The following proposal puts all the “mechanical” rules in article 9 together at the top, then follows them with the official settings, before ending with the official mods. Hopefully, it’ll make the section a little easier to follow, without changing the interpretation of the rules: within each group of rules, they remain in the same order, so this shouldn’t affect precedence in any ways that matter to us.
I submit the following proposal:
Title: Cleanup in Article 9
Adoption Index: 1.0
If a rule with the title “Continuity” exists in Article 9 (“Servers”), move it to immediately after article 9.5 (“Official Mods”).
Move article 9.16 (“The Game Author”) to immediately before article 9.6 (“Access”).
Move article 9.17 (“Ending a Game”) to immediately before article 9.6 (“Access”).
