Add the following to the end of the rule The Masquerade:

The period of time between two Masquerades is known as a Season.

In “Winnowing”, replace “If they haven’t done so since the most recent Masquerade” with “Once per Season”.

In the rule Ethics of the Nobility, replace “At any time, any Elector may send the Doge a Rumour” with “Once per Season, each Elector may send the Doge a Rumour”. In the same rule change “within 48 hours” to “within the same Season”.

If there is a rule called The Campaign, reword it as follows. Otherwise, add the following as a new rule called The Campaign:

Each Elector has a Campaign, defaulting to “None”, which is publicly tracked. Once per Season, an Elector can change their Campaign; the list of valid Campaigns is included in this rule. Once per Season, an Elector may Progress their Campaign, by carrying out the instructions (if there are any) detailed in the list below; once completed either the Elector (for public information) or the Doge (for secret information) should update the gamestate as necessary.

* None
* Vatican: Respond to the most recent Masquerade post with a comment saying “Advancing my Vatican Campaign”. If your Mistrust is positive, the Doge must reduce your Mistrust by 1 before the next Masquerade.
* Foreign Powers: Respond to the most recent Masquerade post with a comment saying “Advancing my Foreign Powers Campaign”. Increase your Mistrust by 1. The Doge must your Political Power by 1 before the next Masquerade.
* Merchant Circles: Respond to the most recent Masquerade post with a comment saying “Advancing my Merchant Circles Campaign” and giving the result of a randomly selected number between 1 and 4 inclusive. If the result is 1 then you may reduce your Mistrust by 1. If the result is 2 then nothing happens. If the result is 3 then you must gain 1 Mistrust. If the result is 4 then the Doge must increase your Political Power by 1 before the next Masquerade.
* Gerontocracy: If your Campaign has been “Gerontocracy” at the start of 5 or more Seasons, you may respond to the most recent Masquerade post with a comment saying “Advancing my Gerontocracy Campaign” . The Doge must increase your Political Power by 2 before the next Masquerade.
* Revolution: If you haven’t changed your Campaign in during this season, you may respond to the most recent Masquerade post with a comment saying “Advancing my Revolution Campaign” and naming a single other Elector whose Campaign is “Gerontocracy”. You may then set the Campaign of that Elector to “Jail”. The Doge must reduce your Policial Power by 2 before the next Masquerade.
* Assassin Contracts: If you have changed your Campaign this Season, you may respond to the most recent Masquerade post with a comment saying “Advancing my Assassin Contracts Campaign” and naming a single other Elector. You must then set your Campaign and the Campaign of the named Elector to “Jail”.
* Jail: You may only change your Campaign to ‘None’.

“In the rule Ethics of the Nobility, replace “At any time, any Elector may send the Doge a Rumour” with “Once per Season, each Elector may send the Doge a Rumour”. In the same rule change “within 48 hours” to “within the same Season”.”

does this fix my concerns? Technically you could still post the rumors during the same season they would made, giving people no time to respond to them. Is this intented?

I mean, no, but frankly that’s feels like a different proposal in that it substantially changes the content of the rule. Rumour reform would overwhelm this proposal and deserves its own treatment; I’d be glad to see why attempt anyone wants to come up with.
