Agree (strongly) on Madge. Agree with sharing part on mpolo. Do not agree that he would be bad at inventing a plausible fake claim, but I can’t think of any game where he has done so.BoomFrog wrote:@Ninja Spak: Both are influenced by meta reads. They are both players who tend to over share as town and they are both pretty bad at inventing plausible fake claims. Madge is also a bit... mmm... stream of consciousness-y. If she is scum it will probably be pretty obvious soon.
Question for DGamers: Does Overswarm provide safeclaims to scum?
I like this post by FrozenFlame. Agree with most of it.
Don’t like this post by jimbobmacdoodle.

Wording arguments rarely produce any meaningful results, and usually cause mass distraction from useful scum hunting.
I want to address this. Context for reference.

Not sure, but perhaps trying to plant an idea in town's mind, that we should lynch him, but without pushing too much?And what’s wrong with jumping on minor bits of terminology and blowing them out of proportion? You just described the greater part of my playstyle.jimbobmacdoodle wrote:#HBC | Zyth - As noted above, I like what bessie and others(?) have said about his opening post basically trying to announce he is town, but without explicitly saying it. Semi-subtle manipulation attempt? He also seems to be jumping on minor bits of terminology and blowing them out of proportion (see heuristically_alone initial vote reasoning).
To begin with, you didn’t answer the first question. If applying pressure is unacceptable, what would you consider reasonable D1 content? Your answer, applying pressure is fine, but it has to be for reasonable reasons, is a restatement of the question.
Moving on to the third part of that quote, let’s say I strongly disagree. Scum can and do get caught based on a careless sentence or even a misplaced word. See this example. jimbob made a “throwaway” remark about changing the setup. I accused him of knowing more than he should about the setup, and this contributed to me tunneling on him all of D1. Maybe that isn’t the best example, but I don’t want to get too distracted looking up old games. Suggestions for further reading: SDK is famous for picking out scum based on their confirmation posts.
Very interested in your follow up to this.Maven89 wrote:It's midnight where I am and I just got home, I managed to skim through what's been posted, I'll post something. Of value tomorrow, but until then, unvote:power whale or whatever, the whale guy. I'll post more about his read list tomorrow, but if he keeps up with what he just did then I will oppose his lynch day 1. If anyone still wants to lynch him speak up now
Madge. I’ll think about it, but since we need to hammer, ensuring a lynch comes first.
Re: lurkers/modprods/replacements. Normal xkcd method is the lurker has 24ish hours to respond to the modprod. If the lurker fails to respond or has multiple prods, they are replaced or modkilled. To avoid modkills, a mod will often allow zombie replacements (a dead player is allowed to replace if they have no extra information meaning they are town/non mason and they haven’t read spoilers in the Gojoe thread). I know YOLOSWAG is very against zombie replacements (see discussion with mpolo regarding zombie replacements here and this). Note: see opening post for how replacements will be handled this game. There is one replacement available (I’m not sure where plytho got two).
If Dark Horse doesn’t post soon, I think that it would be reasonable to request mod clarification on how they intend to handle it.
