Proposal: Glossariolalia

Vetoed and failed by Kevan. -2 to Kevan.

Replace the contents of the “Glossary” section with the contents of the “New Glossary” section at this wiki history page. Should any of the new glossary sections belong to a Team as a result of this enactment, they shall instead belong to no Team.

If “Glossary Reform” passed, add the definition of “Story Post” to the Keywords section, as specified in that proposal.

Splitting the current mess of glossary into an actual list of definitions, and a list of clarifications.

I’ve reworded the Calendar Date rule from “all dates must be exactly dd/mm/yy” to “this is how we resolve an ambiguous date”. And I’ve dropped the old bugbear of “Its only effect can be to clarify ambiguity”, given that its scope has always been wider than this. There are still a couple of crazy definitions in there (the last sentence of Quorum, and the entirety of EVC), but I’ll leave those as they are for now, as there are various directions in which to clean those up.

against  The Keywords section doesn’t inlcude Player and Leader; therefore, AAs will not be able to rename players and the leader.

Oh, I must have been idle when we moved that part of the Ascension Address into the glossary. (Ascension can also currently rename the term “Quorum”?)

I’ll propose a fix if this passes.

@Darth Cliche: It doesn’t include keywords from dynastic rules either, but we rename those on ascension as well.

We do?

Yes. During the First Dynasty of Qwazukee, Quorum became Weatherteam.

against Whoa…let’s change all of those keywords when someone ascends!  That…would be odd.

veto Quicker just to veto this and repropose, I suppose.
