Rule 530/0(m) : Shared Proposals
Any proposal may be designated by its author a "shared proposal." This designation may be added or removed at any time before the proposal is voted on.

When designating a proposal shared, its author must also specify players with whom to share. The number of players which may be shared with is limited by the number of current players, but otherwise any number of players may be specified.

If a shared proposal passes, the points which would be rewarded to its author under rule 222 are instead divided amongst the author and the players e specified. Points shall be divided in integral amounts, and the author receives any leftover points which cannot be split evenly amongst the author and the players specified.

If a shared proposal fails, its author alone takes the penalties, according to any other rules which deal penalties for failed proposals.

Rule 549/0(m) : Crimes
1) Any entity who performs an action defined by the Rules to be a Crime during the current or previous 3 turns, or fails to perform an action where such failure is defined by the Rules to be a Crime during the previous 3 turns, shall be subject to whatever penalty the Rules prescribe for that Crime upon the execution of a Sentencing Order executed consequent to a judicial finding that e did in fact commit that Crime.

2) The imposition of penalties for the commission of a Crime shall be by Sentencing Order(s). Upon a judicial finding that an entity has committed a Crime, the Judge so finding shall execute Sentencing Orders sufficient to implement the penalty required by the Rules for that Crime. If the Rules specify a range of penalties, then the Judge executing the Sentencing Order shall determine the exact penalty within the stated range.

3) The punishment for a Crime shall be whatever was specified by the Rules at the time the action so designated as a Crime was committed, even if the Rule or Rules which specified the punishment, or which designated the action as a Crime have since been amended or repealed.This Rule takes precedence over any Rule which specifies a different penalty for a Crime.

4) No action is a Crime unless defined as such by the Rules. If the Rules define an act to be a Crime but fail to prescribe a penalty for that act, then there is no penalty for that act.

5) Any RFJ whose Statement alleges that an entity has, through action or inaction, committed a Crime shall be dismissed if there is a prior RFJ, the statement of which alleges that the same entity has, through the same action or inaction, committed the same Crime, and which was itself not dismissed.

6) A RFJ alleging that a Player has committed a Crime shall not be judged TRUE unless the evidence is sufficient to be certain of that Judgment beyond reasonable doubt. Furthermore, it is a defense to any accusation of a Crime that the Player reasonably believed that eir actions were not a Crime at the time e performed them, or that e reasonably did not know that e was required to perform an action, when such nonperformance is defined as a Crime. No Player shall be convicted of a Crime if this defense applies.
