Rachyl has been permanently banned from MafiaUniverse.
We don't do this often, but there were egregious violations on another site that would cause trouble on Mafia Universe. We decided to pro-actively ban Rachyl to avoid these problems in our immediate future. Reminder that we're not a police state shindig that monitors your thoughts and pasts, but if serious stuff comes to our attention we're not going to just ignore it and pretend things will magically work out differently here.

I'm just gonna get it out of the way right now: I am a bad role-player. I've played the games enough to know what every single option leads to (in terms of paragon/renegade changes, future options, etc.) all the way up through ME3. As a result, I'm just going to pick options that lead to my preferred outcomes. A perfect world state crafted by me, the goddess lute, that my vessel, Amanda Shepard, much dance through according to my whims.
And you're not getting a pic, voyeurs.

To bounce off SR, a challenge is not in and of itself worthy of aspiration. If my mouse only accepts input 66% of the time, a great deal of games become more challenging, but none of them become more fun.

As for it being protown, while this is objectively true, it's also objectively true that logging into everyone else's accounts and checking their rolecards is protown. That doesn't mean it's good for the game, which in a way, means it's not protown. Substitutions to gain an advantage for your team are not only just generally vile, but will also cause Lissa to come to your house and sneeze on you for multiple hours while you lie there, piteously, curled into the fetal position unable to defend yourself. And then you get a ban.
When it comes to making game rules, protocols, and guidelines, the main focus should always be on making the game fun. If an element is not fun to deal with, or only fun for a minority, it shouldn't be considered. OGI can be fun, it can make you feel particularly clever for "thinking outside the box," but at the same time it's not fun at all on the receiving end, and there's no real counterplay opportunities outside of engaging in OGI yourself potentially, and this isn't even accounting for the way these interactions tend to unravel games completely. Substitutions are in a similar category. They are necessary, since it's impossible to expect everyone to always contribute all the time with no accidents or mistakes, and it's also impossible to expect everyone to not just screw off, because people who'll sign up and dash out are bound to crop up. Policy should be formed around preventing substitutions when we can, and minimizing the impact of substitutions when we cannot.

I actually tend to not have a specific order for the missions. I hate Liara's mission so sometimes I put it off for as long as humanly possible as well.

Point was made and such and such. Then things dovetailed. Thread's served its purpose.

as a Euromutt I'll admit to an inherent bias against and detachment from the negative connotations of the phrase
That said, if enough people share DT's outlook I wouldn't be opposed to phasing it out, but I'd aim to phase out the meaning rather than the term itself. As an example, if everyone agreed with bop's definition of the term, we wouldn't have any issues. The 3 letters themselves can't and really shouldn't be regulated in my skewed opinion. It's useful game terminology and I wouldn't want to muss with that aspect.

this is pretty interesting tbh growing up the term "Chinese Fire Drill" meant pulling over and everybody swapping seats in the car

I've come to address certain rumors about my presence in this game
July 23rd, 2019, 01:32 AM
Seththeking (and, by extension, alternate account Solvis) has been permanently banned for a variety of reasons, the most pressing of which being several rape jokes, multiple sexual comments regarding other users, and generally being an obnoxious git.
In all seriousness, this $#@! won't fly. You don't joke about rape. Done. You don't drag other users into your perversions. This is a deal breaker. You don't get one month for it, you don't get three months, you get a perma. Know better. Be better.
