It wasn't a suggestion. You claimed they weren't viewable which is incorrect. Same with mets and spoilers.

Re: WW Court Version 1 - The Deliberations

well, mods are the solution

if it's agreed that gimmicks should be banned. but I don't think any forum in 2+2 bans gimmicks outright, do they?

banned in werewolf is not out of the question. I don't know, maybe we need a poll. This is a case where I'd be happy to support whatever the majority wants with regard to werewolf, I just don't know what it is and I don't want to make up new rules unilaterally, especially around something where there is a longstanding history of legality

3. Systolic (for many many actions far worse than magic_jizz's actions over a much longer period of time)
4. mets (same as above, but with more volume and more people in his corner so it may take longer for the butthurt to clear)
I like this guy

yes

spoilers can be at times, but with the 2+2 app you would have to hit reply. and you cannot reply to a locked thread

so yes, they are really bad for phone posters

I know i do the nested spoiler bs. but i would gladly stop if it were made a rule
wasnt an explicit punishment attached to it.

Re: WW Court Version 1 - The Deliberations

Actually Gad, your willingness to ignore that failing to post for any game day is actually a rule violation in the game where it happened is annoying and hilarious. You're just trolling.

EDIT: This was explained, you know, like 55 times in this thread.

EDIT2: Also nice "human decency" in Rebellion.

I'm informing of app possibilities I'm not claiming it doesn't suck for phone posters.

Kokiri is basically always right.. even when he told me I was wrong that one time.

Yah did someone mention that in my gimmick game he didn't show up for the first day until :01 after EOD? He said it was work apparently.

how do you differentiate between a gimmick and a new account for an old poster though?

close the loopholes then. If there are no loopholes in the ironclad rules you can only abide or break them and get punished. there will be no grey areas.

But claiming to be new when you're a gimmick if low
while lying is a big part of WW, i do agree that ppl should answer truthfully about that. if only bc of the potential on new players if they aren't believed. so:

- game mods & forum mods can look into possible gimmicks before games begin
- game mods can choose to exclude gimmicks if they want
- players are required to answer truthfully about gimmick questions in-game (yes/no)
- players aren't required to out gimmicks in-game if they don't want to (their main account)
- other players can choose to skip such games if this is not acceptable to them

good, or no good?
