Quote from Prophylaxis »OK GUYS THIS IS HAPPENING.
I have a couple of hours to myself and an Evernote note opened. If I don't have this out by the end of the day burn me at the stake.
Quote from Grapefruit21 »And I'm permanently paranoid about getting pocketed. Our fearless moderator has a lot to do with that...
Quote from Grapefruit21 »So a general question on angleshooting. Once you notice something like an out of order replacement it's hard not to think about why. Is it a situation where it's okay to have it inform you because you can't completely control that, but not to share in the thread and try to influence others based on it?
Quote from Prophylaxis »The first is flavor. Not going to sugar-coat it, I bailed on this one quite heavily. I was envisioning this game to have moderate flavor around the Lord Ruler dying and finding the assailants, but I just dropped the ball on flavor because, as I said, I had little time AND I was not passionate enough about moderating the game. So I really do apologize, especially since I’ve said in the past that flavor is critical to making a good game great. This also applies to not being as timely with votecounts/responses/etc in this game. I simply just was not passionate enough about being a good mod, so I let those duties slip by.
Quote from Proph »The next is angleshooting, which I have a lot to say on but it’s 1 AM in the morning and I need to finish this. Basically, I’m a big proponent of interfering with the gamestate as little as possible as a mod. Since I’d already modkilled Gruffinchops for failing to find a replacement, I was not keen on making any more gamestate changes. The angleshooting that was brought to my attention were:
1) Cantrip directly requesting that I not end the Day
2) JoeTerry drunk posting/making avatar bets based on Rhand’s flip/saying that he’ll /out with any game Cyan is in/talking about being OK with being modkilled
3) The “I’ll never play with you again” posts
4) Cyan threatening to push a ban on Terry
5) Grapefruit generating a read on Newcomb based on how often the slot was replaced
Quote from TheRealStinkyJoeTerry »[*][b]Flavor Cop[/b]: I don't really get how this equates to an IC. Also, flavor seemed to not mater at all, even was a bit deceptive if anything.[/list]
