Proposal: Atoms FTW

Vetoed. — Quirck

The rules shall decree what formulas are well-formed, what axioms are true, and what deduction methods are valid.
A proof consists of a post by which a well-formed formula is deduced using the methods decreed by the rules, from the axioms decreed by the rules or from formulas previously proven.
Every Atom by itself is a well-formed formula. Once the first proof is posted of a well-formed formula consisting solely of an Atom, then that Atom shall win.

This includes win by contradiction, if our deduction rules include ex contradictione quodlibet. Then the first one to prove a contradiction just goes on to prove his own Atom for the win.

This doesn’t propose a rule.

You need to re-propose this. I’m assuming you forgot, per Skju, that you, like all of us have, forgot to put this in the proposal category. Per 3.2, you can’t change the state of the post after it has been commented.

I sent him a PM and was hoping he’d fix it before it got a comment, but I’ll have to vote against it now against

veto To be quick. Kikar, it is in the proposal category.

Okay, I messed up. Thanks for those who tried to warn me privately. Sorry, I thought I did click on proposal category. How do I select proposal category?

Skju, I misunderstood the problem. I apologize for my misleading statement above.

You selected the Proposal category correctly. You just need to word it so it proposes a rule. If you had put “Add a new Rule to the Ruleset entitled Proofs containing the following:” in front you would have been fine.

And don’t worry, almost everyone makes a mistake like this on their first proposal.


11-06-2013 05:52:31 UTC

Thanks. I’ll try to make a mistake completely unlike this on my next proposal.

against Might as well throw in my vote even if it does nothing.
