Re: Nomic 22

51b. Anyone who posts a link to this thread in another thread in the forum games section of the xkcd forums, then posts a link to the post on the other thread in this thread will gain 5 lolcats per such post. These lolcats may only be gained by posting in an active thread; for the purposes of this ...

Disagree with 15 and 21. Disagree with 51, since it allows players to gain an unlimited amount of currency. 51a.

And since 50 has not yet passed, I now get another 5 lolcats for updating the wiki.

Re: Nomic 22

Since both proposed 18a are, as far as I can tell, effectively identical, I suggest treating them as the same. I agree with 18a, 18a passes. Faubiguy gets three lolcats, since he proposed it first; YpsilonOmega and I each get one.

Re: Nomic 22

Disagree with 49. Disagree with I. According to rule 1, and proposal that three players agree upon "becomes a rule". But by my reading of rule 29, a proposal numbered with a Roman numeral is not intended to become a rule. So, supposing proposal I gets three "for" votes, there wou...

Re: Nomic 22

We do not yet have a use for class B penalties. Class A penalties are imposed for breaking rule 2.1. Disagree with 48. 26a. For any rule that passes, the player who proposed it gets 3 lolcats. Every player who voted for this rule before it passed, including the one whose vote made it pass, gets 1 lo...

37a. Any player may pick up a platonic solid that is on the ground, as long as the player is in the same realm as the platonic solid and does not already possess their limit of platonic solids.

Re: Nomic 22

I meant the moment the player performs the action which is penalized, but I don't think the intention of the one who proposed the rule is relevant. Looking at a dictionary, it appears that either is a valid interpretation in common English, and I don't know which one lawyers use. Agree with 44 and 4...

43. A player who has been penalized with a class A penalty may not propose any new rules until 12 hours after the penalty was incurred.

Re: Nomic 22

20a. Players should write if their vote makes a rule pass or fail. This should be done in the same post as the vote. Players who fail to do so will be penalized with a class D penalty.

Re: Nomic 22

YpsilonOmega, I think the very fact that you feel the need to use parentheses to clarify to which rule you are referring establishes the necessity of 32.

Re: Nomic 22

Disagree with 34, on the grounds that there is nothing in it which could conceivable conflict with another rule. 34a. A rule may only pass if exactly pi people explicitly disagree with it. If this rule conflicts with another rule, the other rule takes precedence. I have no idea what happens if we ca...

Re: Nomic 22

To clarify my previous comment: rule 30 claims to take precedence over all higher-numbered rules. Rule 6a says that any higher-numbered rules would take precedence over rule 30. So, at the base of any conflict between rule 30 and a higher-numbered rule is a conflict between rule 6a and rule 30. Rule...

Re: Nomic 22

Agree with 6a and 28a. YpsilonOmega, I'm not sure your assessment is accurate. It seems to be that rule 30 would overrule any new rule which claimed to apply retroactively, since by rule 6a, rule 30 would overrule rule 6a. Perhaps someone could suggest a rule to clarify this? Also, we could use some...

Re: Nomic 22

Disagree with 26 and 27.
Rule 1.1 is invalid based on rule 10; I suggest renaming it as 28.

29. All proposed rules listed on the wiki should show the date and time at which they were posted.

The purpose of this rule is to make it easier to determine when rules pass/fail based on rule 16.
