N00b Levy Bill

Overview

N00b rights – rather, the curtailing of n00b rights – was a major issue approached by the 2007 Parliament on several occasions throughout its session. The N00b Levy Bill was the first such piece of legislation and, if passed, would have been a serious blow to the n00b rights movement.

History

On August 19, 2007, Gladi (E) proposed that Parliament establish a new levy amongst N00bs in order to raise money for its budget, as well as a commission to oversee its enforcement. This proposal was divisive, garnering support from Steffen (FFF), Superdude (PPP), and Kabraloth (FFF) but strong opposition from The Bald Imposter (KETWIWBP), Historyfan 92 (YSP), and Flocculencio (KETWIWBP).

Haggis (E) proposed amending Gladi's proposal and called for forcing all n00bs to post in separate parts of AH.Com until they reached a certain to-be-defined limit. This was also opposed by The Bald Imposter (KETWIWBP), Historyfan92 (YSP), and Flocculencio (KETWIWBP).

Ran Exilis (E) proposed that the government should endorse the capture of N00bs and their sale into slavery in order to raise money for its budget as an alternative to the levy. Once again, this was opposed by The Bald Imposter (KETWIWBP), Historyfan92 (YSP), and Flocculencio (KETWIWBP).

Text of Legislation

ARTICLE I

Section 1: Parliament shall establish a new levy amongst N00bs in order to raise money for its budget.

Section 2: A commission shall be established to oversee the enforcement of the levy.

ARTICLE II

All N00bs shall be forced to post in separate parts of AH.Com until they've reached a certain limit.

ARTICLE III

The Parliament shall endorse the capture of N00bs and their sale into slavery.

Results

Despite strong support, six endorsements to three opposed, this bill was never actual voted upon and not endorsed unilaterally by the Evil Party and/or the Yorkshire Socialist Party after a working majority was established. Had this bill been enacted, it would have been a major blow to the n00b rights movement and perhaps increased support for either the Shadow Parliament (Fall 2007) or Anti-Parliament (May 2008) movement, as well as the Noob Party (October/November 2007).
