LynchPool.com - Mafia players wanted
« on: March 19, 2019, 01:41:55 am »

Hello Mafia Friends!

I'm excited to announce a project I've been working on. LynchPool.com is a website which runs Forum Mafia automatically. It currently offers Less Pressure, as well as two smaller set ups which are really only for testing purposes, all with 48 hour deadlines. I intend to add more setups soon.

This is my first project of this kind and I'm definitely still learning, but I think it's ready for testing.

So if you're interested and are a regular or experienced player of Forum Mafia, please let me know and I'll send you a Beta Key.

Edit: The main site (www. as opposed to beta.) is open and looking for players, experienced or otherwise.

If by QTs you mean private threads then yes, and in fact in Less Pressure Mafia have a Vengekill. I've got some Normal setups about 90% ready, but I'm waiting until we have a few Blitz games under our belts before starting on them.

You can't sign yourself up for a setup you're already playing, but I signed you up. As it turns out, you can't actually drop out yourself, so let me know if you don't want to be in a second game at the same time. Anyone else currently playing, let me know if you'd like to play a second game of the same setup so we can get one going.

You've played before, right? I haven't got around to putting together basic instructions on how to play or basic rules regarding civility, communication about ongoing games etc. As long as you don't need these things explained to you, you're fine. I'll send you a key.

And while you are here you should join the game that has 4/5 people in it.

Also, P.S. It might be kinda cool to let people that are signed up for a game have a spot t talk to each other.  There ya go, un-asked-for suggestion achieved.

All suggestions are asked for.

I've been thinking about joining, but I want to give others a chance to. I got impatient and joined Mini Mafia #1, but that left joth without anyone to play with. I'll join tomorrow if no one has.

Your idea is not a bad one, but I'm not sure the best way to go about it. It wouldn't be the same as a 'pre-game' because people can still drop out etc. Also if there happens to be enough players to start more than one game, they'll be sorted by rating. So you won't always be sure exactly who will be in the game with you. There could be a thread for each setup devoted to players who are currently signed up, but I think it's just as easy for someone to create a thread in the Games section of the forum.

Custom games for sure will have a pre-game thread for people signed up, thinking about signing up etc. Maybe I'll do something for Rated games when I'm working on that.

No worries, although I'll probably delete the unused keys in a few days, so you (and others) can either create your account before then or ask for another key later.

Not currently, just the in-site notification. I'll look at providing that option at some point.

Jim has done really good work. The platform is cool and he’s  actively improving it. The small size and quick days are fun!

It would be awesome to have you join us, LL!  It has been awesome people, awesome fun, so far. There is also a less demanding game signing up (Less Pressure) that has 48 hour days and no night. We have played three of them at this point (I think), and they seem to average about 4-5 days.

I hope that you are doing well!  We miss you!!

I'll probably open the second Normal setup (2d3) when Matrix6 #1 is in Night 1 or Day 2. If you missed out on Matrix6 #1 (or die early) and want me to reserve you a spot in 2d3 #1, let me know.

I feel you on the sociophobic level. This format, for whatever reason, has been far more friendly and chatty than f.ds. And because the friendly and chatty folks have been in from early on, I don’t think we’ll be disciplined by the all-business players into being less interested in one another. I was scum two out of the three times I played and that wasn’t yucky. The scum daychst in the Less Pressure game made it way less isolating. That’s my sense anyway.  xoxo

Also generally speaking, if people tell me what's holding them back from getting involved, I'm more than happy to try to accommodate everyone.

Once Custom games are a thing, you'll be able to make these kinds of decisions yourselves when you run a game.

No, 7 days is fine, I thought I read it was 48 hours somewhere.

Right, so we've only had Blitz games so far, which have 48 hour deadlines. But our first Normal game with 7-day days and 2-day nights has just started. The second should start in about a week (unless enough players sign up for Matrix6 for a second one of those to start). Would you like me to reserve a spot for you?

Isn't it enough if I sign up to have a spot reserved?

