From: the Speaker  <palnatoke@g...>
Date: Wed Apr 21, 1999 3:06pm
Subject: deNomic - Redistribution of Proposals

 
Ballot:
Pack470-472    Timing Package
473    Amend 316
474    Safe Voting
Pack475-477    Timing Package - Counterproposal

The voting for these proposals begins Sunday (25.4.1999) at 08.00
and ends Sunday (2.5.1999) at 08.00.

[Rune has submitted a proposal and a package. Since it is still Wednesday, I
have chosen to make a redistribution.
Rune's package proposals will only be distributed if his package isn't
adopted - and then at the rate of two per week.]

#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#
The proposals and packages:
#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#


Pack470-472    Timing Package

Ole has proposed the following package:

The Package consists of three proposals:

1)    Transmute 109
2)    Amend 109
3)    If 109 has been transmuted, transmute it again.

1) and 3) are rather obvious.

2) goes like this:

Amend:
"Rule 109 - immutable
Making Proposals


The proper way to make a proposal is to send it by electronic mail to the
current Speaker. The Speaker will then distribute the proposal to all
Players. The prescribed voting period is the first full Turn after the
Speaker has distributed the proposal."

to have this wording:

"Rule # - immutable
Making Proposals


The proper way to make a proposal is to send it by electronic mail to the
current Speaker. The Speaker will distribute the proposal to all
Players. The prescribed voting period begins the moment the proposal has
been distributed, and ends at the beginning of the Turn after the
distribution."

#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#
473    Amend 316
Ole proposes this:

Amend:
"Rule 316 - mutable
Vegetables for Public Servants


The Speaker receives one vegetable every time a vote is decided.
A judge receives three vegetables for every point he/she makes a decision
about, except if the point in question is found to be undecided.
Other public servants are paid according to subsequent rules.
All payments must be made by the holder of the Office of Agriculture or, if
there is no holder of any Office of Agriculture, the Speaker."

to have this wording:

"Rule 316 - mutable
The Agricultural Foundation


The Agricultural Foundation initially consists of twenty-five generic
Vegetables.
All salaries for Judges and Public Servants are paid by the Agricultural
Foundation.
The Officer of Agriculture receives a salary of one Vegetable per Turn.
The Speaker receives a salary of one Vegetable every time a vote is decided.
A Judge receives a salary of three Vegetables upon making a Judgement,
unless the Judgement is undecided.
The Officer of Agriculture decides which of the kinds of Vegetables in the
Agricultural Foundation, salaries are to be paid in.
Unless otherwise defined, salaries are to be paid on Wednesdays.
The Officer of Agriculture administrates the Agricultural Foundation, and
may make no payments from the Agricultural Foundation, unless those payments
are prescribed in the rules."

#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#
474    Safe Voting


Rune reproposes the "Safe Voting" rule, which was dropped at the
administrative review:

"Safe Voting

When sending their votes to the Speaker, the Citizens must individually
identify each proposal in question.  If a proposal has a number and/or a
title, the identification must include either the number or the title.
General directions, such as 'I vote for all proposals' are not valid.

This rule similarly applies to votes on other matters than proposals."


>The object of this proposal is to make it less likely that players vote
>for/against a proposal without actually reading it.

#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#
Pack475-477    Timing Package - Counterproposal

Rune suggests the following revised timing package instead of the one that
Ole has put forth.

The reason for this counter proposal is to prevent having rule 109 and rule
205 say two different things.

The package contains the following proposals:

1) Transmute 109
2) Amend 109
3) Amend 205

2) goes like this:

Amend:
"Rule 109
Making Proposals


The proper way to make a proposal is to send it by electronic mail to the
current Speaker. The Speaker will then distribute the proposal to all
Players. The prescribed voting period is the first full Turn after the
Speaker has distributed the proposal."

to have this wording:

"Making Proposals

The proper way to make a proposal is to send it by electronic mail to the
current Speaker. At the prescribed time, the Speaker shall distribute the
proposal to all
Players."


3) goes like this:

Amend:
"Rule 205
The Prescribed Voting Period


The prescribed voting period on a proposal is the first full Turn after the
Speaker has distributed the proposal."

to have the following wording:

"The Prescribed Voting Period

The prescribed voting period begins the moment the proposal has
been distributed.  The voting period ends when the next Turn begins, unless
the period would then be less than 48 hours.  In  the latter case, the
voting period is extended by one full Turn."

