The new site is so much slicker than the old one. Welcome to the 2010s! :P

I don't have any reads yet because nothing has happened outside of fluff. I don't like to develop reads on fluff personally.

I agree. Clearly the only next move is to unspread all these scattered single votes.

Because reading people at this stage isn't what I'm good at. I'm better at hunting scums when things are a bit more developed and I have more information to hand.

Accuracy isn't an issue
It's better to share your thoughts whether or not you feel particularly confident.

For example I am liking sparl for town.

Then do things worth reading, if you think this isn't. The game's not going to play itself.

I find that commenting on anything at this stage, even small things, helps the game move along

Dionysus, what do you think abt my vote on you?

I actually had two questions about this post:-

1) what does "vla" mean? I asked about this earlier but I think it got lost in the shuffle.
2) you said this post was quasi-serious - did u mean the vote was quasi-serious or the vla was?

1. Vla = vacation/limited access. I was telling the mod (and everyone) that i have limited activity on fridays and saturdays as a general rule due to irl stuff

2. The vote was quasi-serious. I wanted to know if you have any thoughts/feelings abt this vote

Ah, cool. I thought as much but wasn't sure :)

Anyway, my thoughts are that the vote on me is based purely on fluff and nothing else and even if you meant it seriously, I can't really take it seriously. Come at me properly and we can talk about votes on me though.

Having re-read what little we have in the thread while I was typing this out I am not feeling Ydrasse. Encouraging inexperienced towns to spout whatever they want and to ignore the fear of posting the "wrong" thing feels like it could be subtle PR-fishing from a v experienced player ().

Is this supposed to be a question directed at me?

In any case, I hadn't considered your comment as reads on them tbh, I was referring to the comments of Ydrasse and meg. But can you elaborate about what made you have that impression?

as to encouraging people to post: the worst mistake i make people make in games is not sayi mg anything, lurking, feeling unable to contribute

i often have this feeling too! i don’t feel as if i offer a competent solve to everyone so i hold back

it hamstrings your ability to grow as a player though so i think that even if your thoughts feel goofy it’s always better to share

sometimes they’ll be perceived wrong, or wolves will push you for them, but the alternative is just... not playing and at that point it’s useless to join lol
