Well, now, I don't know anymore... I'm not trying to be obstructionist here,
and this might just be pedantic, but this just occurred to me and I should
say it in case it's important.

"As a game action without objection, a Player can activate a Tweak he
submitted during the current or previous nweek"

The problem with ehird's Tweak activation above isn't that he didn't submit
the Tweak. He did, just like we often submit proposals by just typing
"Proposal:" followed by the text of the proposal. My previous argument
against that was off base.

The problem with ehird's "I intend to activate the following Tweak: { Set
the gamestate to what it would be if ehird had been a Player continually
since Jan 16th 2009. }" might actually be that he intends to activate before
he submits the Tweak (note that I don't think this is equivalent to the
common "I submit and intend to activate the following Tweak" formula). The
piece of Rule I quoted above uses the past tense for "submitted", making me
think that there's a chance that ehird's attempt there might not work...
