Schadds setups follow this same trend

They aren't obvious at the start but then you find out what it is and it's like

Wow cool

I'm like kind of working off the mediumly strong belief that schadd will literally like the word "pukebox"

I'm trying, the anime avatar is my first step!

On a more serious note, I like pukebox and understand the arguments, I like jukebox more, I'm fine with whatever schadd prefers and if he loves the former that's awesome!
pedit: pjukebox is kind of funny

If there's an underscore anywhere in the title, I'm finding the nearest pukebox and making a deposit.

Since this title didn't get the support needed during the event, not even CLOSE to getting the support needed during the event by my count:
Can we get a formal writeup of this nomination, explanation for it, etc.? And normal discussion about it. (I'll count the presented nths for it as support for it, but I want this done before I move forward with it.)


ok so medium pharma was my idea originally, to be honest the details have escaped me but i think there was a discussion somewhere (uspol? some trash thread like that) where some headass accused equinox of shilling for big pharma but like! they arent big pharma! so clearly they can only be medium pharma

In post 2070, Ariel wrote:so for the April event Zaphkael had the title "Ghost Writer." Zaphkael won Paperback Writer in 2017 and has done very in-depth written flavor for other mafia games. Also runs Fiction Rumble in GD and has been the "champion" for it multiple times. So I do think Zaph has a notable association with writing on mafiascum.net.
In post 6369, Zaphkael wrote:I'm a sucker for roles that don't have an obvious use or don't have an obviously optimal way of using them, but that can be used creatively. The neighborizers, your role, the Aeon factional abilities and even a masonry all fit this philosophy of mine, and if someone actually uses them creatively, it makes me a very happy mod. Your play was one of those things!
Based on this modding philosophy, I am going to throw out Little Did I Know as a title nom (trope reference)

Bumping this b/c Zaph didn't keep Ghost Writer, which I think sounded cool but am unsure how his writing credentials onsite relate to ghosts or ghost writing.

Little Did I Know got a few nths but not 5. The tl;dr idea behind it is that it's a writing/narration trope that ties into how he approaches modding. Going to suggest Little Did They Know this time as it being in third person might make more sense.
I really really like Little Did They Know.

Anyone want to present any counterargument?
I'm moving forward on this.

The specific number is because that's how many times the OP of the original Identity thread was edited, but the spirit of the title also captures the who-knows-how-many edits Ariel has made to the wiki. Alternatively, nominate Ariel for Too Sparkly.
Per my statement in the event thread, I'm going to give this 24 hours for anyone to present a compelling argument for why this shouldn't be given, because this is an explanation that I can get behind:
(expired on 2020-06-29 04:25:37)
Lacking any such counterargument, will re-give that title.
This has been re-given!


By my count, medium pharma has four supporters; could we get more people to chime in so I know it's more than just four who want that title?


RE: schadd_ title:
At this point, I can see the argument for all three spellings of it, and feel like it'd be appropriate to leave the decision to the person who would hold the title, so I will approve whichever schadd_ chooses, if any, of pandora's pjukebox, pandora's pukebox, and pandora's jukebox.
You have 48 hours to give me any reason not to move forward with letting schadd_ choose between the three: (expired on 2020-07-02 02:52:06)
