Open Game Queue Rules:

Players:
  • To join a game, type "/in to play" or something along those lines and you'll be placed in the game that has been taking signups the longest. If there are multiple games taking signups at once, you may specify which game you'd like to play in, like so: "/in for Open 691"
  • There is no experience requirement to sign up for an Open Game. However, playing through a Newbie Game first is recommended.
  • There is no overarching policy dictating how many games you can play at once, but please consider your availability when signing up for multiple games. Games can last upwards of months, so it's important not to overcommit yourself.
  • Alt accounts and hydra accounts may sign-up at Game Moderator discretion.

Moderators:
  • To sign up to moderate an Open Game, you must have been active on the site for at least three months, and have completed at least one Mafia Game as a player.
  • Potential moderators can only be in a single modding queue (Open Game, Mini Normal, Mini Theme) at a time. Moderators must wait until the game they're running has completed before joining a queue again.
  • First time moderators will be offered a handful of Approved Open Setups to choose from to run as their first game. I will offer a selection of approved open set-ups for a first time Mod to select from.
  • Experienced mods (At least one game completed as a mod) may select from a wider range of setups on the catalogue or design and run a brand new setup.
  • If a mod wants to run their own setup it needs to be approved by an experienced reviewer. These reviews occur in the Open Setups Review thread.
  • I will allow experienced mods to run games that have been given a cursory check to make sure they are not broken but are not approved open setups. These games may be able to be broken or may be unbalanced and will be indicated as such.
  • New setups that are successful may be added to the approved catalogue for rotation on a regular basis.
  • If you do not start your game within 72 of it being filled, you will forfeit your spot as the mod of the game.
  • To sign-up, please fill out the following form and reply to the thread with it.
  • Once a game enters sign-ups, Moderators will be given access to the Open Mod Group, and a game number.
  • Moderators are in-charge of their own sign-ups. They may approve playerlists, and start their game as soon as it is filled. The Listmod will provide oversight. Playerlists should be created first come, first served, but Moderators have the right to refuse players within reason.

Game Name:
Current Modding Commitments:
Back-Up or Co-Mod: Not required, but strongly recommended
First Time Open Mod (Y/N)? If First Time Mod, you may omit the rest of the form
Link to Set-Up: You must provide a link to the open set-up you intend to use
Number of Players:
Hydrae: Will you allow hydra to sign-up?
Restrictions: Are there restrictions for who can play your game?

**Italicized items can be removed upon posting


Open Games:
  • All flavour for Open Games must be public and entirely original. Flavour based on any source material are considered Theme Games.
  • All possible role PM's for the game must be listed in the opening post somewhere.
  • Flavour is permitted within role PM's to a degree. It must, however, not change the title of particular roles (Vanilla Townies must be called Vanilla Townies and not "Ghostbusters" etc.) and duplicate roles must have the same role PM.
  • Do you have a great idea for an Open Setup? Post it in the Open Setup Ideas and Discussion thread. There are a lot of members who will review your idea, and if it's well received you may run it yourself if you're an experienced mod or possibly someone else will on your behalf.
  • I will regularly update this thread during the week, with updated signup lists being posted in the following post as well as a new post.
  • If you have a question about the Queue or Open Games in general, feel free to ask here or send me a PM.

Hi friends,

Please note that I've made a few changes to the queue rules. There are two major changes I would like to highlight. First, there is a sign-up form. There was a bottleneck in the queue created by a lack of a form. Now if you want to run a game in this queue, you fill out the form. If you are an experienced mod, I will let you run whatever set-up you would like. However, moderators who don't run quality set-ups might have this privilege revoked.

First time Moderators will be given a selection of approved set-ups to run.

The second major change is that I have automated the queue. When a game enters sign-ups, I will assign the game a number and give the Moderator access to the Open Mod Group. A moderator in the queue may keep track of their playerlists, and start their game as soon as it fills. I will still check playerlists to make sure that no one is cheating, and that the Moderators are not purposely missing players. Sign-ups should be first come, first served, although Moderators have some discretion to not allow a player to play if they wish.

There are a few people left in the queue from the previous thread, and they will be grandfathered into the queue. From here on out all Moderator sign-ups must use the form.

Thank you.

If you're Macho and someone tries to rolestop you, you never realise you're being targeted for a kill, so your machismo never gets challenged

is it still the case that there are only 2 games in sign-ups at any given time, or is it that there may be any number of games in "open" signups, so to speak?
