Rule 1017 (Storm: Mutable). Rules about a Player's Identity.
(a) Rules stating that any event is conditional on the identity of a player cannot be applied. A player's identity is represented by their player name, real name, email address, or similar enduring characteristic.
(b) A rule that awards or subtracts points based on how players voted cannot be applied to any votes cast before its enactment, nor can it be applied if it refers to particular proposals or rules except to specify precedence.
This rule takes precedence over all rules with identification numbers higher than 1017.
