Proposal: Boosting

Times out, 4-0. Enacted by pokes.

Adminned at 09 Nov 2017 22:54:26 UTC

Add to the Rule “Tessering”

The sum of the contents of a story post with the [Tessered X] tag is called a “Tessered Act”.

Create a new rule called “Boosting”

A Tesserer may “Boost” the Tesseract by paying 2 power. This reduces the amount of power than must be paid in each unfullfilled Tessered Act by 1. The amount of power a Tessered Act’s cost is reduced by is tracked on The Tesseract wiki page.


Lets incentivize making these future promises.

I intentionally made it impossible to have a net power by boosting your own Tessered Acts, but simple for two Tesserers to scratch each other’s backs in this way, and easy for a third party to piggy-back on their efforts.

I don’t 100% understand: does this mean that each action within a Tessered Act is 1 power cheaper, or the entire set of actions is 1 power cheaper?

Derrick will correct me if I’m wrong, but I think it’s the entire set that is 1 power cheaper, which is why he says it doesn’t give a net power to your own Tessered Acts (even with two Tessered Acts as the rule allows, your net gain is 0).

Yes, the deduction is applied to the Tessered Act, not items in the the Tessered Act.
