Call for Judgment: God Does Not Play BlogNomic, Probably

Enacted 8-0. Josh

Adminned at 08 Aug 2021 07:57:17 UTC

Uphold the enactment of this proposal https://blognomic.com/archive/idle_admins_should_not_be_omnipotent_actually_a_proposal

Revert the resolution of any other votable matters in the past 48 hours that have been enacted by idle admins when they did not meet the conditions for enactment by non-idle admins, or where the idle admin administered the votable matter with an outcome contrary to the outcome determined by the criteria set out for active admins in the core rules.

To subrule 1.2.1 add “Idle admins can resolve Votable Matters as if they were not idle.”

I think that upholding the enactment of the proposal works, even if the proposal itself was illegal and did nothing when enacted; we’re effectively saying “make the same changes to the ruleset as the proposal would have done if it worked”. This is important because it seems that if a proposal is posted during Hiatus, a CFJ is insufficiently powerful to make that proposal legal (and thus Bucky’s enactment of the proposal didn’t have the intended effect, because the proposal was illegal and illegal proposals do nothing when enacted).
