Hi, guest person
Any rule may contain within it a precedence level. This shall be in the form of a statement within the rule of its precedence level. Precedence levels must be integer values from 1 to 5. Any rule that does not state a precedence is deemed to have a precedence level of 2.
When two rules of the same mutability level conflict with each other, precedence is determined as follows:
If exactly one of the rules claims or cede precedence specificly to the other rule (by number or other unambiguous reference) then that statement shall hold. Otherwise, a rule with a higher precedence level shall take precedence over a rule with a lower precedence level. Otherwise, a rule which claims general precedence over all other rules or all other rules of the same precedence will take precedence over one which doesn't. Otherwise, the rule which was created first shall take precedence. Otherwise, the rule which currently has the lower number shall take precedence.
This rule has a precedence level of 5 and takes precedence over all other rules.
