We can’t claim final civil titles until after the drop post is closed. This gives time for everyone to monitor each other and fairly score the game.

A subsequent drop post could still be made, though, between the 24 and 36 hour windows?

Should we add that on or after the 20th, no more drop posts can be made? Other than that, I like the principle of giving us the chance to monitor everyone and score up properly.

Changed to close the 24 to 36 hour windows.

Stopping the posts does mean we’re stuck if there’s a tie but I suppose we can always propose to restart them.

By the way, isn’t it soft disallowed to edit a post? I saw something in Fair Play about “Architects should not edit their own blog comments once posted”. Only for comments and not the original post?

[TyGuy6] From the Appendix:

An official post may be altered by its author if it is less than two hours old and either no Architect has commented on it or (if it is a Votable Matter) if all comments on it contain no voting icons;
