Proposal: End of the Line

Reaches quorum, 11-1. Josh

Adminned at 06 Apr 2011 11:56:54 UTC

To the end of the first bullet point in Rule 3.2.2 (Rules and Proposal), add:-

  • Unless otherwise specified, a new Dynastic rule shall be placed at the end of the Dynastic Rules.

Lilomar invalidated a proposal by enacting the rule from the previous proposal at the top of the dynastic rules instead of the end, breaking the number referencing of all later proposals in the process. I’d argue that this was altering the gamestate in a manner not specified by the ruleset - the proposal didn’t call for the rules to be renumbered - but we may as well explicitly rule out any future weirdness in this area.

for [Josh] Yes but I agree it was illegal per Kevan.

I don’t think it was. Enacting the rule as 2.1 didn’t directly alter the gamestate - it just changed how the ruleset was interpreted, which isn’t currently covered.

The section numbers aren’t part of the ruleset, and there have been dynasties with rules routinely enacted for ruleset logic rather than numbering preservation in the past (the First of lilomar). Besides, the rule numbers are going to go out of sequence if you repeal a rule, anyway.

There used to be a rule saying that rules had to be referenced by name, not number. I think this is why.

Yes it may be, since we never define rule numbers. That’s the why I always name the rules to change.

Also: what Josh and ais said, but feel free to CFJ if you think it was illegal (the sooner the better, retconning the ruleset is a pain)
