Remove the text

There exists a wiki document called the “Plot Summary” whose contents have no effect on gamestate. This document may edited by any Character at any time, and should be edited to reflect updates in the Plot. Entries in the Plot Summary document should be kept as concise as possible.

from rule 2.1 “The Plot”.

Add a new sub-rule to rule 2.1 “The Plot” titled “Plot Summary” with the following text:

There exists a wiki document called the “Plot Summary” whose contents have no direct effect on gamestate.  However, the Plot Summary page may only be altered in manners specified by the ruleset.  Any entries in the Plot Summary document should be kept as concise as possible.

The Plot Summary page shall be divided into two main sections, “Present Time” and “Foresight”.  The “Present Time” section shall include all events up to the current date.  Under the “Present Time” section, there shall be a sub-section for every date starting at 15/11/2008 and ending with the current date.  At the beginning of each day, any Character may add the section for the current day under the “Present Time” section; however, he shall not add any text when he does this.  The “Foresight” section shall include the events leading up to the death of Jason Smith.  Only the Narrator may alter the “Foresight” section.

The Plot Summary page may be edited by the Narrator at any time.

Any Character other than the Narrator may, as a weekly action, Seed the Plot by adding a sub-sub-section with any title and text (the Plot Seed) to the “Present Time” section of the Plot Summary page under the sub-section that corresponds to the current date.  The Narrator may, within 72 hours, reward that Character’s Plot Seed by adding 1 to that Character’s PP.

Replace the text “The Narrator may, at any time, add 1 to any Character’s PP except his own unless he has already added 1 to that Character’s PP that day (in other words, one PP per Character per day).” in sub-rule 2.1.1 “Plot Points” with “The Narrator may, at any time, Develop a Character by adding 1 to that Character’s PP.  The Narrator may not Develop himself.  The Narrator may not Develop a Character if he already Developed that Character in the previous 24 hours (in other words, one PP per Character per day).”

The last part is just to distinguish Developing from other reward systems, such as rewarding a Plot Seed.

Are there any circumstances under which a plot seed can pertain to a time before or after the time that it is posted?

I think current wording lets ya set the time

Yes, the wording should even allow you to create the section before or after any existing sections.
