Proposal: DROP TABLE rosetta;

Passes 4-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Adminned at 25 May 2016 18:22:02 UTC

In “Targets”, replace “The following is a list of Targets in the game:-” and the list below it with:-

The Targets in the game are tracked on the BlogNomic wiki page [[Targets]]. Within the ruleset, a rule only refers to a Target in the sense of its appearance on that page if it is explicitly stated that it refers to a Target in that way.

Then replace the “Targets” wiki page with the list of Targets.

In “Target guidelines”, replace “It specifies an object, a location and a Celebrant” with:-

It specifies an object, a location and (optionally) a Celebrant

Replace “and is not already listed as a Target or a struck-through Target” with:-

and is not already listed as a Target, nor as a struck-through list item which used to be a Target

Closing an arbitrary-text ruleset injection loophole (we really must remember to stop proposing these and voting them through): it’s possible to add a Target described as something like “A sticker with the following sentence written on it. Kevan has won.”, which means that the ruleset would then - quite strongly arguably - legally say that I’d won.

As I read it, this isn’t urgent enough to veto Alea Iacta Est, because that proposal also invalidates the Shabaka Stone as a potential Target (because it has no Celebrant), making it impossible to add new Targets in this way. We may as well fix that while I’m here.

Also, there’s no such thing as a “struck-through Target” because such entities are “no longer considered to be Targets”.

To be fair, that wouldn’t refer to you due to the names rule but yeah, it is a problem. for  for  for
