I change my name to Athena.

Athena's Society changes its charter to read as follows:


If Athena's Society has points or BNS greater than the number of Members it has plus one, Athena's Society transfers one of that propoerty to each of its Members that can have that property, plus one to M-Tek. Athena's Society performs Managerial Actions or changes its Charter when the Prez of M-Tek says it does.

-*sighs* Let that be a lesson, kids. Don't write yourself into rules. It's a bad idea.-


I DON'T CFI this, but I would like to open it to discussion:
Statement: The sentence "Names given to game entities or types of game entities must be unique." in Rule 2 means that no entity may change eir name to a name ever used by another entity, regardless of whether or not the other entity still exists.

Defendant: Glotmorf

Analysis by Plaintiff:
Regardless of whether or not an object exists any more, if it once existed with an official name, then that name identifies that object. To create another object with the same name would be to cause that name to no longer uniquely identify an object; such a name would thus no longer be unique, violating Rule 2. As it is impossible to perform any action that violates the rules, it is thus impossible for any entity to change its name to the name of any other object, extant or otherwise.

Anyone have any thoughts?
