Quote from MafiaScribe »-Game Limit-
Players may participate in only three games at any given time. An exception to this rule can be made by moderators in need of a replacement for a game, if no other replacement can be found.
If you no longer wish to participate in a game for any reason, contact the moderator. Do NOT attempt to force the moderator to modkill you.
-Current Game Discussion-
A player in an ongoing game may not discuss that game with any other player in that game, or in public forums. Also, it is a good idea to ask permission before discussing the game with anyone outside the game, because they can no longer replace into the game once any meaningful discussion takes place.
Unless explicitly authorized by the game moderator in their opening rules section, cryptoclaims are forbidden.
Players may not use out-of-game promises (example: I swear on my grandmother's life, I bet you my entire collection of magic cards, etc.) in an effort to influence other players.
-Multiple Players On One Account
"Hydra" accounts - multiple people playing and posting as one player with shared access to the "gimmick" account, are not allowed unless they have prior approval from the specific game Moderator. Please do not do this on your own.
-Traitor/Alignment Switching Roles
Game moderators are strongly encouraged to be extraordinarily careful if they seek to include a traitor role in their designs. These roles are notorious for causing games to implode, for creating fairness concerns, and for the challenge they pose to the town's behavioral analysis. (See Discussion in Council Thread, Post 3351, onwards.)
Quote from Forum RulesFlaming is a hostile verbal attack directed at another person or group of people. Trolling is the act of deliberately provoking a hostile reaction from other users. These actions will not be tolerated. Additionally, harassing and flaming someone via PMs may trigger more severe offenses, up to and including a suspension.
We do not recognize excuses such as "he flamed me first!"; if you feel attacked by other members, report the post and let moderators handle it rather than flame back. Similarly, if you feel that someone is trolling, just report the post/thread. Calling someone a troll also amounts to flaming/trolling.
The rule of thumb is to criticize the idea, not the person. You may think a deck is bad, and you may say so (though make it constructive), but a deck being bad doesn't make the poster an idiot. Be respectful.
Responding to other people with unwarranted hostility, picking fights and in general being a jerk to other members is also grounds for moderation. Remember, it is everyone's job to be friendly and civilized, and maintain other users' good forum experience. We want people to get along.
Quote from Mafia Subforum RulesEven though Mafia involves attacking other players, flaming is still not allowed. Please refrain from personal insults, especially personal insults coupled with profanity. Attacking another user's play (e.g. "That was an incredibly stupid vote") is acceptable.
Quote from Forum RulesImage Leeching
Image leeching is hot linking to an image (using [img] tags) that is NOT hosted on:
MTGSalvation.com (including anything starting media-dominaria.cursecdn.com)
Your own webhosting
An image uploading site like Facebook, ImageShack.us or Photobucket.com
A site that has given you express permission to hotlink
We HIGHLY suggest that all Rumor Mill posts attach images to the posts using the forums' own software. We have had cases in the past where WoTC's website was down and images were unavailable, and where Photobucket/personal image sites removed high traffic images.
If you are unsure whether a site is considered a photo hosting website, the best thing to do is upload them to MTG Salvation or your own photo hosting website account. Alternatively, you can ask a moderator.
Each player gets a 1-shot token of their role, scum share a pool of their tokens.Factional Kill.Day phases are 12 IRL days long.Night phases are 2 IRL days long.Scum have daychat and learn the unused role for falseclaiming purposes.There is no Nighttalk.This game follows a majority lynch system.Town wins when they eliminate Scum.Scum wins when they eliminate Town or when that cannot be prevented (i.e. They control the lynch.)The Ascetic has priority over the Perfect Rolestopper.The Bodyguard and Apportioner do not prevent the Lover death from the Nymphomaniac.All information given by the Oracleizer will be information that is already known to the players.

Quote from Killjoy »KoolKoal: Feel free to take this with a grain of salt since self meta isn't particularly helpful, but I think I get scumread mostly for style over substance, but also for a certain lack of substance over style. It's not so much what I AM posting most of the time (though sometimes that can seem bad) but what I'm NOT posting. I've been told I come to non-obvious conclusions a lot, so when I post, quite a bit of the time there's jumps in logic that people can't follow and they think that's scummy. I get that accusation about a lot of questions I ask specifically. People call them "busy work" when the questions are legit etc.
As far as things to ignore, I can't think of anything. I would suggest you focus less on what I'm doing and more on how I'm doing it. That's probably more likely to be accurate. Like I've just said, what I do tends to come off a little weird, but if you look for how I do it, mindset comes into play and maybe you figure out something useful.

Quote from RadiantCowbells »Hi I'm new here it is nice to meet you all
Would you all believe it's possible that I can see the future and lynch the scum once I know who they are?
If it is, do you think that that's cheating? Why or why not
Quote from RadiantCowbells »I take a very dim view of "Tom should die because he's hard to read"
and are you calling Riku lynchbait? If you can confidently townread him then why do you care just make everyone see it
Quote from RadiantCowbells »What if like sometimes I catch glimpses of the future and sometimes those glimpses of the future happen to out a wolf? Should I finish the game and Lynch the wolf and just treat it like any other read or am I obligated to sub out for game health
Like is it qualitatively different to reading based on posts?
Quote from RadiantCowbells »At any rate I wish I remembered who your partner was in my dream last whisper but I was too caught up on feeling betrayed that you invited me here and rolled wolf. What kind of terrible person invites someone to a game and rolls wolf?
It's very discourteous and I'm sure Mr. Rogers is sad at your failure to be the best you that you can be
