Spoiler: pregame rules
here are some rules to guide you during the pregame, but please note that the precise rules for the game itself can't be finalized until the game actually starts, and that some of the rules below may change slightly!

  1. obey all site rules. you can read the site rules here.
  2. do not discuss the game in any capacity outside of this game thread.
  3. do not harass other players in this game. while a certain level of confrontation and argumentation is to be expected in the game itself, don't bring personal vendettas into the game or intentionally try to harm any player.
  4. you will receive a PM with a unique 4-letter string (example: ABCD) randomly generated using this webpage and a link to this questionnaire. you will need to enter the 4-letter string and your username to complete this questionnaire. please do so as soon as possible. failure to complete your questionnaire in a reasonable amount of time may result in your answers not being used; I will post in this thread if I need to impose a deadline for completing the questionnaire.
  5. you may discuss your responses to the questionnaire in this thread if you choose to do so, but I'm going to recommend that you don't do that too much before the game starts, because you might accidentally divulge information that could decrease your odds of winning once the game starts.
  6. once everyone has completed their questionnaire, I will begin work on putting together a setup based on the responses I've received. once that is complete, I will send you a PM with a role. you will need to respond to this PM with a brief explanation of what your role is to confirm that you have read it.
  7. do not use the color #990000.
  8. if you will be away from the site for a significant period of time, please do the following: first, update your "Vacation / Limited Access" info in the User Control Panel; second, PM me to let me know that you'll be V/LA; and third, post in the thread to let the other players know that you'll be V/LA. if the thread is locked, I will let the other players know that you are away when the thread becomes unlocked. if you will be regularly away for specific time periods (for instance, during the weekend), you only need to post that and PM me once, but please clearly state that this will be ongoing when you do so.
  9. I will not edit your posts unless your post breaks the rules in such a way that information needs to be removed from it, in which case I will replace the entire post with the text "removed by xyzzy".
  10. I reserve the right to modify these rules at any time if necessary.

  5. you should have received a PM with a role from me. you will need to respond to this PM with a brief explanation of what your role is to confirm that you have read it. if you haven't received a PM from me, let me know.
  6. do not use the color #990000.

  9. the first day will last 2 weeks, and each subsequent day will last 1 week. nights will last 48 hours, although they can end early if each player asks to end the night early.
  10. to vote, use bold text with the word "vote" followed by a colon and the username of the player you wish to vote for, or use the vote tag with the username of the player you wish to vote for inside. please use the full username of the player you are voting for.
  11. a lynch will occur once the majority number of votes are for a player, and no lynch will occur if either the majority number of votes are for no lynch or the deadline for the day passes.
  12. don't use any sort of cryptography, hidden text, or other similar methods to hide information in the game thread. this is mostly pretty straightforward, but if you're unsure whether something is acceptable, ask me.
  13. attempt to win. there's a chance you'll lose, but do your best to avoid that. deliberately throwing the game is very bad.
  14. once you are dead, do not post in this thread no matter what until the game is over.
  15. if you go 48 hours without posting, I'll send you a prod PM and post in the thread letting everyone know you've been prodded. if you fail to pick up the PM and post in the thread for 48 more hours, you will be replaced. if I need to repeatedly prod you, I may replace you earlier; I will make that clear both in your prod PM and in the thread.
  16. if you need to be replaced, let me know via PM. if you have any information you would like me to pass on to whomever replaces you (strategic advice, the complete Bee Movie script, etc), send it to me, and I will pass it on.
  17. do not quote any private correspondence with me in this thread.
  18. I reserve the right to modify these rules at any time if necessary.

Was gonna ask for a music theme, then realised that it probably wouldn't be 60s or 70s rock and would probably be Carly Rae Jepsen

Dav, I did praise you! :)

Also, don't you be hating on Carly Rae!

I chose movie/tv theme because, like davsto, im pretty sure music like Grateful Dead wouldn't be chosen.

Also, that survey was a bit personal. Am i a dog person? Im a human sir, im not a dog. I was waiting for a "Are your BMs regular?"

I feel like writing a script to continually submit responses that guess everyone's unique letters so that I can play exactly the game I want.

Also, I might have done the math wrong. Last time I took probabilities was like 7 years ago.
