Call for Judgment: I couldn’t possibly be any hotter

I think this is very clearly the intent of the rule, but on a strict reading I should gain a second Heat Signature on moving to the Zoning Zone. Let’s repudiate and repair that reading.

If any Citizen has more than one Heat Signature, they are changed to have one Heat Signature.

In the zone rule “Breach”, after the text “Citizens who occupy this Zone automatically gain a Heat Signature” add “if they do not already have one”.

Timed out 4 votes to 4. Failed by Kevan.

for Not sure if this is necessary but voting so it doesn’t block the queue

I’m not sure either. There’s no queue to block, though, this is a CfJ.

The exact number of Heat Signatures someone has is an orphan variable (the rule only allows us to track whether that number is nonzero, not what it is), but there’s no rule that asks how many someone has, nor any rule that removes them. The pending Danger and Harm removes all of a Citizen’s Heat Signatures, so doesn’t create a problem either.

Is this an urgent fix, or just a fixer without a proposal slot free?

@Kevan My bad, for some reason I thought CfJs were enacted in order.

It’s not really a reason for a CfJ, but it doesn’t do much. imperial

@Kevan had I a proposal slot free I’d still have CfJ’d this for what it’s worth.

[redtara] Why? CfJs are for when “two or more Citizens actively disagree as to the interpretation of the Ruleset, or if a Citizen feels that an aspect of the game needs urgent attention”.

against It doesn’t seem at all urgent to me.
