Proposal: [Core] The Key to Keywords 2

reached quorum 4-0 failed by card

Adminned at 01 Feb 2018 18:04:29 UTC

Undo the effects of “[Core] The Key to Keywords” if it has passed.

Add to the list of words in the Rule “Keywords” an entry for the word “Keyword” itself, as per the following:

A word which is given an explicit definition in the ruleset (such as the words listed in the rule “Keywords”), or a word which, via thematic context found in the Ruleset and for the purposes of gameplay, have a different meaning than the one found in conventional English. (For example, “the player casts a Fireball” doesn’t mean that they do so in real life as per the usual English use of the word, but rather, perform a formal action which just has the fantasy aesthetics of that).

Two proposals in 24 hours to define Keywords in a very particular way, and at the expense of regular proposal play, seems a bit overkeen. This feels too much like another “hax lol” core scam, and I don’t feel like working out what you might be up to.

“I don’t feel like working out what you might be up to.”

And that’s totally alright. But, at least give the others the chance to, then. Please don’t lock down proposals, it’s been just 30 minutes.

[Cuddlebeam] The informal six-hour moratorium thing seems inappropriate for core changes, both for the risk of timing out with only a few votes in favour (as has started to happen for regular proposals) and for confusion over what people are actually in favour of.

against You haven’t given any real explanation of why you feel this is change is necessary which leads me to believe, like Kevin, that this is in preparation for some wording-based scam.

(but even if you had given one I would probably have been suspicious anyways given your recents scams ;-)...
