Proposal: This is a proposal.

Vetoed to nuke the queue, and for other reasons stated within. —75th Trombone

Add a new Law to the ruleset:

In any conflict of interpretation, Laws shall have precedence over Rules. No Rule may prevent an Admin from un-Idling a Protagonist in manner prescribed by another Law. Repeal this Law at the end of this Dynasty.

Erm, ‘negates or amends’, I wonder.. in any case we should be able to remove that provision with a CfJ if we can’t defeat it this way.

for Although in the way that the second sentence is worded, it seems exploitable.

for Voting FOR all these to get it fixed as soon as possible.  Admins should enact/fail these slowly enough for me to come in and CoV or Veto the unneeded ones.

I don’t like leaving the blanket Laws > Rules provision in the Ruleset. against

But shouldn’t laws always be greater than rules?

Saurik:

Rodney: currently there are very few cases where that is the case, and having such a thing just provides for a larger set of Rules that technically legal but are simply impotent because they purposely or apurposely modify a Law. It seems better to just have those Rules be not allowed to exist in the first place because they were contradictory.

veto Because Saurik’s right, and because Del Taco does the same thing more cleanly, and because we need to nuke the queue ASAP, and because when we implement something like this it needs to be more thorough, less holey, and permanent.
