Proposal: Just in case, location fix

Fails 5-7. Timed out.—alethiophile

In the rule 2.6 Universe, change the current text which reads:

Each Adventurer has a “Location” , which is tracked in the GNDT. Locations are limited to real-life (i.e., not fictional or mythical), existent (as of the Reference Time) locations on Earth that have their own article in the Reference Source, and have a size or area, as specified in the Reference Source, of no more than one thousand square miles. For example, Independence Hall (United States), Elvis’ Pink Cadillac, and New York City are all legitimate Locations; while Narnia, Heaven, Asia and the Library of Alexandria do not exist as legitimate Locations.

to read instead:

Each Adventurer has a “Location” , which is tracked in the GNDT. Locations are limited to real-life (i.e., not fictional or mythical), existent (as of the Reference Time) locations on Earth that have their own article in the Reference Source, and have a size or area, as specified in the Reference Source, of no more than one thousand square miles, providing that no dimension of the location exceed 1,000 miles. For example, Independence Hall (United States), Elvis’ Pink Cadillac, and New York City are all legitimate Locations; while Narnia, Heaven, the Prime Meridian, Asia and the Library of Alexandria do not exist as legitimate Locations.

for In the absence of any explanations why people are voting against. “No dimension” is an odd way to word it, but it seems unambiguous enough.

One of my problems with this is the ambiguity involved with the “middle” of the earth. Does the south pole go down to the core for example? Surface area is also bad because it is a fractal for most valid locations. I’m opposed to the idea anyway though.

Kevan’s wording is better.

To those asking for explanations: I vote against because I like being able to get away from the South Pole. As-is, you can’t without a wish.

A simple proposal to move everyone away from the South Pole would also work, and would presumably make quorum quite easily.
