Lord Dominator will be hosting an audience Question and Answer Session on commendations and condemnations.
Please ask them a question in this thread. Transcripts will be posted on dispatches at a later date.
I think that’s all the questions I have for now.
1) Do you think C&Cs should be considered disregarding one’s own biases as defenders/raiders?
2) Has the failure of any C/C proposal disappointed you? If yes, which one was it and why do you think it failed?
What kind of actions do you think qualifies people for two (or possibly even more) commendations/condemnations? And what kind do you think qualify people for both a commendation and a condemnation?
To my mind, the basis is that they need to have done actions that would regularly qualify for each individual one and are not mutually exclusive (for example, a Commend for defending and a Condemn for raiding at the same time).
What is a good basis for repealing a C&C?
Do you see liberations becoming a new type of badge, like C&C?
A good basis to my mind is one that presents a compelling reason why it should be undone, generally in the light of what is in the original. The primary exception is OOC things, such as the vaguely recent repeal of Solorni’s Commend. In general though, it should be presenting arguments that the individiual C&Ced no longer deserves it, due to their later actions contradicting the reasons they received it in the first place.
In your mind, what separates successful resolutions from almost-but-not-quite successful ones?
The big one I think is that successful ones passed, and the other ones did not 😉
Beyond that, I don’t really think there any patterns between proposals that came close to passing, but did not. Patterns between those that didn’t come close are rather more obvious (writing and arguments generally)
Why do you think defenders have had such a dominance over the SC?
I think it has to do with the number of active defender SC authors vs other alignments as the most primary function, and the rest of the voting is ultimately a sideshow to what gets submitted. In terms of voting though, generally their alliances and blah blah with other regions helping them to swing votes (and in the case of Liberations, the regular support those receive).
What qualifies nations or regions for more than one badge of the same kind (i.e. 2 commendations or 2 condemnations)?
Further actions that warrant a C&C, generally at a level superior to at least twice the accomplishments in the original. That is, a second of the same should need more justification than a single one of the same on someone else, or the original on the same thing.
Region C&Cs are perhaps more difficult in this sense, so less sure on them.
I would like to thank Lord Dominator for answering questions in this Q+A. I’ll now lock this thread, as its almost the end of the event.
