20160926 unlimited AP weekend

JoshCz (talk) 04:05, 5 July 2016 (UTC) 20:28, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

Type: All day UD marathon

Scope: all players

Description: This addition would bring 1 weekend/1 day if that is too much where players have unlimited AP. It would be more costly but if we started a donation drive we could potentially pay for the weekend of free play we could make it work. This would bring players back to the game as it would allow people to play together for an extended period of time. Again if a whole weekend is too much, a single day on a weekend would be great. I know I would spend the entire day on UD in a siege or something. And after the people come back to UD and are reminded of how great a game it is, we could maybe have a discussion with Kevin or something about where the game should go if it works. Also, zergers do not effect this suggestion b/c they would only be able to play one account at a time.

Voting Section

Voting Rules
Votes must be numbered, justified, signed, and timestamped.
# justification ~~~~

Votes that do not conform to the above may be struck by any user.

The only valid votes are Keep, Kill, Spam or Dupe. If you wish to abstain from voting, do not vote.

Keep Votes

  1. Keep - Author vote. (cast in absentia by VVV RGPBMBCAWS) --JoshCz (talk) 04:05, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill - This entire game revolves around the thoughtful application of scarce Action Points. It should not be even temporarily reduced to a braindead clicking sim. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 20:41, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  2. Kill with fire. AP limits are fundamental to the game. There are far less existentially destructive ways to "advertise" the game. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 23:46, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
  3. Kill, stick a syringe in it and Kill it again. This would only scare off the casual players and enable PKers to make entire areas unplayable. It would also entirely diminish the downside of being killed. PB&J 09:05, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
  4. Kill - While I appreciate the consideration for factors like zerg abuse, I have to agree with the others. AP limits are fundamental to the game, and while removing them may help to drum up some short-term activity, the effects of having unlimited AP disproportionately favor the zombie side. After all, a lone zombie could tear down the barricades at a populated building and kill every survivor inside in the span of a few minutes if none of them are active at that exact moment, but the survivors couldn't act alone if they wanted to recover from the attack; they would need someone else to coordinate with them and revive them, otherwise they'd be out of commission for the rest of the Unlimited AP Day/Weekend. More or less, all it would take for a survivor to be out of action is for them to be offline for a few seconds, but a zombie can disappear for hours at a time and just ?rise anytime afterwards to be right back where they were. Aichon 14:49, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
    Now you're just tempting me to change my vote: favouring the undead side of the game would be awesome. And yeah, then the breathers would have to cooperate for a change to be able to do anything at all! The shoe is on the other table! (which is now turned) PB&J 14:55, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
  5. Kill There are ruins out there that have been maintained by zombies for years. A single survivor could reset the whole city state. --Rosslessness ; the shambling custodian of UD's past... 20:13, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
  6. Kill - I can only see this working in a separate city, where these are the permanent rules. Perhaps it could work in Malton, but only if the game is paused for the day/weekend, and then reset to how it was before, afterwards. Otherwise this would just see everyone who cant stay online for huge chunks of the day, or anyone who is disadvantaged in real time combat (due to lag, other commitments) getting totally pounded -- boxy 12:36, 30 September 2016 (BST)
  7. Kill - I pretty much agree with the points against made above. However, the one thing that I don't think was brought up anywhere in discussion was what about IP hits? If you've got 160 hits total per day, but it's unlimited AP, would that need to be lifted too? stelar (talk) 14:50, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
    Reply — Even if the IP hit isn't lifted, that's still a huge amount of AP for one character — a zombie could easily take down multiple EHB buildings, for example. And does repairing decayed buildings take more than a couple IP hits? If not, one survivor could repair 70+ mega-decayed buildings in one day's worth of IP. Not to mention those who've donated and are freed from IP limit. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 14:56, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Advice to Suggesters

  1. Adding options to your suggestion is not good practice. Others will not vote on the options, only the main body; please don't ask them to do so.
  2. Once you have posted your suggestion, it is considered complete. Altering the suggestion mechanics after voting has begun nullifies existing votes, and is considered an abuse of the suggestions system. Doing so will result in your suggestion being removed from the voting system to removed suggestions, where you can work out the details and resubmit later if you desire. It is preferred that you remove your own suggestion and resubmit a new version with changes, if changes are needed.
  3. "Notes" added for clarification purposes, and correcting spelling/typos are permitted. When considering adding a clarification note, it is often better for all parties involved, for the author to remove the suggestion and resubmit it with the clarification included for the voters who have already placed their votes.

