Popular, 5-0. Enacted by JonathanDark.

If and and all do not pass, this proposal does nothing

In “Elements” replace “An Element is a word in vernacular English.” with

Elements have a single Type which may be Word or Category. Elements with type Word must be a word in vernacular English and are represented simply by that word. Elements with type Category are the name of Category, and are represented by the string “A/an [the category name]”

Add a subrule to “Fragments” called “Satisfaction”

A sentences Satisfies an Element of type Word if it contains that Word.

A sentences Satisfies an Element of type Category if it contains the Name of an entry in that Category.

In “Fragments” replace “and among those words must be all of the Elements in the Current Elements” with “and must Satisfy all of the Elements in the Current Elements”

Link fail at the start.

“and must satisfy all of the Elements in the Current Elements”

Might want to capitalize “satisfy” to indicate that it’s the official dynastic term.

I have no idea why that second link is busted

“A sentences Satisfies” probably should not be plural.

Are you unidling?

It’s ok for GloopyGhost to comment without unidling. It’s just that they can’t take any actual actions like dynastic actions, posting proposals, or voting.

for I think this is a good idea, generalizing Elements? It seems like sentence should be Fragment, possibly, though.

yeah, “sentence” should probably be “fragment”. I’ll add that to my patch-up list…

for “Where a Votable Matter refers to a second Votable Matter by name, it is assumed to refer to the most recently posted Votable Matter of that name which pre-dates the first Votable Matter.” does mean it’s safe to just refer to earlier proposals by name.
