I would also set up the accounts so that they cannot post in the forum at large.

Adding a poll to this thread, it'll close in a week and then I'll do whatever happens.

I honestly felt the urge to negarep you for not putting a joke option in the poll, but it's kinda like trying to stab an elephant with a spoon since that system is disabled for the commoners.

Good to have a poll up though.

If you guys are doin' this and it is a problem, feel free to also let me know. I doubt I'll be playing any game, unlike Fenris, and so won't present any in-game issues by knowing who's driving whom.

But hey if you guys try it out and it works for you all, cool. I must admit I am curious to see what happens.

Also, does Hawk want to run the next game in this fashion, or would you all prefer if I were to run it so we could iron out any kinks on the setup side of things?

If I were to run it, Hawk's game would probably run in the Forum Games forum proper alongside it because it's not fair of me to interject myself forcefully into running a game, unless he's totally cool with it.

I'm not altogether sure it'd be wise to run multiple Mafia games concurrently. Too likely to result in confusion for the participants in the event that we have people playing in both games - which is likely to happen since we don't really have enough players for two full games.

And it's not just Hawk who would be waiting extra for his game to run: There's a 10ish person long list waiting.

I don't think too much will go wrong if we just implement this next game, but I can see how it'd be a huge hassle to go about logging in and out every time you want to do something.

Would there be any way to have the two accounts temporarily linked?

Okay, to respond seriously, for once.

Has "meta" really been that much of a problem? I know people have been relying on it, but, so far, it hasn't seemed like something that's actually reliable, or any more likely to produce results than just going off gut instinct. And other than the D1 discussions, when people don't have anything to go on anyway, it hasn't seemed like something people have even bringing up thaaaat much. Admittedly, yes, when I'm scum, I'll sometimes try to go after the "good" players, but even there I'm not going after them just because they've been performing well in past games, I'm going after them because they're performing well this game and might pose a threat this game.

Not to mention that, even if we implement the aliases and make it agianst the rules to discuss them, it'll just add another layer to the guessing game.

It seems a lot of hassle, both for players and game masters, for a negligible benefit.

Mind you, I'm totally willing to give it a try, I just don't think it's really adressing a major problem.

Edit: Also, I haven#t actually read through the last few mafia games, it might be that meta is totally a problem that dominates absolutely every D1 discussio nto the exclusion of everythign else, in which case just ignore the bit about "not a major problem"

I'm also willing to give it a try. Mind you, I've only been in the last couple of games or so, but I think it's worth an experimental run. If Hawk is okay with it, let's have Fenris run the next one unless Hawk feels confident that he can handle it. In that case I would have to ask that Fenris abstain from playing in Hawk's game so he can closely monitor it with judge-like impartiality.

Also Gem, we can still totally vote Nikose Day 1.
