Not true, you could hear it growing more pronounced as the recording went on.

why does everyone's tindeck have a way to play it but mine doesn't (at least from my computer)

Yours is an m4a filetype, not an mp3. It may not play if the browser lacks a plugin, I suppose?

See the thing is. Look at all the people getting crazy defensive about this. As if they have something to prove by yelling about how they are just doing this for fun and totally not to get an advantage.

It's okay to do it for fun, but don't let them kid themselves that that's their only reason behind doing it.

Am I saying its the only thing we should focus on? No not at all but its D1 and we legit have NOTHING to work with other than this.

I don't think it's crazy defensive to point out you're attempting to make a case based on following what Asiina suggested we do. She also suggested we play Mafia as well. She even told us in the OP there would be daily gimmicks going on. This is literally part of the game we're playing here and you're straight up refusing to do it:

I am not going to buy into this day gimmick.

I like it because it's keeping me engaged and I'm posting more. I have a bad habit of lurking, but I also have a bad habit of loving musicals, so they're balancing each other out.

I didn't participate, so I have no reason to get defensive, but I still think participation in this is just part and parcel of playing this particular game (as specifically contemplated by the mod and the rules) and it's not a tell one way or the other. Though I also agree that there's not much else to go on during D1,so I guess it's at least *a* data point, but to me it doesn't seem too strong.

I just wanted to bring this back because the narrative here is strong. I particularly like the twist of "We have nothing to work with on this day, day one"

When you analyze the work, you realize the crux of the Jimson persona is his terminal lack of appreciation for fun.

possibly

I do think there's a kernal of truth to the argument. When I played Cookfia I was scum and we worked to make sure we got all the advantages we could, then we won. That doesn't mean hat signing up to a game with that type of gimmick and then immediately making GBS threads on the first person who does it is high tier gameplay though. If you were going to work that angle at least wait a day when you'll have data on more than 1 person.

I like that Jimson making a serious effort at playing Mafia involves making GBS threads on people who're participating in mod-approved and mod-encouraged fun day activities.

Yeah I totally get what you're saying but the same thing can be applied to Jimson's first attack being on somebody who is putting effort in because they were putting effort in. Those are both bad lines of attack.

For the record I don't think jimson is scum, just that this is silly.

Well, is it really any more silly than any other reason we dream up to find someone to vote for day one? I mean, usually it comes down to gut feels or someone being a dick, so at least this way no one gets hated.

I think that'll be less of an issue during subsequent days. There's very little Mafia happening on D1 usually anyway.

So far my reads are all town. People not participating in either events or discussion are going to be the first on my list, too many good games have been destroyed by rampant lurking lately.

Jimson is definitely town though, with an opening move like that.

Kash is pinging me just the smallest bit I guess?

Hey instead of whining about a hypothetical situation that's not happening in this game, maybe do the thing you're saying should be happening?
