3) I have been playing mafia since 2015, I think? Maybe a bit earlier?
4) My meta is actually kinda more chill lately
5) My favourite 90s kids cartoon is Sailor Moon

She instantly drops an OMGUS vote on me that reeks of instant panic. I feel an undertone here of 'gently caress off and leave me alone'. Only scum would be scared of such an early callout.

Actually you just don't seem aware of my meta, which makes sense, but the lack of awareness of tone is irritating

Please explain how this has anything to do with your meta.

Anyway, here is a proper answer since I know we've never played together. I historically often call myself 'towniest town', literally in those exact words. I take great pride in being an effortposter even on D1, sometimes especially on D1, while others insist nothing can be figured out yet. I then expect people to notice, once I get on a roll.

I also love to focus on people voting me to suss out who has bad motivations behind it, and just own it and don't give a poo poo whenever someone says it's OMGUS. I think responding head-on to attacks is a great way to scumhunt. But in this case my vote on you was not intended to be serious. I thought a retaliatory vote on you for perhaps slighting Sailor Moon instead of me would be amusing.

Thanks rarity!

I think we are in the transition out of jokephase, and Amni is being townie Amni and applying pressure to all and sundry to test the waters, which is a good idea. Keep scumhunting Amni, but I’m town.

As for me, I’m more of a passive town D1, I’m on the lookout for performance art and lurkers to inform my vote opinion.

"performance/performative" count: 1 and counting

Bif, my one true friend who I would never dream of suspecting, what do you think of binus and Hal?

I do think I could be on to something with binus bothering to call me scummy but not wanting to drop a vote, possibly because it woulda been the third vote.

Hal though, I try and defer reading until I have more actions to judge instead of just words cause I nearly always see him as scummy. His vote on me felt like he was just parking it somewhere for jokephase, but is he ever gonna move on to something serious? I'd feel better about reading him in hindsight of how a full day has gone.

who the hell actually believes "third vote scum" nowadays, and more over, wouldn't that number really depend on the number of players in the game?

It's obviously not a hard and fast rule, making it sound like a law of mafia is a joke, but it does vaguely sum up a genuine principle.

Once you start actually piling a few votes on people, it passes from looking like just jokephase to causing actual consequences now, of making someone look like a serious lunch candidate.

The third vote or so is a pretty good place for scum to start coming in, if they want a mislunch to take off. Cast the first vote on someone and you might take all the blame for sticking your neck out and making a bad case. Cast the second vote and you might look too me-too. But once someone else has already done the me-too, it's not quite as scary anymore. It's now an approved idea that's passed some scrutiny and has more than one oddball townie on board.

No, I don't think binus probably sat there literally counting the votes, but he bothered to pick out that post of mine and call it pretty scummy, in a way that had no joke attached that I could see. So why not vote, if it was serious?

It's not just about that. It's that binus bothered to point out an individual post of mine and call it really scummy, instead of settling for his usual "lol", "scum are shook", "lots of scum bussing on this page" vague floating undirected statements which are his trademark. Yet despite having such a strong scum vibe from that specific post of mine, he didn't vote me. Why was he to chicken to vote me? That's a classic scummy behavior regardless of which vote number it is. That was the start of my criticism. "Maybe cause he was avoiding the third vote" is an afterthought.

I'm also pretty suspicious of both you and E+ trying so hard to downplay such a small initial jab at binus.

You're actively trying now to make this about something it's not.

##vote beetface

My concern with binus is that he held back from voting me for seemingly no reason,which could be a telltale behaviour of cautious scum. "Maybe it's cause he was avoiding the third vote" was a little flourish I added instead of just saying "maybe cause he's scum!" cause I noticed that would've been the third vote if he hadn't held back.