I mean, in about a week I plan to open another setup, 2d3. I'm offering for those not playing Matrix6 #1 to sign you up as soon as I open it so that you'll still play even if you're not in the first 9 people to be online and want to play.

You can definitely sign up for Matrix6 now and you'll be in the next one of those that start. Just be aware that your signup will expire after 24 hours if you don't renew it, and those already playing Matrix6 can't sign up while they're still alive in that game (although I can sign them up if we're close-ish to filling a second game).

Here are some feature requests:

1) optional e-mail notifications for (each as a separate option):
 - game starts
 - new game phase starts
 - new votes
 - new posts

2) in each post, display links to all of the replies to that post

3) when you hover your cursor over a post link, highlight that post in a slightly different color if it's visible on the current screen, otherwise display it in a popup where your cursor is

4) when you click on a post link, instead of reloading the page, just jump to that post if it's on the same page

5) Make it possible for a post to be a reply to multiple posts

6) Consider making each vote count a reply to each previous vote count

I'll definitely look into doing this at some point.

2) in each post, display links to all of the replies to that post

I've thought about the best way to do this without it taking up too much space if it become a lot. Still thinking.

Quote
3) when you hover your cursor over a post link, highlight that post in a slightly different color if it's visible on the current screen, otherwise display it in a popup where your cursor is

I'm not sure I'll go with a popup as it might be difficult for it to work well across screen sizes and with varied post lengths, but how best to refer to replied to posts is definitely on my radar. Highlighting the post if it's on-screen is a cool idea.

4) when you click on a post link, instead of reloading the page, just jump to that post if it's on the same page

I'll look into this.

Quote
5) Make it possible for a post to be a reply to multiple posts

Definitely on my radar. Rather, being able to quote multiple posts.

Quote
6) Consider making each vote count a reply to each previous vote count

So that you can link back to the previous one? What about instead a view that shows all the votes?

I'm not sure if it's unreasonably difficult to implement, but that's a pretty standard image board feature.

I have a few thoughts on that. The first one is that while it's not particularly expensive to run the site, it's not free either. I can cover that cost for the short to medium-term, but not forever. And that cost will probably increase as the site gets more users and traffic.

I'm not ready to lay out my full thoughts on the matter, but the gist would be that participating in the more basic games (everything we have so far would count as basic) would be free, but participating and/or modding more interesting games would require a small subscription fee in the order of a few dollars per year.

The alternative obviously would be throwing ads up, but I don't really want to do that.

So we should get this going again. Maybe give custom setups a real test out, no?

Probably not the one I just built though cause it's probably terrible? Flavor features are fun though!

I'm pretty close to having asher9++ ready to run as a Custom Game, so I was going to try to get that going. Eddie ADK was the one who suggested it, so he can run it if he wants, but it might be better if I did so that we can fill the game more easily.

So.... anyone want to come sign up for asher9++? There are currently no games happening on Jim's site, which makes us all very bad beta testers.

Or you can all sign up for "Fun interesting mafia" the completely unbalanced setup I made to test the custom setup maker. It can't be that awful, right?

I think it boils down to the fact that for most current users it's their secondary place to play Mafia, and it can be hard enough having time to play Mafia on one site, let alone two. I think I need to open the main site as soon as possible, and try to get some new players involved.

I probably shouldn't sign up for that one so everyone who was in the original game has a chance to do so?

Apologies for my lack of engagement lately. I know there have been a few issues that have been brought up which I haven't responded to. I'll make sure to get to them all in the next couple of days.

In the meantime, we're only 2 players shy of starting another Less Pressure. My brother (Wings) is keen to try it out and is considering working on the site with me. It'd be great if we could get a game going soon.

Yeah it would basically just be answering questions in Help threads (you'll get notifications for posts there), and if something goes wrong or someone needs to be replaced or whatever, just letting me know in case I can fix it without ruining the game.

Hi all!

Some of you will remember Dice Mafia. I'm working on a greatly simplified version and it's pretty close to ready to test. I'm hoping that it generates enough interest to run a 9-13 player test game. Here's how it works at the moment:


There are no specific roles; all night actions come from the dice.

