    I personally wouldn't use it because I check MU often enough anyway, but I think it has the potential to be useful for those who often don't, especially people who signed up for a game and then forgot about it!!!

    Toggle options for specific notifications could be neat though; I might actually use them then, depending!!

    A lot of people seeing this thread are probably those who check MU of their own accord as well, anyways!!!!

    WHAT THE $%#! DOES "WTF" MEAN?

    Are you not familiar with some of the terminology used by the other players? Maybe this will help you: TERMINOLOGY EXPLANATIONS.
    MAFIA GAME RULES
    Rules may vary from community to community, so we highly advise you to carefully read these rules.

    • Only post/talk about the game in this thread. Don't PM other players, unless you are mafia and wish to talk with your teammates. Also, don't post anything about the game in other threads or on other forums.
    • Don't try to use the form of your role PM. So a screenshot of your role PM would be cheating.
    • You are not allowed to change your avatar, location or any other profile info during game in any way that could be construed as hinting at your role.
    • This is a game of lying. Players are expected to lie. No statement or promise a player makes within the game has any force outside the game. As an example, a bet offered in a game is not something you can collect if you win.
    • If we believe you to be bending the rules intentionally in a way that clearly goes against the spirit of the rules and the game, then that would also be grounds for modkill.
    • If you have any questions about rules, send a PM to your host. Avoid asking questions to the host in the thread.
    • Don't ever refer to private communications with the Game Host.
    • If you should ever require a replacement, PM Lissa and stop posting in the thread.
    • No hydra'ing / multi-accounting is allowed. Do not share your account with anyone else.
    • You are not allowed to reference the post-game voting during the game. I.e. you cannot post "if you lynch me, you're not getting my vote after the game" or anything like that.
    • Treat your fellow players with respect. Hostility will not be tolerated.


    Refer to this post for the complete, standard ruleset for mafia games.



    I will repeat this particular rule once more in big letters to make sure you understand:

    DO NOT EVER REFERENCE THIS GAME OUTSIDE OF THIS GAME THREAD. YOU SHOULD NOT BE TALKING ABOUT THIS GAME WHATSOEVER ON YOUR HOME SITE. IF PEOPLE ASK YOU QUESTIONS, TELL THEM YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT THE GAME AND LINK THEM TO THIS THREAD.
    MINIMUM ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS
    All players are required to make a minimum of 10 posts per game day.

    The game hosts and tournament organizers reserve all rights to immediately sub out any player not meeting this requirement, regardless of whether or not the player has met the requirement on previous days. Similarly, if players are only meeting this requirement by spamming and/or posting in the last hour of the day, that and similar circumstances would also be cause for substitution.

    If players aren't posting, the tournament organizers will always first try to prod the players in question.

    SUBSTITUTION PROCEDURE
    If your representative needs to sub out during a QUALIFIER, your community's backup will take their place, assuming 1) you've elected one, 2) they've registered a user on Mafia Universe, and 3) that I'm able to get a hold of them within a reasonable amount of time (i.e. with enough time left in the current phase for the sub to work with).

    If I can't get a hold of your backup, I will give the spot to a representative from a community that joined the series late - or failing that, a backup from one of the larger communities.

    If your representative needs to sub out during a SEMIFINAL or FINALE game, your community's backup will NOT take their place. Instead the next person who was in line to receive a semifinal or finale spot will take their place.
    DISCLAIMER ALERT
    The beauty of the Mafia Championship is that it brings communities closer together, and it provides an opportunity for players to learn new playstyles, metas and mechanics. And hopefully make new friends as well.

    All that being said, the games can also very quickly become overwhelming and frustrating since you probably won't be able to play completely in the same way that you're used to. You don't necessarily need to adapt, but you will probably need to accept that some of the other players will have a different approach to the game than you.

    We hope that you will embrace this as part of the experience. It's easy to grow frustrated with people when you don't know them (imagine how you would have felt playing with your friends on your home site if you didn't know any of them when you played your first game together), so a huge part of playing in the Championship is also getting to know the other players in some way.