Lots of Sheep
Grab a Sheep
But only one
And keep a firm grip
The Butchers
Blood Works as Glue
Getting rid of Evidence
Exposed by the Smell
Either Freeze or be Ugly
I should hope not
One Equals Two
That blood thing again
But whose chops are dropped?
Bribery
The Nothern Fashion Factory
Still more blood?
So you would rather be naked?
Fashion and Anti-fashion can't combine
Oh he's so cute
Random piety
Piety-intoxication makes the Gods see double
So they overrate the food
But still don't like humans dressed as sheep
Still Costly looks count
They can't see the difference
The Enigma Rule
Can't count without light
Now that's better
Chops must be kept next to the body
Envy
Seeds come and come
Spring, spring, happy spring
There's whisky in the jar?
So that's where they come from!
One egg is ten.
One seed in each pocket
Seeding the seeds
Even worse than babies
And no baby-sitters
Don''t mix seeds and water
When they aren't busy voting
Finally
Central Vegetables, Inc.
So perhaps it is the winner
Always check the stock before paying
Acornian wealth
Generic poverty
Sell your babies
Best acorns in town!
No artificial genes added!
Just add tea, and it's real!

Subject: deNomic Rules April 25th

  deNomic
CURRENT RULES (APRIL 25TH, 1999)

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 101 - immutable
Obey The Rules


All players must always abide by all the rules then in effect, in the form
in which they are then in effect, and interpreted in accordance with
currently existing game custom. Until such time as they are legally
transmuted, Rules 101-115 are immutable, and Rules 201-221 are mutable.

[Initial rule 101]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 102 - immutable
The Speaker and Citizens


Each Player shall be either a Citizen or the Speaker; no Player may be both
at the same time. There will always be one Speaker. The term "Player" refers
to any Citizen or the Speaker.

[Initial rule 102]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 103 - immutable
What Is A Rule Change?


A rule change must be one of the following: (1) the enactment, repeal, or
amendment of a mutable rule; (2) the enactment, repeal, or amendment of an
amendment; or (3) the transmutation of an immutable rule into a mutable
rule, or vice versa.

[Initial rule 103]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 104 - immutable
Adopting Proposals


All proposals made in the proper way shall be voted on. Three conditions
must be satisfied for a proposal to be adopted: (1) a quorum must have been
achieved; (2) the required number of votes must have been cast in favour of
the proposal; and (3) the prescribed voting period must have elapsed or all
voters have cast a vote, whichever is first.

[Initial rule 104]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 105 - immutable
Proposals Must Be Written Down


Any proposed rule change must be written down (or otherwise communicated in
print or electronic media) before it is voted on. If adopted, it must guide
play in the form in which it was voted on.

[Initial rule 105]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 106 - immutable
When Proposals Can Take Effect


A rule change will take effect when either the prescribed voting period has
elapsed, or all voters have cast their vote, whichever is first.
No rule change may have retroactive application.

[Initial rule 106]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 107 - immutable
Numbering Proposals


The Speaker shall give each proposed rule change an ordinal number for
reference. The numbers shall begin with 301, and each rule change proposed
in the proper way shall receive the next successive ordinal, whether or not
the proposal is adopted. The effective ordinal number of a rule is the
ordinal number of the most recent change to that rule.

[Initial rule 107]
[Clarified by Judgement 18]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 108 - immutable
Mutable/Immutable Inconsistencies


Mutable rules that are inconsistent in some way with some immutable rule
(except by proposing to transmute it) are wholly void and without effect.
They do not implicitly transmute immutable rules into mutable rules and at
the same time amend them. Rule changes that transmute immutable rules into
mutable rules will be effective only if they explicitly state their
transmuting effect.

[Initial rule 108]
[Clarified by Judgement 8]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 109 - immutable
Making Proposals


The proper way to make a proposal is to send it by electronic mail to the
current Speaker. The Speaker will then distribute the proposal to all
Players. The prescribed voting period is the first full Turn after the
Speaker has distributed the proposal.

[Initial rule 109]
[Changed by Administrative Review, April 6th, 1999]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 110 [transmuted - see Rule 348]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 111 - immutable
Forfeiting The Game


A player always has the option to forfeit the game rather than continue to
play or incur a game penalty. No penalty worse than losing, in the judgement
of the player to incur it, may be imposed.

