If we had a working criminal justice system, I'd consider crimming you
for excessive vagueness here. (I'd identify the violated rule as 2143,
and conveniently neglect to identify which paragraph.)

Part of the problem with our current intentionally biased criminal
justice system is that there's no room for arguing back and forth in
email threads that span multiple weeks, so it's unintentionally
contributing to a decrease in activity. Dictatorial systems have the
advantage/disadvantage of low bureaucracy levels.

Better be power-3, not power-1?  Or are erratics intended to be limited 
to power-?.

Again, match power.  If Erratics are limited to power-1, the above is
fine.  But if you include higher power rules in the repeal, the above 
clause means that higher-powered rules can be repealed by simple majority.  
Intended?

In general, I think if Eras are switched with Agoran support, Eras
will become cheap and plentiful (like, as frequent as winning, 
perhaps) rather than rare (e.g. dividing Agora to small numbers of 
multi-year eras).  Not that this is "bad", but worth thinking about
whether this is intended...

Finally, should Eras have regulated Names?

This proposed rule worries me, mostly in terms of potential rules
implications. 3 might not be high enough to /actually/ pause the world,
and yet it's probably high enough to stop us determining what exactly
happened. (It's also uncomfortably close to the rule that killed B.)

That said, I personally am ready to restart Agora, but the problem is
that we need activity to persuade people to play, and players in order
to produce activity. So I agree with the sentiment of "get eight people
together, then restart".

How many people are ready to restart right now?
