EA Forums - Banner

CG Format - all interested please read.

I can attest that there is an inconvenience to remembering which forum account with which to sign. On the other hand, it's a little bit inconvenient to check two forums, especially if your habit is to log off.

IMHO, a big benefit to using another forum is that this EA forum is archaic in structure. Other forums (fora? ) would allow a much better thread-structure, and the "search" features are (relatively) phenomenal.

I'm curious -- if we hold the game elsewhere, you seem amenable to a password-controlled DMP. But you don't seem to want that if the game is held here. (DMP is on freeforums) I'm sure you have a reason for that difference, but can't think of what it would be.

Just because Our Resident Jerkweed with his stupendously successful fantasy life has a long established history of handling 'losing' by throwing tantrum, taking his ball and going home, or blowing up the entire game because he can't accept that he's a lousy conspiracy game player, doesn't mean that the rest of us are. Even our very youngest players are proof of that. To give him some sense of fulfillment in his desperate life, we may want a preset reply to his genius posts. "." comes to mind.



Anyway, if your game DOES end up on this forum, if you're unable to get 20 players, how about allowing players to play dual characters -- with two accounts. ... The players would be able to post under both their pseudonym and their regular forum name, at their own discretion, and at their own risk. (If they end up signed in on the wrong name at the time they post, and realize after they post that they made a mistake, and catch it quickly enough, they could go back and edit. (Which is, in itself, a different type of risk. ) )

(No matter how we do this, I'm gonna need to train myself to stop speaking in parentheses).

    I don't mind using another forum, you can just have both open in separate tabs or whatever - no big deal :-) I do think you shouldn't give the DMP password out to any non players though, cos... Well, you know. And that all happened WITH a player :? Maybe DMP shouldn't be used altogether, I don't know.

    I'm honestly happy doing any of the three options :D I'll just go with the flow.

    I voted for Option 1, but I would play in any format.

    Really don't think non players should be able to access DMP.....

    I picked option 1 too, but I could care less how the CG is hosted since I would play anyways. :mrgreen:

    Spectators would be able to access DMP if and only if they PM me on this board, and if their account ISN'T new. This is because I know Sue said she liked following along with the game, and this would allow her and others like her to view the roles if they want. Also, if anyone isn't up for playing on a different forum (like yourself, TB) but they wouldn't mind visiting to see the game play out, they could see the roles also.

    @Annette, my reasoning for not using DMP if the game was held here would be that if people are unwilling to visit another board to play, they'll likely be unwilling to visit another board for any reason, and I think it'd be a waste of time setting it up.
    Edit, also @Annette
    At least 12 players will work, if but 16-20 would definitely be preferable. If I had 12-14 I *think* the roles would be as they were in the very first game Urlaub hosted, with a single villain team of two.

    You sound awfully eager.

    Probably some time during the last week of June/first week of July, and sign up will probably be up before a week from now.

    I'd play wherever, however....another one hooked on the cg's.
    I like the idea of a DMP haven't been in a game where I got to use one yet.
    I can see the possible confusion using another account here...I can see me forgetting and using the wrong one :roll:
    I think I 'd prefer another forum if we are using pseudonyms..it will definitely add a element of fun.

    Id prefer not to have to go to a different forum because the mafia championship is starting tomorrow so I've already got an extra forum to check on, so that might make it three. If that's what it's got to be then so be it, but I'd rather keep it here than take it elsewhere, although I'd still play wherever it is to

    Barry - I do like to follow along, but I honestly think letting non-players access DMP is not a good idea. Too much could go wrong with that.

    As long as it's mobile friendly I'm fine with whatever. I HAVE a laptop and I HAVE a desktop, but I just don't use them unless I'm doing something good like ancestry.com or something.

    *mobile friendly please*
