Rule 1265 ( Record ) Rule Violations
# Amend 1054 Rule Violations
If a player believes that another player or set of players has violated the rules, then a player may make a CFJ on a statement to that effect. The CFJ may specify a penalty between 5 and 15 points inclusive.
If four weeks have elapsed since the alleged violation, then, although this rule does not prevent the making of a CFJ, this rule has no application to such cases.
In the special case that the legality of some circumstance of a proposal's proposition, vote, or format is challenged, and that proposal is still up for vote at the time the CFJ is made, then the proposal shall be suspended.
When a judgment that a player violated the rules is delivered, there is the usual waiting period to allow players to make a PCJ before the outcome of the judgment becomes part of game custom. If no PCJ is made, then after the waiting period, the following consequences take place as soon as possible and practical:
(a) The penalty is assessed to the player(s) who were accused in the relevant CFJ. (b) If the rule violation was an action or actions, that action and any immediate, direct consequences shall be undone, if such undoing is practical and possible.
When a PCJ is proposed before the end of the waiting period, the above consequences do not take place unless and until the PCJ fails. There is no waiting period after the failure of a PCJ.
In the case of a judgment other than TRUE, any proposals suspended as a result of that CFJ shall be immediately unsuspended.
This rule takes precedence over any mutable rules which would prevent the illegal action from being undone.
# Enact Suspension of a Proposal A rule may dictate that a proposal be 'suspended.' A suspended proposal remains on the voting noticeboard indefinitely. Players may still vote or change their vote on the proposal, and the proposer may still retract the proposal, but the proposal cannot be tallied, nor adopted, nor the vote disclosed, unless and until it is unsuspended.
If the proposal is unsuspended before the end of its prescribed voting period, it stays on the notice board and is tallied at the usual time as though it had never been suspended. If a proposal is unsuspended after its prescribed voting period has ended, then it is tallied as soon as possible after being unsuspended.