    Specifically, the seasons have taught us that you should be prepared for:
    • A very high level of activity. On average, there will be 500-600 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game in qualifier games, and likely more in semifinal/finale games. This is a melting pot of dedicated and enthusiastic players all gathered in one game.
    • You will likely face very different posting styles: Some will post walls of texts with many quotes, some will post a ton of one-liners, and some people will be very keen to interact in real-time in the thread (using the thread as a chat rather than a thread you pop into a few times a day).
    • A flurry of activity towards the end of the day. This means that if you check out 5 hours before the day ends, you should not be surprised to return the next day to see that the wagons were changed multiple times. If you want your vote to count, be careful to not agree to a game where you can never be around for EOD.
    • A few players in your game will probably have played with each other before. This has become impossible to prevent as increasingly many players have played on Mafia Universe.
    • We do not condone abusive remarks and we have banned several communities from participating based on this before, but each season features dozens of new communities, so there is always a slight risk that you might encounter abusive players. If you do, please report them and we'll take care of it.


    Past seasons have shown that players get more enjoyment out of the games when they make connections with the other players, so we highly encourage you to join our Discord server either before or after the game.

    Finally, we encourage you to at least skim some of the season 7 games to get a sense of how the games usually play out: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...nship-Season-7

    FAQ

    Are you unsure about how actions are processed or how roles interact with each other? Then read more here:

    ORDER OF OPERATIONS

    Night actions are processed in this order:

    Strongman kills
    Roleblocks
    Jails
    Doctors
    Bodyguards
    Kills
    Investigations
    Backups

    When an action was submitted during the night will never matter when the actions are processed.

    ACTION FEEDBACK

    These are the results you will get when you submit certain actions.

    Non-investigative roles when they submit an action (they also receive this if they are roleblocked):

    Your action on Player A was received.
    Investigative actions return results even if the target dies on the same night.

    Actions that count as visits are counted as visits even if the actor dies on the same night.

    Investigative roles (Tracker, Cop, etc.) when roleblocked:

    Your action on Player B failed.
    Trackers when tracking a person that didn't visit anyone (or if they targeted a Ninja):

    Player C did not visit anyone.
    Watchers when watching a person that wasn't visited by anyone (or only visited by a Ninja):

    Player D was not visited by anyone.
    Alignment Cop when investigating a town-aligned player (or a Godfather):

    Player E is Town
    Watcher when watching a person that was visited by multiple people:

    Player F was visited by Player G, Player H, Player I
    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How do I submit my action?
    Use the form below the game thread. If your role has a night action, the form will only be visible during night phases. It's not possible to submit actions in advance of the night phase.

    What does it mean if the Mafia Host says that night kills are assigned?
    In games with this setting turned on, the member of the mafia team that made the most recent night kill submission will be the one assigned to the kill, which means that the kill can be blocked if a Town Roleblocker or Town Jailkeeper target the mafia player in question. Similarly, the kill can be tracked and watched by Town Trackers and Town Watchers. If this setting isn't turned on, then it doesn't matter who the last person to submit the mafia kill is, as the kill is unblockable and untrackable in this case.

    Where do I find example role PM's?
    This thread contains example role PM's for all roles currently supported by the Modbot as well as information on the various modifiers. Here you will find the answers to a lot of questions not covered in this FAQ section.

    Which roles can self-target?
    Only Watchers are able to use their ability on themselves at night. This means that Doctors or Jailkeepers aren't able to protect themselves, for example.

    Which roles are not able to target the same players on consecutive nights?
    Doctors, Jailkeepers, and Roleblockers are not allowed to target the same player twice in a row. Everyone else is, including Bodyguards. Note that this non-consecutive restriction still holds true even if one of these three roles were blocked the night before when targeting the person that they're attempting to target again.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A and Jailkeeper B or Roleblocker A and Roleblocker B target each other (and are not targetted by other blockers)?
    In the case of Jailkeepers, they will block and protect each other. In the case of Roleblockers, they also block each other. This means that the two players are trackable to each other that night by Trackers and Watchers. It also means that if one of them is mafia and happens to simultaneously be the one submitting the factional kill that night in a game with assigned kills, then this kill is blocked. This same principle applies to longer loops. I.e. in a A > B > C > D > A loop, everyone is blocked.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Jailkeeper A?
    Jailkeeper A will be blocked in this scenario. Refer to the order of operations: Roleblocks process before jails.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Roleblocker B who targets Player C?
    As stated above, roleblocks process before jails, so Roleblocker B will successfully block Player C. I.e. Jailkeeper A will fail to block Roleblocker B, but will still protect Roleblocker B.

