Proposal: I’m slightly worried about Time Freeze abuse.

In the “Call for Judgment” rule, replace the word “Lifeforms” with “Workers”.

Add a paragraph to the “Call for Judgment” rule, just before the current last paragraph of that rule, reading:

If the CEO or any 3 other Workers make comments to a Time Freeze that include the VETO icon, then that Time Freeze is no longer considered a Time Freeze (but it is still a Call for Judgement), and provided there no other DoVs or Time Freezes pending, the Hiatus ends.

for Seems fair.

for I like this better than the blanket time freeze. However, it is still abusable by chain posting Time Freezes.

Well, unless such chaining was part of some strategy which requires Hiatus, it would probably be considered trolling for a Worker to continue to throw the game into Hiatus when other Workers feel that the issue at hand does not warrant such extremes.  I figure we can deal with such abuses on a case-by-case basis as they occur.

So, while I guess this is ok, I think its rather silly because if people want to end the Haitus they just neeed to vote against the CfJ. And if someone is trolling via the Time Freezes, their CfJ is probably pretty silly as well.

But I guess for cause why not
