Thoughts on Shananananakin: Lurky and lacking in content. I called him out on this problem and was convinced he was newbie scum in Coins of Kerm (1), (2) and he ended up flipping town. I'm a little edgy to lynch him for that reason. Admittedly, the case on him is not because he is suspicious but to make the game more enjoyable by eliminating a lurky player. Still worried about this justification being easily exploitable for scum.

An Addendum: Shanananananananananananakin and Gridlocked are friends in real life and played off each other throughout Kerm (3). Whereas Shananananananananananannanananananananananakin was suspicious as hell, Gridlocked was the most active player in the game and contributed a substantial amount. Gridlocked is certainly not playing that role in this game, and it is making me a little wary.

I admit to being a bit overwhelmed with the larger number of players and the huge amounts of posts, though I know I vomited a lot of words in Krem as you said. Also honestly the lack of someone on Skype to bounce ideas off makes it harder for me then I thought.

There is a big difference to me trying to analyse 10 posts per hour say, or the gigantic rush we get here. I'll try harder for you though QPQ <3

Grids (Bad) Thoughts (please note these have been written over the course of watching videos and eating thus are most likely missing an hours+ worth of content) Hope this formatting works.

CCKeane: CCKeane is defiantly not lurking, he has 2 pages worth of posts alone. Voted for Met on day 1, not 100% sure why because he doesn't quote things and therefore it's hard to see who he is responding to. However he did seem to really want Met dead (1). Voting for Shanakin twice in the space of 15min is a bit odd (2) (3) and he seems to be pushing pretty hard for it, though it appears to be more out of "kill the lurker" then bassed on Shanakins activities. This could be a good or bad policy, I am not sure; can't say I am experienced enough to have a good opinion. The action in and of itself isn't scummy IMO because it does clear the game up a bit, but it could also be seen as jumping on an easy target.

dscruffy1: Scruffy has made one solid content post with some good reasoning as he seeís things. (4) I can understand why he felt I was pushing for metís death, though I thought I made it clear I didnít like the way he knifed a guy because of an argument then started calling anyone who voted for him scum; pretty piratey though now I think of it and ergo points for fitting the games theme. Heís pushing hard on QPQ (5), his only 2 votes so far have both been cast on QPQ. QPQ has been fairly solid in his content and I donít like the ďwhy is PERSONNAME still alive?Ē line that has been done in this game already. Itís a bad line to take IMO as it makes the impression that you are not asking ďWhy should we lynch PERSONNAME?Ē but ďWhy HAVENíT we lynched PERSONNAME?Ē, which is a much harder argument to defend. I think this is Sruffyís 1st (2nd? We are in the HOTS Mafia together too right?) though and I am inclined to say he is a zealous Townie rather than scum.

GulagDolls: Australian good, anime avatar bad. His post on mets stab was what prompted me personally to think about and eventually vote for met. (6) Though at the time it didnít seem like he knew who exactly he was reacting badly too (7)(8). Voted for 100years to break the tie (I think, I was Witchering at the time) and took his/her knife; ergo is now a stabber. This makes me less incline to want to vote for him because he has already said he will stab rather than be lynched. (9) Which is a fine stance, but who wants to get stabbed? Another person who doesnít quote when responding to things thus makes it annoying to gauge responses correctly.

Look Under The Rock: Seems to be a veteran Mafia player? Defended me early on (10), which is nice, but I am not sure if this is because he wants to be nice to the newbie (which ecco declared I am not) or because (as LUTR later declared) it was because Somber was acting out of his apparently usual character. (11) (12) Voted for Ecco when it looked like Ecco was defending Somber (at least that is what I think LUTR thought) (13) (14) Was willing to cause a tie between MCS and Met (15) (16) which either could be that he was trying to force someone else to make a rough vote and look bad or trying to defend Met without looking overly like they were doing so. Not sure why this would be the case though. I could be reading that entirely wrong. Defending met does seem like a thing though (17) but considering met flipped town, it may not have been a bad defence. Though met didnít enjoy being defended (18). Jumped on to Shanakin (20) on the grounds of wanting to remove lurkers; like with my comments on CCKeane I am not sure if this is a good or a bad policy. Later joined the QPQ hate train but was willing to kill the lurker anyway (21) which again I am not sure if it is a good policy lynch or not. Good person to analyse though because they quote lots. Note: I can assure everyone that Shanakin and I take the rules of mafia seriously are not breaking them simply because we are RL buddies (21).

