Title: The GS Nomic
Post by: Tesla on June 02, 2014, 01:35:43 pm
Welcome to the Gaming Steve Nomic! A nomic (from the Greek for "law") is a special kind of game, which is created by being played. In other words, we make up the rules as we go. We begin with a bare-bones constitution, which I've set out below. The constitution is the sum of all rules, and any "move" is legal as long as it operates within the current rules. Part of the fun is trying to exploit loopholes. Everyone is welcome to play, and it's hella fun. Without further ado...

NOTE - There is nothing sacred in this game. Every aspect of it can be changed.



THE GAMING STEVE NOMIC CONSTITUTION

1. Every member of the Gaming Steve Forum (heretofore the GSF) is a Potential Player of the Gaming Steve Nomic. (heretofore the GSN). Every Potential Player who participates in the GSN at any point then becomes a Player.

2. All Players must always abide by all the Rules then in effect, in the form in which they are then in effect. A Rule is defined as any of the points listed in the Constitution. Primary Rules are listed as numbers, Amendments as alphabetic characters.

3. At any point, any Player may introduce a Rule-Change, which will then either be Passed or Defeated. A Rule-Change is any of the following: the Enactment, Repeal, or Amendment of a rule.
          a. An Enactment is the creation of a new rule, numbered subsequent to the highest numbered rule.
          b. A Repeal is the destruction of a current Rule. The Rule will be removed from the Constitution and all subsequent rules will change their numbering appropriately.
          c. An Amendment is a change to a current Rule, and upon passing, the then-current Rule will change to reflect the new amendment.
          d. All potential Rule-Changes are referred to as Motions and must be proposed in the following format, in bold italic type. "I make a Motion to..." Additionally, Motions must end with "For the purposes of voting, this motion shall be referred to as [username]'s motion to...", followed by a summary of the motion's actions, with "[username]" replaced by the Motion-Maker's username. Note that any Motion not proposed in this exact format is invalid.

4. The Passing or Failure of a Motion is predicated upon the first 3 agreeing Votes of 3 unique Players. (That is to say, each Player may only Vote once on each Rule-Change.) All Votes must appear in the format, in bold italic type, "I vote yes/no on [username]'s motion to..." Note that any Vote not raised in this exact format is invalid. A successful Motion becomes a Rule-Change and immediately affects the Constitution, even if it has not yet been added to this post.
           a. A Motion is Defeated if two Players Vote no on it. A Defeated Motion may not be proposed again, unto perpetuity, though an amended version may be proposed.
           b. Introducing a Motion automatically counts as a Vote for that motion by the Player introducing it.

5. The first Player to 100 Flargles Wins.
          a. In the event a Winner arises, the game continues, and only ends on the emergence of a Victor.
          b. The winner will have their GSF nickname changed to "Danny Stinkfist" through abuse of moderator powers.
          c. Flargles are freely tradeable between Players.  One Player may gift Flargles to another by posting "I transfer [amount] flargles to [username]" in bold italic type, wherein [amount] is replaced by the number of Flargles being traded and [username] is the username of the Player receiving the Flargles.  This Transaction occurs instantaneously upon posting.  All Players begin with 10 Flargles, and at the time of writing, 4/6/2014, 00.53 GMT, all current Players have 10 Flargles.

6. All Rules save Rule 6 may not be retroactive, that is to say they only apply to posts, excepting the Constitution, which follow the introduction of the rule chronologically.

7. Mods cannot use their powers to interfere in any way with normal gameplay. This includes editing or deleting others' posts.

8. Players cannot edit their posts.
          a. Except Tesla with this post.

9. Krakow Sam cannot use articles or pronouns in anything he says, and must end every sentence with an exclamation point. This does not include policy.

10. Regardless of any other conditions, the GSN may not be won by anyone until 00:00 GMT on June 5th 2014.

11. Every 96 hours, an election is held for a Prime Minister. Each Player is allowed one vote in this election. This Voting Period lasts 24 hours, the last of the then Prime Minister's Term. The first Voting Period takes place on the 24 hours following enactment of this Rule. The Prime Minister is allowed to veto one Passed Motion during their 96-hour Term.

