Apparently, Marquee tags aren’t a thing in WordPress.  This is why we should cancel the Switch.

This doesn’t seem to be doing anything – I look forward to the games merging back at some point in the near future.

Failed as one-week stale. –Tantusar

Add a new Dynastic rule called “The Registry” and give it the following text:

 

The Registry is tracked on the wiki page “The Registry”. The registry consists of a table with the following default columns: Name, Ideas, Products, Clients. A Designer may create an entry on The Registry by creating a row with the following information in their entry’s columns:

Name – the Designer’s username.

Ideas – an integer defaulting to the integer value of “Ideas” on their Template at time of entry into The Registry

Products – an integer defaulting to the integer value of “Products” on their Template at time of entry into The Registry

Clients – an integer defaulting to the integer value of “Products” on their Template at time of entry into The Registry

A Designer MAY NOT alter their entry in The Registry, nor another Designer’s entry, except by methods clearly stated in the rules.

A skeleton for the creation of a non-Elementor method of tracking stuff.

Unpopular. –Tantusar

Add to Income the following rule:

 

As a Daily Action, a Designer may convert 2 Ideas into a Product, OR 2 Products into a Client, as long as it does not reduce a Resource to below 0.

 

To attract clients, you need to put out good products, and to make good products, you need good ideas.

Just don’t have the extra energy for figuring out WP or switch dynamics at the moment.

Times out at Anti-Quorum 1-9. –Tantusar

Add a new rule to the ruleset, entitled Directionality:

A Designer’s Template is next to the Templates whose location in the SSP is orthagonally adjacent (either horizontally or vertically) to it.

As a Daily Action, a Designer may swap the position of their Template in the SSP with one of the Templates that it is next to.

Timed Out. Passes 7-0. I think because it doesn’t have the CORE tag it does nothing though, right? — Clucky (06 Jul 2020 03:38:25 UTC)

Can confirm has no effect. –Tantusar

In the rule Designers, to the end of the sentence “Admins at the main BlogNomic game shall become Admins of the BlogNomic WordPress test when they become a Designer of the BlogNomic WordPress test, unless they request otherwise”, add

, and any Admin at the main BlogNomic game may become an Admin of the WordPress Test game at any time by posting a notice to that effect. Upon the posting of such a notice, any other Admin should make the necessary profile changes at their earliest opportunity and comment to the Notice to confirm that they are complete.

If ‘whose title starts with [BUG]’ appears in the Dynastic Rules, replace it with ‘tagged with “BUG”’.

If ‘whose title begins with the string [SSP]’ appears in the Dynastic Rules, replace it with ‘tagged with “SSP”’.

We have ‘em, let’s use ‘em.

Times out failing 2-2. –Tantusar

Add a new Rule, called “Bug Reporting”:

If a Designer discovers a technical issue with the BlogNomic WordPress website, they are encouraged to report it by making a post to the Votable Matter category whose title starts with [BUG], and which describes the discovered issue. If the post is Enacted, its author may award themselves 1 of a Resource of their choosing the next time they update their Designer Template.

Since we are in a testing Dynasty, should we reward bug hunting?

We could also include ruleset patches that make rules more suited to the new platform — maybe using ARROW as a secondary vote?

Timed out and enacted, 7-0. Josh

In Rule 2.2 The Second Switch Page, in the fourth paragraph, change “The topmost Section on the SSP shall contain one Column, and that Column shall contain one “Title” Widget, set to display the page’s title.” to this:

The topmost Section on the SSP shall contain one Column, and that Column shall contain one “Page Title” Widget, set to display the page’s title. The settings of this widget may be changed at the discretion of the Lead Developer, provided that the settings do not break any rules.

Also in Rule 2.2.2, add this to the end of the second paragraph:

The Admin should confirm that the Template abides by the Ruleset before populating it, and if it is found not to abide by the Ruleset, the Admin must decline to populate it and comment on the request explaining which rule they think it breaks and why. The creator of the Designer Template must then make a new post requesting that it be populated into the Canvas.

Also in Rule 2.2.2, change “A Designer may edit their Designer Template in any permitted way as a Daily Action.” to this:

A Designer may edit their Designer Template as often as they wish if it is not yet populated into the Canvas. If it is populated into the Canvas, the Designer may edit it in any permissible way as a Daily Action. If a Designer Template on the Canvas is found to break a rule, the Designer may edit it at any time to make it conform to the rules, even if the rules regarding Daily Actions would prohibit it; however, such an edit still counts as a Daily Action for the purposes of determining whether a future edit to this template is legal. Such an edit must be announced in a blog post before being made, and may not make any changes not related to making the Designer Template conform to the rules.

Finally, below the last paragraph of Rule 2.2.2, add this:

Any Designer may challenge the legality of any other Designer’s Designer Template by making a post to the Votable Matter category whose title begins with the string [SSP], and whose text explains the illegality and proposes a change to the Template to make it conform to the rules. If the post is Enacted, the proposed change shall be made by the enacting Admin. Such a Votable Matter is not required, however; if a Designer can be convinced in any informal way that their Template breaks the rules, they may simply announce their change and make it, as described above.

Re-proposing “Let’s get Designing!_rev2_FINAL” without the rule about template types, since it was the only part anyone objected to, and it would help with problems like Tantusar’s (“cannot fix an illegal action without performing another illegal action”).
