Repealed Rule 103. A rule-change is any of the following: (1) the
enactment, repeal, or amendment of a mutable rule; (2) the enactment, repeal,
or amendment of an amendment of a mutable rule; or (3) the transmutation of an
immutable rule into a mutable rule or vice versa.
(Note: This definition implies that, at least initially, all new rules are mutable; immutable rules, as long as they are immutable, may not be amended or repealed; mutable rules, as long as they are mutable, may be amended or repealed; any rule of any status may be transmuted; no rule is absolutely immune to change.)
[Initial Rule; Transmuted by proposal 342 (Dan, Constitutionalist), 30 Jan 2003.]
Repealed Rule 201. Players shall alternate in clockwise order, taking
one whole turn apiece. Turns may not be skipped or passed, and parts of turns
may not be omitted. All players begin with zero points.
In mail and computer games, players shall alternate in alphabetical order by surname.
[Initial Rule; Repealed by amendment by Proposal 344 (Dylan, Flexicrat), 3 Feb 2003.]
Repealed Rule 202. One turn consists of two parts in this order: (1)
proposing one rule-change and having it voted on, and (2) throwing one die
once and adding the number of points on its face to one's score.
In mail and computer games, instead of throwing a die, players subtract 291 from the ordinal number of their proposal and multiply the result by the fraction of favorable votes it received, rounded to the nearest integer. (This yields a number between 0 and 10 for the first player, with the upper limit increasing by one each turn; more points are awarded for more popular proposals.)
[Initial Rule; Repealed by amendment by Proposal 343 (Dave, Neo-Nomic Freedom Alliance), 30 Jan 2003.]
Repealed Rule 203. A rule-change is adopted if and only if the vote is unanimous among the eligible voters. If this rule is not amended by the end of the second complete circuit of turns, it automatically changes to require only a simple majority. [Note: This occurred after the failure of proposal 306.] [Initial Rule, Repealed by amendment by proposal 338 (Dave), 29 Jan 2003.]
Repealed Rule 206. When a proposed rule-change is defeated, the player who proposed it loses 10 points. [Initial Rule; Repealed by amendment by proposal 312.]
Repealed Rule 207. Each player always has exactly one vote. [Initial Rule; Repealed by amendment by proposal 330.]
Repealed Rule 208. The winner is the first player to achieve 100
In mail and computer games, the winner is the first player to achieve 200 (positive) points.
[Initial Rule, Repealed by amendment by proposal 321.]
Repealed Rule 210. Players may not conspire or consult on the making of
future rule-changes unless they are team-mates.
The first paragraph of this rule does not apply to games by mail or computer.
[Initial Rule, Repealed by proposal by Proposal 339.]
Repealed Rule 315.
Should circumstance dictate that only 2 players be able to participate in and
complete votes, then a unaimous vote shall be considered "a majority."
[Enacted by Proposal 315 (Dylan); Repealed by proposal by Proposal 331 (Dan), 29 Jan 2003.]
Repealed Rule 317.
Should a person vote "nay" on a rule change of his own design and proposal, and should this rule change have been proposed solely and not in co-sponsorship with any other player, then that vote shall be considered an immediate resignation from the game.
i. This resignation shall last for a period of the next two votes, no matter what form they take.
ii. Upon reinstatement, the player shall lose half of his points, if his point total is >0, or shall lose 25 points if his point total is <=0. [Enacted 19 Jan 2003, Proposed by Dylan; Repealed by amendment by proposal 319.]
Repealed Rule 321.
The winner is the first player to achieve 200 (positive) points.
