forums.cloutiverse.net, specifically the Clout/Announcements forum lays out what future updates I have planned for Clout. Also note that gameplay will change a non-trivial amount when The Lobby is released to the public.

Multiboxing isn't allowed, is stopped to any meaningful extent in an automated fashion, and would result in repercussions for the main character if an established player did it.

No, you can go negative once if you play an ability that costs Clout. You can't play it again while in the negatives, though. This is so you don't spend all your Clout buying an ability and then end up unable to play it.

Developer response from delosford

You're not really supposed to know what bills do. It was intentional that you'd just have to make educated guesses about the outcome of bills as a real Congressperson would do. You're all a bit spoiled with the player-run wiki having 5+ years of player-deduced mechanics and stats. In the early days, nobody knew jack shit, and that was how I liked it. It was really pretty hilarious to watch. For me. Since I was the only one who knew what things did. I was inspired by UO, which had totally opaque mechanics in the olden days. It made the game a lot more interesting since you didn't worry about numbers and such as much as doing things. Though there was also a site called uo.stratics where people would figure stuff out and post it over time, which I thought was neat, too.

Clout runs on a Linux (Ubuntu) machine that uses nginx for a web server, and is written in PHP/HTML5/JS. It uses MySQL for a database.

Under rating threshold (show) I think there should be some sort of cap on how much people can play on binary bills. For instance, .001% or some such would prevent people from playing against it anymore, or 200% would prevent people from playing for the bill anymore. It's just annoying to see floods of 100+ plays after the bill reaches 0% or 100%. I feel like this relic-hunting energy wasting is getting in the way of the rest of the game.

+ - !

Developer response from delosford

Notice how relics aren't being given out for those bills anymore? That's not a coincidence. The protections against farming needed to be updated considering they were written for 1/10th the playerbase.
