against Nice jargon, which I hadn’t heard before, but being able to just “become” a player (without having to sign up with a blog account, or even have Internet access) has the potential for chaos.

for Trivial; it wouldn’t actually make the players in question nonidle, and they’d have to make a blog post to unidle. Before then, they’re unlikely to have much of an influence on the game.

Besides, the rule says that they can become a player; it doesn’t say how.

Precisely because it doesn’t say how, I don’t think we should add it.

Players are nonidle by default, aren’t they? “Idle” is just a flag you can acquire.

You’re right, though, this could just be read as a clarification of the first sentence of Rule 1.2.

“can become” means “eligible to become”.  This rule doesn’t change any mechanics of how one actually _does_ become a player.

against Trivial.  James mullard cannot become a player.
