You can now consider it a serious vote for Jimson instead though, since as onset has pointed out, he hasn't even spoken yet.

I 100% agree with you. I've never been in a game where voting D1 Lurker gleaned any sort of useful information.

on the other hand, D1 is one of the least costly times to get no info from the lunch.

the main advantage to hunting down lurkers though isn't so much in actually lunching them, but in making the threat real enough that people feel compelled to try and post more. Especially scum who are lurking cause they feel awkward.

Anyway, later I will gladly move my hijacked vote back to Jimmy where it belongs, cause who would sign up for this game and then not wanna push the button?

I actually agree in a way that it is freaking me out that no one else besides Jimmy was being seriously cased at all, but I don't think its Yami

pushing Yami is a scummier push than Jimmy imo. "Jimmy not pushing the button and being cagey about not pushing the button" is a decent thing to case him over. "Yami bothering to make the only good case in the game so far" however, is a weird thing to call him out on.

It isn't decent to case someone over whether or not they push button. Button doesn't seem to have any impact on alignment.

We have a player in the game (onset) who can literally make Jimmy push button, and case should evaporate. It's an empty case, not designed to catch scum.

that's not entirely what the case is though. Like yeah it started out just poking him about it but he also reacted with those weird justifications and sounded all waffly all "oh well I don't know if it's more scummy to not hit the button or to actually hit the button"

calling the first case in the game out just sounds like scum who couldn't even make any case till someone else made one so they could point at it and call it bad

If I decide to end the day without having used my thing, which I might, it will be in full knowledge of that. Don't just assume the day-cop will be happening today.

wtf for someone all "if you don't push the button you are passing up this small chance of possibly becoming cop" you sure are accepting the chance of possibly becoming dead before you can use it

and it's actually a DAY cop? why the hell would you not use it especially after you were already prancing around all "ooh look at me I got a cop"

Thinking about Dancer holding off on the day cop it strikes me as suboptimal play but not a scum tell, since I think scum could just easily use the command to cop someone they know is town, then say "oh yeah I got a town result" and it would be true and non-controversial.

yeah I don't wanna vote him or anything, I just want him to use the freakin daycop

Toalpaz posted:

What a scum interaction between DB and Onset. Both posted to caution away from button pushing... as if they don't want town to inviggin themselves. Both don't push button.... as if they're not able to.

jimmydalad posted:

So right now I'm being swallowed up by Final Fantasy XIV and that's sort of taking time that I probably should have put into this game.

I'm not really getting the whole "why join this game if you aren't going to push the button?" narrative that's going on. Is it strange that I'm not compelled to push a button we've been told not to push? :v:

Then again, I could just be being weird about that.

yes, you are being weird about it!

there's been a clear established pattern of everyone getting some prize when they push the button for the first time. At least before Dancer was right, why not see if you get a daycop or something else cool?

The case on jimmy was related to posting and statements about button pushing and not, regardless of will, whether or not jimmy pushed the button. Forcing jimmydalad to do it doesn't resolve that issue at all, what?

yeah the whole thing is silly, much like whatshisface voting for me, but I will try and be nice to the newbie for now

I think the push on Yami is the scummiest thing going today, so I would most like to lunch Toal or Sal. Toal is pushing it way harder and I agree with that last Yami post where Toal seems to be willfully missing the points Yami's actually made, so Toal is looking like the scummier of the two again. But I'll leave my vote on Sal for now so he's not forgotten - getting right in on Toal's dodgy case while also shoving all the responsibility off on Toal (oh I'll trust Toal's judgement!) kinda smells fishy to me.

And Sal backing off it so soon might be cause he confused Jimmy and Jimson... or it could be a handy excuse to bail once he saw I was gonna make a big stink about it. I do distinctly remember Sal calling me "terrifying" in an obschat once :sun:

maybe if a certain someone used their daycop already, it could help direct Sal's vig? Like if you find a scum, then even if Sal is scum, he better shoot that scum or he's gonna get it

I don't understand how you could be so sure that Jimmy is a worthy vote, and then come around to conclude that because you think I'm defending a scum buddy it's worth voting me instead. Now you're assuming the alignment of Jimmy, to make a case on me for your vote. Which makes your vote more precarious, and less well reasoned.

Here you go putting words in people's mouth and you wonder why you look scummy. Defending a scumbro is just one possibility, pocketing a townie is another. Maybe Jimmy is town and you as scum know he's town, so that's why you know the case is bad. Lets you look all nice and involved casing someone new instead of just lazy-voting Jimmy.

I really don't like how you're pushing the idea that you can only be cased if Jimmy is a scumbro you're defending. You're not scummy for defending Jimmy, Jimmy's alignment doesn't even matter when you already look plenty scummy enough for how you made your case against Yami.

@bif im too lazy to quote it properly cuz im pone posting, but yami DID say this

"All in all this reads to me as a BAD, BAD attack on a case in an attempt to protect a scumbuddy."

yeah, I did see that cause I went to go look again but I still really don't like how Toal is framing everything up like the case is only worthwhile if Yami's right about Toal AND Jimmy. I'm feeling more like Jimmy is town, he was just the first thing to get anything close to a serious case, so Toal decided to ride on in and use that to attack Yami.

It always drives me up the wall when people get all up in arms about the literal first cases of D1 being bad, like that earns them any cred at all
