Single Proposition: Apocalypse How

Go To

Vote up for yes, down for no.

At issue:

The second half of the scale measures scope; this is different than the first half, which measures severity. The scales should be separated so that cataclysms can be categorized more easily.

Separate the scales so that there are two; one that measures scale and another that measures severity. For example, a regional catastrophe that causes local ecosystem extinction is not the same as a planet-wide catastrophe that only sets humanity back a few technology levels. The classification of a given apocalypse would be the combination of its scale and severity.

Vote up if you agree, down if you do not.
