Helicopter Rescue

Per “Admins may correct obvious spelling and typographical mistakes in the Ruleset at any time”, please change the last comma in the Apache Helicopter to a semicolon per the author’s intent. (or say yes and i’ll fix it)

I don’t think that constitutes an “obvious spelling and typographical mistake”, since it can be read correctly as is.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but can’t you use the same reasoning to say: “I am going to change this entire rule that I proposed to say ‘I win.’, since that was my original intention.”

Whether or not we do this determines whether helicopters are in stock, per Proposal: Weapon Effects, which makes this more meaningful than just a punctuation mark. Besides, it’s not an obvious typo, as Yoda points out.

And since “Storage Zone” isn’t part of the ruleset, we can’t change it anyhow, so the whole thing is moot.

Good point.
