Re: [spoon-discuss] Thoughts toward a universal Nomic calendar

How about this: The Nweek lasts eight ndays, divided into three checkpoints.
The first two are three days in length, the third only two. The nyear is
eight nweeks long, with New Nyear's Day at the beginning outside of the
normal nweek cycle. Every twenty-one nyears, a Leap Nday is added four
nweeks into the nyear. This is also outside of the nweek cycle.

In B Nomic, the first checkpoint of the nweek is for proposing, the second
for debate and many other game actions, and the third for voting.
I dislike any scheme that leaves only two days for voting, on the basis that people who may only have access on weekdays, or are away for a weekend, or something don't have a chance. Besides, it's too like a normal week. I'd say go back to the 10 day week with three, four and three days per checkpoint respectively.

The concept of leapndays I like though.
