First of all, if I'll be selected as Mayor, I'm planning on lynching someone who's extremely suspicious, if there is one. Because it is highly unlikely for there to be a really suspicious red this early in the game(even if this is the newbies' game), there are other options. Even if day 1 clues can't really be put too much emphasis on, if they point at a relatively suspicious person, that person would be high on my lynching list. That's basically how I'm planning on using the day 1's clues; As a support for suspicious people, and also as a support for future clues. In the case there is absolutely no one suspicious(highly unlikely), I will think about it according to the situation, most likely someone relatively inactive.
I don't believe in relying primarily on the day 1 clues to lynch someone, since they're normally way too vague to be able to fully determine a mafia just by analysing them. We could all see what happened with Pyrr's analysis in Chuiu's last Mafia.
In the case that I'll be elected as the town's Sheriff, I'll only be able to incarcenate 2 people, which is quite low. I'm planning on using my incarceration ability to incarcerate either
1. A good player I believe to be a townie that I believe for whatever reason won't receive the medic protection he would require in order to survive the night(This is the most likely use) or
2. In the case that the town has figured out at least 2 surefire Mafia, but we only have a single lynch available. Now, if the incarceration would reduce Mafia's firepower, I think it might be a good idea to incarcerate the other Mafia and lynching the other, and then lynching the incarcerated Mafia the next day. However, this will be rarer, and I will more likely be using the incarceration to just protect the good players who require it.
My voting policy is to mostly vote for the people the town wants dead, assuming it makes sense. I will not fall for stupid bandwagons, and will try to make the town come to it's senses. I might abstain from voting as well, if there is no one I see as highly suspicious or if I believe my vote won't be needed, however, that should be rare. I will always follow logic, and will not make too hasty decisions. I will generally vote for a suspicious player who can be connected to clues.
However, I'll be wary of Mafia attempting to make the clues seem to point at someone they obviously are not. I will also be suspicious of everyone except confirmed townies, especially bandwagon starters and people acting inconsistantly. If there are no good targets for lynch, I might have to abstain, or possibly vote for an inactive who is acting fishy.
My information policy is to tell mostly everything to everyone, unless it is information that would benefit Mafia. I will generally not send many PM's and I won't reveal my role to anyone. I also suggest everyone to not reveal their role to me or anyone else, regardless of if I am going to be elected or not. However, sometimes PMing might be necessary in order to keep information from Mafia, but I'm still planning on doing it the absolute, bare minimum.
My experience with Mafia is limited to watching the past 2 games and I'm also following Mafia VIII closely. I haven't personally player any Mafia games, except a few very small ones with my school class a while back.
I would say that my strong point would be behavioral analysis and logic, and also finding logic in others and where it should be when it's not. For example, I was able to figure out that Qatol was Mafia in the last game quite early on(Then again, who couldn't?). I'm not all that confident about my skill at analysing clues, though. Even though in the last game I was able to figure something out and some things made sense, in Chuiu's game before that, I didn't get almost any of the clues even after they were revealed. That's why, even though I'm going to do my best in clue analysing, I'm planning on mostly leaving it for others to handle.
I also know how people acted in the past few Mafia games somewhat, so that might be able to help me figure out who is being inconsistant with their behavior. I am going to make my decisions logically and I am going to think and consider every situation calmly. However, I am able to use slightly stronger language in order to get my point accross when it's needed.
I started running for office partly because that was my plan even before the game started, and partly because I wasn't happy at all with the other people's platform's.
Jimtudor's platform is essentially "I'm good at everything, although you know nothing of me, and I won't tell you what I'm going to do, but we'll kill all reds", which is less than satisfactory, even if the anti-red talk might sound nice and all.
iLoveKTF's platform seems slightly bette... actually, no it doesn't. He's just telling who he'd lynch if he was selected as mayor, and that's that, even disregarding the role of sheriff completely. Even if he did play well as a medic in the last game, that doesn't mean that he can simply run for office without a platform whatsoever. Also, I absolutely detest the picture he stole from Caller.
For now, all I'm going to ask for everyone is to vote, be it for me or anyone else. It's all we have, so be sure to use your power wisely.
