I Lawrence Jacob Siebert, CM of Always Comes Evening, San Francisco California, propose the following change to the bylaws.  As written, they prevent a single individual from putting up multiple props that are related. 
This means that proposals can not be broken up into related segments, which means that council must vote on them in their entirety or delay each vote unnecessarily, even if that is not the wish of the proposer. 
Further this prevents individuals from collaborating on multiple related proposals and introducing them at the same time.  
the original under the gun bylaw, as I recall, also provided for stopping people from creating R&U before it became R&U or changed classification, and I've also added this back.
Therefore I propose the following bylaw be changed from:
  1. Sneaking in under the gun
    1. Should a formal Proposal be made to Council, no subsequent Proposals related to the current active Proposal shall be open for their discussion period until the closure, or withdrawal, of the current active Proposal's discussion period and vote.
to:

  1. Sneaking in under the gun
    1. If a proposal to add or change R&U or character bylaw restrictions or requirements are made, nothing which would fall under such an addition or change may be created or approved until after such a proposal's closure or withdrawal.
    2. Should a formal Proposal be made to Council and active, subsequent Proposals made to Council and related to the current active Proposal shall be delayed, and queued in order of their being made.
      1. The next related proposal in the queue shall become active and open for it's discussion period after the closure, or withdrawal, of the current active Proposal or Proposals discussion period and vote.
      2. The proposer or proposers of currently active related proposals may choose to forgo this delay for the next delayed related proposal, at any time while their proposal is active. They may not skip delayed proposals in the queue.
      3. All such proposers must chose to forgo the delay for another proposal to become active.  If only one proposer of related proposals exists, it shall be assumed that they choose to forgo the delay, unless they state otherwise.
Thank you,
Lawrence Jacob Siebert
