This does not require a Second, but if you do not agree you may put Objection in the subject line to force this Proposal to go to a vote.====================================================================

I hereby propose the following change due to the following reference point issue:

The Bylaw document is formatted thusly in this format:
1.A.i.1.a

This Proposal was formatted thusly, and incorrectly:
1.A.i.a

**** THE FIX TO THE FORMATTING ****

Current Bylaw:

"14) Methuselahs
A) A Methuselah vampire NPC is defined as a fourth or
fifth generation vampire.
i) A chronicle that owns a Methuselah NPC and wish
to bring it into play or direct influence of roleplay
shall notify the respective Genre Coordinator for that
NPC at least one week before use.
(a) The respective Genre Coordinator may object
to the notified use, if they feel it would damage the
consistency of genre.
ii) A Genre Coordinator may also request use of a
chronicle owned Methuselah NPC.
(a)This does not supercede any of the
restrictions on the duties of the Genre Coordinators
as outlined in section 3.C of the Coordinator Bylaws.
(b) The Genre Coordinator will notify the
respective chronicle that jointly owns the Methuselah
NPC of activity at least one week before use.
(c) The respective chronicle may object to the
notified use, if they feel it would damage the
consistency of the character.
B) While there is an objection, within the scope of
sections A.i.a or A.ii.c, the respective NPC cannot be
used.
i) If no agreement can be reached, the issue may be
brought to the Executive Team for mediation, or the
attention of the Council (which may overrule the
objection by a majority vote).
C) If a sheet exists in the chronicles for these
Methuselah NPCs, it shall be logged with the Archivist
and the respective Genre Coordinator for consistency."

Proposed Bylaw:

"14. Methuselahs
A. A Methuselah vampire NPC is defined as a fourth or fifth generation vampire.
i. A chronicle that owns a Methuselah NPC and wish to bring it into play or direct influence of roleplay shall notify the respective Genre Coordinator for that NPC at least one week before use.
1. The respective Genre Coordinator may object to the notified use, if they feel it would damage the consistency of genre.
ii. A Genre Coordinator may also request use of a chronicle owned Methuselah NPC.
1. This does not supersede any of the restrictions on the duties of the Genre Coordinators as outlined in section 3.C of the Coordinator Bylaws.
2. The Genre Coordinator will notify the respective chronicle that jointly owns the Methuselah NPC of activity at least one week before use.
3. The respective chronicle may object to the notified use, if they feel it would damage the consistency of the character.
B. While there is an objection, within the scope of sections A.i.i or A.ii.3, the respective NPC cannot be used.
i. If no agreement can be reached, the issue may be brought to the Executive Team for mediation, or the attention of the Council (which may overrule the objection by a majority vote).
C. If a sheet exists in the chronicles for these Methuselah NPCs, it shall be logged with the Archivist and the respective Genre Coordinator for consistency."

**** THE FIX TO THE FORMATTING REFERENCE ****

The current bylaw says this:

"B) While there is an objection, within the scope of sections A.i.a or A.ii.c, the respective NPC cannot be used."

While those reference points (A.i.a & A.ii.c) were correct in the context of the Proposal, they weren't correct reference points for the overall format of the Bylaw document.

The revised bylaw ought to say this:

"B. While there is an objection, within the scope of sections A.i.i or A.ii.3, the respective NPC cannot be used."

Thank you.