Each player starts with some number of unrolled 6-sided dice in their supply.
Each Day in which there are at least 5 players remaining, players are given a target score to aim for. To contribute to this target, players can roll 1-5 dice (in their Personal thread) and then play one. A played die contributes its value to the score. All dice which are rolled but not played are stored.

Each Night, each player may spend one stored die for a Night Action, depending on the value of the spent die.


Dice with a value of 2-3 provide an action regardless of alignment or the prior Day's result:

3. Dice Thief - Steal two dice from another player's supply.
2. Dice Giver - Give all your 1s to another player. If they have at least 5 1s, they discard two and return three to their supply (they become unrolled).
(1. No action.)


Actions provided by dice with a value of 4-6 depend on the player's alignment and whether the goal was achieved on the prior Day.

If the target is successfully reached:

Town Actions:
6. Cop
5. Tracker
4. Watcher

Mafia Actions:
6. Godfather (max one player per Night)
5. Ninja
4. Watcher

Otherwise:

Town Actions:
6. Roleblocker
5. Doctor
4. Bodyguard

Mafia Actions:
6. Vigilante (max one player per Night)
5. Strongman
4. Roleblocker


The idea is that after a successful Day, the Town has the chance to gain some information, and otherwise the Mafia has the chance to get an extra night kill.

I would love any kind of feedback, but especially with regards to the actions - do they seem fair to both sides? Are the higher value actions generallly stronger than the lower value ones? Is the game interesting enough without players having their own roles? Let me know what you think!

You can't sign up for it on the site yet, but you can /in here if you want and I'll sign you up when it's ready.

Watcher is better than Tracker. I don't know what scum's Watcher is there for except to confuse town Trackers. A Roleblocker there would be more useful.

I'm generally not in love with 1-shot investigations; there is no reason to hold back your results and it doesn't make for very interesting gameplay.

Scum Vigilante is much too strong compared to the other roles they can have upon failure. It should need at least 2 6s or something.

Watcher is better because you're more likely to get multiple results, or because it's easier (and/or a more useful mindgame) to predict who'll be killed than who will do the killing?
The point of the scum Watcher is to prevent Town players from using their Tracking/Watching to become ICs.

The interesting gameplay is supposed to come from the rolling and playing dice during the Day - I think that's what people enjoyed most about the previous setup. The Night Actions are one of the simpler ways I came up with to make the Day's result matter; I'm more than happy for suggestions on other ways to reward or penalise each team.

Quote
Scum Vigilante is much too strong compared to the other roles they can have upon failure. It should need at least 2 6s or something.

Aside from denying Town the use of Cops etc, Vigilante is scum's only reward for a failure. The other actions are just ways to try to prevent Town from preventing their kills. In fact it can backfire and result in no kills if scum doesn't have a Strongman action. I wondered whether this possibility meant scum wasn't rewarded enough, but maybe the lack of investigations is strong enough in itself.

Anyway, there's no hurry. This is what I've come up with at the moment. Feel free to hit me with more ideas etc.

Easier/more useful to determine who will be killed.

If you have good enough scumreads to track the mafia, you will often win anyway.
If you have good enough townreads to identify a couple players that are never getting lynched this game, you haven't necessarily won, but if you land a watch, suddenly you have.

I just put through a big and somewhat messy update. There are probably still bugs to be found, so apologies and thank you if you find one.

Events
Dice Mafia is now open for signups. It is slightly modified from the post above. Regardless of whether the game ends up both fun and balanced, its purpose is to demonstrate and test the Event game mode.

The idea behind Events is to allow for games that take a bit more work to set up than your average Custom game. Think of the big involved Role Madness games. I am now fairly well set up to code future Events, so if anyone has a well fleshed-out idea that you think would work, let me know and I can probably make it work as the next Event.

Test Games
You can now run test games of your Custom setups with dummy players in which you can make all the decisions for them, including deciding the lynch with the click of a button. I think this will be a great tool which will help mods get a better feel for the balance of a setup by running through it a few times.

