v1.1 because there were holes

Add the following rule to the ruleset, called “Gadgets”

Each Agent may have a certain number of gadgets. The number of gadgets an Agent may have is tracked in a GNDT column called “Gadgets”. This number is 3 by default. There also exists a page on the wiki called “List of Gadgets”, which contains a list of every Agent and the descriptions of the gadgets which the agent has. Provided e does not currently have any “Gadgets Approval” posts pending, and e has fewer gadgets than the maximum e may have according to the GNDT, an agent may make a post to the blog describing a new gadget that e wishes to acquire which includes: The name of the gadget, a description of what the gadget does, and the name of Agent requesting the gadget, and the time that the agent submitted the gadget. This is called a “Gadget Approval” post.

If, after 48 hours, none the following are true:

A) The Mastermind has vetoed the gadget approval post.
B) Three or more agents have responded with an “against” icon.
C) Fewer than two other agents have responded with a “for” icon.

Then the agent who posted the gadget approval post may add the gadget to eir list of gadgets on the wiki and make a comment to the gadget approval post saying “Gadget Approved”

If any one of those three requirements is true, then the gadget is not added to the player’s list of gadgets and a comment must be made to the gadget approval post saying “Gadget Denied”

Either way, the gadget approval post is no longer considered pending.

If an agent ever has more gadgets than allotted on the GNDT, any other agent, provided such a action would not leave eimself with too many gadgets, may claim one of the original agent’s gadgets by moving its location on the gadgets page.

Gadgets may not grant any player victory, nor can they edit the ruleset in any way.

Negative consitions are ackward and prone to abuse. I suggest you write it straight-forwardly in positive phrases.

for I like these gadget approval conditions (negative construction can be reworded at a later time, IMO).  Assuming people are voting based on fairness and game-balancing issues, I’d say they are almost ideal.  If everyone eventually becomes stingy and starts disallowing any Agent to receive a gadget, they might need some reworking.
