err, yeah, it would help if I read the proposal clearly before commenting on it.

I'm the same External Force who was the player known as Wooble when
the proposal was submitted.  While I ceased to be a Player for a time,
I'm not sure it makes sense to say that the Player I was previously
ceased to exist and that I'm now a new Player, common sense would seem
to dictate that I'm the same Player, just with attributes
reinitialized at the time I regained the Player-nature.

On the other hand, giving attributes to "the Player known as Wooble at
the time this Proposal was submitted" could be read to have a
retroactive effect on the game, depending on how you view the nature
of identity, the space-time continuum, and Theseus' ship.
