If an initiating player in a judged action takes longer than agreed upon time (1 month as the default) to send in orders, the event will be retconned from existence. Reasonable notice must be given to impacted players. In the event that the notice is disputed or a reasonable time frame cannot be agreed to, it is up to Boss to decide.

If a defending player fails to turn in orders in the same time period, the judge will consult with a possible proxy/caretaker (previously designated) or assuming orders on their behalf.

The goal of this bill is to avoid situations like Guatemala currently, or the Imperial Family in recent history, where a conflict starts, a judge is found, and then nothing happens and the event exists in sort of a weird limbo for months at a time. For the defending player, we already have a process that works more or less ok.

AYE in favour of this motion.

Honestly, I'm not too certain of the *need* for it, as I believe that is the current default position - but as it is good to get it in writing in the rules,

I’ve talked more to Red, and it’s clear that both sides had a part to play in the slowdown, but that’s just another point. At some point if everyone is lagging enough, judge has to be able to say it’s cancelled.
