    Welcome to Game mod 101

    Good Day everyone. Welcome to Game mod 101. Pain and I will be hosting this, with questions and discussions.
    Its being run now as the next regular game in the que cant run until February.

    So lets begin

    Module 1 The mod qt:aka mission control. The place where all
    decisions are discussed and actions posted. Sub-forum mods and others need to know how you got from point a to point b. Its a paper trail where anyone can read it and follow along. Best to have too much info than too little

    What needs to be in there:

    1. links to all qts
    2. vote counts or links to them in the game thread
    3. countdown timer
    4. flavor
    5. discussion related to anything that requires an action by the mods or the subforum mods
    a.) disciplinary actions.
    b) re-rand.
    c) calling a game.
    d) closing threads
    e) replacements.
    f.night actions ( if not a separate qt) and conflicts
    g.game ending.

    How do you decide when it's necessary to call a game?

    The major one and the one that we have seen here is when players alignments have been revealed. This means a player outing all of his/her scum/mason mates.


    Or if there were mod errors that impacts win-cons; eg Night action errors, vote count mistakes leading to the wrong player being lynched n/k

    Now if its early in the game, a re-rand is possible.

    Also if there are major fights leading to nasty grams, and hostility. This is rare as the game mods should be on top of things.But alot could happen in a short-time.

    Vote counts:

    Vote counts should be done regularly and in a timely fashion. What that means in real terms is somewhat variable - if you've been gone for three hours and come back to 200 posts, there's a good chance you need a vote count, even if very little has changed. If you come back to 20 posts and no votes, it's not necessary. If you come back to 20 posts and multiple votes, go ahead and do the vote count.

    Even in a slow game you ought to have one at least every twelve hours or so, just so players know that you are around and monitoring the thread. If you can't be around that often, make sure your comod can be around.

    You will almost always need to do vote counts more closely together towards end of day as players are finalizing their votes, so plan your phase change times accordingly.

    It's fine to allow players to notify you of mistakes in thread or by PM. Keeps everything in one place.

    It's a good idea to include the timer, plus any reminders of twilight rules - is there a twilight, is the timer to end of day or to twilight, is talking allowed in twilight, etc.

    What do you think is the quickest and most efficient method of doing a VC?

    The easiest way for me is when I'm at a computer - go to my last vote count, quote it in one tab (remove quote formatting), then skim from there to the end looking for votes and manually updating as I go.

    If I'm gonna be out somewhere doing one on phone, I keep a notepad to write them down as I go.

    Honestly vote counts are a weak spot for me, so I would like to hear from others on this.

    Computer/laptop:

    Go to most recent VC. Remember the post# of the most recent VC. Control+F searching for the word 'vote' or ideally '<<' if that's part of the voting requirements, and then just write down on notepad all votes you come across to by typing 'dizzy votes ashes'. If Dizzy has made multiple votes by this VC catch up, then erase the less recent ones from the notepad. Make sure to get rid of Dizzy's vote on the most recent VC, and put his most recent vote change where it should be. This all by quoting and adjusting the most recent VC post, of course.

    lol. Next time I play a @Dyslexicon game I'm going to cause a massive CFD every day, just so he has to count it.

    awesome, thanks for the feedback. I've been doing Ctrl+F but keeping track of it on the thread, which isn't very effective. I'll do notepad next time.

    What I like to do for a VC is quote the last vote count and every vote after, then I click reply to thread and then go advanced so I can look at them all together.
