spoon-business: How does this look?

__Stil a Few Bugs in the System__

Amend rule 17 by replacing the sentence,
'Actions occur upon reaching the appropriate Fora.'
'Actions cannot occur unless they are recognized by the Administrator. When
an Action is recognized by the Administrator, it is treated as if it had
happened at the time when it reached the appropriate Fora. The Administrator
must recognize all actions unless e believes an action is either illegal or
destructive of play. The Admin must recognize all CFJ's. If the Admin
refuses to recognize an Action, e must declare so in a Public Forum. All
recognitions and refusals of recognition must happen in the same
chronological order as the Actions they respond to arrived in a Public

[[Thus, really bad ideas can be culled by the Admin, but e must recognize it
if a CFJ challenges eir lack of Recognition. The chronology bit ensures that
if I give someone 10 points to pay off Luigi and its not recognized until
after the end of the nweek, e gets the points before Luigi comes.]]

Amend rule 28 to add the sentence 'All fora which have not been designated
as Public are Private.'

[[So now, if two players have a spoken conversation, we know that that's not
a Public Forum.]]

Amend rule 128 to replace the text,
'A Judge's decision shall have the force of law.'
'If an Action is found to be illegal by a CFJ, it may not be recognized by
the Admin or, if it already was, it is treated as if it were not recognized.
If an Action which the Admin refused to recognize is found to be legal by a
CFJ, it shall be treated as if it were recognized.'

[Much better than that 'Force of Law' garbage.]]

Remove the last paragraph of rule 129, then remove the last sentence of rule

[[Just some cleanup. Actions don't happen until they're recognized, so no
changes are needed to prevent future "I repeal Rule 10" scams.]]

If there is a rule 10, repeal it.
Create a new Rule:
__Follow The Rules__

All game entities and the Administrator must always abide by all the Rules
then in effect, in the form in which they are then in effect.
Change the aforementioned rule's serial number to 10/1.

[[Rule 10 may look useless, but the important word there is 'all'. Without
it, what rules people are compelled to follow are unregulated, so I could
say "I declare myself immune to Bandwidth Rationing" and hey!, it's

Semper ubi sub ubi.
