Have you read my posts Penguin?

Actually it's weird that you didn't address my suggestion directly. Is there a reason you're avoiding interacting with me?

Your interaction with me is still not sitting right. Why are you being antagonistic and kinda putting me down. You're reminding me of the last time I suspected someone and they wrote a whole thing about how I wasn't playing well enough in an attempt to make me feel shitty and ignore they were being scummy as shit like you are.
Because I find the overall tenor of 'set-up is so swingy/unbalanced/scary' to be a waste of time and demoralizing, because I'd expect you to take five minutes and think suggestions through before posting, and I expect more interesting observations from you mixed in with the emotional stuff.
How in the seven hells do you not have any idea what my alignment is?
Because I'm not scum so I don't have a master alignment list?
Seriously, a) even if reading you was one of my top priorities I don't have enough content on seeing you interact with most of the player list, b) I usually put off reading you as I explained earlier because the question resolves itself eventually and risks lots of emotional reaction in the meantime, c) while I may be missing some magic nuances, the posting you've done thus far is pretty alignment-neutral from my perspective.

The question is why ask gamma why he suggested the mass claim, when it should be abundantly obvious. He literally said he thought it might break the game. How is that not clear?
My intention was to inquire as to how he thought it would break the game. I didn't see anything immediate to indicate such a thing was possible, so it wasn't abundantly clear to me. It's like saying 'we should colonize Mars!' and then expecting to be treated as a savant for the suggestion while having zero followthrough. I'm allowed to ask what kind of spaceships we should be building and what suggests the vistas on Mars are any better than the ones here.

Oh so Penguin, since you have done some thinking about the perils of the scum:town ratio, what are your thoughts on it? Do you think there is anything we can do? You know since you've thought about it and all.
To summarize my thoughts so far from elsewhere and a couple minor thoughts since, hypoclaiming is an option. Day One massclaim is unlikely to be helpful. As Empking (I think?) said, cop should claim if they get a guilty, but I'm trusting that said PR will determine that. My top choice for massclaiming would be for the gunsmith to decide when it makes most sense, since post-mass claim they'd have the most useful results/ability to get results. Perils of the scum:town ratio mostly just mean lynching correctly today sets the tone more than usual. For scum, they really don't want to give us a crack into their block, or at least I'd treat it more like a perilous house of cards.

Gamma Emerald, why would you want to throw in RQS at this point? Are you dissatisfied with the discourse in progress? What was your thought process that mass claiming would be useful?
--PA (I sign, nyeh)
I forgot about the mass claiming question next to the egregiousness of trying to dump us back in RQS and making Day One even more annoying. My bad.

Bleh I wish I were a normal person who had all the questions right when I read a post and not act like those kernels that pop minutes after the poppers been turned off.
If you thought it was weird that I got weird about [the setup] when the game started, wouldn't that have been enough of something for you to poke at? Why didn't you ask that before I pointed out that you hadn't interacted with me directly? Even if all I was doing was posting nonsense and nothing to poke at further, wouldn't that be the thing? Because if you thought it was weird that should have been pointed out. (On the off chance you are town and this really does read weird to you, ask your other head how often I read the setup or rules before a game starts.)
Also if you thought about the perils of the ratio, and since I was going on about it, why didn't you offer up any of your thoughts? Why did you act like you didn't know the impetus of why we were throwing out such bad ideas.
Also squared why did you ask that question of LUV in this post instead of your first one. Did you reread the game and that stuck out to you the second time?
Weird =/= scummy per se. Just alien to my mindset. And I didn't want to prolong the topic (ha!) and didn't think I needed to get super-bossy about telling you what to post/not post about. I can have opinions on it, but your reaction to those opinions is yours. At the time I didn't have anything novel to say about those ideas aside from 'no,' which seemed to be where the discussion was heading.
Yup, posted once, had more time, reread again to see if there was anything else worth poking at in the slightest, figured I'd see what kind of engagement I got. Lil Uzi Vert gave me a bad gut feeling from the greeting post, but I prefer to let that kind of gut read percolate, gather more information.

Not penguin so I'm skipping all the Tammy questions, unless some of them were directed at me. I imagine it does change things that Tammy's posts were made form the point of view of all investigative roles being one-shots. That WOULD be desperate times.
What does it change?

So then obviously definitely not on the mass claiming day one
Not the head it was directed at, but off the top of my head it seems you even said it gave you a definite opinion on not massclaiming super early where you'd thought it might be an option before? Which might suggest it make you reevaluate why people (namely, me) might be so disinclined to entertain the idea in the first place?
I think that's everything you directed to me; later stuff where you were discussing me with Nacho I think I addressed a bit in earlier posts. Let me know if you want me to elaborate, and I'll look for follow-up questions.
And hey! since you're reading this, how do you feel about Fate, as he's the other person who thinks your case on me/us merits a vote? What about Lil Uzi Vert who's agreeing with Fate (and presumably you) but not voting for us?