[Initial rule 111]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 112 - immutable
At Least One Mutable Rule


There must always be at least one mutable rule. The adoption of rule changes
must never become completely impermissible.

[Initial rule 112]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 113 - immutable
Rule Changes That Affect Rule Changing Rules


Rule changes that affect rules needed to allow or apply rule changes are as
permissible as other rule changes. Even rule changes that amend or repeal
their own authority are permissible. No rule change is impermissible solely
on account of the self-reference or self-application of a rule.

[Initial rule 113]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 114 - immutable
Voting Options


Voters may vote either for or against any proposal during the prescribed
voting period. Citizens should send their vote by electronic mail to the
Speaker before the end of the voting period. Voters who do not vote within
the prescribed period shall be deemed to have abstained.

[Initial rule 114]

Subject: deNomic Sv: Game State Document, 25.4.1999

 
 Rune gains 10 points and loses 10 points and receives 1 Insistance Point

Yes, I gain 10 points, but I only lose 5 points as it was a package that was defeated (cf. rule 394).   I find it unclear whether insistance points should be awarded for defeated packages.

 Because the Officer of Agriculture has no Vegetables (to pay to the Zeitgeist), all Players lose 1 Vegetable

No, by judgment 5 (attached), the holder of the office has an unlimited amount of vegetables for official purposes.   I quote:

"The office of agriculture has an unlimited amount of vegetables, generic as well as other."

Though many rules have been changed since that judgment was made, I don't think that any of the changes invalidate the judgment.


I offer myself as a voluntary judge.

Subject: deNomic - CFJ 5 - Judgement
Date: Thu, 11 Feb 1999 19:41:37 +0100
Peter has judged on CFJ 5:

The Statement:
"Rule 316 states that the Speaker and Judges shall receive a number of Vegetables, but not the source of these Vegetables. Public servants other than the Speaker and Judges, on the other hand, shall be paid by the holder of the Office of Agriculture." is found to be TRUE.

Peter has a number of comments:

Comment: The office of agriculture has an unlimited amount of vegetables, generic as well as other. The holder of the office of agriculture do NOT have personal access to these vegetables, but is the elected administrator of these vegetables and can distribute them according to the rules. The holder of the office of agriculture can according to rule 311 produce one vegetable a week. This vegetable is the private possession of holder of the office of agriculture. Comment: the payment should be made by the holder of agriculture, but the vegetables should come from the office itself and not from the personal belongings of the holder. Comment: all points in the arguments well taken into account, the above rulings shall stand! Comment: Perhaps we will later see problems concerning vegetable inflation, but at that time we shall deal with the problems when they arise.

Hej Ole

Du er rigtigt kommet p€ ¦å overarbejde...

 After the adoption of proposal 316, the Speaker receives one vegetable
each
 time a proposal is adopted. From that same time, a Judge receives three vegetables upon delivering a Judgment of TRUE or FALSE.

Ja, men s€ ¦å vidt jeg forst€ ¦år reglen, er det mig, der m€ ¦å punge ud med disse gr€ ¦ønsager.   Jeg mener ikke, at de kan modtage flere end jeg har at give - og da jeg ikke har nok, bliver jeg sikkert upopul€ ¦ær som "gr€ ¦ønsagsminister". M€ ¦åske vil jeg blive tvunget til at g€ ¦å af.

For at sikre fremtidige udbetalinger, vil jeg nu opkr€ ¦æve en gr€ ¦ønsagsskat, som f€ ¦ølger:

Alle spillere (mig selv inklusive) skal aflevere € ¦én generisk gr€ ¦ønsag til mig i skat.   Spillere, der ikke kan betale, mister 3 point.

I call for Judgement on this Statement:

"Rule 316 states that the Speaker and Judges shall receive a number of Vegetables, but not the source of these Vegetables. This statement is judged to be true Comment: The office of agriculture has an unlimited amount of vegetables, generic as well as other. The holder of the office of agriculture do NOT have personal access to these vegetables, but is the elected administrator of these vegetables and can distribute them according to the rules. The holder of the office of agriculture can according to rule 311 produce one vegetable a week. This vegetable is the private possession of holder of the office of agriculture.

Public servants other than the Speaker and Judges, on the other hand, shall be paid by the holder of the Office of Agriculture." This is judged to be true Comment: the payment should be made by the holder of agriculture, but the vegetables should come from the office itself and not from the personal belongings of the holder.

