I should add that while imgay almost always posts junk I feel he does less so when town. When he's town he seems to have some opinions and will lay down some votes, never justified but they're there. This just presence because he's in a game and I guess he thought he had something to say whether or not it was on the subject at hand.

There's definitely a lot of players like that. Friction and imgay are the two that come to mind and personally I feel they come off worse. Tomm's given some opinions and has a seemingly serious vote on Gulag.

I agree at least partly wrt Friction but I think he's new, right? Not gonna go after him on d1. imgay reads almost exactly the same to me in every game I've seen him in and I can't get a bead on him.

It's the meta I've come up with after the games we've been in. There's a few players in the community that pretty much just poo poo-post. It's a valid strategy because, as Leatherman notes, it's really hard to get a bead on them. For me the one I can never figure out is CPig. You're somewhat like gulag in that you seem to have more of a focus when you're town. You'll vote and you'll change that vote, I'm never really sure why, you never say, but that's not apparent here. Maybe it's because you have nothing to hide when you're town so you have more obvious opinions?

I don't want you take that as an insult. It's your way of playing and it works really well for you. I just think that this time you've rolled scum. The fact that your reply to getting some suspicion is just asking why we think that instead of acting upon some of the noted behavior that makes us suspicious adds to it.

Trasson may be new, but he's definitely my strongest Scum read.

If the d1 newbie pass absolutely must be honored, I will settle for lynching King Burgundy.
In past games with KB (where he was Town), he was a player that I often found engaged, helpful, and whose opinions I found myself nodding along with and seeing where he was coming from easily. In this game, in contrast, he has posted numerous monosyllabic or single-smilie-only posts, non-game related chatter, and these two posts that ping my Scumdar:

King Burgundy posted:

I often vote for even less of a reason on D1. But this wasn't a joke vote. Her vote for Cog seems wrong to me, and her posts after it didn't help things.

Two possibilities I see here. One, you are just wrong, or Two, you are scum and after seeing my gut read performance on Rarity in our last game together you are scared of my ability to catch scum and want me gone. ;)

I should point out, that that gut read vote on Rarity was based on almost nothing, just my own read of her tone and meta. So you saying my vote on Anarc was too easy also rings false. :shrug:

King Burgundy posted:

:shrug: Just weighing the possibilities. You saw me vote for seemingly "less" in our last game played together. Just strikes me as weird that you used that reason for voting me/disbelieving me.

Especially having reread just now and seeing you seemingly agree that she was being scummy. Or am I misrepresenting you?

Anyway, be sure to update your "meta" of me after this game. :)
These are self-excusing wishy-washy posts, and the shrugs and smilies emoticons are awkward in that they detract from any sense of conviction or forcefulness. KB is doubling down on a bad vote so apologetically and softly trying to also throw shade toward Asiina for criticizing it... it's Scummy. The rest of his posts are pure garbage, and that's Scummy too.

His first relevant post that contains any kind of content that could be related to the game is... day 3.

Ok, I said, I'll look at a different game. I went back and found a completed game with imgay in it. Gnome mafia.

http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3757455&userid=210152&perpage=40&pagenumber=1

In both these games, imgay is town, and he posts roughly the same amount of "content" as we're seeing in this game. Here he posts at least one town read and a couple of things relevant to the immediate discussion. The only point I'd concede is that he hasn't voted here yet, but that doesn't seem too far away from the reality. I haven't been able to dig up a scum game of his for comparison, but a quick check makes your case feel flimsy.

I'd be interested to see you substantiate it further, because something about it comes off as going after an easy target.

I started to write a case on my vote target here, but I have to go, so I just leave you with my "I don't really think your meta argument holds up to scrutiny" post.

I wasn't in either of those games and I only read the threads of games I play because that is A LOT of effort. But look I joined him in the World of Warcraft game, we were both in the Trojan Soldiers thread, the original Gnomefia, and Ecco's Misery of Madriu. I think I had replaced into the majority of those games and I think for a couple he was already dead but you can a difference in style anyway.