Flex Roles
Flex Roles allow you to have a flexible player count. So you might have a 9-player minimum, and then if there's a 10th player they're a VT, then the 11th is Goon and so on.

Signups
When a signup expires, instead of being deleted it becomes unconfirmed. That means that when trying to get enough people to play a game, there will be a list of unconfirmed signups - players who have signed up and not actively dropped out - that we can pursue to help fill the game.

Also, when you are starting a Custom game you now have the choice of which signed up players to involve in the game.


I would really appreciate if we could get enough players to play Dice Mafia, or really any game. Feel free to invite more people to play; just ask me for keys. (Also, thanks to shraeye and Eddie who have still been signing up to play occasionally for the last couple of months - don't think I haven't noticed.)

Oh I should mention prods as well. They are now issued automatically. For Blitz games, the timer is 24 hours and for Normal 36. (24 seems a little strict for automatically issued prods. Depending what people think, it's plausible it will be reduced to 30 or even 24.) When you are prodded, you have 12 hours to respond or you will be prodded again. Responding resets the timer back to 24/36 hours. If you receive a second prod in a single game (either due to failing to respond within 12 hours or by not posting for 24/36 hours twice), the moderator has the ability to replace you with someone who has signed up as a sub.

Are you ready to Party?? Because Party Mafia (also known as Drunk Mafia) is ready for you! I think.

Here's how it works:
From the Games page you can access the Party Mafia page from which you can access current parties or start a party. If you start a party, you're the moderator for the whole party. You can choose from list of Party setups (see below), and once you have enough people you can start a game. When that game finishes, you can change the setup if you want, and start another game.

There is a single Party thread in which anyone can post and all games for that Party take place. There is also a single Mafia thread; while there's a game on those who shouldn't see them will not be able to see the posts from that game.

The game does not enforce deadlines; that's up to the mod, who can trigger a random lynch. In games with Nights, they can also trigger the start of the new day.

The moderator can also play. Obviously if they do play they can't access any information they shouldn't, but they can still be contacted through Help Threads, and they are still responsible for deadlines and replacing players.

Aside from Vanilla Nightless, which is self-explanatory and has a variable player count, the Party setups currently available are: Mini Mafia (which was formerly run as a Rated setup), Dethy and Crush Nightless. Feel free to suggest/request more.

I'm hoping we can work out a time to try this out. It'd be cool if someone like shraeye or raerae ran it so you could let me know what you think of that aspect of it.

shraerae... I recall you had a bunch of Drunk Mafia setups somewhere but I can't seem to find the link to them. Could you remind me how to access them please?

I went here:
https://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?title=Category:Micro_Setups
To get a good idea of options. 
Some I just copy/pasted (like Star-Crossed and Venge)
Others I kinda tinkered with; off the top of my head, I can't remember where I put my list of ideas though :(  Star-Crossed is nice, because it is very scaleable.  You have to be careful with Venge, I have a few variations for more players (and one for 4 I think) trying to balance as much as possible.

Oh thanks, I actually found what I was looking for: the survey at the start of one of the Drunk Mafia threads. I think we have a reasonable starting point so I'm not itching to add more, but if there are some that are wanted in particular I'm more than happy to add them.

Not terribly, six respondents and the answers were all fairly spread out, mostly ranking each scenario 3-5, nothing was a clear winner.

We've just finished a game of Less Pressure, so if you want in on the next one, now's the time.

Also, assuming those with unconfirmed signups reconfirm, we only need 1 more for Dice Mafia and 3 more for 2d3.

Also, shraeye is thinking of hosting Party Mafia some time in 10-19 December.

I also made some custom setups. “Never Trust a Cop” is probably balanced enough to be playable and only takes 7 players. They’re not ambitious.

Are you saying it's good for a Party game, or a general Custom game? I'm happy to look at adding it to the Party roster.

Gold+ Members can now create Flavors for their Custom games and Rated games.

