“Clearly the Governor's quotes are not DB actions, and they therefore cannot be used without permission from the faction leader - in this case WvI - according to the rules. ”
I agree that quoting a Governor is not a DB action in and of itself. However, the topic of the post is about DB affecting actions, and if you look at the parts of the rules we've both been posting, they specify that the post. If the post is about DB affection actions, which I think we've reached the conclusion that it is, then the posts about non-DB affecting posts don't apply here, so they don't have to have Wil's permission to quote NAO members.
“In instances where named members of the GE have had fake quotes from them posted on the GNS, the post was quickly and appropriately removed from the GNS. ”
I don't know about those. Maybe they were posts that had nothing to do with DB affecting actions? Maybe they quoted a specific person who denied giving the quote to the admins? I dunno.
“The NAO should have control over it's own Governors - whether PC or NPC - and any quotes that appear from them on the GNS. If no NAO PC Governor actually said any of the things in that GNS, it is godmoding, and a clear violation of the rules. ”
The NAO should have control over it's NPC governors, maybe at all times, or maybe just for non-DB affecting posts. A PC has the freedom to say whatever they want, and NAO has no control over what gets quoted from them (assuming they do say it). Furthermore, something like the admins making the people who made the post tell them who the anonymous Governor is, and then verifying with them if they did or didn't say it would be a large breech in IC/OOC separation. If Wil wanted to find out if that was said IC, he'd have to find out through IC means. If they can prove beyond question that it wasn't said, then it'd be worth examining the case closely to see if it is godmoding (which it probably would be), and if that's technically a violation of any rules. It doesn't violate any GNS rules, since the only time it comes up is in rules for a situation that does not apply here, since the post was about DB affecting actions.
“Please enforce the rules in a non-biased fashion. ”
That's so never going to happen, be realistic. Still, imo, this isn't one of the many cases of the rules being applied biasly.
“the post is a poorly written set of falsified quotes. ”
It is definitely poorly written, as are most of my posts (I'll admit it). If the quotes are false or not, I think that'll have to be proven by you, and that the admins aren't going to help you look into that. Furthermore, I'm not entirely positive that falsified quotes are a rules violation, the rules clearly only say it is for "Posts that are not relevant to any database-affecting actions", which this is not.
“It'd be like us going on the GNS and having some random faked KR official, perhaps your secretary, claim you like to rape little girls. ”
Ahhh, not so. Raping little girls is not a DB affecting topic. Planetary ownership is. This would be like you going on GNS and faking a KR official saying that we made you KR's President, or we gave you all of our planets, or something like that. Those are DB affecting actions, so you could do that, according to the rules. We on the other hand just have to make a short post that says "Nope, he's lying, look for yourself" and it's all taken care of, and that's exactly what Vey's suggested NAO do.
“Veynom, if Wilhelm says he only has one Governor in NAO, then I'm afraid even you cannot contradict him. It's his faction, and he has control over how many governors he has. ”
Probably true. Wil can't speak for that Governor though. So it's possible, thus far, that the Governor did secretly say that, however unlikely. Furthermore, if the Governor didn't say it, it's still not necessarily a rules violation.
“Allowing unprofessional and immature crap, that violates the rules, to stay on the GNS is the best solution? ”
Allowing unprofessional and immature crap, that does not violate the rules, to say on the GNS is the best solution. Most GNS posts are unprofessional and crap. Mine would be too, which is why I don't write them. I'm not a writer, I'm a nuclear engineer, and engineers really aren't known for their communication skills ... at least not in a good way.
“The post containing fake quotes from the GE was deleted. This post, containing fake quotes from the NAO, should also be deleted. Enforce the rules! ”
There is a difference (probably, as I said, I never paid attention to the GE GNS's you're talking about). It's sorta like the discussion in Traders Lounge the other day, about Vodo being on the thieves list because he ordered his members to steal, but when Wil ordered Auron to confiscate property, it wasn't the same situation, so Auron wasn't added to the list. Well, here, according to the rules, whether the post is about something DB affecting or not determines if you're required to get the permission of any faction leader/owner whose faction's actions you choose to godmode. This post was about DB affecting events, so their permission isn't required.
