Default game 9 issue

so now that its over.

the pm garso sent me was one word in green.

villager

expopcorns first post was:

Quote:
#sigh# villager again.

Good luck all.
coincidence, subconscious, or intentional, it doesn't take much to infer something from that. i'm aware that green is the universal villager color. but i've never seen it used outside of naming people. if there was a previous common usage of villager in green, i haven't seen it.

perhaps some type of stated uniformity in pm'ing the roles might be in order?

the amusing part was acehole, who was the seer, noted the color reference immediately. as a shady user of tomfoolery, i assumed he had spotted it. but he was just making a joke.

either way, its tough to act like i didn't see it after it was posted. and everything stems from there. ironically, the other 3 people most likely to notice this, acehole/kc/swoop were all non-villagers.

Ya, in this instance I don't think any rules were broken, as it's common knowledge that villager is green in pms. It's also common for people to say something like:

present, villager.

So meh.

But I'd be for having it standard that god simply posts as the beginning of the game what all pms looked like so people can't use them for anything devious, intentionally or not.

I would just like to say that there was nothing deliberate about this.

I think I would have made a very similar post whatever my role.

In fact in this game it would have been very easy to fake as I would bet that the wolf pm was

wolf

In this game it can be very easy to see things that aren't there in posts.

I think to prevent this the roles should be given with one word and no colour. This leaves no room for manipulation/misunderstanding in the game.

Yeah, it's standard to use colours like that. Last 2 games God has said no using red except to vote but otherwise colours are clean.

So the thing why i allowed shendo to amswer to this was that i didn't think it was any advantage to anybody. Who was not able to figure ou that every role was sent out color coded should be hung imediately. So i never saw broken rules or advantages. Shendo pmed me abpout rule breaking by expopcorn and i allowed him to post whatever he wants because i didn't see how this could be an advantage to anybody as this could be faked anyways.

coincidental or not, i assumed kc and swoop would have picked up on this too. which is why i figured they were likely wolf candidates.

i actually saw what you posted as being a violation of the rules. otoh, i don't care for the no posting PMs rule, god's PMs are part of the game, therefore they are part of the bubble in which it is played. if god puts something in his PM that can be exploited, god fucked up, imo.

You know what would be fun to do as god?

Make a game with no wolves and really fuck with the village, then randomly kill someone every night and pretend a wolf did it



Okay, perhaps I shouldn't be allowed to play god in this game
