Proposal: ‘tis the season for core rules patches

Reached quorum 14 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 27 Apr 2010 09:16:52 UTC

In rule 1.2 “Voters”, replace

Admins may de-Idle an Voter at his request (unless that Voter asked to become Idle within the previous 4 days)

with

Admins may de-Idle an Voter at his request (unless that Voter asked to become Idle within the previous 4 days, and within the current dynasty)

Based on what just happened to Qwaz. Also, I think that showing that you can make meaningful improvements to the core rules is an excellent way to show that you’re fit to be an Emperor. (One of Agora’s win conditions requires you to have written a proposal that amends its equivalent of the core rules, for instance.)

Also, I just realised that automatic keyword replacement screws up grammar (“an Voter”). That particular bug must have been there for ages (it would have been “an Colonist” last dynasty). I wonder if it can be considered a typo when enacting?

[ais] Yes, we’ve always taken those as “obvious spelling [...] mistakes” and fixed them under Rule 1.1, in the past.

for, although I’m a bit leery about attaching fitness to win to proposals to amend the core rules.
