Proposal: The Joneses

Timed out 5 votes to 0. Enacted by Kevan.

Adminned at 13 Sep 2018 09:40:06 UTC

If the Call for Judgment “The Four-Million-Year-Old Black Monolith Has Remained Completely Inert” enacted, apply the rule changes proposed by this proposal called “The Inheritors”.

Then in the “Neanderthals” rule, replace “the Monolith’s” with “the Neanderthals’” and add to the end of the first paragraph:-

They are tracked as if they were an Ape in the GNDT, but do not otherwise count as an Ape.

Then set the Neanderthals’ Genetics to NoNoNoNoNo, their Food to 0 and their Legacy to 0.

If we’re moving Ape Culture out of the GNDT it’s safe to re-enact The Inheritors, which failed due to overloading that GNDT field. This adds the Neanderthals as an NPC instead, if we’re now post-Monolith.

also would it be a stretch of the rules to consider the asterisks in the referenced proposal a spelling mistake and correct them to pound symbols?

Seems fine to me. It’d be even more of a stretch to interpret “add these four things to the top of a numbered list” to mean “but don’t give them numbers and keep the existing points numbered as before”.

We’ve casually accepted bulleted lists starting with “-” marks or with HTML-formatted bullets before. The only reason the list got snarled up earlier in the dynasty was because a proposal accidentally said to add “5.” to the end of a list that already had seven items.
