Proposal: It’s Excluding 9000

In the rule “Islands”, amend the section reading

Hunters shall be initially placed on an island based on the alphabetic position of first two letters of their name in the Current Active Players sidebar. Assignment shall be made on a modulo-by-5 scheme where A=0, B=1, etc. For example, Matt would be M (13%5=3) A (1%5=1) -> 3,1 -> D,B -> The Island of the Drifting Breakers; Qwerty63 would be Q (17%5=2) W (23%5=3) -> 2,3 -> C,D -> The Island of Cape Disaster.

The island on which a Hunter resides shall be tracked in the GNDT.

to read

Each Hunter is on one Island, which is said to be their location. This is tracked in the GNDT, in the column “Island”, as the Code of the Island a Hunter is on.

Hunters shall be initially placed on an Island by the following process: DICE5 is rolled, twice, in a comment to the GNDT. The first result is converted to the letter that occupies that position in the English alphabet; ie., 1 is A, 2 is B, 3 is C, 4 is D, and 5 is E. The second result is converted into a letter by the same process, and concatenated to the first; That Hunter’s location is the Island which has the resulting string as its Code.

There’s not really any need to convert a letter into a number, and then modulo it, and then convert that back to a letter, any more.

I think this is airtight; It at least doesn’t make unidling someone potentially illegal.

for Much better worded than the previous proposal.

Will this have any effect since all hunters have already been “initially placed”? Any subsequent placing would no longer be initial, though the rule would still be applicable to new hunters.

for At this point, I think it is just for new hunters.
