Proposal: An alternative unlocking proposal

Can’t enact with 11 votes against, without a change of vote. Failed by Kevan.

If the rule “Trails” contains the sentences

If a player has a trail that includes the word UNLOCK, they may cause one locked station to no longer be locked. To do this they must make a post to the blog stating that the station has become unlocked; the station is considered to be unlocked from the moment that the post is visible on the blog, but an admin should change the ruleset or gamestate to reflect this change as soon as is practically possible.

append the following sentence to them:

Mornington Crescent cannot be unlocked this way, unless it is the only locked station.

Putting a limit on this; people have to unlock other stations before they can unlock MC. Probably neater than the solution that makes us change the rules at some unspecified time later just so winning is possible…

against A fine solution, and certainly neater than the temporary measures of Changing the Lock. But by saying “the rule “Trails” contains the sentences” you are, of course, saying that this can only enact if Changing the Lock fails, and that we should pick one or the other, which could mean the weak UNLOCK being left in place for a few extra hours. (If anyone has yet to notice, Ais523 is perhaps two days away from using the UNLOCK Trail to win the game.)

And I would, of course, and with all gentlemanly respect, be disappointed in you if you didn’t self-kill this proposal prior to its enactment.

The problem is, I now assume that every proposal ais makes is a scam, and vote accordingly.

for If Changing the Lock is Enacted, this will have no effect, if it does not pass, not a problem. However, I would prefer a s/k and re-propose, as this is a more elegant solution, imo.
