Me too, but on the other side shads is right: if 20 villagers vote and half of them change their vote later, then there are like 30 posts just for voting.

right, but what does that bring to the table strategy-wise besides clutter? We have a preliminary vote system to show who everyone is going to vote for. Additionaly, this system is used as a tie-breaker, which gives incentive to use it correctly.

If your argument against the PM system is people are being too "secretive" by sending the mod their votes five minutes before the deadline, voting in the thread won't solve that. Those same secretive people will just have every vote timestamped five minutes before the deadline.

How too would you handle changing of votes? Not allowed? Some limit? Having the voting in the thread seems like more work for the Mod, since he has to read through pages of pages of threads with some junk to get the votes of all 21 people. Then, if people are indecisive he has to change that persons vote over and over again.... Seems easier to just look at your messages and see "I vote for Timbilo. Final vote" in the subject line from so and so....

i think it should be forbidden for the wolves to lie ... i mean, if u ask one and he says "no ... i´m a villager (pirate)" than the god (2mM) must kill him with a lightning (orsomething like that) ....

all that lies makes me sad

In the 2+2 games where they have voting in the thread, they decide the hangee based on a true majority rule. So, people can change their votes up until the time when half the people have voted for one player. There are not fixed time limits, the day lasts until there is a majority. An advatnage, I think, is that it avoids the situation where only 2/3 of the players vote in time and then the hangee is just the plurality of those votes. It could be the case that someone gets lynched with only 3-4 votes out of 15 players. I think this "plurality rule" gives an advantage to the wolves who can coordinate their 4 votes.

Ahh I see. Thanks for the articulation. Maybe next game we can give it a go with the thread voting.
