There are two proposed amendments up for a vote in the UN. 3 of the 5 teams must approve the amendment for it to be added to the ruleset. The proposed rule clarifies the conditions under which teams may contact eachother. This will prevent teams that haven't encountered eachother in the game from trading info, or establishing alignments, or discussing a third team. This rule will ensure that, in the event of a server reboot, the game actions taken by all teams will be consistent. In practice, the result is each team will have a detailed record of all actions taken on each turn.