    What happens if Jailkeeper A targets Jailkeeper B and Jailkeeper B targets Jailkeeper C (who isn't targeting any of the former two)?
    In this case, Jailkeeper A would prevent Jailkeeper B's block from occuring, meaning that Jailkeeper C's action is not blocked.

    If an X-Shot role is blocked while using a shot, do they lose that shot forever?
    Yes. A 1-shot Vigilante being blocked while attempting to kill someone will not have their shot refunded.

    If someone with a Strongman modifier kills Player A who is protected by Bodyguard B, who dies?
    Player A will die, and Bodyguard B will survive.

    Can a mafia team choose not to kill anyone during a night?
    The host can determine this using the Mafia Factional Kill setting. Kills can be mandatory, optional, or disabled altogether.

    The default is No. The mafia factional kill is compulsory. This is done in order to avoid deadlocked games where the town keeps no eliminating and the mafia refuses to submit a kill. If the game has assigned kills, it will be randomized which member of the team is carrying out the kill.

    If there is only one mafia member left in a game without assigned kills, can the mafia factional kill then be blocked and/or tracked?
    No.

    Can the mafia submit a kill for one of their own members?
    No.

    If I kill someone, does their night action, if they have one, still succeed?
    Yes, killing someone doesn't prevent them from performing their night action (unless they investigated someone, in which case they will not receive a report). Refer to the order of operations: All kills happen at the end of the night, and everyone pulls the trigger simultaneously.

    Can individual night actions be proxied on mafia teams?
    No. If the mafia team has a Mafia Roleblocker, for example, and they want to use this role's action, then the player occupying that slot must submit the action themselves.

    If a Lover is shot during the night, while the other Lover is protected that night, does the other Lover still die?
    Yes. It's not possible to prevent a Lover from dying of love sickness.

    If a Bodyguard protects Lover A, while Lover B is shot during that same night, what happens?
    A dies of love sickness and Bodyguard lives.

    If there are any Innocent Childs in the game, are these confirmed in the thread right when the game begins?
    No. Innocent Childs are able to decide themselves when or if they wish to have the Modbot confirm their role and alignment in the thread. Note that this is exclusively a day action and that it can take up to one minute for the Modbot to process the action.

    What results are Alignment Cops, Full Cops and Role Cops given if they investigate a Godfather or a Miller?
    Alignment Cops are told "Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia" for Millers. Full Cops are told "Vanilla Town" for Godfathers and "Mafia Goon" for Millers. Role Cops are told "Godfather" for Godfathers and "Miller" for Millers.

    Can Role Cops tell the difference between a Vanilla Town and Mafia Goon?
    No. They are told "Vanilla" when investigating either of these two roles.

    If I roleblock someone with a Bulletproof Vest, will that nullify the effect of the vest?
    No. Bulletproof Vests are passive modifiers that cannot be blocked from working.

    If I roleblock Masons, Neighbors or Lovers with out of thread communication privileges, can I prevent them from talking at night?
    No.

    If I roleblock a Godfather, will they still be revealed as being town-aligned to Alignment Cops and Full Cops that night?
    Yes.

    You can also quickly vote for someone by clicking on the box with a checkmark icon, which will bring up an alphabetized dropdown containing the names of living players:



    This will insert [V][/V] tags with the name of the player you selected in the dropdown, perfect every time.

    Click the empty checkbox button to insert [UNV][/UNV].
    HOW TO SUBMIT NIGHT ACTIONS

    If you have a night action, simply submit this at night by scrolling to the bottom of the game thread. Here you will find a night action form like this:



    Click the dropdown and select the player whom you wish to use your night action on. You can change it as many times as you wish before the deadline expires.
    HOW TO REQUEST A VOTECOUNT

    Votecounts will appear automatically at various intervals, but you can also call up votecounts yourself by following these steps:

    First, you need to apply to join "Mafia Game Hosts" under Permission Groups.