In Warcraft he stay son point voting Kash and gives reasons for his later votes. He was town. In Troy he was laying down votes giving one sentence opinions and he was town. In Gnomefia he's giving opinions and talking properly about the game and he was town. And in Madriu he does the same thing. He's not doing either of those things here. At all.

Funnily enough he writes in Madriu in response to me:

"I don't understand why you think I am poo poo posting. I've only mentioned things that I thought were scummy and acted accordingly at that time. I've hard claimed town, but you seem more then content to lynch me for some reason. You quoted me for saying that when I was catching up in this thread that a found a certain post scummy, then act like I immediately voted someone else for no reason. I quoted the post that made me have my vote at the time and feel like your removing context, and calling it noise is being pretty lovely."

So maybe we just have a thing imgay. Who knows?

I usually wait until page 16 or so for higher accuracy, but I am bored right now, so behold:

D1 LumpenList

After doing the whole re-read and organizing it, I think it's pretty good actually.
As usual, I highly encourage EVERYONE to post their own version. It you're Town it will be very helpful to Town, it will help you analyze the game as you consider rankings by re-reading through each person's posts, and your honest reads will be on the record even if you die. If you are Scum and try to craft a List, it will inevitably expose you and your scumbuddies, so that'd help too, thanks.

I'm still good with my imgay vote. I'd vote Friction otherwise. I also have feelings about Metos but I think it's because he seems to have the worst way of phrasing his sentences. I have to re-read them several times to get what he's saying is not a straight up scum slip.

Foo was initially on my list but he was altogether a lurker execution. It's less so of that since he's begun to post. I have to give the roster another look over though initially I was null leaning town/leaning town on several people. But I have guests tonight. I should be back for deadline. I'll be back if not to write more to at least to check up on the action and be useful if I can be.

1) Tomm, for reasons discussed. Signal to noise ratio is super low.

3) GulagDolls, for pushing the massclaim idea really, really hard after even Cog had decided to drop it for the time being. Not caring about keeping power roles around and discounting negatives doesn't make sense to me from a Town perspective because they can help with finding scum and preventing nightkills. I get that power roles are ancillary to actual post analysis, and that's fine, but I think it's bad play to completely discount them, especially when mislynching makes a PR disappear for good (and this massclaim idea, if scum claim power roles, would certainly lead to mislynches).

3) Foo, for dropping an early vote and then showing back up after being called out by a couple people to make exactly 9 more posts before leaving again. It feels to me like specifically posting to try and avoid hated tomorrow. This one's subject to change if he's back and active for deadline.

I don't generally like giving out lists of who I think is town, because I feel like it makes targeting easier for the scumteam.

Flying Leatherman - Low volume of posts.

Flying Leatherman posted:

I'm sorry I disappeared! I had some personal stuff come up last night. I know, no excuses.

After doing some light filtering, Tomm has a ton of posts that don't say anything at all and I'm putting my vote there today. He's not the only one, but there's some seriously low signal to noise ratio when you look at the number of posts.

I like this post of Trasson's and agree. I thought that Friction's post - the one that he's referencing there - was bad.

We should not massclaim if that's still being discussed.

##vote Tommunist

Is scummy. It
a.) doesnít line up with reality. If you think frictions post is bad, why isnít your vote on him? "A scummy post" feels like a better argument than "lurking"
b.) No one noticed he was gone or called him out on it, not in a significant manner, feels like the type of post you make when you're worried someone thinks you're not doing enough.

Friction.123 - Could be newbie town, but the eagerness to jump on a wagon, any wagon, is worrying. It also felt like voting on me was jumping on a wagon of opportunity.

Also make note of the connection between him and FL, if either flips scum, the other is likely mafia, given the way FL soft accused him and then voted for someone else.

Metos - Mafia, based on

Metos posted:

Kashuno seems like a cool town guy.
Thecog seems alright if that's who was starting the idea of the massclaim, I forget if it was him or Gulagdolls and I think its Gulag I don't like as they seem keen to just kill off all our power roles.
I wanna hear more from Captain Foo and Flying Leatherman, Foo because his posts say nothing and I think he's a baddie, but also Flying Leatherman has a total of 3 posts, 2 since the game started (both of which were help aimed at me which I appreciate but also doesn't say much)
Trasson I'm leaning towards baddie but not 100% yet.

