Caller's Arguments:

I intended to register when composing the above message, not realising
that I was already registered, and I think that intent is conveyed
clearly enough in this message to satisfy R869. I am obviously a
first-class person, so it seems to me that I must have been
registered, despite already being a player. However, according to

     The verb "to be registered" means to become a player (i.e., to
     have one's citizenship changed from Unregistered to Registered),

My citizenship cannot have been changed from Unregistered to
Registered, because it was not Unregistered to start with. Yet the
rules explicitly state that I can and did register.

Although I'm not entirely sure what that message did, I'm pretty sure
the outcome is that everything is the same as before I posted that


Caller's Evidence:

On 26 June 2010 21:12, Elliott Hird  wrote:

Gratuitous Arguments by Murphy:

Rule 869's definition of registration in paragraph 2
("to have one's citizenship changed from Unregistered to Registered")
is sufficient to trigger the exception clause in paragraph 3 ("unless
explicitly ... prevented by the rules").


Judge ais523's Arguments:

I judge CFJ 2807 FALSE. In order to "become" a player, ehird would have
to not be a player at the time; thus, an intention to register whilst
already a player would have to include an implicit intention to
deregister in order to work. There clearly isn't enough evidence to read
the interpretation "I deregister and register again" into ehird's
message, especially as such an action would be impossible due to the
cooldown period; thus, ehird's intent to become a player failed due to
the gamestate not being one in which e could become a player (just like
you can't transfer away an asset you don't have) and the next-best
interpretation making substantially less sense.
