Yeah I vaguely remember us talkin about it a while ago, I feel like you told me you were a deep wing or something but probably wrong on that. But thatís why I jokingly challenged you in the discord to see who the true referee of SA Mafia was before Keane pulled rank on us as a dodgeball World Cup international referee

Oh nice. If it werenít for COVID I would start going to college ID camps by now. Iím not working full varsity yet but I have expendable income and I think it would be good as a teaching experience and good to be in front of those people a few times since thatís my ultimate goal. Plus I have family where they usually do the camp in my state so I can have an excuse to go visit them haha.

Just got to the end of page 10, taking longer than I would have liked because I keep watching football, but two things that jumped out are the Rarity post that Ref used in his case of getting on to Hal for "admitting he is posting for show" less than a day into the game, and also oh my god can someone please vig Squiggly, this one letter per post zombie crap is the most annoying thing I've seen in a mafia game in a long time

Finishing up on Page 15, and while Rarity is the vote today, Amni is another poster worth looking at imo

Amnistar posted:

I don't agree that I'm ignoring posts. My primary read on AC comes from the fact that they immediately pressed for more information about a claim early in the day. My secondary reason for thinking them scum is that their most recent jump onto the Rarity vote, one of the two vote leaders, with a case that is...meh. Yes, I'm not talking about other posts, but that's simply because they don't make me think they are or aren't scum.

apostateCourier posted:

you still won't say why pressing for information is bad??

Amnistar posted:

...Scum want to know who to kill?

This is the "press[ing] for more information about a claim"

Hal Incandenza posted:

##vote squiggly

apostateCourier posted:

I know it's day 1 but is there a why?

Calling that a press about a claim is weird phrasing intended to get a reaction. Asking questions is not a scummy thing.

Amnistar posted:

without rereading the thread my opinion of Rarity is:

I don't know I haven't read anything they've posted.

Amnistar posted:

More specifically, it's a 24 person game and trying to keep up with everything means that I'm keeping up with no one, so I'm skimming right now and paying attention to people that jump out at me. Rarity has not jumped out at me so I have no current opinion, will go reread since you asked though Yami.

I also do not believe this to be true. While I'm not going to go back to count posts up to this point, Rarity is the highest poster in the game now and I'd be surprised if she hadn't been on every page, which would make it hard to not have an opinion on them! And like this

Amnistar posted:

Not because they voted rarity, but because they voted for the vote leader based on "new" posts, in an attempt to differentiate themselves from others which is a thing scum do to make it seem like they're not bandwagoning.

Just reads as a gotcha to me. If AC had repeated the previous stuff, I am 100% sure Amni would have called them out for +1ing.

But also a lot of people haven't been around and I'm probably going to hammer soon if no one else does? Attendance here is sparse which is weird even for when considering it's a Saturday night IMO, so I'm not sure the value in waiting especially because there is about to be boxing to watch. Like, what, this is the list of people around in the last 4 hours?

Real talk, I have homework due tonight so that's my priority so I will be "around" in the vague sense that when I get bored or stuck I will probably click "next unread post" and skim to see whats happening so if you have anything directly for me please quote this post so it highlights and catches my attention. I am sure most of the case on me revolves around "slords lurking again" which is as predictable as it is understandable so no judgment on my part.

To try to answer what I am sure are some frequently asked questions

*No I don't really know what's going on I haven't read practically any of D2.

*I don't know who the scum is. I can make a scum read up if you want me to! Gut is, IDK, taste and/or Sal, but I don't have anything concrete. I thought Amni was definitely scum and bought into the Rarity case, so whoopsie on those counts.

*I may go ahead and claim tonight because I expect I will also be very busy with record retention work tomorrow so who knows when I will be able to post. Thinking this one over, if you have strong feelings about me doing this or not go ahead and post them, maybe that'll be a fun topic of conversation, should someone at -7 claim 24 hours before deadline or not.

*If anyone has any tips on how to find a single specific blueprint in a room full of them I would love to hear it.

Bifauxnen posted:

Well drat that was a poetic and ironic N1

I'm not opposed to a Hal lunch, but I'm still thinking about Grandi today. Especially since I was wrong about both Rarity and Amni, but scum still thought it was worth trying to kill me already.

Checking votefinder I see you voted for Grandi and then backed away. What led to the back away? Especially because like, to me

Grandicap posted:

I'd be willing to take that as a pillar of a real case, but standalone I am very confused on how it is gaining traction.

This reads to me as overly worried about Hal getting 2 votes plus a third person saying "yeah maybe". I try to put myself in the shoes of "town player who is concerned about someone getting to -10 right after the day opens" and short of having a super strong town read on someone I just don't see it. You can argue it's different playstyles but it just reads as scummy to me, trying to jump out in front of this vote as if the votes in the early going are going to create some unstoppable force. The interesting question here for me is "if I am right about this is it wanting to get in front to say 'see I knew Hal was town' or to make a save", which I don't really have an answer to. Little note to self to circle around once I get done with the 13 pages to go back and find your grandi case if it doesn't make itself apparent with your "future" vote.

Yami Fenrir posted:

Turns out my brain just doesn't want to work for this (RL) day so I'll strive to get proper reads during this (game) day instead but I want to say that Steak's behavior re: the rarity lunch bothers me.

Honestly both he and Sandwolf do, with the way they just swooped in to declare that "they acquired too many votes too fast" which honestly seems like a horseshit reason to me, especially with the surprisingly big D1 case material in their content.

Both of them seemed too sure that rarity is town for my liking in those early posts if that makes sense? Preemptively distancing from a lunch they know is town, only to then go back on it later anyway because you know, actual case and stuff. I feel like both largely avoided having an actual stated opinion on them? Other than the votecount argument, which I really feel is strenuous.

I only skimmed tho so maybe I'm just seeing things. Does anyone else feel the same?

Hi Yami, looking at votefinder it does not appear that (or anyone else) ever voted for Steak today, what ever happened to this? Do you still feel this way and have decided lurker lunch is better? You voted for Ceyton, me, and Chic today as your only votes when you have at least a half-proper scum read here.
