PROPOSAL
--------
{{

Create a rule:
{{
__Vow of Poverty__

{{
```
A player may take a Vow of Poverty by posting eir intention to do so in a public forum.
```
```
If a player who has taken a Vow of Poverty gives points to another player, eir respect increases by 0.005 for every point given. [[ i.e., give 200 points to another player for one respect ]] If a player who has taken a Vow of Poverty gives points to the Scoring Gremlin, e gains 0.01 respect for each point given. [[ i.e. give 100 points to the Scoring Gremlin for one respect ]]
```
```
Unless e is On Leave, at the end of the first nday of every nweek a player loses 0.1 respect for every point e has. If a player is On Leave at the end of the first nday of an nweek, one nday after e becomes Off Leave e loses 0.1 respect for every point e has.
```}}

```
Revise Rule 296, replacing "Whenever a proposal is recognized, if the Scoring Gremlin is Active," with "Whenever a proposal is recognized, if the Scoring Gremlin is Active, out of all players who have not taken a Vow of Poverty". Then replace "If the player with the lowest" [[Last sentence, first paragraph]] with "If, out of the players who have not taken a Vow of Poverty, the player with the lowest".
```
If Proposal 361 failed, add the following text to the end of rule 296:
```
"Players may give points to the Scoring Gremlin in the same manner as giving points to other players.
```
```
The Scoring Gremlin initially has 100 Points. This paragraph shall then be deleted from the rules."
```

[[ You know, I had a good Limerick to replace my "slowing down GremBall" proposal too... I was all excited about that.
