Since when are we making proposals in robot language?

If this will be a scam, I love it.

against mismatched square brackets, for one thing

William:

04-26-2011 00:48:04 UTC

for the record, is this a valid syntax for making proposals?

lilomar:

04-26-2011 01:01:31 UTC

William: I believe that is what we are trying to find out.

William:

So lets assume this proposal passes - as it is on track to do. What does the enacting admin do? I would assume that without some understanding of how this proposal should be interpreted, it can’t add anything to the ruleset.

english? Wow would have never guessed! :P
It’s very clear to me… Create a new dynastic rule, with text “if a Corporation…”
I smell CfJ after this one passes…

lilomar:

04-26-2011 17:09:26 UTC

honestly? it’s the malformed syntax that hurts the most. I would like it better if it was more:

define[dynasticRule[“Bankruptcy”, “If a Corporation’s worth is less than -100, its assets are frozen and its stocks cannot change ownership except by proposal, CfJ or as explicitly allowed by this rule’s subrules.”]]

@lilomar - why not go all the way - pull out the if/then from the body text :P

lilomar:

04-26-2011 17:41:30 UTC

The If-Then is embedded in a string literal, it’s not meant to be interpreted mechanically. :-)

against no robot language for me.
