This is a CfJ of the “Villager feels that an aspect of the game needs urgent attention” type.
In the Dynastic Rules, there are currently 2 references to other rules by number, one of which is now incorrect. It could be a nightmare trying to backtrack and see which game actions technically were not allowed, or which proposals should have had no effect because of “If a Proposal refers to a Rule by number and that Rule has been renumbered since the Proposal posting, that Proposal does nothing if enacted.” from Rule “Ruleset and Gamestate”. Also, the incident that caused the faulty reference is of dubious legality. It is probably technically legal, but we obviously shouldn’t encourage its use again.
If this Call for Judgment passes, the Gamestate and Ruleset shall be amended as specified hereafter:
In the rule “The Night Watchman”, replace “Rule 2.2” with “the Rule called ‘Werewolves’”.
In the rule “Acuity Points”, replace “Rule 2.3” with “the Rule called ‘Werewolves’”.
For the purposes of determining whether game actions that have already been taken were/are legal, it shall be assumed that the above amended references to a rule by number have always referred to the rule called “Werewolves”.
For the purposes of determining what the correct effects of Enacted Proposals that referred to rules by number should have been, it shall be assumed that it was perfectly legal for Chivalrybean to have, while adminning “Proposal: Silver Bullets for All”, added the rule “Silver Bullets” between two already existing rules, thus altering most of the already-existing rule numbers.
No proposals which have already been Enacted this Dynasty shall be retroactively considered to have no effect due to the provisions in the Rule “Ruleset and Gamestate”.
For the purposes of determining how badly the offending admin should be mocked when adding rules somewhere other than at the end of the appropriate section , rule, subrule, etc. (unless otherwise instructed), the following shall be the guideline: If there are no rules or pending proposals that depend on the current numbering, and if the non-standard rule placement has some particular organizational advantage, then the mocking should not occur. Otherwise mocking should occur, with the most severe mocking reserved for game-breaking results.
