Add the sub-rule coherence to the rule 2.1 Plot.
Define an attribute of a character/object to be any aspect of said character/object having objective reality (as determined by the objective reality of an identical character/object in our reality) and that can be verified according to an established standard of evaluation (e.g. physical attributes, nationality, religion, occupation, etc.). The GNDT constitutes a valid standard of evaluation with respect to location and occupation, but not with respect to relationship towards the protagonist.
If a character, called the “author of statement X”, makes a plot seeding post containing statement X, which contradicts an attribute previously established in the plot, then any other active character may lodge an objection to statement X. To lodge a valid objection, the critic will title his comment with the word OBJECTION (with identical capitilisation), and list all the statements he objects to, including references from the plot summary describing the discrepancies. An objection to statement X requires a nomination and seconding to be passed, and these may be offered by any active character, with the exception of the author, the critic, and the narrator by using the word SUPPORT (with identical capitilisation) in the comments following the objection, accompanied by a statement of X. Even after an objection has been passed, the narrator may veto the objection by placing the VETO symbol in a comment following the objection, accompanied by a statement of X. Any objection that has passed in this manner shall result in statement X being altered by the author on the wiki page “plot summary”.
