    Chitchat, Suggestions and Info - a MAFIA discussion thread

    Hope I ain't stepping on toes doing this. Just thought it'd be fun to generate some general conversation as I think Mafia is growing on this site and it's helping bring posters together, especially some posters that otherwise wouldn't interact at all. So it's just for suggestions, general info and feedback to try and improve the game for us all! Note - the last three games have been cracking but we can always make it better. I'll start it off.

    Completed Games
    Wrestling Clique ran by The Golden One
    Mafia Victory (Postman Dave)
    Independent Survival (Nicky Talent)


    Werewolf ran by Jiggy
    Independent Victory (Jon Snow)

    Psycho Killer ran by Jiggy
    Mafia Victory (Tig, Wang Chang & Coxatron)

    Who attacked Vinny Mac? ran by Shake
    Town Victory (Jon Snow, Coxatron, Silk, Postman Dave & Creeping Death)

    Harry Potter ran by The Golden One
    Mafia Victory (PS & Noctis)

    WCW vs nWo ran by Jiggy
    Town Victory (PS, Dak, Nicky Talent, Blissfully Aware, Coxatron, Business Wolf & Silk)

    Avengers: Secret Invasion ran by Silk
    Town Victory (Fuji Vice, Jiggy, Business Wolf, The Reagmaster, Sayer, Cyrus Truth, Jimmy King & Wang Chung)

    Village ran by The Golden One
    Town Victory (Jon Snow, Dook & The Reagmaster)

    The TV Show Multiverse by Cocksatron
    Town Victory (Dook, Coxatron, Creeping Death, Silk, In Progress & The Grange)

    Degrassi: MAFIA GENERATION by In Progress
    Mafia Victory (Dook & Jiggy)

    I honestly think the rage-quitting is super stupid. I've been one vote away from a lynch in every game I've played in and I've never been lynched. Talk your way out of it or at least try.

    The wagering stuff I was guilty of last game but looking back it's cheap and it's not really playing the game in it's purest form.

    Rage quit should be a ban for all future games, not just the next one.

    Also, I think you're missing a completed game before werewolf.

    Aye, I thought that man, must be in Vip.

    Also personally I'd make it a perma-ban but I can see why people would think it's slightly harsh. Kert for example, was a first-timer to the game and got caught up in it. Grim should've known better.

    Don't know about the logistics of it but it'd be cool to have a thread where non-players can communicate and speculate on the game. Obviously it'd be hidden from the active players. Hell, even when a player dies he could go here to chat about the ongoing game. Seems quite a few people have been observing and not playing.

    yeah i was saying when i got brutally murdered that a shoutbox for dead players to reflect would be fun. Idk how they'd be able to do it without it being a hassle tho.

    It'd be too difficult I imagine. Ed and Nash would have to make a subforum or something that's hidden from everyone for a discussion thread then you have the fact that they'd constantly have to change permissions as to who can see it based on who lives or dies. It sounds like it'd be a pain in the ass to constantly be changing shit.

    I read the last game from start to finish. Really enjoyed the mud-slinging and finger pointing.

    I like the idea of a TV variant. Something like Who Shot Mr Burns would be great to participate in or read and would also be easy to write out the characters.

    The non playing discussion thread would be cool as I had theories I couldn't state to anyone

    I think it's up to the next game's moderator if previously rage quitting should equal a no-play for the next game.

    As for my game, if you vote for yourself, it'll be an auto mod kill because that's a bush league play.

    Yeah well fuck u buddy I was Charlie Day and I quit.

    Seriously though, gotta leave the rage quitting up to the mod as TGO says but I'm down with a full ban on wagering because it's just the worst.

    I'd love to play, but I'm not sure my schedule would permit it, so I'll keep watching the threads. I'm thinking a superhero one could work well.

    Full ban on wagering for sure.

    A discussion thread could just be a secondary thread for those not involved. Honor system working here but we use the honor system as is to trust people not to pm out of bounds. And to enforce you could auto mod kill anyone in there that shouldn't be if discovered. And let the other players police it by screenshotting someone still in the game in the thread. Fuji and silk have super powers so they could probably see invisible people trying to be shady. And also set a rule that you MUST BE visible in order to play to alleviate the people trying to scoop the discussion thread.

    If you're gonna sign up don't be a jabroni and scope that thread. Defeats the point of playing.

    That's depending way too much on people not reading IMO.

    I can see invisible people and who's browsing threads and when and shit too but honestly, there's just no way around it other than making a hidden subsection with a constantly changing list of 'allowed' players.

    True but like I said we can't track people pming and have to trust people there. This is no different. So there's at least failsafes for catching people for sure. And I think it'd be fairly obvious if someone is scoping out that thread too if they suddenly start using similar theories and shit.

    A subforum with permissions that needed constantly updated on the fly sounds like more work imo

    Yeah fair enough would probably be a lot of upkeep. Integrity, strangely, is what keeps the game pure.

    Re: Chitchat, Suggestions and Info - a MAFIA discussion thread

    I'm pretty sure that a smod or a mod would have to open a thread to check who has viewed it btw, Cox. What happens if they're all currently involved in the game? IT BECOMES SCHRODINGERS THREAD... EVERYONE AND NO ONE HAS READ IT


    As far as PMing goes - that's true. but at least it's kept to PMs and out of the public eye if that shit goes on. Imagine I was posting in a thread and pretty much wrote out how the mafia should play - there's nothing to say someone who was mafia but died couldnt just PM that strategy to their ex teammates and so on.

    It's a weird gray area.

    For sure but just make it a painful punishment. If you're caught in that thread while still playing then you're permanently banned from future games. The people in that thread will know who's still in the game and if they see someone in there screenshotting and pm the mod. Honestly since the word game forum is the only place this can be maybe just mod you and tgo as well here. That way whoever is running the game has the ability to check the thread and see if anyone is being a bitchnuts.

    Re: Chitchat, Suggestions and Info - a MAFIA discussion thread

    Does anyone have a preference for the next game?

    It'll either be Harry Potter, horror movie, or "village." HP and horror movie are more theme-based. Village will be a bit different from what everyone is used to, which could be awesome or could irk people. I don't know anything about Mass Effect so I can't mod it.

    Sign-up thread will be posted this afternoon.
