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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inb4 Darthe says it was planned this way all along.

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?

That's our Verb.  Always willing to say what the rest of us are thinking :wink:

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

    • 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.

    • "if the number of qualifying candidates is too unwieldy for a single debate, the Democratic National Committee said it’ll hold primary debates on multiple nights if necessary, assigning candidates randomly to the two debates"   That opens up the possibility of a lot of mischief.      " 1 percent support in three national polls or polls of early primary states, or raise money from a minimum of 65,000 donors from 20 states, including at least 200 unique donors per state. "   What polls? Do candidate polls count? Who decides if a state poll is worthy of inclusion? Do polls which have more then a 4.5% magin of error count (many early polls are at or over this level although they are statistically unreliable)? How do you include candidates with one or two percentage support if the margin of error in even the best polls are above 2.5%?
