Page Action: That One Rule
What would be the best way to fix the page?
This issue has been resolved and voting is closed.
+10 (yeas:14 nays:4) Make this a game-specific trope
, with the usual allowance for references to a game's rules in-universe,and lampshaded, discussed and invoked uses in a game mentioned within a work. Real Life
games would be allowed, but no non-game-rule (laws, government regulations, accounting practices, payroll or recruiting limitations or the like) examples.
+6 (yeas:10 nays:4)
Make It YMMV (Note that this is not mutually exclusive with any of the other choices, except In-Universe Only )
+1 (yeas:6 nays:5)
Make it In-Universe Only; that is, only examples like works where people are playing a game and commenting on its one weird rule, or games where the game itself calls out and acknowledges one rule as being weird.
-2 (yeas:2 nays:4)
Make it both In-Universe Only and Game-specific
-7 (yeas:3 nays:10) Make this No Real Life Examples, Please!
; please note that this would include cutting all real sports and real games
unless they are mentioned within a work. (At present, this would leave three examples; two about the Leg-Before-Wicket rule in Cricket and one about Right-of-Way in fencing)