Comment: all points in the arguments well taken into account, the above rulings shall stand! Comment: Perhaps we will later see problems concerning vegetable inflation, but at that time we shall deal with the problems when they arise.

Ballot:
419    Lots of Sheep
420    Grab a Sheep
478    Amend 213
479    Calvinball

The voting for these proposals begins Sunday (2.5.1999) at 08.00
and ends Sunday (9.5.1999) at 08.00.

[Rune's package proposals are coming out into the light- at the rate of two
per week.]

#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#
The proposals and packages:
#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#


419    Lots of Sheep

Rune has proposed this new rule:

"Lots of Sheep


On West Farm there is an unlimited amount of sheep."


#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#


420    Grab a Sheep

Rune has proposed this new rule:

"Grab a Sheep


A player in West Farm may take one sheep."

#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#


478    Amend 213

Ole has proposed to amend:
"Rule 313 - mutable
Vegetable Taxation


The holder of the Office of Agriculture may tax the players for vegetables.
The taxation must be performed according to rules of equality decided by the
holder of the Office. The players must then pay to the holder of the Office
the number and type of vegetables due. If a player has too few vegetables to
be able to pay, he/she loses 3 points for each vegetable he/she is short of
payment.
Any player may present the holder of the Office with a
vote-of-no-confidence, referring to a specific taxation (not necessarily a
vote-of-no-confidence in the holder of the Office him/herself). If this vote
passes, then the taxation in question, and subsequent taxations up to the
time the vote is decided, are deemed void, and must be paid back.

If there is no holder of any Office of Agriculture, then the Speaker assumes
this rôle for the purpose of this rule."

to have this wording:

"Rule 313 - mutable
Vegetable Taxation


The Officer of Agriculture may once a Turn tax the Players for Vegetables.
The taxation must be of one (or more) of the following kinds:
1)    Wealth Tax, being a share of the Players' Vegetable holdings at the
beginning of the Turn,
2)    Income Tax, being a share of the Players' Vegetable gain during the
Turn,
3)    Poll Tax, being a number of Vegetables from each Player, or
4)    Value Added Tax, being a share to be added to every Vegetable
transaction duuring the Turn.

The Officer must announce the kind of taxation as well as the tax share for
a given Turn no later than 60 hours before the beginning of the Turn.
All tax shares for a given kind of taxation for a given Turn must be the
same for all players.
All Taxes for a given Turn are paid at the end of the Turn.
If a Player has too few Vegetables to be able to pay his/her taxes, he/she
loses 3 points for each Vegetable he/she is short of payment.
All taxes are paid to the Agricultural Foundation."


#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#¤#


479    Calvinball

Ole has proposed this :

"Rule # - mutable
Calvinball

Two or more Players may agree to play a sub-game within deNomic.
A sub-game may have any and all rules, as the participating Players see fit.
Such rules are not considered part of the Rules of deNomic.
The winner of a sub-game may, however, only be rewarded by the game of
deNomic to the extent
defined in this Rule.

If all the Players of deNomic participate in a sub-game, the winner of the
sub-game shall receive at most three Vegetables as salary, as if he/she were
a Public Servant.
If more than half the Players of deNomic participate in a sub-game, the
winner of the sub-game shall receive at most two Vegetables as salary, as if
he/she were a Public Servant.
If less than half the Players of deNomic participate in a sub-game, the
winner of the sub-game shall receive at most one Vegetable as salary, as if
he/she were a Public Servant.
If only one Player of deNomic participates in a sub-game, there can be no
winner of the sub-game.

The default prize for a sub-game is one Vegetable.
Participation is declared to the Speaker.
Sub-games can be played on calvinball@egroups.com ."

From: the Speaker  <palnatoke@g...>
Date: Sun May 2, 1999 8:30am
Subject: deNomic Rules as of May 2nd

  deNomic
CURRENT RULES (APRIL 25TH, 1999)

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 101 - immutable
Obey The Rules


All players must always abide by all the rules then in effect, in the form
in which they are then in effect, and interpreted in accordance with
currently existing game custom. Until such time as they are legally
transmuted, Rules 101-115 are immutable, and Rules 201-221 are mutable.

[Initial rule 101]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 102 - immutable
The Speaker and Citizens


Each Player shall be either a Citizen or the Speaker; no Player may be both
at the same time. There will always be one Speaker. The term "Player" refers
to any Citizen or the Speaker.

