Enact a new rule, “Institute Proposals”:-

If a proposal has the “[Institute]” tag and its effects are confined to one or more of the Agenda Points below, it is an Institute Proposal.

Agenda Points are:-
* Making an Outsider into a Researcher, or vice versa
* Moving an Artefact from the Institute or from a Researcher to the Containment Facility
* Moving an Artefact from the Containment Facility to the Institute or to a Researcher. (This is a High-Risk Agenda Point.)
* Setting the Protocol of an Artefact to “None”
* Setting the Protocol of an Artefact to be the same as the Protocol of another Artefact

Votes from Outsiders and Collectors are ignored, on Institute Proposals. An Institute Proposal with no High-Risk Agenda Points is considered Popular if more than half of the Researchers are voting FOR it. An Institute Proposal with one or more High-Risk Agenda Points is considered Popular if three or more Researchers are voting FOR it. An Institute Proposal is considered Unpopular if at least half of the Researchers are voting AGAINST it.

Replace “A Researcher may not pick up an Artefact in the Containment Facility” and everything after it in the Containment rule with:-

A Researcher may not pick up an Artefact in the Containment Facility, unless they are carrying the Security Pass.

Remove “An Outsider may become a Researcher if fewer than a Quorum of Individuals are Researchers.” from the ruleset.

Probably time to change the “anyone can become a Researcher” musical chairs rule now that we’re into the second act, and following on from Josh’s Red Notice, giving a general and bureaucratical system for the Institute to change its own Protocols (but not to anything wholly original). The “authorisation to pick up” mechanic can also be moved here and kept at requiring-two-other-approvals.
