Call for Judgment: Take two of take two

Reached quorum and enacted, 7-1. Josh

Adminned at 07 Aug 2021 19:04:03 UTC

Repeal all dynastic rules created on or before 6 August 2021.
Fail all pending proposals created on or before 6 August 2021.
If an attempted enactment or failure of any proposal created on or after 7 August 2021 was illegal purely because that proposal was not the oldest pending proposal at the time it was enacted or failed and/or because Blognomic was in Hiatus when the proposal was submitted/enacted/failed (but the enactment or failure was otherwise legal), uphold that attempted enactment or failure (the proposal ceases to be pending).

Set the special case rule Dynastic Distance to be Inactive.

A reprise of Take Two!, effectively upholding that it worked. (EDIT: I also added a fix for the possibility that the Ascension Address failed due to specifying an illegal synonym.)

The original CFJ said “If the EVC of the Leader named lemonfanta is not FOR, this CfJ has no effect.”. An EVC is a comment, not a vote (and the definition may be broken in other ways too, causing it to not apply); (EDIT: also, lemonfanta was not a Leader at the time, as Jumble has pointed out). As such, I’m far from 100% confident that the original CFJ did anything (or that a scam based on, e.g., “actually Jumble is not a player for dynastic rules, because Dynastic Distance never got turned off properly” or “no proposals have passed all dynasty, because the older proposals weren’t failed legally and so we’ve been processing the queue out of order” would fail), and for a CFJ with effects this widely reaching, it’s better to have agreement now that it worked than it is to have a big argument about it later.

This is worded in such a way that if Jumble sets a new theme, we don’t have to wait for the CFJ to pass before resuming dynastic gameplay – it won’t repeal any dynastic rules, or fail any proposals, created in the future.

I thought we were done with the annoying “actually the game state has been wrong for the last two weeks due to an innocent mistake no one noticed but instead of just saying ‘sure whatever let’s uphold everything and move on’ we’re gonna act like everything done needs to be undone “ shtick

also lemon was leader at the time. She was arguably not emperor, but she was still definitely leader.

for Clucky, calling this ‘annoying shtick’ is not helping the whole moving-past-the-tension project. You can disagree with it and I think you have grounds to do so, but, you know, *taps the sign*
