Thank you for your good wishes. I am glad I had a chance to know a few of you. *cough cough* All ridiculous OCD things aside, it always gets to me when a mod resigns. Probably because I'm always scared out of my wits that said mod's resignation will be the tipping point leading to there not being en...

So Long and Thanks for the Fish

I have tendered my resignation with the site's administration and have officially retired. This was 100% my choice that I made earlier this week. It wasn't an easy one but a necessary one. In recent weeks and months, my activity has dropped due to other priorities. There are only so many hours in a ...

My two-cents: The ruling is 6+ years old. We had a tight framework when it was made. But times have changed and we have 300+ resolutions, even if most are repeals. An argument can be made for the allowance of 'non-compliance' since nations can RP non-compliance. The 'compliance commission' is a game...

Yeah, we could do that too. Once the proposal expires, post that it's a moot issue. And it has zero danger of making quorum. At least this time. Even if it doesn't make quorum, it should still be given some consideration. It is no longer time sensitive. I'd only drop if the author has abandoned it ...

My cursory opinion is that it is a Metagaming violation, as the GA and SC are two separate bodies within the game. They were purposefully separated in 2009, with the GA as an IC game, and the SC as completely OOC and Gameplay-related. I find Gruenberg's argument that it's just as illegal as mention...

Actually, saying that legality challenges should initially be posted there -- perhaps with a [CHALLENGE] label to differentiate them from the obvious illegalities that would probably still be deleted "automatically" by a Mod in the rare case of them getting close to quorum -- might work w...

I guess I'd argue that "etiquette" dates from a time it was remotely possible to conduct a drafting thread IC in this forum. It still is. But you'll have to understand that many people will have to use RL examples, because similar info just doesn't exist for the WA. You could do what I te...

Is there an actual forum rule against creating separate OOC and IC threads for proposals? The "one thread for each proposal" custom has always been more about stopping people from creating a new thread everytime they post a new draft. No there isn't but because of the nature of this forum...

OOC: This may be illegal due to the house of cards rule. Your entire argument rests on the fact that there are already resolutions in place that cover this, yet it would fall flat if all of those resolutions were repealed. However, given this is a repeal itself, I may be wrong about this. Perhaps t...

OOC: Technically not. It doesn't mention the game event or anything about this being just a game. It falls afoul of plenty of other rules, though.

Indeed. Although it was posted at the time of the annual *blech* event, it isn't a meta-gaming violation. The timing is a coincidence.

Because the SC should be for gameplay only.

While I can't speak on the mechanical feasibility, I have previously suggested to [violet] that we create separate pages for proposal submission, so we can have a greater level of information right that new authors can readily see.

OK. When what later became known as the Security Council was first introduced, a lot of players - both GA players and SC players, roleplayers and gameplayers - wanted to "separate" the two completely. [violet] kept telling us this was mechanically impossible. But given so many of the prob...

It's still metagaming and I would be unalterably opposed to such a change. That's not metagaming. It doesn't attempt to force actions outside the game and does not refer to the game as a game. It refers to events that exist OOCly, but that isn't metagaming... resolutions can refer to telegram campa...
