UPick Queue


This thread serves to facilitate signups for both players and moderators of
UPick Games
. UPick are played in the Throne Room subforum and are moved here once completed.

The only requirement for a game to qualify for this Queue is to be a UPick game.

UPick games are divided into the following categories:
  1. Micro: Nine or fewer players
  2. Mini: Ten players or twelve-thirteen players
  3. Ideal: Eleven players
  4. Large: Fourteen or more players
In order to keep the queue organized, please keep posts relevant to the game queue and refrain from making off-topic posts in this thread. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always contact a
Listmod
.

Queue Information


Game queue:

Up to one Micro game, one game of 10 or 12+ players (Mini/Large), and one Ideal game will be available for signups at a time. Any additional games will wait in the queue in the order of moderator signup. Once a game in signups has either been filled or removed from the queue, the next game in the queue for that game size will enter signups.

Games may be removed from the queue if any of the following occur:
  • The game has been in signups without filling within two weeks if a Micro, three weeks if a Mini, four weeks if a Large, or eleven weeks if an Ideal.
  • The game has been in signups and has not filled halfway within eight days if a Micro, two weeks if a Mini, or three weeks if a Large, or eleven weeks if an Ideal.
  • The game has been in signups for 72 hours and the game moderator has not confirmed their game slot
  • The game moderator is banned from mafia games when the game goes into signups or while the game is in signups
  • The game moderator has abandoned an ongoing game while the game is in signups
  • Other situations on a case by case basis
If a game is removed from the queue, it can be immediately re-entered at the back of the queue as long as the game moderator is not currently banned from mafia games.

Queue updates:

Any games currently in signups will be listed in periodic queue update posts, along with the current playerlists. The most up-to-date queue will always be listed in these update posts.

Player Information


Requirements for joining games:

By default, there are no requirements for players joining UPick Games. However, game moderators may choose to specify additional requirements, such as a minimum amount of experience, a minimum number of games played, or requiring alts to disclose their identities to the game moderator. You can check the game description to confirm whether you are eligible to join the game.

If you're new to mafia, we generally recommend playing an Open (specifically an Approved Open setup) or Normal game first.

Joining games:

Only games that are currently in signups can be joined immediately. To join a Micro or Mini UPick game currently in signups, you need to post "/in for game name" or "/in for game moderator's name" in this thread. Posting "/in" without specifying a game in some way will not be considered a valid signup. Posting "/in" from a hydra without also confirming from all main accounts will not be considered a valid signup. To join a Large UPick game currently in signups, you need to post "/in" in the signup thread for that game,
not
in this thread.

If a game is not currently in signups, you cannot sign up for it yet, but you are encouraged to PM the moderator to "pre-in" for the game, which reserves a slot for you when it reaches signups if the game moderator has chosen to reserve slots for pre-ins.

If you change your mind after signing up for a game and before the game begins, you need to post "/out" to indicate that you no longer wish to play the game. If you have signed up for more than one game in this queue, please specify somehow which game you are removing yourself from.

Game limits:

Each player can be active in a total of only eight games of ten or more players at a time. Hydras and alt accounts count toward this limit. While it's helpful to keep track of this yourself, Listmods will have a list, and we can let you know. If a player dies in an ongoing game, that player is considered released and is free to sign up for another.

There is no limit to how many Micro games a player can be active in simultaneously (nine or fewer players). However, keep in mind that excessive flaking out or replacing out will likely result in restrictions from joining new games until a player shows they can handle playing multiple games responsibly.

Player priority:

Players can directly contact the game moderator before a game goes into signups to request a reserved slot ("pre-in"). Games are allowed to have up to half of its slots, rounded down, reserved for pre-ins. Once the game goes into signups, anyone who reserved a pre-in slot must post in the queue thread to confirm their slot within 72 hours.

All other player slots are first come, first serve. Players who sign up for a game but then decide to change their status to a hydra will be treated as if they /outed a game and then signed back up, even if doing so would bump that player from the game. This is to prevent players from being able to jump the line in a full or nearly full game.

Game moderators can reject signups from players for any reason, referred to as "Wisdom of the Mod" (WOTM). Although player blacklists will not be enforced at a listmod level, players may contact a game moderator if they have issues with other players signing up for a game. It is ultimately up to the game moderator whether they will reject signups from other players based on this information.

Hydra accounts:

A
hydra
is an account that two or more people play from but that is treated as one player slot in the game ("one body, multiple heads").

