Call for Judgment: Scene correction

Timed out 3 votes to 4, after four days. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 18 Mar 2009 16:38:19 UTC

Kevan, Influenza, and Gnauga have recently attempted to create Scenes, but these scenes have not followed the format required in the rules.

Attempts to create Scenes that do not follow the format prescribed by the ruleset shall count as comments. They shall not count as Scenes for any purposes. Comments that are not Scenes cannot retroactively become Scenes.

Influenza’s bodies would be reduced to 0 by this ruling. He could, at any time, fix this by posting a new, valid Scene using his previous roll.

for Yeah, this is how I see the invalid creations as working. Maybe in the future this should be put into the Ruleset by Proposal to clear up ambiguity.

This doesn’t really work. It needs to be a proposal to change things that happen in the future. I’ll propose it.  against

It would work, but it may not be the most expedient on the retroactive part. That bit should probably be in the Ruleset.

As I haven’t read them, or reread the rules that passed for that matter, I’ll hold my vote for now

against Redundant. If a Scene didn’t follow the correct format, it isn’t a Scene.

If any Scripter is benefitting from a Bodies count they shouldn’t have claimed because they didn’t create a legal Scene, just point out their mistake and reduce it. We should only gather round for a CfJ if two players actually disagree.

against because I can’t figure out what would happen if it passed.

Kevan, I made this CfJ because, after I set Influenza’s Bodies back to 0, he reset it to his illegal number. This was a while ago, and I think everyone understands the issue now. It followed the format you described; his action implied that he disagreed with me, so I CfJ’ed it.

All that would happen, at this point, is that this would be a precedent for the future. . . .

Qwaz, I did not reset my bodies count, it was like that when I logged on this morning, in any case, I’ve redone my scene now, so that should be okay.

I think I need to write my own scene.  imperial

Just so you know, gill_smoke, deferential votes on CfJs don’t count. You can only vote yes or no.

Or you can just choose to vote as the Producer does.  And then *tell* everyone it’s deferential. for