MEDS CURE SCHIZOS: Voted lots voted often at the start, not linking cause it takes up too many :words: in my document and makes it confusing to type. Was quite willing to argue their votes but spent some time calling QPQ bad names. (22) (23). They made a really solid post on why to vote for QPQ, though from my (limited) experience with QPQ I donít agree with some of his points. Great content though (24). MCS has shown that when their life is on the line they are willing to target the person causing the issue (25) (26) (27) (28) (29) That was so many links I lost count. Anyway they are going hard on LUTR though to me it seems more because LUTR decided it was better to cause a tie then let met die, which leads me to believe that MCS is out for revenge at LUTR for putting him in a position where he could easily get lynched. (30) I donít like the ďI donít need a reason.Ē response here. You always need a reason, even a bad one is better than just expecting people to shrug and go with it. I donít think MCS has a knife because if they did he totally would have shanked LUTR by now.

Ixtlilton: Replacement player. Mostly posted responses to people rather than theories. I am going to assume he was fishing for clues, which shows good scumhunting IMO. Has two strong reads but isnít willing to share them; dono why you wouldnít share them though. (31) However has stated that he believes GulagDolls to be Town because of some apparent ďtrollingĒ that I have obviously missed. Called me a Cum Man which is just insulting. (32) :cumpolice:

Opopanax: Voted for met early on (33) without stating directly why, but I am willing to belive it was similar to myself and GulagDolls in that he didnít like the way met used a stab then got crazy defensive. Pointed out mets defensive strategies here which I agree with. (34). Hasnít posted much of note since besides making good on his promise if met flipped town and declaring that met was ďan idiotĒ rather than scum.
I am going to take a break on this now. This has been 40min of reading poo poo and I still have like half the list to go. Please feel free to tear my comments apart. Pintrest Mom to Tremendous Taste to come later.

I got my well deserved prodding message and I am going to attempt an effort at not getting distracted and overwhelemd and posting poo poo and not being a lurky bastard which is unfair to the other players of the game. That being said I've given Quandy my blessing (not that he needs it) to slot in someone more eager to play if I keep it up and he has one handy.

First though is Grid, to hear his delicious tears and also because he's reminding me of those times where he's adding up everyone's points in a game and trying to stifle his smile, but that's kind of hard to be sure about in text form. I'm kinda reading back on the thread and going over people so I'll come back to this question in a bit.

how the gently caress did I do that?


anyway. After a cursory glance I'm not really liking early Ninth Layer.

He does a day one vote count trying to be helpful. This was one of the big things I got in trouble for before as being an obvious scummy behaviour, trying to appear helpful.


He goes after, and votes QPQ for making arguments and accuses him of trying to hard. I'm not really sure that trying to hard really holds up to a bunch of one line opinions about people mostly though.

He basically keeps going after QPQ and most of his posts feel incredibly Facetious to me.

Then he kind of goes a lot quieter, backs away from his earlier positions and seems to go with the flow more.

CCKeane:
He posts a lot. A looot. This is fine. 70% of his posts are flippant throwaway jokes and such to me. there's some advice in there that strikes me as sensible about not wasting all the drat vigs on day one and for people to calm down a bit, and the rest is all trying to vote or convince other people to vote me.

I don't really like the way most of his stuff is filler but I suppose filler is better than not posting. Obviously he's been after me hard but I don't really hold "vote one of the most inactive guys" against him.

The one thing I don't really like is the "why in't this guy dead yet" posts about met, for the same reasons as grid but I don't think there's much to be suspicious of here.

A quick glance over LUTR and I don't see much to worry about there.

Plus I really like this bit he posted:

And yeah, I think having toxic douchebags who intentionally break games and use personal attacks to harangue other players into doing what they want is pretty harmful to general enjoyment of games and I will gladly policy dunk chumps like that regardless of alignment. Sorry not sorry. If you think that makes me scum then idk what to tell you.

All that poo poo posting and stuff at the start of the game really kind of killed my interest and made it hard to follow actual stuff.

Letís do some more!
Grids (Bad) Thoughts 2: Electric Mafi-a-Loo
Pintrest Mom: Stabbed Ecco. (1) Considering the next comment was about his behaviour (2) I am of the opinion that it wasnít one based on Eccos MAFIA content but rather his general behaviour. I know I condemned met for the same thing, but a) Pintrest wasnít participating in the shitslining themselves and b) they got a good hit in so I am happy to forgive them. Hypocritical of me? Yes. But do any of you begrudge Pintrest for a lucky stab, even for off reasons. The next vote was more of the same (3). Posts good advice to everyone.[url=http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3722665&userid=152820#post446131640[ (4)[/url]. Iím not sure if I would have voted for 100years, I away for that whole event apparently but I understand the logic behind this, it looks like 100years was goading Pintrest. (5) I personally would love to say I wouldnít have given into it, but I canít say it with certainty; and Pintrest has already shown a line of voting because of peopleís behaviour. This being said, I believe Pintrest is 100% town; unless he hated Ecco so much to Vig-Bus him day 1. If so then, wow thatís aílota hate.

