Fillibusters, anyone?

As it currently stands, a Motion’s discussion ends 24 hours after the last comment is posted. However, there’s nothing stopping someone from posting a comment each day and prolonging a Motion indefinitely. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be a player. Any random spammer, troll, or idle player could stop the entire Dynasty.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

If someone wants to Move this, I’ll second it.

Maybe I presume too much, but I think Chronos would allow the spammer/troll/idler loophole to be closed via proposal.

Yes. rule 2.1 is almost core anyways.

Although those who are not iudices certainly should not be able to hold things up I think that filibusters by authorized iudices is in keeping with the dynasty.

Although maybe some sort of possibility of a subsidiary motion to close discussion with different rules on how it could be prolonged would be in order.
