About Ruleset Theft

I’m sure I’m not the first to notice, but the link we’re to steal rules from seems a bit broken. As, in fact, does the whole /~nomicwiki section of Now, unless that’s just a bug, or the wiki is up elsewhere, we need to pick a new list.

We could use the Wayback Machine; this seems to be the most recent cache of the page that isn’t broken. There is also a page of dead nomics, here.

I haven’t bothered to check how many of the links in either actually work, though.

I know protosals are considered bad form, but I would rather point this out faster than try to decide which of these methods I’d prefer and make a Proposal based on that, especially in case someone has a third method. By all means, if someone wants to propose a fix, either with one of those links or something else, don’t imagine I’ve put a moratorium on it.

I think I prefer the page of live nomics.

why do we need to pick a new list?

its a dumb rule and should stay as useless as possible

:/ If it exists, it should be in workable shape; If you want it to have no effect, propose to repeal it.

Fair enough, I guess.
