Griffin: Immortal Nights Theater hereby proposes that the Administrative Bylaws be amended to include the following change (in red):

FROM

3. D.  Player Base Notification
i. Rules, organizational, and/or game mechanics proposals shall be posted in their entirety on the public OWBN web site for review by the OWBN player base.

2. The Head Coordinator may also indicate additional locations that proposals may be posted.


ii. Any vote results, including comments posted on the online Vote Management System, that relate to a rules, organizational, and/or game mechanics proposal shall be posted in its entirety on the public OWBN web site for review by the OWBN player base.
1. This shall be done by an AHC within twenty-four (24) hours of the vote opening.
2. The Head Coordinator may also indicate additional locations that proposals may be posted.

Such a call for an immediate vote on this subject will place said proposal on hold until the vote is finalized.

1. Should any proposal inappropriate for players to see in totality include any change, addition, or exemption to the OWBN Bylaws, it must include a Summary Sheet at the end of the proposal or as a separate document. This Summary will include only the changes to the Bylaws including but not limited to R&U classifications or reclassifications, bylaw exemptions, and/or additions to existing bylaws. This Summary will be available for player review.


 

This Bylaw amendment will help players better understand org rules as they change and grow while maintaining plot secrecy. We have seen plots that could have been widely accepted brought down or made less-than-fun by criticism of accompanying mechanical changes after the fact; this measure allows those changes to be scrutinized before implementation to bring about better player-base cohesion and Chronicle investment by inviting edits during discussion and voting periods.
