If both Person A and Person B consent to this exchange in a public fora (as defined by R463), the player will represent Person B, and Person A will be without representation in Berserker Nomic. The player's identification will be changed to Person B's real human fore- and surnames or eir email address if eir real name does not uniquely identify em within the game; all of the player's other attributes will be unaffected.

Proposal 559 : 23 August 1999, 17:05 CDT : Jeff Schroeder : Inactive
Change Rule 307 to read:

A quorum for Proposal voting purposes is a simple majority of eligible vote-casting entities.

If a quorum has not cast votes by the end of a Proposal voting period, the Proposals which were up for voting neither pass nor fail, but are held over for the next turn and remain active.

Proposals which require unanimous consent will fail if any eligible vote-casting entity casts a vote equivalent to a "no" toward the Proposal. On that condition, the Proposal will disregard the quorum and will not remain active or be held over for the next turn.

Vote-casting entities eligible but failing to cast votes during the voting period shall have their votes recorded as automatic abstentions.
