Thanks @aargh for this thread. I honestly missed this before posting the sigprop (no intention to stand on anyone’s toes!). Now that the sigprop has passed, please see below for a draft core prop; please comment!
Once it’s all agreed I’ve been told @Moon is the man to make this official somehow.
(also, I’m just guessing the agip number should be sequential)

Until recently there have been no limits on the number of gotchis an address can borrow at the same time, either from a whitelist or from the open (non whitelisted) market.
This was recently changed for a short period to a limit of 1 borrowed gotchi on the open market and 1 by default on all whitelists. A whitelist owner can change the number of allowed borrowed gotchis per address.
This change to the open market was put in place as an experiment in anti botting measures. Community members had reported difficulty in securing a gotchi to borrow for channelling, particularly around the 0:00UTC reset time, which was attributed to bots scraping all the best rental offers before humans get a chance.
The change saw Gotchigang report an increase in available gotchis to borrow on the open market around reset time which is a positive, and this reversed when the limit was removed.
On the negative side, other Gotchigang borrowing through the open market reported being unable to fully channel their aaltars due to not being able to rent enough gotchis. This is particularly true for borrowers who’ve paid for a long term rental and are now stuck with that 1 gotchi, unable to borrow any more for additional channellings. This issue will tend to grow over time as people level up their aaltars and generate more channelling opportunities. The limit of 1 per address on the open market is a disincentive to levelling up aaltars and buying more land for those without enough gotchis who prefer longer term rentals. It also limits the demand for lending out gotchis long term, however it pushes people to approach guilds and whitelist owners for spots which is a positive for the social element of the game.
A poll was run in the weekly DAO Hangout by CoderDan suggesting most Gotchigang wanted the allowed number of borrowed gotchis from the open market to equal the number of parcels a wallet address holds plus 1, as a balance between a free for all and a hard limit of 1.

Now that the experiment has concluded and the SigProp has passed it’s time to vote on the below:

Set the limit on the number of borrowed gotchis a wallet address can hold from the open market to:
- The number of parcels in the borrower’s wallet plus 1