A Flavor involves Alignment Flavors (eg change the name, colour etc of each alignment), Role Flavors (eg give roles character names, set their role message text etc) and Flavor Texts (ie text to accompany events such as lynches under particular circumstances).

You can create multiple Flavors for your Custom setups. Each time you create a game with that setup, you can choose which Flavor to use (or to use none).

When you create a Flavor for a Rated setup, pending being approved by an admin, it enters the rotation of Flavors to be used for games of that setup.

I've still got a bit of fixing up to do, and haven't written any instructions, but if you create a Flavor for Less Pressure it does a lot of the work for you, so you should hopefully have some idea of what's going on. Click on the "Flavors..." button on the setup page for Less Pressure.

We have enough for Less Pressure, just waiting for a few people to reconfirm their signup (anyone else can jump in though). It'd be great to get a few more for 2d3 or a Custom game.

Hi all!

The main site (www.lynchpool.com) is up and open for anyone.

Thanks so much for everyone who has helped out so far. I'm keen to get some activity going and I'd really appreciate anyone who can join in.

For anyone who wants to help, here is a list of ways to do so, in approximate order of priority:

1. Play. This is by far the highest priority. The goal would be to always have a game going (so new players can check it out before joining in), and to always have a beginner-friendly game not too far from starting (so new players don't have long to wait before starting their first game).

2. Invite people. Everyone's welcome, and the more players we can get, the more games will happen

3. Use the forum. Feedback is always appreciated, and it'd be great to have some friendly discussion outside of games.

4. Create flavour. I'm not sure how much flavourless games appeal to new players, so it'd be great if we could get some entertaining flavour written for our rated setups. Created flavour hasn't received much testing yet, and the info page on it probably needs a lot of work, so if this interests you, check it out and let me know when you get stuck.

5. Create and run setups. Play around with the options that already exist, and let me know when you want to do something you can't yet do. There's a wide world of Mafia setups out there, and having some demand for particular roles etc would help give me direction on what to implement. I think the ability to run test games with dummy players makes this a great way to try out your ideas before testing them on real players.

6. Beta test. I plan to deactivate most accounts on the Beta site, and to use it to test newly implemented interfaces, mechanics etc. Games that take place there will have short deadlines and probably some dummy players to fill them up. It'd be great to have a few people to check things out before they become available on the main site. Let me know if you're interested in being one of those people.

7. Be an admin. I already have 3 volunteers for this (shraeye, faust and Eddie), which is certainly more than enough for the time being. Admin responsibilities will be things like answering questions, approving flavour, promoting high-quality custom games (so they show up at the top of the list), and whatever else we come up with. As I said, 3 is plenty, but if you're super keen I'm not against having more.

8. Contribute financially. If you feel like the site is worth it and/or you'd like to support it in this way, every dollar is hugely appreciated, and it'd be great one day to be able to cover the costs of keeping it running. You can either upgrade your account or donate directly to the connected Paypal account.


Again, thanks so much to everyone who has or will join in in any way. Again, the main thing at the moment is to get some games happening so that new players have something to do.

As always, let me know if you have any questions, suggestions etc.

Hi Jim-

The plate worked great last night. I think the hybrid version we played with video chat and lynch pool to run the game was especially good because it didn’t need a moderator and I could play.

One super minor thing...I started the party, posted the link, went and did some stuff, and then it ended the party. Perhaps I was idle for too long?

Great! :)

Are there any changes you would suggest for this kind of game? As in, when you create a Party, you specify that it's for a video chat or IRL game and it works differently somehow?

The timer for ending the Party is 12 hours. If it was less than this, I'm guessing it's not being set properly when a Party is created.

One change (and I never know what is actually possible) that would be awesome for the hybrid game is if I could pin the group video link somewhere where it would be easy to see if folks who come looking.

Exactly! That would be especially helpful for platforms like Zoom where we’d need to post the link and the password.

Great idea, and not difficult at all. Do you want the password at the top of screen as well?