By default, hydras can enter any game entered in the UPick Queue, and must publicly declare themselves as hydras and reveal the identities of their main accounts when signing up for a game. However, game moderators can choose to change the restrictions on hydras for their game, including:
  • completely prohibiting hydras
  • setting a maximum number of hydras allowed in the game
  • setting a maximum number of hydra heads allowed in the game (either per account or collectively)
  • allowing hydras to keep the identities of their main accounts hidden from the player list and/or game moderator (note that hydras may still be required to reveal their identities at the game moderator's request later on in certain cases, i.e. if a rule infraction occurs)
A signup from a hydra isn't complete and valid until it complies with the queue rules and game moderator's rules, including confirming the hydra signup from all main accounts. Please check the game description for any additional requirements listed by the game moderator. Note that you will always be required to declare your account as a hydra and may never join as a hydra masquerading as an individual account, as this violates site rules.

Alt accounts:

Any account other than a player's main account is considered an alternate or
alt
account.

Alts are not required by default to declare themselves or reveal the identity of their main account when signing up for a game. However, game moderators may choose to require all alts to disclose their identities to the game moderator. You may also be requested to reveal the identity of your main account later on in certain cases, i.e. if a rule infraction occurs.

Moderator Information


Experience requirements:

To moderate a UPick game, you must meet the following requirements:

If the game is a Micro or Mini UPick (ten or less players, twelve to thirteen players):
  • You must have been active on this site for at least three months and have completed at least one Mafia game as a player.
  • You must have successfully moderated one Mafia game. The best queues to gain moderating experience are Mini Normals and Approved Open setups (these game types do not require any experience to moderate games).
If the game is a Large UPick (fourteen or more players):
  • You must have been active on this site for at least six months and have completed at least one Large game as a player.
  • You must have successfully moderated two Mafia games.
If the game is an Ideal UPick (eleven players):
  • You must have been active on this site for at least eleven months and have completed at least one Large game as a player.
  • You must have successfully moderated two Mafia games OR been on the site for eleven years.
If joining the moderation queue could cause you to be moderating multiple games at once, you need at least as many games of moderating experience as the number of simultaneous games you might be moderating.

If you have experience moderating offsite games, you may request these games to be considered as equivalent experience. It is up to the Listmod's discretion whether they will qualify.

Backup/co-moderator requirements:

A backup or co-mod will be required for all UPick games unless it is the only game you are running across all queues
and
your game has ten or less players or twelve to thirteen players. If this is the only game you are running across all queues and your game has ten or less players or twelve to thirteen players, a backup/co-mod is strongly recommended but not required. If your game has fourteen or more players or your game has eleven players but you haven't been on the site eleven years, a backup or co-mod is always required. If your game has eleven players and you have been on the site eleven years, a backup/co-mod is strongly recommended but not required. Backup mods/co-mods must also meet the modding requirements for the game on their own such that they would be qualified to take over in the event the original game moderator cannot continue moderating the game.

Thread access: You must make a moderator private topic in the Private Topics subforum that fully describes your setup and contains the list of roles assigned to players. If you have a backup/co-mod, you must give them access to this and all PTs you make for the game, and make them a thread moderator for your main game thread. If you do not have a backup/co-mod, you must give access to your PTs to the Listmod.

All closed setups for non-Ideal UPick games are required to be reviewed. Review is still strongly recommended for open setups, but not required. Game moderators who wish to utilize the private topic feature in order to facilitate a setup review can contact the Listmod to set one up. When advertising, game moderators should only cite reviewers who have explicitly approved the final version of the setup.

Queue/game limitations:

Game moderators can run a maximum of two games with ten or more players at a time. Game moderators must wait until they are only running one game with ten or more players before they can enter a queue for ten or more players again.

There is no limit to the number of games with nine or fewer players that a game moderator can run at a time. However, game moderators cannot enter a new game into the queue until any games they have previously queued have entered signups. This is to prevent a game moderator from taking up multiple consecutive spots in the queue when there are multiple other game moderators waiting to run games as well.

Queue responsibilities:

Players can directly contact the game moderator before a game goes into signups to request a reserved slot ("pre-in"). Games are allowed to have up to half of its slots, rounded down, reserved for pre-ins.

Once a game has entered signups, the game moderator has 72 hours to confirm their game slot and list any pre-ins in the queue thread. It is the game moderator's responsibility to make sure that players with pre-in slots confirm them within 72 hours of the game entering signups.

Game moderators can reject signups from players for any reason, referred to as "Wisdom of the Mod" (WOTM). The game moderator has final discretion over their player list.

If you are moderating an Ideal or Large UPick game, once your game has been accepted into the queue, you will be given permission to create threads in the Queue subforum, where you will need to post a separate thread for signups. You should include the information from your queue form.

