    New page, new reminder there's a vote going on:

    Tie not. Banjo or Banjo not, there is no tie.

    (Per Rule F4, a quote with two or more votes in favor than votes against is included, otherwise the quote is excluded; there are no vote scenarios that result in a tie)

    OK.




    All three entries are now in the Index.


    Now then, on the subject of deletions....The tentative list is below. I don't really want to start a vote on the weekend, and it turns out I misunderstood people about the V's Children entry (so that one's not on the list); so if anyone has anything to add at this point, now's the time. Ideally we'll get a vote on removals started some time tomorrow.

    Entries Suggested for Removal
    Protection from Law is Illegal in Many Places #969 12/01/2014
    Durkon Throws Diamond Dust
    Durkon threw diamond dust into the air in 844.
    #844 03/09/2012
    Orrin Draketooth's Daughter
    She's not Haley.
    #816 11/21/2011
    Haley's Boots of Speed
    Yes, she did get them dyed to match her brown/tan garb.
    #793 05/29/2011
    Elan's Rapiers
    He has two. His original, and one from Julio Scoundrel.
    #723 05/13/2010


    There hasn't been much movement on the subject of codifying removal procedures, so I have to assume it's not a great concern. So as it stands, it'll be run the same way I did the last removal: Each quote will be voted on, with the same two-more-votes-in-favor threshold to keep it as they took to be included in the first place.

    Should we include his comments on the fake Kickstarter scam?

    Absolutely not, IMO. At most, it is a PSA to the greater Internet community out there, and just isn't part of the focus of this Index.

    And it might tread into Forbidden Topics, like Rich's Business Dealings. Best just to stay far far away from it, IMO.

    Definitely not--it's not related to the strip or the plotlines within, and only has a tangential relationship to OotS as a whole. It's specifically the sort of thing we're not supposed to be putting in the index, therefore.

    Exactly. The closest aspect in the entire thing is the lack of any marketing companies being involved with the Kickstarter, which has nothing to do with the comic itself. As such, it fails to qualify under Rule B and thus isn't Index-worthy.

    I think it has a place in the Supporting the strip section. At least one person has given them money, presumably thinking they were helping support the strip. The Giant's tweets warn that they have no connection with him, and you won't support the strip by giving them money.

    While I support the idea of people not getting scammed, the Giant could have made a large news post of the main page, a stickied thread, or any number of other highly visible warnings about it. He did not. If you believe we should shoulder some responsibility to notify people of the potential for scam, you could always start a new thread for it, or sig it, but trying to shoehorn it into a thread where it doesn't belong is not the right approach, IMO.

    Also, as far as my understanding, nobody has given money under the assumption that they were supporting the strip; the bait is that they will help get more exposure for the target's own kickstarter. It requires a rather large mental leap to assume that in any way would support the strip, even under the assumption that the scamming company is legit.

    Not to break up the conversation on the applicability of Rule B, but I've got official-esque stuff to get started.


    CALLING FOR CONFIRMATION VOTE ON MULTIPLE QUOTES

    The inclusion of the posts below have been challenged. This vote will determine whether they remain in the Index or not.

    The quotes are as follows:


    Since we've had confusion on this before, the vote will be for which ones to keep, rather than yes or no. Simply vote "keep" for the quotes you support keeping; you don't have to mention ones you want removed (though you can vote "remove" on them if you prefer). If you want to make my job difficult really don't care about particular quotes, you can vote "no opinion" on those.

    You can vote individually ("Keep A, Keep C") or in a group ("Keep B, D, E"). "Keep all" is also a valid vote, as is "Remove all". ("No opinion on all" would be the same as not voting.)

    • Please bold your vote, it'll make it easier for me to notice when I go through and count everything.
    • The usual suggestion to avoid discussing quotes during the vote does not apply in this case.
    • Per Rule F4, inclusion by vote requires a quote to have two more votes to keep than votes to remove.


    Voting will be open until March 16th, 9PM EDT.
