Hi, guest person


379/5: Consistency Good

Rules will not change their numbers unless the rules state that the rule's number will change.

Modify Rule 108 to be mutable. Then Remove the second paragraph ("If a rule is repealed and reenacted, it receives the number of the proposal to reenact it. If a rule is amended or transmuted, it receives the number of the proposal to amend or transmute it. If an amendment is amended or repealed, the entire rule of which it is a part receives the number of the proposal to amend or repeal the amendment.") Modify Rule 108 to be immutable again. Remove the previous 4 lines and this one from the rule.

[This rule requires unanimity, but it is one that the Admin should have made before the game started. If anyone intends to vote against this, could we please discuss it on the mailing list first and resolve that problem instead of letting this continue another week. Rho is right, this rule is non-good]

383/1: On the scope of rules over rule-changes

[ I've been doing some reading of the rules, and I think a couple of things are not stated (such as, the exact meaning of "rule-change") which could be used to do some nasty things to the system with enough thought. This should help plug it. However, I want to get this into a form people can agree to, so I'd like to (as per rule 111) delay voting on this rule until people are happy with it. ]

A rule-proposal is a rule-change. A rule created by a rule-change is *not* a rule-change, and is bound by the rules as a corpus. If the rule itself is not immutable it cannot create, ammend or repeal any immutable rules. Should a system of precedence be agreed upon, a rule may not affect a rule from a precedence above its own.

387/2: Amendment to rule 323

That rule 323 be amended as follows:

Replace the phrase 'orabused' with 'or abused'. [Was that there for On Speling?]

Replace the phrase 'shall be deemed to be presented with' with 'may claim'. [A little neater, and fits better with the new final part.]

Add the phrase 'If a player is allowed to claim an item of food or drink, but does not state which they want within a week, they forfeit their right to that food or drink.'.

388/1: Nomic Points

There exist things known as Nomic Points. Nomic Points can be reffered to as Points for the sake of brevity. Nomic Points cannot be created or destroyed except by this rule. Upon the acceptance of this proposal, a Nomic Bank is created, which contains an infinite number of Nomic Points. The Nomic Bank will give Points if any rule orders it to.

If a player votes in favour of a proposal that is accepted, the Nomic Bank will give them five Points. If a player votes against a proposal that is rejected, the Nomic Bank will give them five Points.
