Joint Custody

Enact a new rule entitled “Proposals”:

  Wherever this rule contradicts rule 1.4, this rule overrules it.
Any Honourable Member may submit a Proposal to change the Ruleset or Gamestate, by posting an entry in the “Proposal” category that describes those changes, unless there are 7 or more Proposals pending or the Honourable Member already has 2 Proposals pending, or has already made 3 Proposals that day. 
[edit]
1.4.1 Special Proposal Voting
When a Honourable Member casts an explicit vote AGAINST their own Proposal, this renders the Proposal Self-Killed, even if the author later changes their Vote. The Speaker may use VETO as a voting icon to cast a Vote on a proposal, unless the Speaker has already used VETO on a current pending proposal; when the Speaker casts a vote of VETO on a Proposal, this renders the Proposal Vetoed, even if the Speaker later changes their Vote.
If a Honourable Member other than the Speaker casts a vote of DEFERENTIAL on a Proposal, then the Vote of DEFERENTIAL is an indication of confidence in the Speaker. When the Speaker has a valid Vote other than VETO on a Proposal, then all votes of DEFERENTIAL are instead considered to be valid and the same as the Speaker’s Vote for the purposes of other rules unless otherwise specified.
[edit]
1.4.2 Resolution of Proposals
The oldest pending Proposal may be enacted by any Admin (by updating the Ruleset and/or Gamestate to include the specified effects of that Proposal, and then setting that Proposal’s status to Enacted) if either of the following is true:
It has a number of FOR Votes that exceed or equal Quorum, has been open for voting for at least 12 hours, and has not been Vetoed or Self-Killed.
The oldest pending Proposal may be failed by any Admin, if any of the following are true:
It has a number of AGAINST Votes that exceeds a two-thirds majority of active Honourable Members, and has not been Vetoed or Self-Killed
It has been Vetoed or Self-Killed.

against because the effects are quite unclear.

Also not technically a proposal. Notice there is no automatic “Proposal:” at the top.

Also would this mean that when posting a Blog entry in the “Proposal” category, you would be submitting both a “Proposal” as per rule 1.4 and a “Proposal” as per that dynastic rule? And so it would be enacted twice?
