Proposal: I’m sorry Diddy, I can not do that.

Add the following text to the the first paragraph of Doing the Dance:

If a monkey has moves added to their section that have a total complexity higher than the monkey’s dance moves, any monkey may remove the excess moves one at a time, starting with the latest, until the total complexity does not exceed the dance moves of the monky whose moves are being reduced.

In Doing the Dance, change the text

If the monkey has more moves in eir section of the dance than dance moves, only the first N moves are followed where N is that monkey’s number of dance moves.

with

If the monkey has a move that, if executed, would make the total complexity of executed moves higher than the monkey’s Dance Moves, no more moves may be executed for that monkey. 

How does this sound?

Well, “the total complexity of executed moves” seems to me like it should refer to all the moves that have been executed in the dance so far, not just the moves of the particular monkey.  So that should probably be changed.  Other than that, I think it works.

for i wouldn’t have interpreted it that way, but i see how it could be, so i’ll also vote for it if you reword that.

against I agree with Orcular Rufio here. Only the first monkey’s dance moves would be executed.

Before I s/k this, if it was read in the whole context of the paragraph, would it still seem to say ‘all monkies’? I’ll try to check later, busy at moment.
