Not a Proposal.  Edited after comments.

Replace all instances of

The oldest pending Proposal

in Rule 1.5 with

Any pending Proposal


Add this to the end of the Rule:

No Proposal may be either enacted or failed if it contains any reference to still-pending Proposals that would affect the function of the Proposal, or if any still-pending Proposals contain content that would affect the function of the Proposal.

The proposal by pie-is-square that I don’t want to name fully because it’s too long was vetoed by Clucky because pie apparently had more than two pending proposals. Only thing was, pie had voted against, and therefore self-killed, one of them. Clucky’s action was within the rules, as the s-ked proposal had not yet been admined, but it would have been had the oldest pending proposal rule not been in effect. It’s a better idea to allow an admin to admin any proposal that meets the criteria, so that s-ked and vetoed proposals can be admined and stop plugging up the queue.

<_<

Like we said last time, the reason for the rules is so that people think carefully about their proposals. If you make a bad proposal, and it gets vetoed/shot down—or if you fail to read your own proposal before typing it up and thus make some big mistakes, then its your own fault and you shouldn’t get to try again sooner just because you failed once. against
