Why not just say that if the Administrator is a Player, he cannot use
the Veto power?

Anyway, the rule is unclear. If a Veto is used, does it only succeed if
less than 3/4 of all players voted for it? Is another vote held
immediately? Or does it go to the next nweek? Furthermore, won't it be
very difficult to override a Veto considering that at least 1/4 of the
players tend to idle and not vote?
