Proposal: Nudge Nudge

Passes 8-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Append to the rule “Movement” the following:

If a Tripper has been continuously Ready for at least the past 48 hours, then any other Tripper may move the Ready Tripper to the first Stop which is after the Ready Tripper’s current Stop and which has no Trippers occupying it.

Going back and forth on this one. On one hand, it’s going to bog down play if we have players only being able to move at the speed of wait-for-so-and-so-to-idle. On the other hand, I am pretty sure from past experience that mechanics seeking to punish inactivity tend to also push players toward the slowest nonpunishable pace of activity, and also to encourage lurking, which isn’t fun either. If you’ve got an idea that’s better than the standard hourglass, I welcome suggestions.

Moving them doesn’t reset their readiness, so you would be allowed to freely move them until there is someone behind them, correct?

Yes, that’s the idea—if there are three empty stops ahead of the Ready player, you would move them four times, until someone else becomes Ready instead.

Awesome, sounds pretty good to me. The only worry I had was if you had to wait 48 hours for each stop, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
