List of a few things I'd like articles on, even if they are short stubs:
  • Player: A person who is playing (rather than moderating) in a Mafia Game.
    (I mean I know it might sound ridiculous but I think it has use. We have an article on Game Moderator; why not one on a Player?)
  • Logic: A process of objective reasoning.
    (I have numerous reasons for wanting something like this. We have a category for Logical Fallacies, which is basically "flawed logic", but we don't have an article on what Logic actually is.)
  • Gut: Something based off of instinct rather than hard fact.
    (I mean this isn't the definition *I* would use for Gut, but it's the definition most people hold for Gut. We lack an article on it currently and it is absolutely shameful that the mafiascum wiki lacks an article on one of THE most fundamental things spanning across every site which plays mafia.)
  • Reads: A player's given perspective on other players.
  • Readslist: A form of a player revealing their reads on other players.
  • Scumread: A player holding the opinion of someone being scum.
  • Townread: A player holding the opinion of a player being town.
  • Null: An action or read which is neither town nor scum.
    (We don't have an article on ANY of these?!? Why the fuck not?)
  • Wallposter: A player who frequently or entirely posts in Walls.
  • Spamposter: A player who frequently or entirely posts many shorter posts, the opposite of wallposting.
  • Objective/Objectivity: Without bias of opinion; using nothing but undeniable facts/truth.
  • Subjective/Subjectivity: Using personal bias/opinion; interpretation using assumptions that are not undeniable.
  • Not Alignment Indicative: AKA, NAI. Something which holds no bearing to alignment.
    (AKA, the people who are too new to know that's what null means using different slang. :P)
I mean, most of these definitions are pretty crappy, but they'd be better than literally nothing, which is what we have on ALL of the above right now.

For that matter,
  • Game Moderator: We could use alternative terminology here. "Narrator" and "Host", among others, are common alternative terms for Game Moderator used on other sites, and I feel listing them as alternative names somewhere on the page itself (maybe they exist as redirects, but I think we can do better than that) would be useful.
  • Mafia: It could probably be made clearer that this page is for the faction simply by changing the title (if that's viable) to "Mafia (faction)". Furthermore, we have a page called scum, which could be linked on there but currently is not. Additionally, and this is actually my main gripe: "Mafiate" is a commonly used term, even more so than "Mafioso", yet it is not listed as a term on the page.
  • We have a page for "scumtell" and "towntell", but no generic page for just "tell", which I think would be useful.

I think the idea is to have a page that just explains what a readlist is, rather than a guide on how to make one.

Yeah, that is what I meant. Readslist as a concept (which is common and used on almost every site which plays mafia), not readlist as a specific theory (which is opinionated).

As long as we are making requests for articles, I think it would be good to have an advanced article on Timing per Content. So much can be said based on when it is said and what is said. Out of the few players I know, players like Transcend and Firebringer seem to be good at this. Their minimalist approach lends it self to good timing sometimes even more that what is even said. I'm sure there are plenty of people who could do this article.

Because it takes literally a sentence to explain and having twenty sentence-long articles which are hardly difficult to figure out anyway (I mean townread, seriously?) is a horrific waste of space.

If you really think it's such a big deal, then maybe there should be a "definitions" or "slang" page which has all that kind of stuff on and that you are redirected to when you search any of those terms

But "full" articles (I say "full" because most of them would either be single sentences or just painfully repetitious) for the vast majority of them would be a total waste, especially when some (player, spamposter, townread) are fairly self-explanatory, and others (objectivity, logic) are literally just real, dictionary words which are hardly different in Mafia than in any other situation.

Many of the articles posted in MD likely will be added to the wiki in the future, and there's talk of an article competition much like the setup design contest in the future.

I have also just noticed this and want to lodge a complaint.

Or request edit access again so i can turn it into something resembling a normal page again.

It received admin only level protection after it was reversed previously.

I'd rather it just work how it's supposed to again, but i assume it's broken since we upgraded the wiki.

If i actually had content for the page right now i would just take the redirect off the user: cheery dog one
