Just so we do not clutter up the ban list thread and devolve into a bickering mess. I decided to start up a new thread where we could discuss and hopefully implement something that could make the hosting process easier in that we eliminate a lot of gray areas between hosts and maybe the ban list actions in themselves.
Here are some topics i would like to consider
1) Different rules about non voting, this is one of the pet peeves of mine that I want all mods to homogenize on. Rayn says this is the most important part of mafia is voting. I would agree but there are to often times where there is grey area because of how active some people are caught away at lynch time etc.
And mod killing for this probably eliminates some of the strategy scum and some town can use to draw out scum or try to hold there motivation. So I personally would like to see it eliminated from modkill territory and the ban list actions personally. We can punish people in game just as easily as in the ban list for non votes, especially when we see motivation in there actions. So whats the point of it besides to try to moderate how people play to an invisible standard we set ourselves?
2) Our asshole meta probably needs to stop. We sort of need to bring all hosts action in line when it comes to behavior. There is to often now where people can confirm themselves town because of the emotional pull they can bring. Especially when they toe the line so heavily or even go across it to proove they are town.
Basically we are almost to the point in some games where people are almost modkilling themselves to confirm themselves and its bullcrap.
We need to crack down on such behaviors even more no warnings, it doesn't matter how emotional mafia is we can still treat each other with respect even if we disagree with arguments. Other sites do it and we can as well.
Thats probably my biggest two things. But I do think we need to change several things to become a viable community again instead of dropping people like we currently are.
Well get to discussing
