============================= CFJ 3446 =============================
In Rule 2447/0, the "first week" of a month is the Agoran week
in which the 1st of the month occurs.

Judged FALSE by aranea: 28 May 2015
Other possibilities include:
- The "first week" means days 1-7 of the month (i.e. it's a
"relative duration" as per R1023.
- It's the first week that falls entirely within that month
as per R2327.
I don't have a strong argument for any of these.
It's possible that R2447 will be repealed soon, but the proposed new
rule doesn't fix this language.
[Arbitor's note: As of CFJ assignment, disputed text is in R869/38].
Rule 2447/0 (Power=1)
In the first week of every month, the Registrar shall use the
method described in Rule 2130 to attempt to deregister every
player that has not sent a message to a public forum in the last
month. This action is the Monthly Deportation.
Players who have not sent messages to a public forum in the last
month are encouraged to deregister themselves before the Monthly
The cited rule 2447/0 is ambigous, so there's some room for reasonable
interpretation here. Assuming the "first week" refers to the Agoran
week in which the 1st of the month occurs would create some problems:
The Monthly Deportation should take place in the new month because
the deregistration requirement of R869 (then R2130) refers to the
"last" month. If the 1st of a month falls on a Sunday, the Registrar
would have to perform the Monthly Deportation on that exact date; this
seems to be an unreasonable requirement.
The other two proposed interpretations would make more sense. I prefer
the option "relative duration, days 1-7 of the month".
I judge FALSE.
