  1. Regarding the common calendar used for organising timelines and histories, it has been decided that Year 0 should be set at /jp/-/vt/ split, and time passes at the speed of plot. What should the current year be? Be noted that the year chosen is unrelated to the general tech level of the world.

  1. Following on the result of the last round of voting, what should be the nature of the common calendar used for the purpose of organising timelines and histories? This is an open-ended question, with the two main factors being voted on being:
  • /morig/: Year 0 should be /jp/-/vt/ split. Era should be marked as BVT and VTE. The current year should not be 1700-1800 (maybe 860?)
  • Sakuran: Year 0 should be /jp/-/vt/ split. Era should be marked as BVT and VTE. The current year should be 1735 VTE.
  • /who/: Abstain.
  • /pyon/: Year 0 should be /jp/-/vt/ split. No era name suggestions. The current year should be "like 800 for something?".
  • /nasa/: Abstain.
  • /wg/: Year 0 should be /jp/-/vt/ split. Era should be marked as BVT and VTE. The current year should be consistent with 2.'s result.
  • /meat/: Year 0 should be /jp/-/vt/ split. Era should be marked as BVT and VTE. The current year should be at least a few centuries, but not 1700-1800.
    Summary:
  • Year 0 should be /jp/-/vt/ split passes with 5 to 2 abstains.
  • Era should be marked as BVT and VTE passes with 4 to 3 abstain.
  • No majority for current year. It will be decided with a revote in the next round with no abstain.
  1. Based on the calendar discussed in 1., Should we decide on a loose thread-by-thread timescale? If so, please state your preferred scale e.g. 1 RL day = 1 in-game month. Be noted that non-concrete timescale e.g. "speed of plot" is also permissible.
  • /morig/: Speed of plot. After significant events, /vtwbg/ could have a "Time Advances" vote, where advancing the "current year" by a few years is proposed.
  • Sakuran: 1 week irl= 3 in-game months, so 1 month irl= 1 in-game year. Change to speed of plot if it serves as a tiebreaker.
  • /who/: Frozen.
  • /pyon/: Speed of plot.
  • /nasa/: Speed of plot.
  • /wg/: 1 day irl equals 1 week in-universe.
  • /meat/: Speed of plot.
    Summary: 4 for speed of plot; 1 for frozen; 1 for 1 week to 3 months; 1 for 1 day to 1 week. Speed of plot passes.
  1. As suggested by the Sakuran representative, should a non-reverse-engineerable, instantaneous communication system/device limited to the representatives of countries be introduced to the setting? Be noted that it is "not meant to give any significant power to the reps themselves; if another rep replaces a current one they get the device, but rather to explain how they talk to and organise deals with nations on the other side of the globe", according to the suggestion.
  • /morig/: No.
  • Sakuran: Yes.
  • /who/: No.
  • /pyon/: No.
  • /nasa/: No unless it can be intercepted by /nasa/.
  • /wg/: No.
  • /meat/: Yes.
    Summary: 5 for no; 2 for yes. No passes. Sorry Sakuran rep.

  1. Should /vtwbg/ adopts a common calendar for the purpose of organising timelines and histories? Be noted that this common calendar will not be imposed on any countries in-universe (although they can choose to adopt it as well), but is used strictly to provide a common reference frame for international events and histories. If it is adopted, the exact nature of this calendar, in particular when is year zero set, will be voted upon in the next round.
  • Sakuran: Yes. For the next round, I suggest Year 0 to be the Japonia-Vitia split. I'm alright with the pre and after 0th year time periods being either eras that restart at 0, or follow the irl model of eg PVT and ADD (Pre VT and Anno Discidium Dimensiva), though I prefer the later.
  • /morig/: Yes. The jp/vt split marking Year zero and splitting the timeline into BVT (Before /vt/) and VTE (/vt/ Era) or any other variation of such seems like a fine system.
  • /who/: Yes. Organizing everything into a neat timeline will make working things easier, even if some of us won't be using it. No proposal from my part however.
  • /nasa/: Yes.
  • /pyon/: Yes. year zero is the whenever was first post in /vt/ (not including >>1) or something like that. also by what factor are we multiplying the timescale from the real world? is /vt/ hundreds or thousands of years old? sorry if this was already discussed before
  • /wg/: Yes. I think it would be good to have a global calendar to help people in the thread with organization when necessary. Having the split from /jp/ serving as Year 0 makes the most sense to me as it's a global event that marks a new era for everyone.
  • /meat/: Yes.
  • /nasfaqg/: Yes. It should likely be zeroed in a the creation of /vt/, with /jp/-era lore being the "BC" of this world. Having a common time frame would help relate and coordinate events between generals.
  • /kfp/: Yes, however generals should be free to have their own custom calendar as long as they always present dates along with the unified calendar date.
    Summary: Yes passes unanimously
