The main purpose of this CFJ is to determine the relationship between
"selected nickname" by the player and what that player is generally known as,
and how this relates to "by name" clauses in R1586. As there are varied
precedents on naming this CFJ, I call this CFJ without prejudice to
provide the judge room to put together a free-ranging summary of the current
state of naming conventions.
Judge Murphy's Arguments:
coppro did change eir nickname to "The Robot" (CFJ 2851), and a
player's nickname is eir name (CFJ 2840). In particular, I
interpret Rule 1586 as referring to entities whose existence is
defined by the Rules; coppro is not such an entity (the Rules
merely define eir status as a player), so it does not prevent
em having the same name as any other entity.
