    The purpose of this poll is to determine if steps should be taken to change the laws of Fanatika in relation to citizen honors.

    Specifically, should honors received for work in the RPG game be recognized in the rules of the Democracy Game itself, especially as related to city naming.

    By definition the events and activities in the RPG thread are not allowed to impact the Demo Game, but citizens are receiving honors based upon their RPG work, and those honors are impacting the demo game.

    This poll is open ended, and will remain open until quorum is met

    BTW, great polls Bill. Thanks for your continued hard work.

    As long as the RPG is a part of the Demo Game and as long as the quorum requirements have been met, then they should be honored the same as the other, non-RPG Honorees.

    I believe we reached a general agreement to seperate the actual game and the rpg. Therefore, these honors should stay seperate.

    If we would have had the huevos to change the honor (such as which item they get to name), we wouldn't have to split the population on a major issue. It was a mistake to make honors worth more than honors in the first place. Then it was a larger mistake to put the honors-holder(s) at the top of the COC. Would you put a celebrity that did work for a cause of some sort over the President of the US? (well, maybe Bush, but that's a different disscusion). No, you wouldn't. It was just a mistake. Now I still think we need to change the "reward" for being an "honored" citizen (like one is needed), rather than surgically remove the well-accepted RPG from a Constitutional battle. The action in this poll or this shift in judgement is just going to be a tear in the fabric of our society.

    They should be combined. Hard work is hard work. Whether you labor to set up polls and meet deadlines or whether you do your best to add to the fun of the roll-playing environment hard work deserves credit. With credit comes official recognition including honors. I see no problem w/naming a city after someone who "lives" in one of them :)
