A decision about mafia

Recommended Posts

Seeing as how I'm getting a ton of heat for my policy of allowing the Social Groups to "police themselves" when it comes to drama within mafia games not on the main board, I've decided to take a firm stance that I unfortunately must extend to all relevant Social Groups (ones that host games).

 

Until further notice, no mafia games are to be played outside of the dedicated main mafia board.  The reason is, I have a usergroup set up that I can restrict people from playing mafia as needed without impacting their ability to partake it other aspects of DM.  This is only in place on the main board due to how sub-boards work and how access controls work on the site.

 

I apologize if this negatively impacts upcoming games, and I am happy to work with those upcoming mods to slot them in on the mafia board queue so that they may run their games more quickly then just being added to the bottom.  I'll use date stamps for game announcements/PMs if needed just in case there are issues.

 

With the control (via usergroups) I can exert on the main board, the hope is that we can re-build a solid & cohesive mafia community again and then perhaps expand it to the Social Groups at some point.  If there are any questions, please let me know.

That... Well, it can't have been an easy decision.

 

Hope it can someday come back here, until then I suppose I'll have to move to the main board to play...

It wasn't, and again - I apologize that this impacts you guys as well.  I also hope that I'll revert this change at some point in the future.  :-)

I don't like this but I understand your reasons. I guess I have missed some conflicts.

Well it was ultimately a bastard game. Shut down in sign ups is about as ultimately bastard as it gets.

This was only phase one mate. Just wait until he starts night killing us in other games.

Maybe Darthe can run it in the main board?

 

Yeah, he did say he was going to do that.  Assuming you guys are cool with doing your points thing via the game on the main board, it sounds pretty seamless.  :-)

I suppose we could do that.

Well it's a real shame to lose our beloved BT games. But hey, there's the side benefit of drawing more activity to the main Mafia board, so maybe that'll help those games run more frequently.

Well, we can just call the games run at the main board BT games every now and then, right? :)

In theory you should still be able to have the sign-up thread here and just move to the Mafia forum when it's ready to start, no?

I'm thinking that could keep it more in the spirit of a BT game vs just a third queue on the main forum.  (And I would argue that there is a bit of a difference; BT sort of passively encourages more experimental game builds.)

I thought about that, and here is what I'm thinking.  You can have signups here, but they also need to be noted on the main board because I'm going to work it into that queue.  There isn't going to be a "BT queue" because that opens up more issues with timing and filling other games, and I don't want that (yet).

 

You can label them "BT Mafia" if you'd like in the thread title or whatever, but they need to have at least linked signups on the main board.

Ok, cool.  I'll weave them into the main queue and then the mafia board queue will contain the official listing of games waiting to be run.....but obv you guys can have whatever you'd like regarding a queue over here as well.  It might be a little annoying for folks as I work the queues into one cohesive list, but then it should be fine from there.

Actually it looks like it's just Darthe's game which is in sign ups now, and then Shad's database mafia on the queue. 

 

There are a couple of other games there, but they are on hold since the hosts are MIA.

DB Mafia has been ready to roll for a while now, but its roster requirement is.... ambitious.  We'll see what happens.

I keep rereading my role PMs for it and giggling at how incredibly bastard it is.

 

Am I a bad person or just a narcissist?

Can I have a preemptive /in on that game? Although TBH you'll probably want to PM me when it's about to start since I check the forums so infrequently these days. I don't have as much free time as during the summer.

The Database game?  Don't worry, I'm going to spam PM the universe for that puppy.  You have no idea how many slots I need to fill.  XD

    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.

    • The educational system in South Africa is the same as in many countries. I want to talk about what kind of educational system is in America. Kindergartens are not very popular in America. Parents prefer that their children study with their nannies or with them at home. Children go to primary school at 5 years. Children graduate from primary school at 11 or 12 years old. Children who are smart and who study for each class one year, finish school at 11 years old. Children who have difficulties with learning, and who repeat their studies in a certain class, finish school at 12 years old. Children go to secondary school at 11 or 12 years old and children finish high school at 14 or 15 years old. A high school has a duration of 3 years. For graduation from school, a student must write a graduation paper with which the college essay writing service www.paperial.com can help and a student must pass exams which belong to different fields: such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and so on. After a student finishes school, he or she can go to college where he or she will study for 2 years or may go to college or university in which he or she will study for 4 years. In order to enter a college in which students study for two years, or to enter a college or university in which students study for 4 years, a student must pass the entrance exams and have a card in which there are good grades received at school. After graduating from a college or university which obliges a student to study for 4 years - a student can enroll in a magistracy and study there for 2 years. In conclusion, a master can study 3–6 years in order to obtain a doctor’s degree.
