Call for Judgment: Non-dis-script

Reached quorum and passed, 6-0. Josh

Adminned at 08 Aug 2022 09:00:20 UTC

In the rule BotScript, change the text “All Reactions are Resolvable, except if that Reaction:” to read:

All otherwise-legal Reactions are Resolvable, except if that Reaction:

In the same rule change “If a line in a script is no longer a legal entry but may be legally represented by other wording without changing the meaning it had at the time of being provided to the announcer, the announcer should strive to treat it as if it had that legal wording if possible” to read

If a line in a script is not a legal entry but may be clearly assessed (without context) as having the same meaning as a single, specific instance of legally compliant wording, without changing the meaning that that line had at the time of being provided to the announcer, the announcer should strive to treat it as if it had that legal wording if possible.

Add the following to the end of the first paragraph of the same rule:

All legal Triggers and Reactions can be found in lists in this rule.

Set the Readiness of any Operator whose Readiness is Set and whose EVC on this CfJ contains the word “rethink” to Staging.

Clearing up some ambiguities in what counts as a legal script.

oh, there’s a scam here btw: if you say “rethink” in your EVC, you now have the privilege to set yourself from set to staging at any time you want (since the clause states “*Any Operator may set* their Readiness”)

I don’t think you’d get blanket permission to set it any time you want. In rules and votable matters, it says:
“If the Admin enacting a Votable Matter reaches a step which cannot be applied immediately (e.g. “two days after this Votable Matter enacts, Operator A gains 1 point”), that step is ignored for the purposes of enactment. Once a Votable Matter has been enacted, it can have no further direct effect on the gamestate.”

I think it might only let the enacting admin set their own readiness, and nobody else has the option of doing so.