QuoProQuid: I like QPQ. I have history, if you can call it that, with QPQ. He has been providing a reasonable flow of content and opinions to the thread, and asking good questions. I donít understand why people are giving him so much heat for his obvious decent scumhunting. In fact Iím not going to link individual posts. Instead you can just read all his posts to see him providing good attempts at analysis, opinions and ideas. Also he has prodded me into making these big posts and paying more attention to this game then I had before, and thatís good because I donít want to lurk away not feeling confident in my posts and opinions; and then ever get accepted into another Mafia game again because of a bad record of signing up then not playing. I am pretty sure QPQ is a townie and is trying his best to scum hunt. Ooop I tell a lie, I am going to link a post. I want to take this opportunity to once again remind QPQ that this is a different game to Krem, Shanakin and I are playing by the rules and we will not let the RL BUDDIES status influence our decisions. Also we wonít talk about yall on Skype behind your backs. Cause we totally did that in Krem and I am sure Shanakin got annoyed at it when all he wanted to do was drive tanks. (6)

Shanakin: Hey buddy. Post more. Made the post that I found funny and got met (and others) onto me for voting for TT. (7) I still stand by my day 1 vote by the way. I donít know the little details you guys are looking for to make a ďgoodĒ day 1 vote; but for me any information is good information and Iíd rather vote because of a silly reason then look like a butt and say to someone ďhey sorry I randomly rolled you but Iíd rather some information then no deathsĒ . If this makes me a bad Mafia player please tell me what to look out for on day 1 to see good vote targets because I ainít got poo poo. Apart from that yeah Shanakin hasnít posted much. However knowing him this isnít because he is lurking and looking for opportunity to strike; itís because he feels he doesnít have good content to contribute. However after prodding he has come up with some reads which at least shows to me he is willing to throw some more effort in. [urI=http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3722665&userid=161950#post446184120] (8)[/url] (9) (10) for one know I needed some prodding to get started too, so I donít begrudge him at all.

Somberbrero: Somberbrero also has a low post count. However so far the majority of his posts have been short and to the point votes or opinions. He started off targeting me because of my ďbadĒ day 1 vote. (11) Which I have explained in my comment above. I think he is being diligent in his lurking-hunting as demonstrated. (12) (13) However as pointed out by QPQ (14) he did seem a bit flip-floppy on the subject of MCS before settling into a vote to lynch 100 with no clear indication of why (though I speculate it was to ensure a lynch happened). I want to say Somberbrero is Town because of his diligence; but his lurking and lack of volume in content could be really well played scuming. Being a veteran player (he is right?) means he probably knows how to do both well. I donít yet see any compelling reason to vote for him though.

The Ninth Layer: Ninth really hated QPQ. (15) His justification of ďtrying too hardĒ is a bit rough to me; if QPQ is trying itís because he is hunting in his own way. He kept going pretty hard on him, which I donít think is scummy behaviour but rather belief in his reasons. (16) (17) (18) He also agreed with a number of us that metís stab was a bad stab. (19) And subsequently voted for him with good justification. (20) I feel his ideas are valid and his contribution is valuable; he also softened up on QPQ more which makes me more inclined to listen to him. (21) Also he is sharing so interesting, if deep, theories pulling connections out where he can see them which I think is good scum hunting technique. (22) Like QPQ I am fairly happy to say Ninth is town.

Last one :dance:!
Tremendous Taste: He has a lot of filler content at the start of the game. His vote for met was pretty much the same reasoning as the rest of us who voted for met (23) Which doesnít raise any suspicions for me. The rest of his content though is fairly mundane to me. Some gameplay advice is about the extent of it. (24) (25) (26) I think TT needs more content before I can get a good read because at the moment I am seeing not much of anything. Could be scummy lurking but Iím not inclined to make that call yet because there are a few of us who have low-ish (content) posts.

There I have analysed everyone. Again continue to tear my ideas apart and tell me where I am wrong.

re-answering this as promised. No one really stands out as a great target so I'd probably hold onto it for now. If I had to, Ninth Layer is the one that stands out to me the most so far, as I elaborated earlier but I'd not be confident of it flipping scum.


P.S. sorry for my poor formatting in other posts. Normally I'd edit that kind of thing but I keep thinking in quick reply that they look like actual paragraphs about a point rather than single lines.

Grid, that analysis is helpful to someone like me who has fallen behind in trying to keep up with the game. What does it accomplish, though? You have all that content but haven't done anything with it. You make very few scum calls and you're fencesitting so hard on some of them that it counts as public indecency. After reading that I feel like I have less of an idea as to who you want to dunk than before.
