Default The Hamumu Nomic

Nomic is a game where changing the rules is a move. It can lead to some rather interesting situations. The current rules are as follows:

1. Any player of this game may at any time suggest a change to the gamestate (rules or other properties of the game). This is termed a "proposal".

2. All players must obey the rules which are currently in effect, in the form in which they are in effect.

3. Any player may leave at any time, at which point the rules no longer govern him or her. Any player violating a rule, if they do not correct their action after sufficient notice, is considered to have quit.

4. At any time any member of the Hamumu Forums may petition to become a player of this game. This petition is treated like any other proposal, aside from the fact that it was made by a non-player.

5. Once a proposal is made, all existing players of this game may vote "Yes" or "No" on it. If it receives more votes of "Yes" than "No" (at the end of a week or the moment it receives a majority of the possible votes), the changes described in it take effect.

6. The person in charge of maintaining the rules is called the "Rulekeeper". The current rulekeeper is Sillyman.

7. When a player's proposal passes, they gain 1 point.

8. Until Coolguy joins, all players must work (preferrably obnoxiously) to get him to join.

9. When a player makes a proposal, they are automatically assumed to have voted yes unless they say otherwise.

10. A player may not make another proposal if e has a proposal already open.

Current Players:
Sillyman- 1 points
Davedude- 1 points
Connor S.- 0 points
Ion Sumo- 0 points
Varkarrus- 0 points

I vote for Varkarrus being added to the game. As for his other proposal, it will be up for vote if and when he is added. Anyways, by "by vote" do you mean when all players vote for night to start or when a majority vote for night to start or something else?

Varkarrus has joined. His other proposal ("Night and Day") has been added. I shall not vote until he answers what sort of voting and who PMs for Day to start are sent to.
