Call for Judgment: If you’re in the water, hang onto your items

Timed out 0 votes to 4. Failed by Kevan.

Wooble attempted today to Throw an Item Off board at 25/09 16:28 (UTC), when he was ejected on 24/09 21:25 (UTC).

The rules on throwing items off board state:

As a daily action, any Survivor who is not Dead may Throw an Item they own Off Board. They shall remove this Item from their Possession.

The rules for ejection state:

The first time any comment is posted by a Survivor other than the original poster which contains a FOR Vote then the Victim is temporarily ejected from the lifeboat. When this happens they lose 1 Sanity, cannot perform any Daily or Weekly actions or Eat or Sleep for the rest of that Day or for the duration of the following Day

Thus, Wooble illegally performed an action, in Throwing his Item off board.

I therefore propose his actions be reverted (he regains the Item) and he lose 1 Sanity as a penalty.

Feel free to make another CfJ if you feel a penalty is too harsh.

against CfJs should only be raised “if two or more Survivors actively disagree as to the interpretation of the Ruleset” - Wooble may have merely overlooked this rule, rather than “actively disagreeing”. A simple revert of his action would have been enough, and he could have raised a CfJ if he did actually have an argument in favour of his action.

And yes, the Sanity penalty seems a bit harsh and arbitrary.

I’ve gone ahead and reverted his action in the GNDT.

against Per Kevan, who saved me some typing. :-)

(The conspiracy theorist in me wonders if there’s some reason why you needed Wooble to lose a Sanity!)

Technically you can’t undo an illegal action (because it never happened in the first place).

Fair enough, so I’m meant to revert the action in the GNDT, and then if he disagrees, he can raise a CfJ?
