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?

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”).

Times out 6-2. –Tantusar

If the proposal “Think Inside the Box Inside the Box” failed, ignore the rest of this proposal.

Add the following to the end of “Permitted Widgets” subrule:

Inventory

A Designer Template may have a single “Icon List” widget, with exactly three list items which unambiguously state the number of Products, Ideas, and Clients (collectively called Resources) owned by that Template’s Designer. The icons of these three items shall be “Box”, “Lightbulb”, and “User” respectively. No text within this Widget may have a font size greater than 24 pixels or 1.5 rems.

Add a new rule, called “Income”, with the following text:

When updating their Template, a Designer may increase the amount of a Resource they own by at most X, where X is the number of days since their last edit to the Template. This may only be done if the Template (prior to editing) contains an “Image Box” Widget or an “Icon Box” Widget matching that Resource.

An “Image Box” Widget is considered to match:

  • Clients, if it contains an image which shows a person.
  • Products, if it does not match Clients and contains an image which shows a man-made object.
  • Ideas, if it does not match any other Resource.

An “Icon Box” Widget is considered to match a Resource if it contains the icon used to represent that Resource, as defined under “Inventory” in the “Permitted Widgets” subrule.

Let’s see if we can use our Templates to track resources.