Title: Re: The GS Nomic
Post by: Tesla on June 02, 2014, 02:31:37 pm
God dammit Sam, the point of the bold/italics is to make it easy to differentiate discussion from policy. Unless that was a joke, in which case, carry on.

I make a motion to enact the rule that policy posts cannot be edited after their creation, without also including the original post, struck out, so people can't trick voters into enacting a motion other than that for which they voted, and voters can't surreptitiously change their votes. Motions cannot be changed after a vote has been cast on it. For the purposes of voting, this motion shall be referred to as Tesla's Consistent Policy Motion.

Pretty sure now we need to edit our posts to replace all instances of "points" with "flargles".
Title: Re: The GS Nomic
Post by: Brandonazz on June 02, 2014, 03:21:50 pm
Quote from: Neoadept
replace all instances

As this was the language of the proposal, and there is no special procedure for modifying the constitution, and self-edits are still legal, I think that Sam is correct. We now need 100 flargles to win, and should flargle all previous posts.

ok guys, im gonna break the "rules" a little and just say that from now on, whenever you cast a vote, you must also include an accurate and true count of all yes/no votes for that motion with your vote. this doesn't change the game, it just makes it easier on me.

this'll also force you dumbs to actually look at how many votes have been cast before voting, a lot of your votes are redundant

I make a motion that whenever a player proposes a Motion, they must also automatically vote yes on their own motion, since everyone is doing that anyway. For voting purposes said motion will be referred to by the title Slinky's Motion to Make Self-Promotion More Efficient.

That repeal was unrelated, but, no, too much work.

You can't take back a motion, or change your vote.

You can't repeal a motion? I must have missed that.

Well, nevermind. Disregard the repeal and count the vote. It'll probably get shot down anyway so no big deal.

Tesla, I've just checked the Constitution and no where does it say that a motion cannot be repealed. So, motion repealed.
Title: Re: The GS Nomic
Post by: Tesla on June 02, 2014, 06:31:57 pm
Nowhere does the constitution say that you can officially rescind a motion. You can say you do, but that won't stop players from being able to vote on it.

I think we're all forgetting the most important thing for any democratic body.  We need a leader selected fairly through due process.  As such, I make a Motion to hold an election for the Prime Minister of the game.  Each Player is allowed one vote.  At the end of the day that this motion is passed, the Player with the most votes is crowned Prime Minister.  While mostly a ceremonial role, they do have the ability to veto a single passed motion.  Every 4 days a new election is held for the next Prime Minister.  For the purposes of voting, this motion shall be referred to as Martyk's Motion to Install Fair and Just Leadership.

Oh, and guys, please start properly labeling your motions as enactments or amendments. For example, Slinky's Motion to Make Self-Promotion More Efficient is more of an amendment to the rules on voting than a new rule.

I (Sam) make(s) a motion to enact a rule, which will be numbered 0 and be posted before rule 1, which states that rules have a priority based on their numerical order! The lower the number, the higher the priority of the rule in the event of a conflict! Any conflict between rules must be resolved referring to this priority! For voting purposes said motion will be referred to by the title Krakow Sams's Motion to prioritise rules! 1 yes vote!

I make a motion to amend rule five such that flargles are freely tradeable between players.  One player may gift flargles to another by posting "I transfer [amount] flargles to [name]" in bold italic text, wherein [amount] is replaced by the number of flargles being traded and [name] is the user name of the player receiving the points.  This transaction occurs instantaneously upon posting.  In addition, all players excepting Neoadept will receive ten flargles upon the passing of the motion.  This motion is known as Neoadept's Motion for Having an Economy.  One yes vote.

So, now everyone has 10 flargles, including Neoadept. We can now exchange flargles. This is probably the most significant rule change yet.
