Kiirion argues against 100% practices on a "principle". At no point in the thread for raising the default skill level to 50% were principles discussed. There was almost no disagreement to that idea at all, actually. Getting 49% absolutely free was no contest, but spending a practice to get 25% is a show-stopper. Kiirion, of course, never bothered to explain what "principle" could be applied to the 50% default.
Instead, the concession is that people can practice to 95%. No real reason given for why 95% exactly. Is 96% okay? Could we practice to 99% and still be okay "on principle", but 100% unacceptable? Why not make it 90%, then? Or outright reject the change?
At no point did anybody against a prac-to-100% give any argument against it that applied the "principles of learning" argument in a way consistent internally, in regards to how the game world works, or with the 50%-default change. There was also no elaboration given when pressed with something as simple as "Why?" or "Why that number but not another"? And yet that stance won, because Imp and Admin wanted it that way after a discussion - between only the two of them, of course - and their vote was the only one that actually mattered, faulty reasoning be damned.
So, let's start this up again. Practices to 100%. If it shouldn't happen, let's see an reason that actually stands up to scrutiny.
