Proposal: Come pulse sorry

Self Killed. Failed by Derrick.

Adminned at 12 Jul 2019 14:26:56 UTC

Add a new rule called “Compulsory”:

An action is Compulsory if:
- The rules compel a Wizard to perform it (eg. “a Wizard must...”).
- The Wizard can perform it.
- The Wizard has all of the minimum amount of information needed to perform the action, granted via explicit rule-defined mechanisms.

While a Wizard has an action that is Compulsory for them to do, they cannot perform any non-Compulsory dynastic actions.

Not sure about this. But we should at least restrict the “cannot perform” to dynastic actions, so that we don’t accidentally lock ourselves out of raising and voting on CfJs (or require admins to keep an eye on the legality of cast votes).

Reading this again, making all “shoulds” (or even something like the proposal resolution’s “highly encouraged to report the final tally of Votes”) into compulsory actions which risk locking players out of the game seems like a big overstep.

I still think not following rules is just breaking them, and falls just outside of the ruleset in scope. As the other players of a game, albeit an oddly overspecified, scam-friendly one, the natural reply is simply to be annoyed.

Could go under Fair Play, though.

Caviat: if the rule itself gets specific about a consequence for breaking it, that (probably) takes precedence. Like when duelists don’t submit plans, they lose the duel in 48 hours.

So if we pass a rule about following the rules, we’re kind of overriding that basic expectation.
