Someone in Medevac thought I was me being a parody of myself.

Like I've actually gone kind of meta with it at this point.

That one was literally the perfect storm of IDability, but it's also important to note that it didn't really impact how any of us played.

I mean, Matty in the jury thread pretty much said "yay I love med school!"
Back to school, back to indefinite semi-V/LA. I should still be reachable through normal means though.

This conversation came up in Skype recently, and I think there is a valid question of "how far should someone be obligated to go to hide their identity."

We all agree that there's a line at stating your username. We also all agree that the line is much more implicit than that level of explicity. Most people would say that me/Matt/Will on the LoL jury crossed the line (Brian wasn't really a part of it intentionally, he more got dragged into it). But how far should we go to hide our IDs?

For example, there are a decent number of people (myself included) who are IDable based on writing style. There are certain grammatical structures, phrasings, and punctuations that only I use as far as players on MS go. Should I be required to NEVER use any of those, lest I risk being mod-killed, because anyone who knows me decently well can ID me off of something fairly trivial in my writing? That seems fairly excessive.

What about during early game small talk, where we all talk about what we do? I already censor certain things that are pretty unique to me, but play enough games with me and you kind of know what shows I tend to go back to when people ask what I watch. Should I be required to just lie about the TV I watch randomly so that people can't ID me based on my TV watching habits? I already basically never mention in games that I play soccer or anything soccer-related because that would narrow me down to me/BBM/Radja (and we're all in super different timezones so... yeah...).

I think we have to understand that IDs will happen sometimes, but how you play wrt IDs matters.

That had little to do with me and Will IDing him.

Like Matt and I cross-ID'd each other like day 1 or 2 before any med school anything came up.

I do agree some people probably shouldn't be cast together. I don't think that people intentionally go around acting in ways based on IDs, but it's possible to subconsciously be affected (I didn't really follow what happened in Nexus so I can't speak to it). I don't know if it needs to go further than mod's discretion in future games or doing things like CC mentioned about listing players they commonly ID.

I still dunno how people ID me outside of confessionals

The only people I have ever successfully IDed are my brother, because lol, Drench, because also lol, and one time Snakes on a pure guess ("lmao what if Ekans was Snakes how funny would that be")

Also I would like to announce now that I am running Survivor: MafiaScum where your performance is determined partly by how well you impersonate the user you choose (and no picking Drench that's easy mode)

I am routinely hard to ID without personal identifiers but the problem, I think, is people who make no effort to hide ID.

It's not that hard to say "I work in retail" instead of "I work at a restaurant". It's not that hard to say "My girlfriend" instead of "My wife". etc

the people that are openly like "Hello, how do you do! My name is JOESeidon! I like to play the sports, watch gay reality shows, and look at hot guys at the gym!"

If you can't be bothered to conceal your ID on a basic level, like, come on

the grammatical stuff is harder but like just put some effort into it. drench

I actually thought it would be fun to play in a game and put on a completely different persona and typing style for each person. Some people get walls, some people get one-liners. Some people get capitalization, some don't. Then sit back and watch people compare notes.

I literally don't talk about any of these things except the hot guys part (minus the gym since I don't actually go to gyms anymore)
