TEXT OF ADOPTED PROPOSALS

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
ID: 8016
Title: Paradoxical Contract Obligation Fix
Adoption index: 2.4
Author: Alexis
Co-authors:


Amend Rule 2523 "Contracts as Agreements" by replacing "If whether an
action is permitted or forbidden by a contract" with "If whether an action
is permitted, forbidden, required, or made optional by a contract".

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
ID: 8017
Title: RTRW Cleanups
Adoption index: 3.0
Author: Alexis
Co-authors:


Amend Rule 1688 (Power) by deleting the paragraph "Power less than one is
called Ephemeral power, and an instrument with a power less than one is an
Ephemeral instrument.".

Amend Rule 2141 (Role and Attributes of Rules) by replacing "the
Rulekeepor SHALL assign a title" with "the Rulekeepor CAN and SHALL assign
a title".

Amend Rule 2221 (Cleanliness) by replacing "capitalization," with
"capitalization, formatting,". [I wanted to clean up some list bullet
formatting, but found the rule doesn't allow it.]

Amend Rule 2124 (Agoran Satisfaction) by replacing "the Executor of the
announcement of intent is not eligible" with "the initiator of the intent
is not eligible". [This deserves a note: we previously defined the Executor
of a message to be the player who sent it, but that definition disappeared
at some time. The effect was that if you were acting on behalf of someone
else to intend something, you couldn't support the intent. But this wording
accomplishes roughly the same effect, since under the old interpretation
you could just have the player you acted on behalf of to intend the intent
support it, seeing as there was no prohibition on it.]

Amend Rules 1728 (Dependent Actions) and 2124, in that order, by replacing
each instance of "With N Supporters" (case-insensitive) with "With N
Support".

Amend Rule 991 (Calls for Judgement) by replacing "within a week" with "in
a timely fashion".

Amend Rule 2492 (Recusal) to read as follows:
   A judge CAN recuse emself from a CFJ e is assigned to by
   announcement. When a judge recuses emself from a CFJ, then

   * the CFJ becomes unassigned;

   * the recused judge becomes ineligible to be assigned as a judge
     for a week; and

   * the recused judge SHOULD suggest another judge for the CFJ to
     make the Arbitor's job easier.

Amend Rule 2427 (Yellow Cards), by replacing "MAY" with "CAN",

Amend Rule 2449 (Winning the Game) by adding "once, by announcement" after
"Patent Title of Champion".

Amend Rule 2509 (Numerical Switches) by replacing "In particular, a
"natural" switch is a switch with possible values of the non-negative
integers." with "In particular, a natural or integer switch is a switch
with possible values the non-negative integers or all integers,
respectively."

Title: Random Bad Rule Cleaning
Adoption index: 3.0
Author: Alexis
Co-authors:


Repeal Rule 2443 (Expediting Proposals).
Repeal Rule 2431 (Proposal Competitions).
Repeal Rule 2530 (Poetry Duel Challenge Writ).
Amend Rule 2160 (Deputisation) to read as follows:

  A player (the deputy) CAN perform an action ordinarily reserved
  for an office-holder as if e held the office if

  1. the rules require the holder of that office, by virtue of
     holding that office, to perform the action (this requirement is
     fulfilled by the deputy performing the action);

  2. it would be POSSIBLE for the deputy to perform the action,
     other than by deputisation, if e held the office;

  3. either (i) a time limit by which the rules require the action
     to be performed has expired or (ii) the office is vacant.

  4. either (i) the office is vacant, (ii) the aforementioned
     time limit expired more than fourteen days ago, or (iii) the
     deputy announced between two and fourteen days earlier that e
     intended to deputise for that office for the purposes of the
     particular action.

  5. the deputy, when performing the action, announces that e
     is doing so by deputisation.

  When a player deputises for an elected office, e becomes the
  holder of that office, unless the action being performed would
  already install someone into that office.

Title: Limit Numerical silliness
Adoption index: 2.0
Author: G.
Co-authors:


Amend Rule 2509 (Numerical Switches) by inserting the following text
before the first paragraph:

  A "number" is considered to refer to a real number, unless
  otherwise explicitly specified.  A "number of (items)", where
  (items) is a set of discrete entities, is considered to refer to
  a non-negative integer, unless otherwise explicitly specified.


Change the title of R2509 to 'Agoran Numbers'.

Title: Anyone can balance Karma
Adoption index: 1.0
Author: G.
Co-authors:


[Allows anyone to aid in balancing Agora's karmic books]

Amend Rule 2510 (Such is Karma):

by replacing:
  2. Specify any other player
with:
  2. Specify any other player or Agora


and by replacing:
  3. Specify any player
with:
  3. Specify any player or Agora


and by inserting the following list item after the list item numbered 3:
  4. Not result in Agora's karma moving farther away from 0.


and by replacing each instance of 'player' with 'entity' in the
paragraph beginning 'When a valid Notice of Honour is published'.


Amend Rule 2511 (Karmic Balance) by deleting the paragraph beginning
'While the Karma of Agora is not equal to 0'.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
ID: 8023
Title: Zombie Lots
Adoption index: 2.0
Author: G.
Co-authors: Aris


Amend Rule 1885, "Zombie Auctions", (Power = 2.0), to read in full:

  Whenever a zombie (1) has Agora for a master, (2) an auction for it
  is not underway, and (3) has not been won as an auction lot in the
  past 14 days, then the Registrar CAN put that zombie (along with any
  other zombies that fulfill the same conditions) up for auction.

  In a timely fashion after the beginning of each month, the Registrar
  SHALL either initiate such an auction or, if no zombies meeting these
  conditions existed at the beginning of the month, announce that no
  such auction is necessary.

  For such an auction, the lots are the qualifying zombies, ordered at
  the discretion of the Registrar. The Registrar is the announcer, and
  the minimum bid is 1.

  The Registrar CAN flip the master switch of a zombie lot from Agora
  to that lot's winner after the winner has paid for the lot; for the
  purposes of the auction, to transfer a zombie to a player is to set
  that zombie's master switch to that player.


[The termination clause elsewhere takes care of situations where the
zombie ceases being owned by Agora].
