OK Dotsie's mentioned voting for no shows in the main thread and as this was partly the cause for the disintegration of the last game, I'm putting people on notice about a test policy for early closure of the day (or night) phases in the this game.
If all posting players have voted at least once then I will ask (in this thread with a flag to read it like I've done today) after the 4th day - so e.g. 11.pm GMT Tuesday night (tomorrow) if everyone has finished voting. If at that deadline any players who have not
posted in the thread at all and are known to be posting elsewhere on the forum
I will count them as abstaining from voting in this round and I'll close the day phase early, subject to people confirming they've finished voting
If the no show(s) do this a second time I will make a 'thread-runner kill' in addition to the lynch vote and the night phase kill(s).
The player 'killed' can start posting as a gawper if they want, but that is the status they will have from that point and so their posts will have no effect in the game. If we have anybody else wanting to play then they will be offered the place if it's not been eliminated.
I think this is fair in view of the frustrations we've had with no shows previously, but pipe up if you don't agree and we'll discuss it a little more but be quick about it please.
Therefore I'm putting you all on notice that provided all of you posting players have placed at least 1 formal vote to lynch someone on the main thread by 10am GMT (London) Weds 20th Jan I will accept no further votes at that point and will close the day phase
- not sure if your suspicion falling on DJ is a formal vote, but you have about 40 hrs to confirm this/vote at least once now.
- if you're looking in, you still have a chance to vote in this day phase, but will lose it in about 40 hours time if you don't post in the main thread by the deadline shown above in red...
