Proposal: Delicious New Flavour Text
Quorum 12-1. Darknight

Remove any italics which were not added to the ruleset document in accordance with the rules. Admin may not add italics to the ruleset while this proposal is being enacted. (This addresses some of the paranoia over an earlier proposal to remove the italics rule.)
Repeal Glossary Rule 3.1 (Typographic Conventions). If it’s still there after being repealed, repeal it again.
Add a new Rule 3.1, called “Flavour Text”:-
When posting a blog entry, a Scripter may use the “Commentary or flavour text” field of the blog publishing form to add their own comments or description of their post. For the purposes of all other rules, such text is not considered to be part of the post.
... And this is what the flavour text edit field looks like when used. (Jeid found an early version of it by chance when writing his join message.)
This proposal uses a version of ais523’s suggestion from the earlier Flavourlessness proposal. The big assumption I’m making is that we only ever need invisible flavour text in Proposals, and can work around it in Rules (by saying “For example:” or just obviously-fluff “each player has a number of coins, which are made of solid lead and have a picture of a rabbit skull on both sides”). What do people think?
