Sciento-2016-00047 September 2016Provided that the notion of authority delegation is accepted, accept the notions of mutual authority delegation and one-sided authority delegation as subtypes of authority delegation.Accepted2 February 2018

Sciento-2017-000327 January 2017Accept that licenses to teach [ʾijāzāt] are reliable indicators of which texts were considered authoritative in the Medieval Arabic scientific mosaic (MASM) in c. 750-1258 CE in the Abbasid caliphate.

Sciento-2017-00045 February 2017Accept the reformulation of the second law which explicitly links theory assessment outcomes with theory acceptance/unacceptance.

Sciento-2018-000312 May 2018Accept that the epistemic stance that can be taken by an epistemic agent towards a question is question acceptance (the opposite is unacceptance), where question acceptance is defined as "a question is said to be accepted if it is taken as a legitimate topic of inquiry".Accepted1 November 2018
Sciento-2018-000412 May 2018Accept the questions of the mechanism question acceptance and indicators of question acceptance as legitimate topics of scientonomic inquiry.Accepted1 November 2018
Sciento-2018-00058 October 2018Accept the new definitions of method as a set of criteria for theory evaluation and methodology as a normative discipline that formulates the rules which ought to be employed in theory assessment.Accepted1 September 2019
Sciento-2018-00068 October 2018Accept the new ontology of epistemic elements with, theories and questions are the two basic epistemic elements where and each theory is an attempt to answer a certain question, theories can be of three types – descriptive, normative, or definitions, and methods are a subtype of normative theory.Accepted1 September 2019

Sciento-2018-001228 December 2018Accept that propositional technological knowledge – i.e. technological questions, theories, and methods – can be part of a mosaic.Accepted11 February 2020
Sciento-2018-001528 December 2018Accept the definition of compatibility, as the ability of two elements to coexist in the same mosaic. Also replace the zeroth law with the compatibility corollary.Accepted3 June 2020
Sciento-2018-001628 December 2018Accept compatibility as a distinct epistemic stance that can be taken towards epistemic elements of all types.

Sciento-2019-000322 December 2019Accept that the commentators of suggested modifications are allowed to suggest reformulations of the original formulations. Also accept that, by default, the new formulation should bear the original author’s name, unless the author decides to give credit to those who significantly contributed to the new reformulation.

Sciento-2019-000622 December 2019Accept that the encyclopedia editors are to be granted official housekeeping rights to handle the ripple effects. Also accept that if the additional required changes are implicit in the suggested modification, the editors should create and alter encyclopedia pages to ensure that the accepted body of scientonomic knowledge is properly documented; if it is conceivable to accept the modification without accepting the ripple effect change in question, the editors should register these changes as new suggested modifications so that the community can discuss and evaluate them in an orderly fashion.Accepted25 February 2023
Sciento-2019-000722 December 2019Accept that the verdict on suggested modifications is to be decided by a communal vote that will follow the discussion period.

Sciento-2021-00031 August 2021Accept the definition of error, stating that an epistemic agent is said to commit an error if the agent accepts a theory that should not have been accepted given that agent’s employed method.Accepted8 October 2021
Sciento-2021-00041 August 2021Accept that the handling of scientific error, as defined by Machado-Marques and Patton, is compatible with the theory rejection theorem.Accepted8 October 2021