    Second, once your request has been approved, you will be able to call up votecounts by simply pushing the "Post Votecount" button in the top right corner of any game thread that you'd like an updated votecount for.

    OTHER SPECIAL FEATURES

    VIEWING VOTE HISTORY

    There are three ways to access the vote history for any game.

    1. Click on the "Vote History" button in the top right corner of the game thread:

    2. Click on the "View Vote History" link, which accompanies all votecounts:

    3. Click on Modbot in the top forum menu. This will give you a list of ongoing and completed games:



      Next, simply click on "Vote History" to view all votes for that game.

    Following any of the above three steps will bring you to an overview like this one:



    Click on a Voter's username to view all of the votes by their slot.

    Click on a Target's username to view all of the votes for their slot.

    ISOLATING A PLAYER'S POSTS

    If you wish to read a player's posts in isolation, simply click on "ISO" in the top right corner of one of that player's posts in the relevant thread as illustrated here:



    Alternatively, you can access a player's posts in isolation by clicking on the number next to "Replies:" in the forum lobby.



    Doing so will pull up a window listing the post counts for everyone who has posted in that thread. You access someone's posts in isolation by simply clicking on the number next to "Posts:" for that person.



    The ISO view itself has Quote and Multi-Quote buttons inside it, which will make it very easy to quickly quote a lot of a player's posts for analysis or commentary:


    MULTI-ISOLATING

    If you wish to read not just one player's posts, but you want to ISO multiple players, then click the "Multi ISO" button to the left of "Game Tools" and select the players in question as shown here:


    MULTI-QUOTING WHILE THREAD IS LOCKED

    Note that you can multi-quote posts from even locked game threads. This is useful for when you wish to reread the game and do work during night phases.

    After quoting the relevant posts, you simply open a different, opened thread and press "Go Advanced". Then add the quotes to your post by clicking the prompt below the post area as shown here:



    Now, of course you can't post your work in the game thread while the thread is locked, but you can copy paste and save your work to a local file or the cloud and have it ready to post the very next day phase (if you're still alive, that is).

    BOOKMARKS

    Whenever you open a game thread, you are able to bookmark posts. This is for many players an important tool for keeping track of and remembering vital pieces of information, reads, claims etc.

    Also, note that these bookmarks are saved to your user account, meaning that it eliminates the trouble associated with keeping notes between different computers/devices.

    If you want to bookmark a post, you simply scroll to the post that you want to bookmark and press "Set Bookmark" as shown here:



    This will call up 5 different colored icons (Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, and Black) on the right side of the post in question. You can click any of these icons, which will then prompt you to include a note for the post.

    If you don't want to include a note, you don't have to - just leave it blank. The color coding in itself can be a valuable tool. Maybe you want to use Red bookmarks for posts that you find suspicious, Green bookmarks for posts that you find townie, Black bookmarks for posts containing claims, or whatever system you can think of that will be helpful to you.



    Once this is done, you have now successfully bookmarked a post with a certain color and maybe even a note. If you wish to remove the bookmark again, click on "Unset Bookmark".

    How do I access bookmarks?

    There are two ways to access your bookmarks.
    1. Inside a game thread, you can access the bookmarks for that specific game by simply right clicking on the "Bookmark" button and opening the link.

      This will bring you to a separate page that is automatically filtered to only show bookmarks from the game thread that you accessed the page from.
    2. You can also access your bookmarks by going to Features in the site's top menu:



      This will bring you to a page where no bookmarks are shown by default. However, you have several filtering options.

      You can filter by Game, by Player and by Color - and all of them at once if you so wish.

      Here's an example of filtering by only red bookmarks in one specific game:



    If you want to be taken directly to one of your bookmarked posts, you just click the post number.

    How do I quote bookmarks?

    You can also multi-quote bookmarked posts by clicking the little "+" button seen above on the far right side of each bookmark.

    Once you have multi-quoted all the bookmarked posts that you want to quote, you will then have to go to the game thread in which you wish to quote the bookmarked posts.

