Does GenSec have any checks/balance besides the site moderators?
If so, what are they? And can any legislation be passed in the WA that adds/removes checks and balances for GenSec? Or can GenSec be written into a WA proposal at all?

No, none, no, and no.

If we screw up, there will be a public outcry and moderator intervention. The rest would be a metagaming or possibly game mechanics violation (see proposal rules linked in my signature below)

Thanks! I was just looking around and couldn't find anything on those questions, so I got curious.

In the GenSec rulings Google Doc that has a link to it in the first post of this thread, the Ban On Secret Treaties (the first attempt) has been marked as being ruled illegal for committee-only and joke proposal rules, yet the actual ruling says it's not illegal for the joke proposal rule, only the committee one.

Read the comment on the far right. It isn’t possible to sub-divide to the question level. The legality column is at large.

I thought that might've been it, but there were other, earlier challenges, where more challenges had been made than what was actually used to rule the thing illegal, and those didn't have the dismissed claims in that column.

The comments on the far right are supposed to be very short and only note decisive decisions. If you have any suggestions on how to improve them while keeping them short, I'd be happy to make modifications. (Namely, meaning proposing additional or replacement text.)
