The more complex a system, the more likely you'll have inconsistencies or even contradictions. When trying to make a simulation, the more detail you add will have the ironic effect of making mismatches appear huge.

These articles are for straining game rules into something nonsensical but technically legal. Sometimes they highlight a problem in the rules that needs fixing, and sometimes they are just amusing intellectual exercises.

There will always be fa/tg/uys that will say "nuh-uh! you're not allowed to do that!" and try to "prove" we can't abuse the rules to have the wrong kind of fun. Try to keep those naysayers to the discuss page for each article, or to their own subsection named 'counterarguments' or 'no fun allowed' instead of letting them inject <s>strikeout</s> or '''boldface''' scolding into the article.