    Here you have two ways of quoting the posts.

    1. Click on "Reply With Quote" on another post as shown here:



      You will then probably want to delete the last post quoted in the reply box, but otherwise you should be good to go.
    2. Or you can do the more smooth option and click the "Reply To Thread" button at the top and bottom of the game thread - as shown here:



      By doing this you will open up a reply box containing only your multi-quoted bookmarked posts.

    How often do you see any site copying articles from another? I almost never. I think I prefer it like that actually.
    Technically Mafia University articles do have to go through a somewhat brief editing process before being posted, for which I believe @Voxxicus is currently in charge of!!!!

    Most sites don't copy stuff from other places at all, with the most prevalent thing shared tending to be stuff like setups!!

    Mafia chats perhaps, though anyone can join them after the game ends... same with spec chat!!

    But yes, for spec chat it has discussion of overlapping games of whatever champs games are currently ongoing, which means it's not uncommon for there to be three or four games being discussed simultaneously at points!!!

    WHAT THE $%#! DOES "WTF" MEAN?

    Are you not familiar with some of the terminology used by the other players? Maybe this will help you: TERMINOLOGY EXPLANATIONS.
    MAFIA GAME RULES
    Rules may vary from community to community, so we highly advise you to carefully read these rules.

    • Only post/talk about the game in this thread. Don't PM other players, unless you are mafia and wish to talk with your teammates. Also, don't post anything about the game in other threads or on other forums.
    • Don't try to use the form of your role PM. So a screenshot of your role PM would be cheating.
    • You are not allowed to change your avatar, location or any other profile info during game in any way that could be construed as hinting at your role.
    • This is a game of lying. Players are expected to lie. No statement or promise a player makes within the game has any force outside the game. As an example, a bet offered in a game is not something you can collect if you win.
    • If we believe you to be bending the rules intentionally in a way that clearly goes against the spirit of the rules and the game, then that would also be grounds for modkill.
    • If you have any questions about rules, send a PM to your host. Avoid asking questions to the host in the thread.
    • Don't ever refer to private communications with the Game Host.
    • If you should ever require a replacement, PM Lissa and stop posting in the thread.
    • No hydra'ing / multi-accounting is allowed. Do not share your account with anyone else.
    • You are not allowed to reference the post-game voting during the game. I.e. you cannot post "if you lynch me, you're not getting my vote after the game" or anything like that.
    • Treat your fellow players with respect. Hostility will not be tolerated.


    Refer to this post for the complete, standard ruleset for mafia games.



    I will repeat this particular rule once more in big letters to make sure you understand:

    DO NOT EVER REFERENCE THIS GAME OUTSIDE OF THIS GAME THREAD. YOU SHOULD NOT BE TALKING ABOUT THIS GAME WHATSOEVER ON YOUR HOME SITE. IF PEOPLE ASK YOU QUESTIONS, TELL THEM YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT THE GAME AND LINK THEM TO THIS THREAD.
    MINIMUM ACTIVITY REQUIREMENTS
    All players are required to make a minimum of 10 posts per game day.

    The game hosts and tournament organizers reserve all rights to immediately sub out any player not meeting this requirement, regardless of whether or not the player has met the requirement on previous days. Similarly, if players are only meeting this requirement by spamming and/or posting in the last hour of the day, that and similar circumstances would also be cause for substitution.

    If players aren't posting, the tournament organizers will always first try to prod the players in question.

    SUBSTITUTION PROCEDURE
    If your representative needs to sub out during a QUALIFIER, your community's backup will take their place, assuming 1) you've elected one, 2) they've registered a user on Mafia Universe, and 3) that I'm able to get a hold of them within a reasonable amount of time (i.e. with enough time left in the current phase for the sub to work with).

    If I can't get a hold of your backup, I will give the spot to a representative from a community that joined the series late - or failing that, a backup from one of the larger communities.

    If your representative needs to sub out during a SEMIFINAL or FINALE game, your community's backup will NOT take their place. Instead the next person who was in line to receive a semifinal or finale spot will take their place.
    DISCLAIMER ALERT
    The beauty of the Mafia Championship is that it brings communities closer together, and it provides an opportunity for players to learn new playstyles, metas and mechanics. And hopefully make new friends as well.

