Proposal: Official Servers

I submit the following proposals.

Don’t start voting on these just yet. The Chair is needed to call a vote, and there won’t be a Chair until late Thursday, at the earliest. However, if I become the next Chair, I intend to distribute all of these proposals, along with all other proposals, on Friday. I’ll post voting instructions at that time.

If you have other things to add to the pile, now’s a good chance.

Servers

This article has a power of 1.

The Space Master

The Space Master is an office, responsible for operating game services.

The Space Master’s monthly report includes

  1. All information needed for players to connect to the official server.

The Official Server

A server is an instance of the dedicated server package for the game Space Engineers, along with all data required to provide persons with a consistent, continuous play experience, including all save game data and server configuration files.

The Space Master can declare a server that they operate to be the official server by announcement, and must do so in a timely fashion whenever there is no official server. When a server becomes an official server, any other official servers cease to be official servers.

Continuity

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, and may only deliberately modify or delete the official server’s data if they publicly announce an intent to do so between three and 14 days earlier, unless the modification is performed through ordinary gameplay.

Official Configuration

A configuration setting for a Space Engineers server is an official setting if it is defined as one by this Charter.

The Space Master must configure the official server so that for each official setting, that server a value for that setting is a value allowed by this Charter.

Official Mods

A mod for the game Space Engineers is an official mod if it is defined as one by this Charter.

A member who operates an official server must configure that server so that each official mod is loaded.
