21.01 Judges will make every effort to perform a paintcheck "without calling a player neutral." A judge may declare a player neutral.
21.02 When a judge determines it necessary to call a player "neutral," he/she will indicate this fact by standing over the player and shouting "Neutral."
21.03 Once a player has been declared "neutral," he/she cannot be eliminated from the game and is not longer an active participant.
21.04 A player not declared "neutral" may be eliminated while being checked or moved on while being checked. Players who moved during paintcheck may be asked to move back at the discretion of the judge.