    All that being said, the games can also very quickly become overwhelming and frustrating since you probably won't be able to play completely in the same way that you're used to. You don't necessarily need to adapt, but you will probably need to accept that some of the other players will have a different approach to the game than you.

    We hope that you will embrace this as part of the experience. It's easy to grow frustrated with people when you don't know them (imagine how you would have felt playing with your friends on your home site if you didn't know any of them when you played your first game together), so a huge part of playing in the Championship is also getting to know the other players in some way.

    Specifically, the seasons have taught us that you should be prepared for:
    • A very high level of activity. On average, there will be 500-600 posts per 24 hours during the early stages of the game in qualifier games, and likely more in semifinal/finale games. This is a melting pot of dedicated and enthusiastic players all gathered in one game.
    • You will likely face very different posting styles: Some will post walls of texts with many quotes, some will post a ton of one-liners, and some people will be very keen to interact in real-time in the thread (using the thread as a chat rather than a thread you pop into a few times a day).
    • A flurry of activity towards the end of the day. This means that if you check out 5 hours before the day ends, you should not be surprised to return the next day to see that the wagons were changed multiple times. If you want your vote to count, be careful to not agree to a game where you can never be around for EOD.
    • A few players in your game will probably have played with each other before. This has become impossible to prevent as increasingly many players have played on Mafia Universe.
    • We do not condone abusive remarks and we have banned several communities from participating based on this before, but each season features dozens of new communities, so there is always a slight risk that you might encounter abusive players. If you do, please report them and we'll take care of it.


    Past seasons have shown that players get more enjoyment out of the games when they make connections with the other players, so we highly encourage you to join our Discord server either before or after the game.

    Finally, we encourage you to at least skim some of the season 7 games to get a sense of how the games usually play out: https://www.mafiauniverse.com/forums...nship-Season-7

I did it because I knew I would die, it was allowed as long as I was a living player in the game (which I was), and I could communicate my new reads to the people still alive. I don't want this to be an acceptable play on MU.

    I also think likes makes players lazy. Instead of someone posting "I agree" they can just click the like button which takes away an element of discussion and liking posts is a lot less readable and game-relevant than people writing out why they agree with someone or even just saying that they agree.
    The bolded would 100% happen here, and was what I was vaguely referencing earlier!!

    That being said, allowing it to be enabled in certain subforums could be cool, considering the interest the EM community has and possibly other partner communities!!!

    I'm personally shrug about having it as Likes versus Thanks; being already quite accustomed to the Thanks system it operates as pretty much the same way? Also probably wouldn't use it in a normal game for reasons of avoiding tryhards abusing it, but I could see working it into a setup which takes that into account, maybe!!

    Making them a feature that is host-enabled could be neat, for people who want that to be a feature in their games!!!! However, I'm not entirely sure how mechanically viable that is though in vBulletin? Given how Thanks currently operate, they're thread/subforum/forum bound and not something that can usually be interacted with from the user-end, so it may be something that Makaze would have to do manually, or have it bound to a specific subforum!!

    It does seem like the type of feature where you'd have someone create an integrity issue with sooner or later though, in my experience; people do that with the weirdest things, hence why Thanks is turned off in game threads!!!

    I believe that the interpretation was to only check-in if necessary.
    Backups don't necessarily have to check in, but it does help to increase overall hype, and also make it easier for you to be reached if you're needed as a sub!!!!!

    Various notes:

    Yes, the deadline has been mildly extended for those communities who have not yet decided on someone to send, as there are still a few slots left!! That applies to communities which haven't really responded yet as well - or those that may have changed their minds!!!

    Speaking of which...

    The first game of champs will not be happening on May 10th, but will likely be happening on May 17th!! Stay tuned next week for schedules to be posted, probably later in the week - if you haven't already, make sure to do your scheduling forms ASAP so your preferences will be taken into account and scheduling can happen!!!!


    If you're still considering what to write for your bio, take some time if you need to; those aren't quite as time-sensitive as the scheduling forms since as long as you have them in before your game starts, you're solid!!! Also don't panic if you want to change something in your bio before it starts, as you can send in an updated version before your game starts!! Just preferred if you don't do this really frequently thanks!!!