[Initial rule 102]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 103 - immutable
What Is A Rule Change?


A rule change must be one of the following: (1) the enactment, repeal, or
amendment of a mutable rule; (2) the enactment, repeal, or amendment of an
amendment; or (3) the transmutation of an immutable rule into a mutable
rule, or vice versa.

[Initial rule 103]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 104 - immutable
Adopting Proposals


All proposals made in the proper way shall be voted on. Three conditions
must be satisfied for a proposal to be adopted: (1) a quorum must have been
achieved; (2) the required number of votes must have been cast in favour of
the proposal; and (3) the prescribed voting period must have elapsed or all
voters have cast a vote, whichever is first.

[Initial rule 104]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 105 - immutable
Proposals Must Be Written Down


Any proposed rule change must be written down (or otherwise communicated in
print or electronic media) before it is voted on. If adopted, it must guide
play in the form in which it was voted on.

[Initial rule 105]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 106 - immutable
When Proposals Can Take Effect


A rule change will take effect when either the prescribed voting period has
elapsed, or all voters have cast their vote, whichever is first.
No rule change may have retroactive application.

[Initial rule 106]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 107 - immutable
Numbering Proposals


The Speaker shall give each proposed rule change an ordinal number for
reference. The numbers shall begin with 301, and each rule change proposed
in the proper way shall receive the next successive ordinal, whether or not
the proposal is adopted. The effective ordinal number of a rule is the
ordinal number of the most recent change to that rule.

[Initial rule 107]
[Clarified by Judgement 18]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 108 - immutable
Mutable/Immutable Inconsistencies


Mutable rules that are inconsistent in some way with some immutable rule
(except by proposing to transmute it) are wholly void and without effect.
They do not implicitly transmute immutable rules into mutable rules and at
the same time amend them. Rule changes that transmute immutable rules into
mutable rules will be effective only if they explicitly state their
transmuting effect.

[Initial rule 108]
[Clarified by Judgement 8]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 109 [transmuted - see Rule 475]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 110 [transmuted - see Rule 348]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 111 - immutable
Forfeiting The Game


A player always has the option to forfeit the game rather than continue to
play or incur a game penalty. No penalty worse than losing, in the judgement
of the player to incur it, may be imposed.

[Initial rule 111]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 112 - immutable
At Least One Mutable Rule


There must always be at least one mutable rule. The adoption of rule changes
must never become completely impermissible.

[Initial rule 112]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 113 - immutable
Rule Changes That Affect Rule Changing Rules


Rule changes that affect rules needed to allow or apply rule changes are as
permissible as other rule changes. Even rule changes that amend or repeal
their own authority are permissible. No rule change is impermissible solely
on account of the self-reference or self-application of a rule.

[Initial rule 113]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 114 - immutable
Voting Options


Voters may vote either for or against any proposal during the prescribed
voting period. Citizens should send their vote by electronic mail to the
Speaker before the end of the voting period. Voters who do not vote within
the prescribed period shall be deemed to have abstained.

[Initial rule 114]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 115 - immutable
Permissibility Of The Unprohibited


Whatever is not explicitly prohibited or regulated by a rule is permitted
and unregulated, with the sole exception of changing the rules, which is
permitted only when a rule or set of rules explicitly or implicitly permits
it.

[Initial rule 115]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 201 [amended - see Rule 303]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 203 - mutable
Required Number Of Votes


The number of votes required to pass a proposal is two-thirds of the votes
legally cast within the prescribed voting period.

[Initial rule 203]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 204 - mutable
One Voter One Vote


Each Voter has exactly one vote.

[Initial rule 204]
[Clarified by Judgement 4]
[Clarified by Judgement 14]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 205 [amended - see Rule 477]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 206 - mutable
When Proposals Take Effect


An adopted proposal takes effect at the moment that the prescribed voting
period ends.

[Initial rule 206]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 207 [amended - see Rule 345]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 208 - mutable
Scoring When A Proposal Is Defeated


When a proposed rule change is defeated, the player who proposed it loses 10
points.

[Initial rule 208]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 209 [amended - see Rule 358]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 210 [amended - see Rule 349]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 211 - mutable
Invoking Judgement


Any player who has a question or complaint about any matter concerning the
laws and their interpretation may email their statement to the Speaker, who
will then distribute it to the rest of the Citizens. A call for judgement is
then incurred on that statement. The Player who made the statement to be
judged is referred to as the Caller of that particular judgement.

