I take the Ministry of Change.

I publish the following Ballot:



Submitted by Ivan Hope

Create a Rule that is exactly the same as the one described by this
page except not repealed:

Set every Player's Hit Points, Health and Maximum Hit Points to those
specified on this page:

Encourage all Players to pretend that that never happened.


  Animal Personhood

Submitted by Billy Pilgrim

At the end of Rule 4E4 (Joining and Leaving), add the following sentence:
Notwithstanding any requirements that would deny it this status, in
this Rule or any other, The Operantly Conditioned Beast is to be
considered an Outsider and a Player.

In Rule 4E71 (Operant Conditioning), replace the following text:
The Operantly Conditioned Beast (aka The Beast or The OCB) is a Game
Object capable of taking certain Game Actions, known as Tricks*. The
OCB is a COO and a DOO.

* This Rule takes precedence over Rule 4E7 in that Tricks are Game
Actions despite not being defined individually by the Rules.
by the following:
The Operantly Conditioned Beast (aka The Beast or The OCB) is an
Outsider and a Player. The Beast perfoms Game Actions in one of two

- Any given Player may, once per nweek, as a Game Action with no
objection in two rdays, cause the Beast to take a single Game Action.

- The Beast is also capable of causing certain changes to the state of
the Game, which are specified in Tricks*. Tricks are randomly
performed on a fixed schedule (see below), and no Player may cause the
Beast to perform a Trick as a Game Action.

Set the Beast's macks to 50.
Set the Beast's Score to 0.
Set the Beast's Vote Power to 1.
Set the Beast's DNA to 52.
Set the Beast's Mental State to Calm.

"I have fish stuck to me":

{In Rule 34, replace "range is positive integers" with "range is
non-negative integers". [[After all, that unspendable last mackerel is
rather pointless, no?]]}


Zombies have to eat too!
Amend rule 4e55 to read:
Murder is a felony that is committed when an Alive Player
intentionally causes another Alive Player to become Dead.

Emergencies are annoying

n Rule 4E50 (Public Displays), add a paragraph that reads:
A Player may, as a Game Action with 4 Support and no Objections within
2 rdays, Approve a Public Display. The Public Display in question must
either be provided in full as part of the Game Action or linked to on
a static web page [[e.g. permanent link on the wiki]]. When a Player
successfully Approves a Public Display, the Gamestate is changed to
reflect what it would be if the Approved Public Display were accurate
as of the time the Player attempted to Approve it. Any subsequent
changes (Game Actions or automatically triggered events) that would
normally be reflected in this Public Display are retroactively


The rapier is gone

In Rule 11, replace
When created, the Value of an Instance is its Attribute's Default Value
When created, or when the Value of the Instance cannot be determined
by other Rules, the Value of an Instance is its Attribute's Default
Set the gamestate to what it would be if the above change had occured
at the beginning of nweek 139.

Exquisite Corpse


Create a new Rule that reads:

No Player who is also an Orc may exchange points for mackerel, earn
mackerel, give mackerel, or purchase using mackerel. In order to
facilitate the identification of such Players, the Minister of Play is
required to maintain a Public Display of all Orcs.



InterNomic Proposal

Create a rule with the following text:
B-Nomic shall be a player of this InterNomic if all conditions for
joining are met:
The Minister of Foreign Relations shall determine all game
actions for B-Nomic in the InterNomic.
