Coordinator bylaw 3. C. ii. 3. is currently unclear as to what a Coordinator can enforce when it comes to collection. While a Coordinator should have the right to collect information relevant to genre enforcement, I do not believe this should necessarily extend to entire character sheets, should a Storyteller or Storyteller team object. As many of us have learned through the years, metagaming is endemic, and even information released in good faith to a ethical Coordinator could eventually find its way into the wrong hands.

To that end I propose the following, this will not forbid Coordinators from requesting character sheets and an ST team providing it. It will simply clarify that a mandate for compliance does not extend to the request.


3. Genre Coordinators may collect information on clan/sect/species activities (or in the case of the Justicar Coordinators, on matters which have been brought IC to the Justicar’s attention) from the STs or other Coordinators, who shall not misrepresent such information. This can include specific character information, but this mandate does not extend to an entire character sheet.
a. Failure to provide necessary information to a Coordinator or intentional misrepresentation of information shall be brought before Council and considered appropriate grounds for punitive measures.

Thank you all for listening. I explained my reasoning at the beginning because I do not have time to respond to every question about my motivations. The first paragraph above should explain what this Revision will mean in the future. The only thing changed about the bylaw is the line that is highlighted bold and italiced. :)
