Proposal: Space Master 2.0 2.0

Hat tip to @SurprisingEdge for help fixing a major overreach in the Space Master 2.0 proposal, and thanks to everyone for going around the voting cycle before we caught it.

I submit the following proposal:


Title: Space Master 2.0 2.0
Adoption Index: 1.0

Repeal rule 9.3 (“Continuity”).

Append the following text paragraphs to the end of rule 9.2 (“The Official Server”):

The Space Master must take all steps necessary to ensure that the data created by the official server is protected from accidental deletion or modification.

The Space Master may only deliberately view, modify, or delete the official server’s data through ordinary gameplay, to implement adopted proposals, or to address non-gameplay-related technical issues. If the Space Master makes a deliberate modification to address a non-gameplay-related technical issue, they must publish a complete description of their changes, and their rationale for them within a day.

Information about the state of the game on an official server, other than information stored in the server’s configuration files or information included in the server’s log files, is game information. Game information that the Space Master learns of through the execution of their privileged access is privileged game information. Persons must not disclose privileged game information to any player except when required for the execution of said person’s duties, and then only to the most limited set of players feasible, unless required by this Charter to disclose.
