Call for Judgment: Remote execution

Reaches quorum 6-0 and is enacted -SingularByte

Adminned at 26 Mar 2023 16:07:44 UTC

After the text “If a disk Effect would report or change one or more values that are privately tracked by the Gridmaster, the Runner who is Activating the disk must privately inform the Gridmaster of the disk being Activated and all values that were chosen as part of the Effect. ” in the rule Disks, append:

It is permissible for a Gridmaster to activate a Runner’s disk on their behalf at their private request, or to Execute on that Runner’s behalf at their private request, with the Gridmaster processing that request at their earliest convenience. The effects of such a disk activation should also be handled by the Gridmaster on that Runner’s behalf, using the legal values (if any) that were chosen by the Runner for that effect.

Uphold any previous instances of the Gridmaster activating a disk on a Runner’s behalf.

The rules are a little vague on how much the Gridmaster does when activating someone’s disk, so this is an attempt to formalise it and uphold the possibly illegal instances of it happening in the past. This is intended for cases when you want to execute a disk, but technically can’t because you can’t alter your own Power to pay the cost.

might also want to include a fix for getting number-crunches, since the wording for that is also “spend X power”

Isn’t that already handled in Grue Houdini? “A Runner can spend any positive amount of Power to increase their Number-Crunches by that amount by notifying the Gridmaster of the amount of Power they wish to spend”
