The way Support and Object are written there's no time limit. Even after
the action is performed, Supporters and Objectors are still defined as
anyone who posts a support/objection for the intent (R2124). Usually
after-the-action support is legal but moot. But the phrasing of the notice
of intent and the action was:
> With Agoran Consent, I act on behalf of Agora to award myself and all
> supporters a Win.
Goethe expressed legal support *after* the above announcement, but is still
a supporter of the intent. Given the phrasing ("all supporters") could a
player supporting after the fact and take part in the Win?
Such are the facts of the case and the question, I don't argue strongly in
any particular direction.
Judge woggle's Arguments:
Even Sgeo's awarding of a win to supporters was effective (see also the much
more controversial CFJ 2065), it took effect when it was published and thus
only awarded a win to the persons identified as "myself and all supporters"
meant at the time it was published. There is no compelling reason to read in a
retroactive effect here.
