The point of the rule is to dissalow "Rule 306: connect4 wins: Connect 4 is awarded 200 points and the item proposed below; Win All The Nomics award meme"

I suspect if Connect 4 proposed a rule that said

the rule might not get approved :)

Depends on whether te definition of "win" changed prior to rule passage.

Also, once again, we fail to spell Nomic correctly. I can't vote AYE if it's not a Nomic 5 proposal.

An adopted rule-change takes full effect immediately following the completion of the turn it was proposed, with the following exceptions:
1. Adoption of any player-proposed entity or concept that singles out the author or any other player, by name or other identifying property, will be delayed indefinitely.
2. There are no other exceptions. This rule is narfable.


Proposal at time of voting open, as humbly requested by 301.

I think it's our own responsibility to make sure that no one forces through an insta-win proposal. And this would make it harder to include provisions like "Ugluk is required to wear a wig in his avatar," or "Crunkus must wear a silly hat."

The thing that really irks me is that those clauses are delayed "indefinitely." There's no stated way for a delayed clause to ever be put into effect.

AYE

Hey Nomiconians... Good to see you all out and about. I'm voting Aye because I think this rule prevents a different sort of problem: When people get all angry because someone was rather clever about rules and managed to sneak something by someone, so everyone goes and penalizes that player the next term with a rule change. I want to encourage that sort of lateral thinking, not open it up to reprisal.
