Proposal: Consistency is a good thing

Enacted 5-2, by yuri_dragon_17

Create a new rule called “Groundhog timer”:

If there are ever any discrepancies between the hours and days specified for a certain time period in a dynastic rule, then the hours shall be adjusted to match the days.
Example:
A rule states that a certain action may be taken “once every 49 hours (2 days)”. 2 days and 49 hours are not the same length of time, so the rule is adjusted to read “once every 48 hours (2 days)”.

Create a subrule of Break Down, entitled An Exemplary rule:

Break Down cannot affect parts of the ruleset clearly labelled as examples.

Because this monday morning, the Break Down will cause a lot of errors.

for Because Break Down seems to remain in effect even when in the Parallel Ruleset, because someone always has Time Immunity.

against  “clearly labelled as examples” is just as vague as “boring”.

No, because the word clear is an antonym of vague.

IMO, if it says “This is an example”, “Example:”, or something similar, it’s an example.

And I’d say that this one is a lot easier to CfJ hypothetical stupid abuses than the “boring” thing.

imperial It would be better to specify a mechanism by which the change occurs.
