Call for Judgment: Occult Knowledge!?

2-5.  At least half the votes were against after four full days have passed.  CfJ fails.—Excalabur

Adminned at 12 May 2006 21:15:45 UTC

A rule entitled “Occult Knowledge” seems to have mysteriously appeared in the ruleset.  It did not arrive by proposal, was not added during AG’s dictatorship.  No rule uther than the dictatorship would have allowed AG to add this to the ruleset.

If at least half of all comments containing counted for votes also contain the text “Keep it”, the rules “Occult Knowledge” and “Location Effects” swap positions and numbers.

Otherwise, delete the rule “Occult Knowledge” from the ruleset and renumber the remainig rules accordingly.

It was legally added to the ruleset.

The wiki history shows that I am the one who added the rule—and at just about the same time as I posted notice of using an Encrypted Rule, too! against

Just because the Encrypted Rule mentions a rule that doesn’t exist does NOT mean that said rule can be added to the Ruleset.

True, but what if the Encrypted Rule specifically permits the addition of rules under certain circumstances?

Bucky:

That Encrypted rule did not yet exist!  The other one was not applicable.

Which one are you refering to? When I read the Wiki logs (to check your argument for chronology) I see:

02:32, 12 Apr 2006 Angry grasshopper (The Codex)

and then

18:29, 12 Apr 2006 Hix (Rules)

the latter being the time when Hix added that rule to the ruleset.

And I’m saying the existing one was not applicable.

Having no knowledge of the secret things of this world, I place my trust in the abbot.

Can’t vote IMP on a DoV.

(Unless the rules got changed when I wasn’t looking)

You mean a CfJ. :)

Well, since the abbot has already spoken, I’ll match it myself.  against