    This post was made primarily to include this brag: Canucks.com has had a finalist 4 out of 6 years we've been invited.
    A few stats have been kept, though they're not quite up to date from last season I believe!!!

    However if I'm reading this correctly, FFR still holds having sent the most finalists, minus season 1 (though I think they may have had a finalist that season too!!)

    Here's the post.

    And I don't believe I'm missing the point. I do get that your post specifically called out that one post of mine. But your only other mention of me was on your final reads list saying "Takes have been very uninspiring, doesn't overly feel like he's thinking about the game in an actual solving manner!!". Which feels like your not taking into account the Marshall read or the Igno read, which I even later talked about with DkKoba and GG. The Igno one is my biggest ? on your evaluation of me. What do you think about what I've posted about Igno?
    Okay, and...? Is that post not you calling out DkKoba for calling out Marshal's posts, and then voting you instead? Still not seeing where you had actually suspected Marshal!!!

    No I have not been taking in account any Marshal read, given that you've barely spoken about them besides a passing take, from what I've seen!! Similar to ignoramus, where you've mentioned having the pings and questioned townreads that others have had on them, which... is that supposed to be particularly towny? Because if so, I'm not seeing it!!

    I'd appreciate it if anyone else has takes here, however!!!!
    ">Votes the only other person saying they're suspicious of them."

    I'm clearly saying I'm suspicious of Marshall there.

    And what I'm saying with the Igno reads like I've said before is that is weird that I've mentioned Igno a good bit going against a town read on them, you mention yourself that you don't see what others are seeing, and then you says my reads are uninspiring and it doesn't look like I'm solving. At least in my mind these seem incongruable with each other, especially when you have no mention of it.
    You've mentioned the suspicion, but what about Marshal/Ignoramus are you actually suspicious about, unless it's just the brief agreeing with GH (while also suspecting Frog) and nothing else for ignoramus? Are you actually interested in pushing those people or explaining/discussing those reads, or are you just putting the "spicy" takes out there to make it look like you're thinking, because it feels more like the latter!!!

    Not really feeling like I'm getting anywhere with this; if you want to talk about why you actually suspect Marshal/other stuff, go for it!!!

    Actually leaving now, back later this weekend!!!!

    Regarding Visor... I would say somewhat towny?

    Instead of explaining why, I'll say that I think a lot of the pocketing-feels is because a lot of Visor's posting is also tailored directly towards those he's responding to in a very explicit manner? For instance, P#113 where he's just straight up yeah GH, let's be town hype buddies!!!! Which is like, ?!?! to me as someone who just, can't do that?! Also part of it is stuff like him being conciliatory towards DkKoba, which is nice but is it just because I said what I had said earlier? Which is also why it somewhat felt like his read on DkKoba was one of the more townier moments, if that makes sense!!!

    However, it does make sense when considering the approach Visor generally has to the game, in the quickly-re-evalating manner/methodology which works that well!!

    Anyways, if I had to tier him, it would be under the tier with GH in it, probably!!!

    i dont get it

    why do you think this

    is it because i am replying to a lot of what you are saying?

    how do you reconcile that with the read i gave on you earlier?
    Possibly? But also not really because this isn't necessarily alignment-indicative; I feel like I tend to get that sense with you a lot of the time in general (and also outside of games too occasionally) such as that exchange we had in Zelda (?) where we were discussing self-meta or something!! Also pretty sure it's happened in other game(s) too, at Australian times when other people weren't really around!!

    Maybe it's because of your general friendly/familiar-sounding demeanor? But other people can also be friendly (and dare I say, more friendly), and I don't get that sense from everyone else where this is very Visor-specific, so...

    As to how I'm reconciling that with the earlier read, I'm not really because that seemed more of an idle thought than an actual read; may or may not change if it actually is, probably not!!!

    Also yes of course I plan out my naps/sleeping in general, doesn't everyone? When most people sleep literally every night and usually use alarm clocks to wake up, and stuff like that!!!!

