OK, this should make dates mostly unambiguous, and will work with the current settings of ~~~~. If someone has a better wording of either of these, let me know and I’ll repropose this (again). I don’t want to have to type 0066 for the year 66, though.
Add a non-dynastic rule ‘Dates’:
1. Whenever a particular month is mentioned in a Proposal or a representation of the Gamestate, it must be specified by the complete English name of that month, or an unambiguous truncation thereof.
2. Whenever a particular year is mentioned in a Proposal or a representation of the Gamestate, it must be specified as the number of years since the beginning of the common era, with an optional suffix of “BCE” (Before Common Era) or “CE” (in Common Era) to denote the direction. If no suffix is given, “CE” is assumed. Thus, “07” Refers to the year 7, not the year 2007.
Reformat all nonconforming dates in pending proposals to comply with the new rule.
