Touching blocks after they have been scored


I cannot find any mention of this but are there any limitations on touching or handling the blocks once they have been scored in a zone? Two examples:

  1. Scoring a block of the wrong color and, if your robot is able, reaching in and removing the block to maintain a uniform color.<SC4>
  2. Manipulating a red block that gets stuck on top of the scoring zone to allow it to fall in.<SC6>
Answered by committee

Rule <SG3> requires Teams to "keep blocks in the Field." As long as Team and Robot actions meet all of the criteria of this rule, there are no other rules that limit Teams from moving blocks into or out of Goals or around the field.