I've made some improvements for the next Party:
  • Implemented the Star-Crossed setup. I'll add it to the Party setups before it starts.
  • The moderator of a Party can add a "Video Chat Link" and "Video Chat Password". These will appear at the top of each in-game page. These can be changed via "Settings" from the game's Home page.
  • PPE warnings in Parties should now only appear when voting, and only for other votes (or Day ends etc). Let me know if you'd rather have none at all, or also have warnings about votes when you're posting. If there's enough variety of preference maybe I'll add a per-user option.
  • Modkills are working as far as I can tell. Something weird happened last time with the votes. I'm not sure exactly what caused it, but a modkill now resets all votes (to avoid L-1 issues), so hopefully that covers whatever happened. Modlynches are now available, and can be used by the mod to enforce deadlines instead of random lynches if they want.

I also can't find the flavor area you were talking about, nor the option to create a game directly from the Games page, nor a list of possible setups, etc.

Maybe I'm on the wrong page?

Ah. As a free member you can't create setups (or do any of those other things), so you shouldn't be given the option to. I've upgraded you so now you should be able to do all of those things.

Thanks.

I created a simple flavor -- is that now available to other mods for use?  I wrote some quick text for IC, VT, and MG so that it could be used for Less Pressure as a test.

I don't know how to set up a Less Pressure game, though, unless I have to build it myself?  Anyway, I didn't write lynch text or some of the other boxes, as I wasn't sure where it would go yet.  I think by using test games I was able to see that Role PMs use my flavor text now.  I will flesh it out, and try to make a few more generic flavors for you to have as standard selections if you like them.

I've done a second simple flavor set for the site.  There are now two:

"Witches in the Village"
"Inspector Spacetime"

There are role texts for the three roles needed for Less Pressure.  If these flavors are available to mods, one could attempt a game with them to see if they work.  In my test games, they appear to do fine.

Currently for Custom games you can only use your own setups and flavours.

Less Pressure is a Rated setup, which means it's always available to sign up for, and games start automatically (at the top of the hour) when there are enough confirmed signups. Currently we just need one new signup and the two unconfirmed signups to be confirmed, and it will start. I will be the mod for it, although I can add others to the list of mods and then one would be chosen at random.

You can write flavour for Rated setups, and then once approved by an admin, it will become available to be randomly selected when a game starts.

I only found the “flavor” button from my custom setup area.

Where do I go to make the flavor for rated setups?  Is there a way to export the stuff I made for my custom setup?

Scroll down to the Flavors section on the Less Pressure page: https://www.lynchpool.com/games/less-pressure/flavors/

Hmm, it might work for me to just change the setup from yours to Less Pressure.

I've switched them to Less Pressure.

Note that a role flavor only counts for one player's role, so you'll need two to cover both ICs.
Also, the name (eg Councilman) is intended to be a character name. If you were looking to replace Innocent Child with Councilman then currently there's no way to do that, although I'm open to suggestions on how to do it without losing clarity.

Should I just make another Councilman entry?  Having two entries would cover the two roles, I assume.

I figure it read okay with Councilman replacing the name, so it is Councilman, an IC.  Flavor is councilman “player name” I suppose and role is still IC.

I would need two Inspectors too, I guess.  Will do it.

Added duplicate IC flavor to both simple flavors on the Less Pressure setup. 

It'd be neat if there was a way to just create a large flavor world with all the roles, then be able to apply them to any setup -- so I just create whatever other roles are needed for 2d3 and then the flavor would be available for both from a flavor pool.

Why isn't the 2nd IC Constable Reggie?

Because I thought I couldn't have two separate.  I will fix that!

Although two Inspectors from different times worked fine.

Actually, I think since it is approved, I can't.  It's fine.

It'd be neat if there was a way to just create a large flavor world with all the roles, then be able to apply them to any setup -- so I just create whatever other roles are needed for 2d3 and then the flavor would be available for both from a flavor pool.

Hmm that's a cool idea. I imagine it'll be a while before I look into it but I added it to my list.

Understandable.

I guess what I'm envisioning is a mod logs in, goes to start a new game, picks whatever standard, ranked setup they want.

