For clarification of what happened: in the Mafia PT for Gameshow Mafia, momo directed insomnia to falsely claim that he was going through a family emergency in all games he is currently playing. insomnia did this. This is in clear violation of site rules in that it brings out-of-game influences to other games. momo and insomnia purposefully affected other games to gain an advantage in Gameshow mafia.

To be clear: it is expressly against site rules to conspire to post something in a game to gain an advantage in another game. Do not do this. You will get banned.

momo was abusing his position as an experienced player to convince a new player to break site rules. insomnia received a ban, albeit a less severe one, because ignorance of the rules does not excuse rulebreaking. If it is reasonable that a new player did not understand the rules, the mod team will punish them in a less severe way. Our goal is not retribution, but behavior change.

______________________________________

As an aside, on our forum it is embedded in the site culture that we trust other player's claims of IRL issues. The fact of momo's rulebreaking is made more severe due to him knowingly exploiting this gentleman's agreement. We do not accept players on this site abusing the basic decency of other players and when appropriate it will always be a contributing factor in ban decisions.

RAS and awestfie and all associated accounts (notes, quest, Lunar Eclipse, Golden RASberry, cute, Gee Gee, Chickadead) have been banned indefinitely for cheating, by requesting spectator access and giving away the spoiled info to an account in an ongoing game and using VPNs to conceal this practice from moderation. They will need to be replaced in all games they are currently in, if any.

As a reminder, please do not discuss ongoing games.
