Proposal: Blueprint: Caffeine-enforced Duct tape

Self-killed. Failed by Kevan.

Adminned at 06 Mar 2010 10:42:40 UTC

Add a new Part to the ruleset, as a sub-rule of Rule 2.2 (Inventions), called ‘Caffeine-enforced Duct tape’:

Cost: 2 Caffeine for every Part the invention has, including this one; and 2 Gems.    Power Requirement: 5
Effect: The owner of an invention fitted with Caffeine-enforced Duct tape may, at any time he would be able to dismantle the invention, add or remove parts of the invention. He may do so by spending 2 Caffeine for every such action and the respective costs of every part added, and then updating the wiki page accordingly. He does not get resources back by removing parts in this manner or by dismantling an invention which has Caffeine-enforced Duct Tape. Caffeine-enforced Duct tape may not be removed in this manner.

No real use for caffeine so far…

Power requirement and some other resource cost is needed because otherwise this is a win-win part without disadvantages…

against If I read this correctly, this allows you to attach parts to the invention without decreasing your income appropriately.

Was this proposal posted before Keba’s and mine? Because I don’t recall seeing it on the blog when I posted mine.

Also, “They” is often used in BlogNomic instead of “He”, even if only on player/Commoner is meant. JFY

[Keba] The core ruleset uses a mix of “he” and “they”. It’s probably not worth legislating, as automatically rewriting such sentences could make them ambiguous.

Oh, I dont want a Rule, which forbids “he”. I just wanted to say, that “they” is more often used than “he” because of gender problems. Generally, I think Commoners are (unlike Guests) male, so there is no big issue with “he” ;)
