The debate of whether something is or is not art is simply answered with a more important question: Who cares?

What percentage of games do you think get added to the mafia wiki?

Our system for adding games to the wiki is really bad and it cannot be considered reliable for anything.

For example, I have played in or modded 8 games since coming back, and only 1 has been added to the wiki.

Perhaps give more people editting rights or something, otherwise lets not pretend its an accurate representation of the games played

If only we had a queue to add completed games to the wiki.

unsurprisingly you are not the first person to think this and unsurprisingly the answer is "it's actually way complicated."

Additionally it's worth reminding that it doesn't actually post anything to the wiki, what you see is just the result of elaborate (and very temporary) scripting.

It would be incredibly easy if votefinder kept the master record of completed games instead of the wiki. You could populate the start of the list with a modified version of the current wiki entry.

Technically it already does, but it doesn't actually sort properly for some reason. It also obviously lacks the game's result (or whether the game actually happened at all for the occasional dud that never gets off the ground).

These are easily fixable issues I'd think.

I have made a new chart for everyone to disagree with.

Emotional does not mean hysterical, and calm does not mean boring. Slytherin does not mean evil, and Hufflepuff does not mean dumb. I did it mostly on feel so I can't really put into words what my thought process was.

I only included people I've interacted with/read enough of so if I missed you maybe I'll update it some day.

I promise I like pretty much all of you so if you don't like your spot don't take it personally!

Gulag being barely visible on the map in the calm/serious bucket is a beautiful troll.

I'm having a mafia problem. It seems like I'm doing an ok job picking out the scum, but I get shut out when making cases on them.

Look at the casework that you found compelling in previous games and try to determine why you found them compelling. The best cases, to me, convey the strongest reason for why someone is scum in a very succinct manner. The long, flowery cases get overlooked because people are lazy. You need to capture and persuade your reader in 1-3 short sentences/points.

I also like to use pointed questions at people to try to get them to either review or comment on my case. This will also help you determine the alignment of the players that you prod. It's a give and take though; you can't be the guy who only asks questions of others without putting out his own responses to their questions.

JakeP posted:

Also the more obviously town you are the more likely that town will take your thoughts into consideration, don't be a scummy player and then come out of nowhere with a case and expect people to be swawyed

This is one of the biggest problems with our town players. You have to be able to separate your belief about an unflipped player's alignment from the cases that person makes. You also have to separate your belief of an unflipped player's alignment from every other belief you have about an unflipped player's alignment.

You can definitely say things like:
"I think merk is scum, but his case on JakeP is great. ##vote JakeP."
"I think merk is scum. I think JakeP is scum, but probably not scum with merk. ##vote JakeP."

I agree no one should have guns.

If you want to hunt use a bow and arrow or a crossbow or a sword or a bow that shoots swords.

Most guns used for hunting aren't bad; people are bad. Some of my best memories involve sitting up in a deer stand. Outside of those trips, the shotguns were locked away in a safe.

You know what you call a fat professional athlete? So drat good at his or her job that they don't have to ascribe to your ideas on beauty.

Pablo Sandoval is the best 'fat' major league baseball player. The guy moves quicker than almost everyone else on the field both on offense and defense, but he still gets slammed in the media and by fans for his weight. He's my second favorite MLB player.

Incorrect, Prince Fielder exists.

Prince Fielder is back to amazing form this year, but he's not as athletic as Sandoval. He's great at the plate and that's about as far as his talents go - the rest of the time he's stuck at first base.

Miguel Cabrera would like a word with you.

I think kind of the same thing about Miguel Cabrera, although he did do well outside of being chained to first base.