##Vote Captain Foo, happy to move it to Gulagdolls when I wake up if that's the direction we're going as they're my second choice.
1.) Spurious reasoning about gulag that's not actually substantiated with anything.
2.) Why do you vote for a lurker when you have two people you think are mafia? Feels like a "safe" vote. Especially the "I'm happy to switch to X, if there's a wagon building!"
3.) Saying "I think X" is mafia but also arguing they've posted like nothing is... stretching, it feels like a poor vote justification.

I don't know who's new or not because this is my second game here, to me, everyone is new! Well, except for the people I played with last game. Like FL.

In general, scum arent going to be leading cases, because that's scary and they you have to deal with the backlash and coming up with excuses is so much harder than jumping on a bandwagon!

As to FL, he has a weird feel this game. He had a weird feel last game, where he was cult leader.

I feel like townies should hunt mafia. Finding town is an useful tool, but I generally prefer to post my scum reads, so town don't know who they should knock out. That way if scum take out someone I totally thought was shady but not shady enough to merit an accusation, I'm saved a day of potentially targeting the wrong person. Me saying "I think X, Y and Z" are scum isn't me saying "They're the only people I'm suspicious of", they're the people I'm *most* suspicious of. This also helps because it doesn't tell scum who's "safe" to build a case on, remember, scum don't see the same way town does.

The TLDR is I don't mind giving scum-lists, I don't usually give out my full town reads. It doesn't mean I don't ever do it, its just not my preference.

Two main reasons, both weak. I know I am a towny (aren't we all?), so assuming the mafia know each other anyone bandwagoning against me is mildly suspicious. Add to that the fact he made three posts all very lightly casting blame in my direction hoping that wagon would take off full steam and I already feel weird about him.

Second, low post count in the early parts of the day, which I don't think is a good reason by itself but combined with above is enough for me, personally, to be suspicious of him.

Ok, Chart explanation... The "Suspectedness" is the number of people who have expressed a willingness to lynch the person. The rest of the chart is the expressed lynch preferences of each person. The colors of their expressed preference match the overall suspectedness of the mentioned person. So Captain Foo and GulagDolls currently have 3 people who "would vote" them. Flying Leatherman has expressed a willingness to vote 2 "reds" and an "orange", which may indicate he's bandwagoning. I dunno, let's fill up the chart and see if useful patterns emerge once the game is over and we know who was who.

As to FL, he has a weird feel this game. He had a weird feel last game, where he was cult leader.


Why the excuse? Why Tomm instead of friction? Why is having lots of posts with little content bad, when in content they average out to about the same level as say imgay? What makes one "low content" poster a better target than another? Can you point at specific posts that are scummy?
Your points, in order:

Those are the only two games we've been in together :\ If you want to make a meta case, go read my completed games and see if they have a "weird feel" to you too. Trying to base an alignment call off of only one game is really sketchy and I don't like that you're trying to do it.

What excuse?

I didn't call friction scummy, and it seems like you're trying to say I did. I think the post I referenced is Bad and Wrong, but contrariwise I think he's genuine on massclaim discussion and also I'm not lynching a new guy D1. One post does not a comprehensive read make; note he didn't even make my top 3 above.

Again, signal to noise. Look at the post count back on last page. If you drop double the posts but have the same amount of content, that's what I'm talking about when I say signal to noise. It lets people hide behind the facade of activity without contributing. I think this answers why I prioritized him over other players as well, so forgive me for not covering that separately.

The aggregate is why I read him as scum. There are a ton of meaningless posts. Go look at his filter and tell me that it's full of content.

Its deliberately not a meta read, if it were a meta read, I'd call out posts and point at specifics, its a gut judgement. There's not enough content for me to make a meta read.

If you think it was a bad post, but not scummy, why did you feel compelled to point it out?

I like your answers so far actually. How do you feel about 100YrsofAttitude?
