Blitz Queue
Trial Period: November 1 - January 31

Blitz games use Day deadlines of no more than 96 hours and Night deadlines of no more than 48 hours and are run in Blitz Games Trial. Alternative deadline systems may be used with list moderator approval. This queue is for games in sign-ups. If you have a question about a currently running game, please PM me. For more information about the Blitz Queue trial run, please consult this thread.

PlayersSigning Up for a Game - Please post in this thread (e.g., "/in" or "/in for zoraster's game") to be added to the next game. The moderator of the game taking sign-ups will be keeping track of player sign-ups.

Player Requirements - There is no experience requirement to sign up for a Blitz. However, moderators are allowed to have sign-up restrictions for their games, and they may deny any sign-up at their discretion.

Post-Game Surveys - Players and moderators may be contacted after a Blitz game has ended for their feedback regarding the game, the moderator(s), and the Blitz Queue. Participation is voluntary. Anonymized data will be made available to site staff in order to discuss the results of this trial run. If you wish to opt out of all surveys, please PM me.

ModeratorsExperience Requirements - To sign up to moderate a Blitz with 13 or fewer players, you must have successfully moderated one Mini Normal or Open Game. To sign up to moderate a Blitz with 14 or more players, you must have successfully moderated two games or the equivalent. If you have experience moderating on other sites, you may request those games to count as your game of experience; please contact mith. You must still have been active on the site for at least three months and have completed playing at least one Mafia game.

Signing Up to Run a Game - Please send a PM to Equinox with the following information to be added to the moderator queue:

    Planned title of the game:
    Game type:
    Number of players:
    Reviewer(s) who have given explicit, final approval:
Moderators should have completed reviews and written their opening posts and role PMs before entering the queue.

Game Limits - Moderators can run only one Blitz game at a time. Moderators must wait until the game they are moderating is completed before joining the queue again.

Pre-/in Limits - You may have up to 67% of your player slots, rounded down, filled by pre-/in sign-ups.

Setup Review Requirements - Submitting your game setup to a reviewer is required. Approved or experimental open setups that have received reviews are exempt from this requirement. Effective November 30, Normal setups must be reviewed for Normalcy by the Normal Review Group. Moderators wishing to utilize the private topics feature for their setup reviews should contact me to receive access. Moderators should only list reviewers who have explicitly approved the final version of their setup.

Game Threads - Moderators have 24 hours from the time sign-ups are full to begin their games. For games where the mechanic requires a design phase, games must start within 72 hours. It is very helpful if your first post stays up to date (even after the game is completed) with players who are dead and alive. We like to have a record of how games have finished.

Post-Game Surveys - Players and moderators may be contacted after a Blitz game has ended for their feedback regarding the game, the moderator(s), and the Blitz Queue. Participation is voluntary. Anonymized data will be made available to site staff in order to discuss the results of this trial run. Summary data is available to game moderators on request. If you wish to opt out of all surveys, please PM me.

ResourcesBlitz Queue Trial Announcement - The original announcement of the Blitz Queue trial run, which contains important information about moderator expectations. Moderators must consult this thread before running their games!
A Queue for Games with Short Deadlines? - The original discussion thread for the Blitz Queue.
Setup Review Thread - A thread in Mafia Discussion where moderators can request reviewers to check their games for balance and playability.

Welcome (back) to the trial edition of the Blitz Queue!

This thread is now open for players to sign up for games. The way this will work is that game moderators will keep track of sign-ups for their games and, when they fill, launch those games within provided deadlines. The opening post has been edited to include guidelines for players. Abridged for people on the go:

  1. Players can post "/in" in any form to join a game. There is no experience requirement to play a Blitz game, but specific games may have restrictions or requirements on who may join.
  2. Moderators who wish to run a game should send me a PM with their game application, which can be found in the opening post, in order to be added to the queue.
  3. Players and moderators may be sent a five-minute post-game survey requesting feedback on the game, the moderator, and the Blitz Queue.
All of the moderators in the queue have been granted privileges in the Blitz Games Trial forum. As soon as Rob13's game is filled, fferyllt's game will take sign-ups. Please do not jump the line because it won't end well. For now, only one game will be taking sign-ups at a time.

As usual, egosearch posts will be terminated with extreme prejudice. Don't test me. Post a joke if your fingers itch that badly.
revise and resubmit

My pre-ins are:

Firebringer
Ythan
Vedith
EspeciallyTheLies

So there are 8 spots left for those interested in being part of the first Blitz game. :)

A guy was in a cave, looking for treasure. He found an old lamp, rubbed it, and a genie came out. The genie said "I will grant you three wishes, but your ex-wife will get double." The man agreed, and said "I wish I had a mansion." The genie granted it, and his ex-wife got two mansions. The man said "I would like a million dollars." The genie again granted it and his ex-wife got two million dollars. Then the man said, "Scare me half to death."



Q: How many idiots does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: 500, 1 to hold the light bulb and 499 to turn the house.



Q: What do you do when 50 zombies surround your house?
A: Hope it’s Halloween.

Didn't expect the queue to fill up that fast. Will be busy for the next few days, so it'll be too risky to in.
