You mean they weren't all meant as jokes?

I don't think it's possible for me to be "too aggressive" on anything.

...Maybe that's my problem.

I consider Mafia and Survivor to be primarily different in that, in Mafia, you have to be able to persuade a group of others publicly that you're telling the truth and to convince them to believe you and work with you. In large social games like Survivor, you largely try to accomplish the same goal of getting others to believe you and work with you, but you do so privately, and generally one-on-one. Mafia's also a team game (it doesn't matter if you survive to the end, you win if your faction wins) while Survivor and the like are individual games.

Yeah, I think the idea of a group of spectators actively watching a forum game as it progresses is a foreign concept to most newbie players, and even if they're aware of the fact that there is a spectator forum, it's unlikely that they will know just how active it is or what the expected level of providing information to the spectators is. I know that if I hadn't been a spectator for LoL before playing my first game, I would have had no idea what I was expected to do in my confessional.

Having said that, I think part of the responsibility should fall on the spectators themselves to ask players questions in the confessional and encourage them to communicate before criticizing them for being boring or inactive.

A thread will be posted in this forum whenever a game is ready to accept applications. In the application you express your preference for whether you want to be a player or a spectator. The mods choose who to play in the game from the pool of those who express interest in being a player.
