I neglected to make such an announcement for g1; my mistake.
Now, some players who have just noticed the lack of GIVE checking
insist that it's well within the scope of the rules to use GIVE
as a military option, despite the fact that I asked them not to.
(So much for my thinking that it is so clearly a gap in the permission
system and an abuse to use GIVE in this way that no reasonable gamer
would do so)
Anyway. What shall I do?
o Make an announcement that this use of GIVE is "against
the rules", and shouldn't be done?
o Tie GIVE to ADMIT status?
o Make a parallel admit-like thing for GIVE (say, "RECEIVE")
o Replace the whole mess with a DECLARE level or bit-set.
