against  because a Player could technically move to MC and UNLOCK it all in one GNDT update.

No, UNLOCKING requires that the player “must make a post to the blog”.

But even if it was a GNDT action, it’d only be an issue if it was legal to take both actions at the same instant, which it isn’t - you can’t make the move until after you’ve unlocked the station, and the “immediately” of this clause is at least equally as fast as the player. (The fact that both actions could be neatly posted at the same time on the GNDT doesn’t mean that they happened simultaneously.)

Ah, that is true.  But regardless of that, the wording is odd.  Personally, it seems as if a scam is being proposed.  Why even allow MC to be “affected” by UNLOCKing at all?

Because then you have to write in an exception for Mornington Crescent for every unlocking mechanism we end up with.
