In light of the fact that all the significant changes I remember Mr. in a Spacesuit making resulted in societies not functioning as well as they did before the change, and that at least one and possibly two of those changes have resulted in states of emergency and wins for me, I feel compelled to propose

The first SOE, etc., was not a result of an actual problem, but simply bribery of the jury.

If I recall correctly, bd was the only one who actually got bribed; the Baron judged as e saw fit. There was an actual problem, namely that the wording was ambiguous, so it was unclear who was correct.

Which is why I say it was bribery. It would not have happened if bd had not been bribed. I didn't say that BvS was a part of the bribery.

The second round of craziness _was not caused my change_.

It was caused by Wonko's societies prop that caused the current loophole.

My change only brought this error into view.

I'm somewhat confused as to what prop you're referring to... the current problem is, as near as I can tell, that your most recent society proposal removed the part of r578 which defined what a charter is; although the most recent revision of that rule prior to your change was performed by me, that was over an nyear ago.

Well, it seems that I may have been a bit hasty. I maintain that my prop did not cause this bug, just bring it to light. The fact that "societies can modify charters" has been around for a very, very long time; the various definitons of charter have never changed that. The definition of charters doesn't change the fact that they can be modified while still fitting that definition.

So, no, Wonko's prop didn't create this; it's been here for a very, very long time. Only now has the loophole been brought to light.
