Bank) by changing its text to: "The bank is an Agent, but not an eligible voter. It is the resposibility of the Bank to manage the distribution of points. When the rules specify that a Player is awarded a certain amount of points, the bank shall transfer that amount of points from its property to the Player; When the rules specify that a Player is fined a certain amount of points, these points shall be transfered from the Player to the Bank." Amend rule 318 (The Banker) by changing its text to: "The Office of the Banker is an elective office. It is the responsibility of the Banker to take actions on behalf of the Bank and to keep track of the number of points owned by each Player. The Banker's report shall include a list of all point transfers that happened in that nweek, the new scores of each Player, and the Bank's property by the end of that nweek." Amend rule 321 (The Officer of Bean Counting) by changing its text to: "The Officer of Bean Counting (OBC) is an Elected Officer. The OBC shall keep track of the number of objects owend by each Player, with the exception of points, which are counted by the Banker." Amend rule 324 (Office of the Tax Collector) by changing its text to: "The Office of The Tax Collector is an Elective Office. The Tax Collector is responsible for the Bank's income." Amend rule 325 (Bankruptcy) by changing its text to: "If ever the Bank's Score becomes negative, the Bank has become bankrupt. Whenever the Bank is bankrupt, the Banker and Tax Collector are fined 20 Points each, with the excpetion that the Bankruptcy Fine may be imposed no more than once per turn." Repeal rule 351 (Automatic Debt Payment) Repeal rule 358 (Motion for Payment) Amend rule 121 (Score) by changing its text to: "Associated with each agent is a scalar quantity known as eir score. An agent's score is a representation of the number of point objects or antipoint objects owned by em. The score of an agent shall be a positive number if e owns points, and a negative number if e owns antipoints." Create a new rule entitled "Point transfer" with the following text: "The owner of one or more points may transfer any or all points in eir posession to another legal owner by posting to the public forum. If a rule specifies that an agent needs to pay a certain amount of points, or that an agent owes points, or the rule contains any other provision with the same effect, and the coditions specified in those rules are met, the point transfer shall happen automatically. An Agent may not take actions that require em to transfer points if e does not have enough points." Create a new rule entitled "Antipoints" with the following text: "Antipoints are objects. If an Agent is required to transfer an amount of points greater than the number of points in eir posession, the required number of points shall be created in eir posession and transfered. Then, a number of antipoints equal to the number of points created before shall be created in eir posession. If an Agent owns both points and antipoints, one point and one antipoint in eir posession shall be destroyed. This process shall be repeated until the Agent owns either no more points or no more antipoints." Create a new rule entitled "Debt transition" with the following text: "For each debt object, the banker shall perform the point transfer required to satisfy the debt and the debt shall be destroyed. No permission to perform the point transfer is required from the creditor or the debtor. As soon as all debts are destroyed, this rule and rule 347 (Debts are Objects) shall be repealed automatically." In rule 380 (Taxation), remove the last paragraph. ---- -- J.
