Proposal: More Nomic, Less Calvinball

Reaches Quorum 7-1 and Passes. -RaichuKFM

In the Rule “The Sequester”, replace the phrase “The Sequester page of the wiki may be edited once per day by each MN.” with “If the gamestate is not Polarized, The Sequester page of the wiki may be edited once per day by each MN.”

Being able to put rules into the Ruleset at will is kind of a terrible idea. Like defining a new type of Post that auto-succeeds, and making one that hands you an instant-win, or somesuch.

@scshunt Having it in the base rules too is more reliable.

Yeah, I stuck it into the Sequester last week, but I thought to myself that that might not be enough.

Check the Sequester page - I just demonstrated why it should be in the dynastic rules.

So is the argument about why its okay to have the sequester in the first place that we have a way of delaying it from going off and in all likelihood destroying blognomic?  for

This is what I thought the Sequester would be: A sea of double negatives and clauses weaseled into others’ Rules. I hadn’t expected the spelling errors, though.
