Rule 429


Amends 396


Additional Disqualification Criteria


The player who submits a CFJ may submit with the statement to be judged a single statement to the effect that one other player is to be Disqualified with respect to that CFJ. If such a statement is submitted, then the indicated player shall immediately be Disqualified with respect to that CFJ. The Custodian of the Bar shall distribute any such statement along with the statement to be judged.

Within 72 hours of the announcement of the identity of a Judge any player other than the player who submitted the CFJ may send a message to the Public Forum asking that the Judge be Disqualified with respect to that CFJ. No player may send more than one such message per CFJ. If at least 30% of the current players send such a message, or if the Judge emself sends such a message, the Judge shall become Disqualified w.r.t. that CFJ, and a new Judge shall be selected. If the Judge emself sent such a message, es Acuity shall be reduced by 2 immediately prior to the selection of the new Judge.

If a Judge becomes Disqualified after being selected, and is not subsequently re-selected for that same CFJ, e shall not be required to return a judgement for that CFJ, or, if e does or has already done so, that judgement shall be destroyed. In this case the player in question shall incur no rewards or penalties for returning or failing to return a judgement. This rule takes precedence over any rule that would require such a player to return a judgement or reward or penalize em for returning or failing to return one.


Motivation: Allows a Judge to decline appointment, with an accompanying loss of Acuity.
