I just had an idea.
I recommend everyone post the following statement:
As of the time of this post, I have not used an ability, including but not limited to the truthify each player begins with and the truthify that the mod granted to a scum due to the modkill, that alters or reverses the truth value of any statement, or set of statements, or ensures it will be considered true or false, be it mine or another's.
After much thought, I decided not to include "nor, to the best of my knowledge, has anyone used such an ability on any statement of mine." This would trigger if the scum anticipated this strategy and so truthified the other's "I am town" claim. However, it may run afoul of the golding rule, potentially ruining the whole exercise, and in any case, it seems unlikely that the dead scum would have truthified their allies claim and the living scum did not do the same (if they did, the omitted part is not necessary due to the "or another's" part. Thus I do not consider it much of a loss.
Now it's obvious for this to have any benefit, it must be done before Boomfrog's plan. As of now, no townie should have used truthify. If you've used truthify so far, you better post that reason, clearly marked, in your next post. I strongly recommend all players cease any posting of the statements related to Boomfrog's plan until all players have posted my statement (and of course, not lie detect yet). As a side benefit, doing this plan will actually make Boomfrog's plan better, as long as everyone posts my statement before proceeding with his plan, because it can deprive the scum of one of their truthifies, thus meaning if they are vanilla, they will still not be able to truthify all their statements (unless for some reason their ally truthified their town claim and they didn't return the favor). Of course, if they aren't vanilla, it might not help much, but I don't see how it will hurt (unless we suboptimally allocate lie detectors between the two plans, though this seems unlikely because in the worst case you all can use your detectors on his plan and I can use mine on mine, since I wasn't likely to use mine on his plan anyway).
If you don't, in your next post, claim that you've used your truthify (or another ability that would run afoul of my statement) and why, or provide a really good reason why you shouldn't say this, then don't expect to claim, as an excuse to coming up false on a lie detector of my statement, that you've already used such an ability.
I do understand that the tone of this post may have come across a little insistent. I'm open to the possibility that my plan is flawed in some way, even to the possibility that posting my statement is a bad idea. If you have a reason why, I'm open to being convinced. But if not, I ask that you not continue with Boomfrog's plan until we've either all posted my statement (and any claims that truthify has already been used), or until we determine my plan is a bad idea.