Advice to Voters

  1. You are voting on Suggestions, not Users. The text of your vote should not personally attack or denigrate the user who has submitted it... no matter how ridiculous the idea. Flaming and/or Trolling will not be tolerated.
  2. Before voting please read the Suggestions Dos and Do Nots and Frequently Suggested Ideas Page to read about concepts that have been generally considered unworkable in the past. You do not need to follow the guidelines on these pages but they are worth consideration before casting a vote.
  3. One vote per user. No exceptions. You cannot use multiple wiki accounts to vote on a suggestion.
  4. To Vote, use the [edit] button at the top of the voting section, then enter your vote in the the proper format to the end of the relevant section (keep/kill/spam).
  5. It is strongly recommended that voters (especially in the kill/spam sections) justify their vote to help others understand the reason they disagree. Feedback helps new suggesters get a feel for what the community does and does not want included in Urban Dead, and a deeper understanding of the balance needed for a workable suggestion.
  6. Votes must include a signature in order to be considered valid votes. To sign a vote, use --~~~~. Please remember to sign your votes! Unsigned votes will be deleted after 30 minutes or when found.
  7. Each Suggestion will be open to voting for two (2) weeks, measured from the suggestion's Timestamp, unless it is a Dupe or Spam. If, at the end of that time, there are two thirds (2/3) more Keep votes than Kill votes, the Suggestion will be moved to the Peer Reviewed Suggestions page. Otherwise, the Suggestion will be moved to the Peer Rejected Suggestions page.
Rules for Discussions

Votes are NOT the place to discuss Suggestions. This page and archived suggestion pages only to be used for the Suggesting and subsequent Voting of these suggestions. If you wish to discuss the suggestion or vote here, please use this page's Talk page (Suggestion talk:20160926 unlimited AP weekend). Suggestions do not have to be submitted in order to discuss them. Developing Suggestions can be used to workshop possible suggestions before they are submitted.

Valid Votes
  • Keep, for Suggestions that you believe have merit.
  • Kill, for Suggestions that you believe do not have merit. If you need to discuss a rule fix, use the discussion page.
  • Spam, for the most ridiculous suggestions.
Suggestions can be removed with Spam votes as described on the cycling suggestions page. If the criterion described there are not fulfilled, the suggestion must remain for the whole two weeks.
Spam votes are not a "strong kill", they are simply here to prevent the utterly ridiculous from clogging up the system. If you do not like the idea, and it's not some crazy uber power or something else ridiculous, VOTE KILL, NOT SPAM. Spam votes will be counted as Kill when votes are tallied.
  • Dupe, for Suggestions that are exact or very close duplicates of previous suggestions. For a Dupe vote to be valid, a link must be provided to the original suggestion.
Dupe votes can be used to remove suggestions as described on the cycling suggestions page. Dupe votes will not be counted when votes are tallied.
  • Humourous, for suggestions that are obviously intended to be satirical, or of comedic value only.}}
Suggestions can be removed with Humourous votes as described on the cycling suggestions page. If the criterion described there are not fulfilled, the suggestion must remain for the whole two weeks.
Invalid Votes
  • Server Load and Programming Complexity are NOT very good Kill reasons. You are voting on the merit of the suggestion and whether or not you think it belongs in the game. Server load/complexity issues are up to Kevan to decide.
  • X should be implemented first is not a valid reason for a vote. You are voting on the merit of THIS suggestion, not how it compares to others.
  • Votes that do not have reasoning behind them are invalid. You MUST justify your vote.
  • Re may be used to comment on a vote. Only the original author and the person being REd can comment. Comments are restricted to a single comment per vote, and it is expected that Re comments be as short as possible. Reing every kill vote is considered abuse of the Re comment. A Re does not count as a vote, and any subsequent discussion not part of the Re comment should be held on the discussion page if there is any extended commenting.
  • Note is used by System Operators to invalidate trolling-based votes. Only Sysops may remove troll-based votes and they do so with a strikeout <s></s> in order to preserve the trolling removal for posterity. The voter may contest the strikeout with the Sysop that struck their vote out on the discussion page. Only a System Operator may remove a strikeout.