[Initial rule 211]
[Changed by Administrative Review, April 6th, 1999]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 212 - mutable
Selecting A Judge


When Judgement has been called for, a Judge is randomly selected from among
the registered players, excluding the Caller, by the Speaker.

[Initial rule 212]
[Clarified by Judgement 22]
[Changed by Administrative Review, April 6th, 1999]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 213 - mutable
Delivering Judgement


A Judge has exactly one week in which to post an official Judgement. A Judge
who fails to deliver Judgement within that period is penalised 10 points.

[Initial rule 213]
[Changed by Administrative Review, April 6th, 1999]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 214 - mutable
Three Possible Judgements


There are only three possible Judgements: (1) True; (2) False; or (3)
Undecided. A Judgement may be accompanied by reasons and arguments, but any
such reasons and arguments form no part of the official Judgement itself.

[Initial rule 214]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 215 - mutable
Judgements Must Accord With The Rules


All Judgements must be in accordance with all the rules then in effect. When
the rules are silent, inconsistent, or unclear on the statement in question,
however, then the Judge shall consider currently existing game custom and
the spirit of the game in reaching a decision.

[Initial rule 215]
[Clarified by Judgement 6]
[Clarified by Judgement 19]
[Clarified by Judgement 20]
[Clarified by Judgement 21]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 216 - mutable
Judgements Are Not Rules


If a statement on which Judgement has been called is Judged to be true, and
that Judgement is not overruled, it does not thereby become a rule, or any
part of a rule. It merely becomes an explicit part of currently accepted
game custom.

[Initial rule 216]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 217 - mutable
Overturning Judgements


At any time in the week following the posting of a Judgement of "true" or
"false", any player may propose that the Judgement be overruled, i.e.
changed to "undecided". If that proposal is adopted, according to whatever
rules are currently in effect for the adoption of proposals, then the
Judgement is overruled, and the Judge who made it penalised 20 points.

[Initial rule 217]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 218 - mutable
Registered Players


A player is any person who is registered as a player. No person may register
as a player more than once concurrently. Anyone is allowed to observe the
game and participate in discussion of any issue, but no person who is not a
player may make a proposal, or vote on any proposal, or call for judgement,
or judge, or score points, or win the game.

[Initial rule 218]
[Clarified by Judgement 1]
[Clarified by Judgement 11]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 219 [amended - see Rule 350]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 220 - mutable
Voters


The term Voters, as used in the rules, refers to all players, and anything
or anyone else that is eligible to vote.

[Initial rule 220]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 221 [amended - see Rule 363]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 222 - mutable
Timing


The basic time unit of deNomic is a Turn. Each Turn begins Sunday at 08.00
hours and ends the following Sunday at 08.00 hours.

[Created by Administrative Review, April 6th, 1999]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 223 - mutable
Standing in Line


Each Player has a Proposal Queue, consisting of Proposals, Protoproposals
and Packages, collectively known as Queue Entries.
All Proposal Queues are administered by the Speaker.
When the Speaker receives a Queue Entry from a Player, the Queue Entry is
placed in the rear end of the Player's Proposal Queue.
Each Wednesday, the Speaker must distribute the two frontmost Queue Entries
from each Player. Those Queue Entries are then removed from the Player's
Proposal Queue.
A Player may at any time withdraw a non-distributed Queue Entry from his/her
Proposal Queue.

[Created by Administrative Review, April 6th, 1999]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 224 - mutable
Time


The time in deNomic is measured as in Denmark.

[Created by Administrative Review, April 6th, 1999]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 225 [amended - see Rule 417]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 303 - mutable
Quorum


Quorum is defined to be 30% of the players. Voters who are not players do
not count for the purpose of determining quorum.

[Initial rule 201]
[Amended by Proposal 303]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 304 - mutable
Knowing your Ants


By stating his/her intention to do so, a player may lose a number of points
equal to the number of an Electric Ant. The player may then predict, what
the said Ant will vote, next time it is called upon to vote. The player must
name one of the Ant's possible voting options, as delineated in rule 221. If
the Ant votes as predicted by the player, and no other player made the same
prediction, the said Ant becomes the property of the said player. While an
Ant is a player's property, it will vote as determined by the player. This
rule takes precedence before rule 221.

