Ok, so in order to use this you have to install an agenda in a really secure server, you then have to have Transparency Initiative in hand and spend a click to install it on the agenda and then you get a credit whenever you advance an agenda (cards that just place advancement tokens on it don't count).
And what's the payoff? The biggest cost for an agenda at the moment is Government Takeover at 9 counters. Now getting 9 credits is certainly nice but if you advance normally that means the GT is on the board for 3 runner turns (first turn install, play Transparency Initiative advance; second turn advance to 4; third turn advance to 7; fourth turn score). Shall we just put that one down as jank?
For a more normal agenda it's actually even worse. Take a 5/3. Normally you can play that with normal advancement in two turns (IAA, AAA). With Transparency Initiative you need an extra click so the agenda remains on the board for 2 runner turns. And for all that risk you get 5, the same as IPO gives you.
Because Transparency Initiative is installed on the agenda it gets trashed when you score the agenda, you can't reuse it. Another downside.
Transparency Initiative, with it's added downside of having to install it, doesn't even give the same amount of credits as Oaktown Renovation does. Oaktown gives you 2 per advancement and a whopping 3 per advancement if you overadvance the agenda.
I guess this will be my nomination for worst card of the set.