Moderation activity expectations:

Moderators should create their game thread within 72 hours of receiving their playerlist, moderator access to the subforum, and game number, and start the game within 10 days of receiving their playerlist. If they fail to do so, the game will be considered abandoned. Moderators should update their games at least as often as the prod timer for their game, and if they fail to update it after triple the prod timer for their game, the Listmod may have someone else take over moderation for the game (and there will be other penalties if this happens.) You should treat moderating a game as a commitment. Note that backup moderators and co-moderators are an excellent way to avoid these scenarios. Backup/co-mods should be prepared to run the game to completion if the game moderator is unable to do so.

Other game moderator expectations:

Game moderators must follow the Rules for Mafia Game Moderators section of the Forum Rules and Guidelines.

Game elements at moderator discretion:

The following game elements can be decided at a game moderator’s discretion, and must be announced when entering the queue as part of the queue entry form:
  1. Hydra policy
    : By default, hydras can enter any game entered in the UPick Queue, and must publicly declare themselves as hydras and reveal the identities of their main accounts when signing up for a game. However, game moderators can choose to change the restrictions on hydras for their game, including:
    1. completely prohibiting hydras
    2. setting a maximum number of hydras allowed in the game
    3. setting a maximum number of hydra heads allowed in the game (either per account or collectively)
    4. allowing hydras to keep the identities of their main accounts hidden from the player list and/or game moderator (note that game moderators can still require hydras to reveal their identities later on in certain cases, i.e. if a rule infraction occurs)
  2. Alt policy
    : Alts are not required by default to declare themselves or reveal the identity of their main account when signing up for a game. However, game moderators may choose to require all alts to disclose their identities to the game moderator. Game moderators can also require alts to reveal their main account later on in certain cases, i.e. if a rule infraction occurs.
  3. Player list discretion
    : Game moderators have full discretion over their player lists, including the use of WOTM or WOTC, as well as whether they wish to consider blacklists. Game moderators should exercise this discretion over player signups by privately contacting players to let them know their signup is not being accepted. If a player does not remove their signup on their own, the game moderator may then post publicly in the queue thread to remove the player’s signup.
    1. Wisdom of the Mod (WOTM): The game moderator can choose to reject players from their player list at their own discretion.
    2. Wisdom of the Crowd (WOTC)/Blacklisting: Players can privately contact the game moderator if a player signs up after them that they will not play with. The game moderator has discretion over whether to accept the player’s signup. Generally this option requires multiple players to WOTC a player before a game moderator would choose not to accept a player’s signup, although ultimately the game moderator can decide the threshold they require in order to remove a player’s signup.
  4. Other restrictions on players
    : Game moderators can choose to require players to meet other criteria to be eligible to play, such as a minimum number of games played or an experience requirement.
  5. Requesting exceptions to site rules
    : Game moderators can request certain exceptions to the site’s mafia rules, including players being able to replace back into their slot after previously replacing out, allowing discussion of their game in other threads while it is ongoing, requesting to be able to use site users in flavor without requiring listmod review of the text, etc. Game moderators may not supersede site rules without prior Listmod approval.
Game moderators should also describe any other nonstandard elements to their setup or rules when entering the queue.

while /inning, submit to me three Chess pieces and I'll choose one to make a role for you. Fairy pieces are allowed and encouraged. In fact, pieces in any game that kind of looks vaguely chess-like are allowed, like idk, chequers or morris or shogi or whatever. Be creative.
All roles other than possibly pawn will be unique. If I can't give you a unique role based on your picks, you are a pawn.

Other:
it is time to divorce ourselves from the tyranny of individualistic thinking and embrace collectivism. each player will submit 11 picks (hi AniX). each pick should be no longer than a short sentence. get creative. i will toss in a pick of my own to round it out to an even 100. i will publicize all of the picks (including the creator of each). 9 picks will be selected and randomly assigned; you might not get your own pick, and you might not have a pick included in the game. players' alignments will be randomized before role generation. for balance, alignments will likely have an impact on setup generation.

Now that April Fool's is over, I am pleased to announce that the
UPick Queue ISN'T over
. For the rest of the month of April, it will run like a normal queue, with moderators proposing games, players /inning to those games, and firing in the normal course!

To make it OFFICIAL official, Skygazer will be taking over listmod duties for the rest of the month. Any mod who has submitted a game proposal and wants to continue to run that game proposal need only affirm their intent and their game will be slotted as normal. Users who only submitted their games as part of the jest need do nothing, but they are welcome to modify and resubmit for real.
Official Gimmick List:
INVENTOR OF UPICK!
LORD OF THE 11TH HOUR!
ASEXUAL!
KING SCAR APOLOGIST!
DREAMER OF THE NE0N DREAM (SUPP 2021 LAST PLACE WINNER)!


I have donned the
RED CROWN
