-------------------
Justification
-------------------  

Gnostic Kin outnumber any other type of kin in the org. There is no point to keeping them notify when just about every Changing Breeds Game encourages them to be made when a kinfolk PC is made. The extra work this places on staff and on the archivist is unnecessary. 

 

The Gypsy&Rom Regulation is to make the bylaws a bit more clear and consistent. They're already regulated as approval by their respective offices. This just ensures the regulation is consistent across the board. Apologies again on the racist terminology re: Gypsy, it's a term in our bylaws and in our books and I really really wish I didn't have to include it. 

 

I'm also going from Special-kinfolk to Demi Supernatural Kinfolk because I created far too much confusion with that special label and I regret those life choices and wish to correct them. 

 

-------------------
Change Log
-------------------      

 

Fixed the C/P of the old bylaws. Thanks Google!

Cleared up Language and fixed the approvals 

Moved Shih to notify because I was told improperly about a prop!

Further clarified on language, added on a couple things per coordinator feedback

Fixed a couple typos because ASKJFAKLSFMSF drafting process.
