Quote from: AP on December 26, 2017, 03:58:02 PMI'm unsure if it is necessary to devote 2/3 of the rules text to examples of company names? For brevity could that be put on a separate footnote page somewhere else?
QuoteThe issue with no. 1 is not simple. The idea, as you state, is to enable fair access to limited resources (the companies), and also prevent abuse of the starting capital allowance; but the rule amended as you proposed would allow two players working together to monopolise all 15 companies between them.
QuoteAs to the jurisdictions, I do not want to prescribe that people should only act lawfully according to the laws of England and Wales when players might well be bound also by their own local laws; rather, the point is that players ought to be obliged to act in accordance with all law applicable to them, and it is for the players to work out for themselves what that is.
Quote from: DrSuperGood on December 27, 2017, 04:43:42 AMI see it needs to be defined better, my mistake...Each company has 1, or more, human players who own it. No player is allowed to own more than 1 company. Players can still play using comapnies they do not own if that company is owned and they have the company owner's consent. Companies that are not owned will be opened up for new players to own or removed depending on how integral their existence is to the map. Previously owned companies that are now unowned, and so open for new owners, can be maintained by other players who own a company with significant vested interest in that company but cannot be claimed as owned by them. Company owners have the right to set their company password and request a password reset in case they get locked out of their company.Creating of dummy unowned companies just to abuse the starting capital to help an owned company is not allowed and may result in the player's companies being deleted and for persistent offenders the player being IP banned from the server.This means it would take at least 15 players for all companies to be owned. Players who own one company can partake in another company with that companies owner's consent. Companies that are ownerless and are too large/interconnected to be removed can be maintained by players who own companies that depend heavily on that companies operation, at least until a new owner is found who can choose to lock them out of what is now his company.
QuoteEach player may play only one company at once, unless the player has the server administrator's explicit written permission to play more than one company.
QuoteThis is a bit too legally loose... For example in some countries digital piracy is not a crime so if some players were to post a link to such pirated content, possibly as part of "ordinary social pleasantries" for them, this technically is a big crime and one that could potentially even get you as the server owner (assuming EU or US server) punished for encouraging internet piracy. Hence it is important to define at least some legal region, usually where the server is located/registered.
