========================================================================

Caller:                                 G.

Judge:                                  Murphy

History:

Called by G.:                           30 Nov 2009 22:28:41 GMT
Assigned to Murphy:                     06 Dec 2009 22:40:00 GMT

========================================================================

Caller's Arguments:

Rule 1367/13 reads in part:
       - Each player's voting limit on the decision is thrice what
         their voting limit would have been on an ordinary decision
         initiated at the same time as this one, plus five for each
         degree e held at that time
However, this limit varies based on the chamber of the ordinary decision
(Rules 2279/0 and 2156/15) so there is no Rules guidance on how to choose
"an" ordinary decision as a reference.  The value 15 is for green ordinary
decisions which are the R2156 default (G.'s base voting limit on green
proposals is currently 5).

Judge Murphy's Arguments:

Rule 2222 sets a maximum of either 12 or 1, and no rule taking
precedence over Rule 2222 claims otherwise, so it certainly
can't be 15.

For completeness, I believe that either
  * Rule 1367 attempts to set it to some value >= 1
  * Rule 2222 then reduces it to 1 (non-ordinary decision)
or
  * Rule 1367 fails to set it due to ambiguity
  * Rule 683 then sets it to 1
so, either way, eir voting limit is 1.
