It's not forbidden, so I think it must be permitted. As long as Mr. A. knows
what you mean, it should work fine with simple things like 'If a correction
is recognized, vote YES'. What worries me, though, is what might happen if
someone does something like 'If at least 50% of all players vote yes on this
proposal, vote Yes.' If everyone submitted a statement like that, it would
be impossible to tell which way the masses voted.

Recruit today night it feels.
