    1) When giving your legacy, you used text of a size so big it caused a buffer overflow and crashed the servers. You got a 2 week ban for that, AND town didn't listen to your legacy and lost.

    2) Emma Magorobi. You had a rather chilly break-up.

    3) Yep! You and Esooa were voted the greatest wolf team of Season 13.

    4) You're an AtE vig. If someone uses AtE in the thread, you can dayvig them. Use is limited to two shots, and if they flip jester you die.

    1) Probably Season 18. I know we were all hyped for Zone Q11's unban, but 13 jesters 3 goons was a little too much. That was the year you won, by the way.

    2) No, but they ran mountainous arsonist in Season 12.

    I am a time traveller. AMA!

    Greetings. I am future Alison. While spectating Season 22 of the annual Mafia Championships on the VR microchip implanted in my brain, I was suddenly sent to the year 2021 by a strange distortion in the fabric of space and time.

    In three days, the distortion will correct itself and I will be yanked back to my own time. Until then, ask me anything about the future and I'll answer as truthfully as I can. I am going to go to bed soon, but once I wake up, I'll answer any questions posed to me.

    Why would you intentionally shoot for low content early game then?
    I thought I explained this? I guess I didn't do a good enough job.

    Maybe I wasn't clear how, in some sense, pointless Very Low Content posts are generally. The whole article is about getting the most out of Town. Matching your content to the game stage can be part of that. I maybe didn't focus on this enough, but I was really trying to hit the psychological impact different content has on the rest of Town. In very early stages of the game, I make the argument that you can actually get out of RVS faster by taking the game seriously in terms of providing something that forces Town to actually think about the game more critically. Providing serious reads when everyone is joking around is a way to do that. Granted it only works if it looks like you are trying to take the game more seriously when you shouldn't be. It might draw suspicion initially, but I say that if you explain what you were trying to do, then you probably won't get Elimmed for it. Plus, in the early stages of the game, It's hard to make a Medium Content post because there's not really anything to analyze. It's hard to make a Low Content post because hardly anything has happened.

    I don't think the 2nd sentence addresses the 1st sentence since I don't believe anyone holds the opinion of "Me randing Mafia makes me a bad person".

    What I think is more likely is that those who do feel threatened do so because one of these:
    1)Being called "Not Towny" equals to being called "Not Good Enough".
    2)They're so invested in the game or the game is such a large part of their life at that moment that anything tiny which threatens their desired outcome feels like an attack on them.

    If asked, I wouldn't know what to suggest to people how to address those issues since I don't think it'd be realistic to ask people "just be less insecure" or "just not have the game be so important", as those are not things that can be just waved away.

    Suggestions?
    My points cover both of these.

    For 1), remember that a scumread is a suggestion for your alignment, not a suggestion about your playing skill. For 2), remember that you're playing a no stakes forum game and there is no rational reason to get this invested into it.

    The biggest thing is that people need to stop feeling personally offended or attacked when accused of being mafia. All the other person is doing is suggesting that modbot randomized the order of a list of player names and you were in the top 2 or 3. Well over 90% of immaturity in mafia could be combated if people stopped taking scumreads like personal attacks and freaking out about it.

    I would also suggest that people make an active effort to suppress their emotions in mafia but I don't think anyone would do that regardless. Nevertheless, it's important to keep context in mind and remind yourself that you're playing an internet forum game for no stakes - it's hard to get too wound up about something like that.

    If you just keep those two framings in mind - not taking scumreads personally and remembering the game has no stakes - it's hard to get worked up to the point you lose your cool.

    so like

    that's probably not a good reason (and if it is then this concept is already fundamentally flawed) and modkilling someone for making a joke you don't agree with is kinda cringe tbh
    See above. If modbot literally does not allow you to selfvote that is functionally the same as you choosing not to selfvote because you'll get modkilled.

    Game was declared a no contest as a result of Mystery Player (BlueKang) being banned from MafiaUniverse. Reason was not announced in advance because doing so would prejudice your guesses. Subbing someone into his slot would damage game integrity, and calling it for one faction or the other would be unfair to the other if they had a chance of winning.

    Therefore, we agreed that the best option was to declare it a draw and make use of townie guesses to see how the game would have gone if BK had not been banned.

    Doki submits SPF/KZA/Nanook.

    The game is declared an unofficial mafia win for CFC stat tracking purposes, for the following reasons:

    1) Doki indicated that she would have voted Nanook over Echks, which would have lost the game in F7.
    2) Every townie except Doki felt Doki was a part of the wolf team, which would probably have gotten her executed at some point.
    3) No townie suspected Esooa, the deepest wolf.
