Ugh, RQS is a waste of time. RVS is so much better. :roll:

Is that a joke post, or your legitimate feelings?

Dude, you're like the most adorable derp... You and I just played a game together, remember? It ended like 20 hours ago.

Yeah but I subbed in.

So you are joking then.

Will you answer the original questions now?

I just got news that a good friend passed, so I might be afk a bit tonight. Sorry. Or maybe I'll be no filter posting we'll see.

Random non-game-related questions are an easy way to fake content. So, no, they're beyond useless and actively scummy. They should not be humoured, especially when they appear tangentially game related since that just makes it easier to disguise that they aren't a form of scum hunting.

If it's just an OOC joke then don't bother explaining I don't care about those.

Boring has only played scum games so far and if I remember correctly she won all of them. I was even present for the latter part of one.

Alright, let's see.
Zoronos wrote:Oh man my first game in like a year.
Now I have to remember how to play.

Awkward first post, the sort of typical scum who feels like they should say something but can't think of anything to say.

eagerSnake wrote:Might as well tell you guys now I have the Ascetic modifier so don't waste actions on me.

This feels reeeeeeally like a scummy claim to me. Pings me really very hard. Feels like a mafia ascetic trying to act like a town ascetic. It also doesn't necessarily reduce the negative effect of ascetic to claim it, as, if town, eagerSnake is now a free nightkill if scum want to kill him.

Gamma's reaction to the claim is town. is not; calling it interesting without giving any comment on what it makes them think of eager's alignment is scummy, and it follows the trend set by their RVS in that it's very empty commentary that feels like scum saying things for the sake of saying things.

Zoronos' to me is potentially indicative that he's saying these things because he's bored but I feel like if he was bored town he would at least try to analyze the ascetic claim a bit beyond calling it "interesting."

That's it for up until my last post, gonna split this here to avoid wallposting too early.

Grendel's opening post is also potentially scummy.
Grendel wrote:Anybody up for some questions?

I've been finishing up a new set I want to use.

Why not just ask the questions? This seems unnecessarily roundabout.

Grendel wrote:If its cool I'd like you all to leave me to analyze them,

If this is non-sarcastic then I'm holding you to this - I'd like to hear what actual alignment-indicative or otherwise useful content you're getting out of these questions.

Also of all games to feel like you need to force an RQS or RVS, this is a very silly one. We have a claim. On page one. An unusual one at that. We have a goldmine of material to analyze already - why do you feel the need to instigate an RQS? RQS and RVS as they're usually conceived are both kind of outdated anyway. There's usually enough substance in the first few posts to get reads that are legitimate enough to argue about, even if they're very unstable.

Zoronos, you're implying a scumread on Grendel; why not follow it up with a vote?

A number of reasons.

Saying an ascetic claim is scummy is foolish; it is strictly non alignment determining. If you are town, you claim it to avoid wasting an NA. If you are scum, you claim it to avoid a cop hit.

I usually try to form a good town-block and then consider the best scum-hunter of the block as the wise elder

Because I don't vote the instant I have an inkling of suspicion. Or moreover, because the simple act of asking the questions isn't necessarily scum play. Using the questions as a sole form of contribution on the other hand is (which doesn't necessarily mean Grendel, a townie putting down that kind of list gives the scum room to dwell on it to contribute, so it isn't even that Grendel is scum for doing it, it's just pro-scum to exist). So yes, I'd rather take the hard line early and nip camouflaging play in the bud.

Or maybe these boards don't have a conception of 'fake content' or maybe I'm using the wrong jargon to explain the idea. If I'm unclear, well.

They do, and as people do things I feel are townish I try to form a town-block out of those people

I applaud the sentiment if it's genuine, but how do you intend to build a townblock in one day? You're either going to be NK'd for being conf. town, or you're going to survive the night, and anyone you'd want for your town block will have a healthy dose of distrust for you. I think you might have to table that plan for now.

It's OK; I'm not afraid to die, or afraid of people having distrust of me.
