Life isn’t for living, it’s for creating evidence of life to convince ourselves we’ve lived. And if all that happens while participating in a supposedly vital cultural event, then all the better.

ironstove is now banned from mafia for 180 days for ban evasion as JupiterCrush. Although ironstove is currently unbanned, he was not when JupiterCrush signed up and started playing.

ironstove and JupiterCrush must be removed from any games they are currently in.

wgeurts and ZZZX have been banned from playing mafia for 3 months after sharing their Role PMs in a private topic in Micro 585: Masochist Mafia.
This is considered cheating and it will not be tolerated. They will have to be replaced in any games they are currently in.

Given mostly legitimate confusion over what wgeurts thought to be an instruction over sitechat from the game moderator (which was in fact a joke), wgeurts and ZZZX have their punishments changed to 14 days, no new games. They may not join new games during this period.

Therefore, if you have not already replaced either of these players, you may keep them in their game rather than replace them out.


---
Please make very sure before breaking site mafia rules such as "Do not quote communications with moderators" that the game's posted rules explicitly allow this behavior. If you're a mafia moderator, please don't joke about rule breaking being allowed: we have users from many different cultures here, and sometimes those jokes can be misinterpreted.

Lil Uzi Vert is being restricted to playing only four games at a time for excessive replacing out of games.
A child believes a lie because they know no better
A grown adult sees the lie because it fails to line up with experience
In this way a child's story can be so many different experiences
With enough subtext, a thing made for a child becomes an entirely different world to an adult.

James3 has been indefinitely banned from the site for continuing to advocate for white nationalism and racism. This is immediately after he was unbanned for the same thing. In his short time here, he has advocated for Jim Crow, Apartheid, Fascism, and White Nationalism.

In addition, he was permanently banned from another mafia site where he ruined games by revealing all player and role identities.

Reasonable Doubt has been added to this list
A child believes a lie because they know no better
A grown adult sees the lie because it fails to line up with experience
In this way a child's story can be so many different experiences

zakk has been banned from the site for 14 days for attempting (and in the case of Chuck, succeeding) to get the password for other user's accounts and using it to hide his identity. He must be replaced in all games.

To be clear: sharing a hydra's password is acceptable and expected, but everyone should have their own personal mafiascum username. Do not ask or give a password to a regular account. Additionally, hiding any member's access on a hydra from the administration is not acceptable.

If someone asks you for your account password, please report this to the site moderators or administrators.

A rule has been added to make sure this is clear.

EDIT: Just to clarify, zakk did not "hack" anyone.
