@mods: One suggestion I have: make day talk only active if at least one of the scum is a newbie. That way it doesn't hand a SE/IC or SE/SE scum team such a strong advantage, but also doesn't abandon a newbie scum to flail in the wind.

Well, for it to work the mod wouldn't tell everyone whether daytalk was on or not. Just a blurb like: "Day talk will only be active for a scum team including at least one newbie". And then have the standard 24 or 48 hours before the game starts (for N0 talk) regardless of if day talk existed.

Do newb/exp teams have outsize win %'s with day talk compared to SE/SE or SE/IC teams? Or just outsize compared to no daytalk newb/exp teams?

Or you can keep an eye out for games needing replacements, especially when the replacement is early on (first few pages) or a "people haven't picked up role pm" sort of thing.

I don't think that's a rule. From OP:

New players will probably want to start playing one game here before playing elsewhere on the site


and from
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=62103

There is no experience requirement to sign up for a Normal game. However, playing through a Newbie game is recommended.


So go for it if you think you want to give it a shot.

It sounds like you'd enjoy a lot of micro setups then. Micro opens aren't super common but non role madness micros will have more of a variety of possible roles. Or if u like "everyone has roles" stuff then look for role madness type micros.

Players can replace in as newbies. But if they're already playing in their first game they can't. If the replace would be the first game then they can. The rule is basically there to prevent instances where a player over-commits then ends up subbing out in multiple games.

Spoiler: Do not discuss ongoing games
Untrod Tripod wrote:Discussion of Ongoing Mafia Games is Not Allowed

Recently we have had a spate of people discussing ongoing games. Though this has led to a record number of ongoing game bans, there may be a perception that there is some wiggle room when it comes to discussing ongoing games. This post is to tell you that there is not.

It does not matter if you are dead.
It does not matter if you don't think it will affect a game.
It does not matter if you aren't in the game.
It does not matter if you are posting about a game taking place on another forum or posting about an MS game on another forum.
It does not matter if you are moderating the game in question.

Discussing ongoing games by quoting or otherwise referring to an ongoing game is forbidden. There is no clever way around this rule. Don't try.

If you are unsure whether something violates the rule against discussing ongoing games, please don't hesitate to contact a listmod.

THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES FOR YOU

Discussing ongoing games may result in a full game ban. This will mean that you are force replaced out of all your games, and you will not be allowed to replace back into them at the end of your ban. Further bans will be far harsher, including and up to a permanent ban from the site.

Game Moderators: Take IMMEDIATE action.

Game moderators are expected to step in and take immediate action when players discuss ongoing games in the game thread -- at least a public warning in the thread not to discuss ongoing games. This is not optional for the game moderator. You may not, as a game moderator, allow people to discuss ongoing games in your thread unless the other game allows for it explicitly in the rules.

Exceptions

There are three primary exceptions.

Communications with authorities
You may PM, IM or otherwise contact the game mod(s), listmods who aren't involved in the game, and admins who aren't in the game. Likewise, listmods and admins will sometimes discuss ongoing games for administrative purposes.

The Game Allows Outside Communication
Where a game allows communication, it may be allowed. This must be EXPLICITLY stated in the rules (and as a listmod, we'd appreciate it if game mods would give us a heads up when this is the case).

Please note that a game mod may allow communications about his or her OWN game to be discussed elsewhere, but he or she may NOT allow discussion of other ongoing games in their thread.

Discussions about Activity
Players may discuss activity in other games in a general sense, including counting how many games a player is alive in. However, this may not mention ANYTHING of substance.

OKAY: "Zoraster is alive in 4 games and is posting in those games, but he hasn't posted here in 3 days."
NOT OKAY: "Zoraster is alive in 4 games where he's posting lengthy posts. <The violation here is mentioning that the posts are LONG. This is a substantive statement.>
OKAY: "I'm alive in 3 games, and I'm having trouble keeping up with all of them."
NOT OKAY: "I'm in LYLO in a game, so that's taking a lot of my time." <The violation here is mentioning that you're in LYLO. This is a substantive statement.>


---

This isn't a hard rule to stay on the right side of the line on. The listmods would like to never have to take action again. Please don't try and toe the line on ongoing games.

If key's first modded game had problems, that may be why he didn't get approved here. Newbie game mod reqs specifically state
http://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?tit ... quirements
Must have a good overall record of moderation; first-time Newbie Game moderators are required to have a back-up moderator

If either of those requirements are not met, that would explain not getting assigned a game. Or it could just be that, just as with new IC's, new mods are taking a while to get approved.

It's actually a decently automatic process at this point.

Newbie games have:

1 mod
1 IC (teaching position)
2-3 SEs (people who are known not to be total newbies)
5-6 newbies (who could be completely newbies, merely new to the site, or somewhere in between)

The rest is just how the listmod arranges things and how she gets to the point where she sends games out.

I'd say daily should be fine. Also, slots open up in existing newbie games probably a couple a week on average so it's worth keeping an eye out for that.

Answer:

No. 1480/1481 were actually back to back perfects
1589/1594 were both perfects as well

If you throw in semi-perfect wins counting (someone is shot N1, but D1/D2 lynches are both on scum), you get:

1411/13 (both semi)
1432/5 (one semi)
1531/5 (both semi)
1634/5 (one semi - 1640 was semi too)
And you get a kind of REALLY ridiculous stretch of: 1480 (perfect), 1481 (perfect), 1482 (semi-perfect), 1484 (semi-perfect)
