I've been reading through the Wandering Samurai very recently to get the flow of things, and I can confirm that Tolly is also a newbie.

Excuse me, but it seems like you're referring to a previous "intentional formatting mistake"... I'm confused, can you do a kind favor and go back and quote it?

Having entirely caught up to the thread, I think I have two questions:
1) Are posting restrictions an actual thing that is done in SA mafia, or is that still some extended jokephase?
2) What's OMGUS?

I think so on 1 but I'm not sure how common they are.

But an OMGUS is 'oh my god you suck', a scumtell where a player immediately votes someone for the sole reason of being voted by said person. People seem to let it slide a lot on SA but I think it can be an effective way of finding people who are very uncomfortable being voted, see: scum.

This is exactly why my vote on mmt ISN'T an OMGUS.

I think she really looks poorly by spouting out inaccurate information on my play so she could tag on to my rising heat

Lumpen posted:

Excuse me Tolly, but I just have to point out that you dodged my question about your empty-quote post before this one, and I know you were around at that time so I'm afraid I'm going to have to hold that against you. I'm going to keep my vote on you based on your lurky lack of response and engagement.

Thanks for the update!

Sorry about that, while I appreciate what you're doing, I'm not interested in engaging in a line of question you don't believe in. I just feel like it wouldn't be productive for either one of us.

I think what you posted later means you're writing in this way because you have to, and that also changes things a lot.

Hmm to be honest I kind of feel like Lumpen is the person you'd want to be asking about lists! I tend to go more for rambly paragraphs

No, I meant you. Maybe not lists exactly, but branching thoughts. A, B, C etc.

You've avoided posting any content this game. You've said hi, and asked about lists. There is enough going on that you could have actual opinions. You don't.

Those are some interesting takes DGK. I don't agree with them though. Even though there may be some truth to the letter here, I haven't done much, I don't think the spirit of what you're saying is true.

This is a rather unlikely theory, but I reckoned I'd throw it out there: This looks like it miiiiiight be a posting restriction related to/inspired by "This doesn't look like anything to me".

I'd ask if this is a joke but you seem as serious as a heart attack. Why should someone in their second game have 'actual opinions' a day 1 that's been slow as hell? This coming right after MMT starts questioning them too, now that I think about it.

It is a thing multiple of us will simply be aware about, particularly those people that have just been in a game with her (or, as in my case, have just been busy reading it).

Hi this is my second game too. My first was 4 years ago. Im just slightly more informed because ive been reading Mafia games for fun again for the last few months.

Funny enough my router reset and ate a post i was making so I'll leave the gist of it here.
You could say KB is lurking by your current standards and everyone knows how much he hates lurkers. The game is barely 24 hours old and jokephase usually lasts longer than that. It seems too early to me to vote someone because they havent posted a serious opinion yet.

Read my second post in the thread. Also, fwiw, if you really read my last game, you'd even know why.

That's fair because she said she was new and this is the second game I've seen her in. I assumed this was her second game on SA but I suppose she could have played another one I wasn't aware of. That said she came out firing in Westworld. The core of my point to DKG was that it seemed early in the game to get suspicious on the ground of no content, with a bit of extra skepticism because it targeted a relatively new player.

I'm pretty sure everything I've said is true but I guess my apologies to Tolly if I've misrepresented her.
