I'm currently working as C# developer for a small company in Germany. I enjoy programming and highly value improving my skills and my code.

Feel free to visit my blog, where I (besides programming) mainly write about the ancient board game Go.

comment A word for the act of locally improving the situation in a stagnant environment
@Mari-LouA Done! I'm just a bit afraid it becomes too localized.

comment A word for the act of locally improving the situation in a stagnant environment
I am surprised though that there seems to be no good generic term for this. In my native language I cannot think of one either.

comment A word for the act of locally improving the situation in a stagnant environment
Domain: Scientific article about P2P/Bittorrent networks, in particular the percentage of blocks available to all (non-seeding) peers in a network, often with availability < 100%. High values indicate that the network has been seedless or with slow seeds for a long time, possibly abandoned, even though it seems nice at first to have all present blocks shared by all clients.

For clarification: It would be nice if the term could include the distinction you explained, but it is not required. The most important factor is "locally improving while (as a sign/consequence of) globally stagnantion".

comment A word to describe a player's possible action during their turn
@BraddSzonye Yes to your question. -- I also think that actions would probably be easiest, I'm just looking for alternatives, since the term is already used for something different in my case that I'm unable to change (not important in this question).

I think play captures it very well, doesn't it? - it is an option that is (or can be) performed

@BraddSzonye I edited the question, no sure if that clears it up really. -- I would like to avoid action because it leads to naming collisions in my particular case.
