12. Anyone on the NHS Haters list must mention Nigel Farage in a complimentary way whenever they post in this thread. It must be part of a proper sentence, and they can’t re-use the sentences. Exemption applies to any posts OrangeRKN makes that are purely for Nomic game admin purposes. Anyone on the NHS Haters list who fails to include a unique mention of Nigel Farage in a post will be docked 1 point.

That's a good point.

12 hours isn't very long, the game could end overnight.

I'm definitely up for encouraging 24/7 activity or murdering the game. :P

Actually that's not the worst point. Extend it to 24 hours?

I think it should be "the team with the most points wins". Hoping you'll agree that's a good point.

I guess the point (which hopefully you'll agree is a good one) is that the team with the most points should be defending their lead by making sure they are posting at least once a day.

Hmm! Sure, maybe. I dunno.

I'll wait to see what rinks thinks so I can do the opposite.

"If there are no posts in 24 hours, the team with the most points wins" sounds good to me.

I'm posting just to see what team I'll be on and perhaps win the game by doing as little as possible.

I thought I was on team even but actually I'm team odd, because I looked at the wrong post!

Team list updated

By the way... I haven't been tracking points :lol: I'm going to propose this rule to fix that in the "Core rules Scoring points" category:

Each player should keep track of their own points. A player can declare their current points total at any time. Any player can request another declares their point total in thread by quoting them with a clearly worded request so that the other player receives a forum notification of the request. The notified player must then declare their point total within their next three posts in the thread. If their declared total is proven to be incorrect by another player, it will reset to zero from the post proving it incorrect. If the notified player fails to declare their point total within their next three posts, it will reset to zero from their last post. If an incorrect points total is declared but not proven to be incorrect for 24 hours, it will become correct.

Net: +1

The "that's a good point" rule will mean I need to do far too much admin as host to keep track of everyone's points... so don't try and make me do that please, because I'll probably just outright refuse, rules be damned :lol:

This way you just need to track your own points, but it's a bit more interesting with the ability to fabricate your point total and get away with it, unless someone is tracking it also and calls you out on it. It's "adversarial democratisation"! (I made that phrase up, but I like it!)