On the setup page, the flavors... link is there.  When they click it, they see a list of provided flavors (these would be the things we include for mods who want something other than regular but don't want to write their own).  For example, Witches in the Village, Inspector Spacetime, Dracula's Castle, whatever...

They select whatever flavor they want and it is applied to their game.  Basically what happens now when you choose Less Pressure, but for all games all the time.

The "creative" work is making all the flavor text for all the roles.  The back-end work is allowing any game to pull from that pool of flavor text (I think).

As it is, if anyone runs Less Pressure with one of my flavors, let me know so I can see how it works.

Am I able to edit approved flavor?  Probably not, right?

I guess what I'm envisioning is a mod logs in, goes to start a new game, picks whatever standard, ranked setup they want.

Currently Ranked setups are only run automatically. If you want to mod a game, you need to create a Custom setup and open that (and you can create whatever Flavors and pick one to use). I could also add you to the list of mods for a Rated setup, and then you'd be the mod 1/n of the time that you're not playing. But you wouldn't get to pick which Flavor is used.

Having pre-made Flavors anyone can use is a great idea (I'm going to do something similar with setups: a list of "public" setups anyone can use). Obviously you'd still want it to be editable, but at least having a starting point would be really helpful I imagine.

Yours are the only ones that exist currently. When one more person signs up for Less Pressure, one of them (if they're approved) will be randomly selected for that game.

Thanks, updated one IC to Constable Reggie.

I am hopeful and happy to provide these flavors, as I find the writing fun.  I think generic flavors (Witches in the Village, for example) work well, and the random specific theme (Inspector Spacetime) could be fun for people who like those things.

Yours are the only ones that exist currently. When one more person signs up for Less Pressure, one of them (if they're approved) will be randomly selected for that game.

I see, so with auto-run rated games, the flavor is randomly assigned from the approved list.  That makes sense.  Is "no flavor" still a random option?

No, it's just the default if there aren't any available to use. I intend to have Flavors go on "cooldown" so that when one is used there will be a few weeks or months before you see the same one again (in that Rated setup at least).

Just need one more for Less Pressure (and people to reconfirm)!

Is someone who isn't playing (faust?) willing to mod? Basically just means answering questions. If something sensitive needs fixing players can report it to you and you can relay it to me etc. That way if we can't get our 8th I'll join.

Done, although it looks like you might be having issues sending email to my provider (kolabnow.com is my provider, with my own custom email domain o7news.com - I have the MX records correct but I've noticed this is occasionally an issue and I haven't been able to find out why).

Hi all!

A couple of things. My availability for Mafia-related activities is about to go down very significantly. I'm still very committed to the site and making regular updates, but I'll be aiming to get something like 2-3 things done a week rather than 1-2 per day. There are still plenty of things on my to-do list and I won't be surprised if it grows more quickly than it shrinks for a while, so I can't guarantee how quickly I will be able to respond to suggestions and requests. But keep making them, and I will keep adding them to the list and get to them when I can. Any and all contributions you can make in terms of playing, inviting and organising for people to play are very much appreciated; I hope to spend as much of my Mafia time as I can improving the site.

Secondly, could I please have an indication of who is keen to help with Beta testing? I'm envisioning having 5 or so testers who each have say 3 different accounts on the Beta site, and use these accounts to fill games there. Games will be purely for testing purposes (site testing that is, not balance-related setup testing). Days will last 24 hours and Night 48 (there's more to test during Nights). There's no obligation to check the site every day (there won't be prods), although ideally everyone logs in each Night and submits whatever Night actions their accounts have. We can use this to test things that haven't been used yet on the main site. I plan to update the Beta site a week ahead of the main one, so whenever the main one is updated, that version has already received a week of Beta testing.

Any chance we can get things moving again?

Are there 8-10 people who are happy to play a Blitz game every 2-4 weeks? If so, I can send out messages each time so that your signups are synced up.

Aside from the fact that no one else is signing up for games (or at least not enough to get them happening), is there anything in particular that I/we can do to encourage you to give the site a go, or to sign up more regularly?
