Assessing the Heal/Harm and Teleportation Bans
Type: 
Standard proposal

Associated Forum Threads: 

This proposal covers the convention that no skill can both heal damage and deal damage directly. There is a similar restriction that no skill which can teleport or create portals can also deal or heal damage. Both are undocumented policies from the older site that have been grandfathered forward, and are now due for reevaluation to see if they are still healthy for the site.

If any change is made, both the original rules and rationale for the past decision (as well as the rationale behind the current one) will be publicly documented in the wiki in case we or a future generation of the site which to revert or further modify the policy in the future.


Heal-Harm
What, if anything, do you feel should be done with the current heal/harm ban?

Teleportation
What, if anything, do you feel should be done about the current teleportation restrictions?

Gestalt
Should the two bans be assessed independently or as a set?

Proposal help:
Proposals are meant to be a way to formally make a request for the input of site members. Forum threads and five-star ratings are not accurate enough for the big things. So here's how this works:
  • If you change your mind after you vote, you will be able to go back in and delete or change your vote up until the proposal closes.
  • The form will be open for 2 weeks, after which it will automatically close.
  • If the original poster edits it in that timespan the timer will re-set. This is to make sure everyone can get a chance to weigh in.
  • Only users active when the proposal was created can vote on it. This is to avoid ballot stuffing.
  • No one, not even the original poster will be able to see the names or IP addresses of the people do vote.
  • After the two week window has passed, the proposal will close and results will be publicly availble in a tab on this page.
9 out of 9 potential voters (100 %) responsed to this proposal. 9 out of 9 potential voters active on the site while the proposal was open (100 %) responded to this proposal.

Granted that a c could use whatever element to teleport, but should be treated as a separate spell all together.
