    These are the basic articles in the Constitution. If you've got any changes, suggestions, etc, post 'em here.

    What other "lower forms of Law that may be implemented" are there besides the Code of Laws?

    Well, let's see....
    Off the top of my head, I can think of Court Procedures. I think that's a GOOD example. Why factor out any other possibilities. Need to put a lock on the ruleset?

    Agreeing with Cyc - keep it as it is. No reason to limit things. Heck, someone might go nuts and create a CoS!

    To some that in itself might be reason enough to wish to use Black_Hole's wording ;)

    I, however, am perfectly happy with the original versions of all three of these articles as quoted in the first post.

    but that is the good part, if someone wanted to add a CoS, the constitution would first need to be amended to allow this. So this makes sure a majority of people want a CoS, instead of some small percent that just create a CoS

    The original lower forms of law wording was adopted in a prior DG to head off problems from an even earlier DG from people who tried to say that amending the CoL or adopting a CoS required the same approval level as amending the Constitution.

    On the same principle, there are "as prescribed by law" statement sprinked throughout the DG5 constitution to theoretically allow small tweaks like identifying who is responsible for government changes without needing the constitution to be changed. We get so worried about a demogame revolution that we make the constitution hard to change, and then purists point to that and use it to block change when its needed.
