Change the third and fourth paragraphs of rule 1.9 to

Every ‘’‘Henchman’‘’ may respond to an active DoV saying whether they believe the poster has achieved victory in the current Dynasty (the FOR icon), the post has not (the AGAINST icon), or the poster is abusing their ability to post a DoV and should be punished (two adjacent AGAINST icons) .

The Declaration of Victory may be resolved after 24 hours, or after 12 hours if the Overlord has voted on it. Upon resolution, if a Quorum of Henchmen have voted on the DoV and more than half of those votes were in favour, then the DoV passes. If more than half of those votes favor punishment, then the DoV fails, the poster’s GNDT values are set to those defined for new players, and the poster is unable to make any more DoVs for seven days or until the end of the current dynasty, whichever comes first. Otherwise the DoV fails with no further effects. If no other DoV are still pending after a DoV’s failure, the Hiatus ends.

If more than half the valid “for” votes contain “aaronwinborn is a liar; that phrase was exactly as long as Ornithopter would have me believe” or “dunk ‘im” or both, subtract 1 from Rodlen’s GL, and ban em from making further DoVs until 25 Apr 2008 16:36:36 UTC. (Changes to eir stats after the DoV shouldn’t be reverted.)

against No need for this to be a core rule, when it comes up so rarely. The occasional one-off piranha tank gamestate-affecting proposal would do it.

Also “the poster’s GNDT values are set to those defined for new players” isn’t going to work for every dynasty - sometimes the default values (“hit points”, “money”) will be preferable to the ones the victor has.
