Resolution idea that does not fall into drop-down catgories

19-07-2006, 11:59
RECOGNISING that the NationStates server ("the server") has limited space, and also

RECOGNISING that there are some repealed resolutions still on the UN History, which are greyed and struck through, and also

ACKNOWLEDGING that even though some of these repealed resolutions are useful, some are not (see resolution #1), and

ACKNOWLEDGING that some resolutions are poorly written and have been replaced by more indepth resolutions (see resolution #95),

This resolution:
RECOGNISES that there are some valued repealed resolutions that they may be sustained for a longer period of time, and therefore

CREATES a system by which all repealed resolutions are removed from the history after a period of time equal to the proportion of "for" votes divided by the amount of "against" votes of that resolution, which is then multiplied by a period of fifty days, and

RECOGNISES that there shall be numerical incontiguity once repealed resolutions are removed, so therefore

CREATES a system by which newer resolutions can fill the spaces of the removed resolutions, by which a numerical contiguity can be restored, and

RECOGNISES that there will then be chronological incontiguity once there are new resolutions in place, so therefore

SETS the UN History page in chronological rather than numerical order.

I assume this is a joke...but I don't get it.

Meh. Just had a bright-not-so-bright idea, posted it, just wanted to see what kind of reaction this'll get. I'm probably another fool trying to do something entirely illegal (in the eyes of NS Mods) and get warned for it. I don't know, theres so many rules that this probably breaks. Anywho...

"Game Mechanics" would be the violation. If you want to take this idea to the Technical forum (where such things belong), feel free.

Can you move the whole thread? Or do I have to rewrite it in there?
I would be very grateful if you moved it...

It would be better if you rewrote it, as UN-Proposal-ese isn't exactly useful in Tech.

It's also rather pointless, as removing the repealed proposals would require significant policy change and extensive recoding to save perhaps 5-10 k of space. We've got gigabytes. Even one meg would be irrelevant, compared to the effort.

It's not going to happen. Don't bother reposting it.

I dunno. I thought it was rather funny. :D
