Proposal: We don’t have one of these yet, right?

Reaches quorum and passes, 7-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Add a new rule called “Atomic Actions” with the following text:

An Atomic Action is a series of steps, defined in the Ruleset as a numbered list, that affect the gamestate or Ruleset (or both) of Blognomic. When a Councillor performs an Atomic Action, they must complete all its steps; they must complete them in order; and they make not take any other action defined in the Ruleset until all such steps are complete. In addition, the Councillor performing an Atomic Action should perform its steps as quickly as they are able.

If an hour has passed since a Councillor began an Atomic Action, but they have not completed it, all its steps are considered illegal and may be reverted by any Councillor, and the Atomic Action is not considered to have been performed.

Note: Should this be a Core Rule or in the glossary somewhere, rather than a dynastic rule?

But no, we don’t have one of these. Josh suggested some good “is required to carry out this Action before they undertake any further Actions” stuff for the core ruleset last year, which would be useful to sort out. “Atomic Actions” might be a bit overdramatic when I think the same legal force could be applied to the plain English “must then”.

Note: I thought it was worth trying out in a single dynasty before deciding whether to move it into the core ruleset. I have a test case proposal coming up next.

Fair enough.
