Proposal Distribution & Voting (April 20th, 2019)

I distribute the following proposals, and initiate the decision to adopt each one. For each of these decisions, the voting method is Adoption Majority, and quorum is 3.

Title Author Adoption Index
Space Master 2.0 2.0 @derspiny 1.0
Cleanup in Article 9 @derspiny 1.0
Speedy Autopilot @SurprisingEdge 1.0
Meteor Bakeoff - No Meteors @derspiny 1.0
Meteor Bakeoff - Weekly Meteors @derspiny 1.0
Meteor Bakeoff - Bi-hourly Meteors @derspiny 1.0
Meteor Bakeoff - Hourly Meteors @derspiny 1.0
Meteor Bakeoff - This Is Fine @derspiny 1.0
Meteor Bakeoff - Cataclysm @derspiny 1.0
Meteor Bakeoff - Armageddon @derspiny 1.0

Please vote FOR at most one Meteor Bakeoff proposal. If you vote for one, vote AGAINST the others. The way I’ve structured the proposals will “work” even if you vote freely, but it’s probably in our interests that at most one proposal passes. If this doesn’t resolve the question I’ll think of a way to do ranked-choice/instant runoff voting for preferred meteor styles, or we can keep discussing it, as people feel is appropriate.

Blanket ballot template
I vote FOR/AGAINST the following proposals:

* Space Master 2.0 2.0

For the Meteor Bakeoff proposals, I vote FOR No Meteors/Weekly Meteors/Bi-hourly Meteors/Hourly Meteors/This Is Fine/Cataclysm/Armageddon and AGAINST the others.

The text of each proposal is included below.

Space Master 2.0 2.0

Title: Space Master 2.0 2.0
Adoption Index: 1.0

Repeal rule 9.3 (“Continuity”).

Append the following text paragraphs to the end of rule 9.2 (“The Official Server”):

The Space Master must take all steps necessary to ensure that the data created by the official server is protected from accidental deletion or modification.

The Space Master may only deliberately view, modify, or delete the official server’s data through ordinary gameplay, to implement adopted proposals, or to address non-gameplay-related technical issues. If the Space Master makes a deliberate modification to address a non-gameplay-related technical issue, they must publish a complete description of their changes, and their rationale for them within a day.

Information about the state of the game on an official server, other than information stored in the server’s configuration files or information included in the server’s log files, is game information. Game information that the Space Master learns of through the execution of their privileged access is privileged game information. Persons must not disclose privileged game information to any player except when required for the execution of said person’s duties, and then only to the most limited set of players feasible, unless required by this Charter to disclose.