[Enacted by Proposal 304]
[Clarified by Judgement 3]
[Clarified by Judgement 13]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 308 - mutable
Vegetables


There are Vegetables. Vegetables do not vote, nor do they win or lose any
points or anything else. If a rule refers to something as being a Vegetable,
then this rule takes precedence before the referring rule. This rule also
takes precedence before any rule that has a Q in its title.

[Enacted by Proposal 308]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 311 [amended - see Rule 418]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 313 - mutable
Vegetable Taxation


The holder of the Office of Agriculture may tax the players for vegetables.
The taxation must be performed according to rules of equality decided by the
holder of the Office. The players must then pay to the holder of the Office
the number and type of vegetables due. If a player has too few vegetables to
be able to pay, he/she loses 3 points for each vegetable he/she is short of
payment.
Any player may present the holder of the Office with a
vote-of-no-confidence, referring to a specific taxation (not necessarily a
vote-of-no-confidence in the holder of the Office him/herself). If this vote
passes, then the taxation in question, and subsequent taxations up to the
time the vote is decided, are deemed void, and must be paid back.

If there is no holder of any Office of Agriculture, then the Speaker assumes
this rôle for the purpose of this rule.


[Enacted by Proposal 313]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 314 [repealed - see Proposal 380]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 316 [amended - see Rule 473]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 319 [amended - see Rule 402]

@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 325 - mutable
Offices


An Office is any position established by the Rules as such.
At any time, a given Office is held by exactly one Player. If an Office
would otherwise not be held by any Player, it shall be held by the Speaker.
An Officer is any Player who holds an Office.
A given Office has whatever duties, responsibilities, and privileges that
the Rules assign to it.

An Officer can be presented with a vote of no confidence at any time, and
can be removed from office by a 2/3 majority attained in a no confidence
vote. Such a vote can be initiated by any Citizen. A Citizen who initiates
such a vote of no confidence loses one point for each Vegetable in his/her
possession, and three points for each Vegetable in the possession of the
relevant Officer. Those points are returned to the initiating Citizen if the
Officer is removed.

[Enacted by Proposal 325]
[Changed by Administrative Review, April 6th, 1999]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 326 - mutable
Change of points


The number of points that a player has can only be changed when explicitly
allowed by a rule.

[Enacted by Proposal 326]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 327 - mutable
Feed and care of animals


Ants, even Electrical, are animals, and as such must be fed.
Each time a player-owned Ant votes for or against a proposal, it needs food.
Therefore it will eat one of it's owner's Vegetables, thus causing the
Vegetable to be no more. If the owner has no Vegetables, the Ant will return
to its original randomness, and cease to belong to its owner.
The Ants will eat in numerical succession.

[Enacted by Proposal 327]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 328 - mutable
Security


No possesion, points, ants or vegetables can be harmed, changed or removed
from any players possesion unless otherwise stated in the rules.

[Enacted by Proposal 328]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 329 - mutable
Theft


Any player can steal any of another players possesions except points. Succes
is determined with a 50% probability by the speaker. A player who fails a
theft is penalised 3 points.

[Enacted by Proposal 329]
[Clarified by Judgement 10]
@---@---@---@---@---@---@

Rule 330 - mutable
Protoproposals


All players can make Protoproposals.
The proper way to make a Protoproposal is to send it by electronic mail to
the current Speaker.
The Speaker will then distribute the Protoproposal to all Players.
The Speaker shall give each Protoproposal an ordinal number for reference.
The numbers shall begin with 10001, and each Protoproposal shall receive the
next successive ordinal.
A week after the distribution of the Protoposal, it becomes a Proposal in
the form it has at that time, and shall receive a Proposal Number as if it
had been proposed at this same time.
The original maker of a Protoproposal may within this week make minor
changes in the wording of the Protoproposal.
The original maker of a Protoproposal may, also within this week, withdraw
the Protoproposal by informing the Speaker of his/her doing so. A player
withdrawing a Protoproposal loses two points.

If at least one of the rules in conflict explicitly says of itself that it
defers to another rule (or type of rule), then such provisions shall
supersede the numerical method for determining precedence.
If at least one of the rules in conflict explicitly says of itself that it

action appears equally legal and illegal, then a player may call for
judgement on a statement to that effect. If the statement is judged true,
and the judgement is not overruled, then the player who called for judgement
is declared the winner of the game. This rule takes precedence over every
other rule for determining the winner of the game.
