Proposal: What are these timespans for, anyway?

Timed out. Fails 2-4. Blognomic has passed the sanity test.—Clucky

Add the following:

00:00 dd/mm/yy on any given day is considered to have occured on both dd/mm/yy and dd-1/mm/yy, due to the limitations of expression engine to display time. A daily action made on any given day at 00:00 cannot be made again until 24 hours later.

to the end of rule 3.2 “Timespans”.

Both Wakukee and Clucky are considered to have immunity until the completion of the next Challenge.

There is no limit to the engine at displaying times. There is just a limit in some people’s understanding that 0:00:00 isn’t acutally midnight, but instead the period of time between 0:00:00 and 0:00:01.

That OR midnight itself… you do not know which, and thus cannot conclude either way.  for

but from a probability standpoint, there is a zero percent chance of it being 0:00:00 and 100% of it not.

Given those odds, I’d rather assume the more likely.

But I’d rather follow the information we have, rather than make speculations. Now can we stop and not let IRC arguments spread here?

Wait, you want us to not discuss something we are voting on in the comments? Isn’t that the point of comments?

Its funny because you are making the speculation that “it was posted at exactly midnight” instead of following the information “it was posted at at least midnight”

The information we have is that it was posted at “00:00,” whatever it is we are talking about. That time is midnight; at least, that’s what that notation means.

You know, the other way is simpler and easier to adjudicate. Besides, who says that Blognomic doesn’t have the power to alter universal constants?

imperial  the entire time rules are dusty, in my opinion they need to be completely revamped
