Add a new rule called “Tokens”

Each Seeker may have a Token, which is an concrete noun. Each Token is privately tracked by its seeker, and publicly tracked by its sha256 hash which includes the Token plus a salt of 10 characters or less. A Seeker may change their Token at any time.

As a weekly action, if a Seeker has posted three different Snaps since they last changed their Token, each of those Snaps contains an instance of their Token, and their Token (or any of its synonyms) is not in the trite list, they may make a post to the blog with links to those three Snaps.

Each other Seeker may make one response to the post mentioning the one noun which they think matches the Token of the Seeker who posted the Snap

After 48 hours of making such a post, if no Seeker has accurately guessed their Token (or guessed any of its synonyms) in reply to the post, the Seeker who made the post may claim the Mastery in Subtle Product Placement Award

Add an Award called “Mastery in Subtle Product Placement” with a Standard of “May only be claimed as allowed by the rule “Tokens”“

against This feels pretty similar to the existing Private Criteria system, and not particularly difficult to pull off.