    It's been said multiple times at this point, but Frog and DkKoba so far look the worst. Not said though is that I think it's the lack of consistency of play that makes it as scummy as it is. If Frog had followed up after my response, I think that would look a lot better for them, instead of saying nothing, especially since as noted, my response was fairly weak. DkKoba talks about want to see the thread more active when they check in tomorrow, and now they're no where to be seen.

    GH on the other hand following up their entrance of actually making game reads made another post today following up on some of the interactions he had looks really good, especially doing it so quick in a game this long imo.

    In a normal game, I'd say there's a 100% chance that there's a wolf in the group of people agreeing with GH's read on Frog with how everyone jumped on to it. With this game, I'm not so sure it's necessarily that likely. But, if there was a wolf in there, I'd pick Marshall first. They've posted multiple times since Frog's howdy argument and only now takes a stance on it. That said I do like their post against DkKoba and their post about dying n1 if DkKoba flips wolf. So not a full wolf read there, but they'd be 3rd on my scummy reads after Frog and DkKoba.
    So you've actually somewhat outlined it in the post yourself: essentially, the re-iterating of the suspicion on DkKoba/Frog which had already been somewhat-extensively elaborated upon by multiple others previously, but in a way which feels like it more along the lines of posting to post the take!!!!

    The Marshal take was one which I did not think was an actual Suspicion which you had, from the wording you had in the bolded, where you had expressed that it was basically only if there was mafia agreeing with GH's Frog read, and you'd also expressed liking some of their stuff? So... how much of that is an actual suspicion, for you?

    Also, pretty sure you didn't mention ignoramus in this post at all, which... ?


    The comment there on Marshall is a light scumread, which should have been evident from some of my other posts. And you're right, the Igno read wasn't in that one post, it was in the very next one. Both of these are the problem I have with how you seem to be reading me. Right now, it looks like you picked that one post of mine, and decided to call it scum, and haven't taken in any of my other posts, not even the one right after it apparently.
    To which other posts are you referring?

    I feel like you're missing my point, which is that that was the initial post where you put down several actual thoughts versus what seemed like passing/light thoughts previously; that in and of itself is what I find concerning, when [see the above[!!!!!

    Interesting; I had mixed thoughts on that post which... essentially didn't come out to much either!!

    In that, it felt like it was a bit overblown to come out to nothing because it was something that does not feel like it would have been elaborated upon if GH hadn't been around regardless of alignment, which I'm also assuming GH would know as well, hence not really worth mentioning!!!

    Was there any particular reason why you thought GH specifically would v read you for that, anyways?
    cause he was the only one around and you are avoiding giving reads on me ya coward

    idk, i played that $%#! up a bit for fun and gh probably knew i did too and just did the robinhoodshrug.gif and loled at it.

    but there was a chance he was like wow you bothered to write all these words thats villagery or wow you wrote all those words to come to nothing a wolf wouldnt do that (which are both things ive seen get posted a decent bit over time on mu)
    Yeah well I was going to go take a nap or something but, more mafia words hype!!!!!!!!!!!!! But fine, I'll pull up your ISO and make actual thoughts now then!!!!!

    Definitely doesn't help that it feels like you're trying to pocket me most of the time whenever we're real-timing, just saying!!

    Hmm, I guess so? Felt like it was obvious to the point of not needing to be said that you were doing it for him/because he was around though, but that's beside the point I suppose!!!

    ara is a slight downturn of the side of your mouth :/
    For what it's worth, regarding checklisty I 100% intended to come in, give catchup takes, then take off for a month or so; decided to stick around when you/GH/show up!!!!

    Wait, you mean you don't intend do everything in life in a very particular/organized/scheduled manner, and then inevitably have everything go off the rails anyway?
    i love schedules

    i like to wave at them as they go by
    If I didn't plan things out, I would get literally nothing done all the time; this way I usually get stuff done half the time at least, when I don't get distracted by other stuff!!!!

    The only reason I'm here anyway is because I really want to play mafia but can't get in a normal game or literally nothing else would get done, which would not be ideal!!!

    That's pretty accurate. Though I can also be uninvested as town too, and on rare occasions actually put forth the effort as wolf.
