    2. Do not talk about ongoing games outside of the game thread (including the game’s corresponding sign up thread), unless you have received explicit permission from the game moderator to do so. If you have received permission, only talk about the game with the specified individuals during approved times through your moderator-created chat.

Additionally, do not reference private communication with the game moderator(s) in the game thread, regardless of the nature or medium of the communication, without express permission from the game moderator(s).
    4. Do not bring outside influences into the game. This not only includes alliances, wagers, bribes, threats, etc., but discussing issues such as substitutions and modkills. Discussing a player’s behavior related to previous games (‘meta’) is acceptable.

    Player Code of Conduct



    1. Treat others civilly and respectfully, even if you disagree with their opinions or actions. Critique arguments, not players. Insinuating someone is a bad player or of lesser intelligence because they reach a conclusion that differs from yours is never acceptable. While it is acceptable to judge “playstyle” in an attempt to form or fabricate a read, insulting another player’s playstyle - or that player FOR their playstyle - is not acceptable.
    2. Play with the understanding that you will likely be pushed, accused, and potentially lynched during the course of the game. Do not take such actions personally; it is the nature of the game. Additionally, do not make such actions in a personal manner.
    3. Play to win the game. It is perfectly fine to be less competitive than others, but do not actively and deliberately harm your chances to win or try to harm a teammate’s chances. By signing up for the game, you agree to play the role you are assigned, regardless of the role, alignment, or any teammates.
    4. Play within the spirit of the game. This includes, but is not limited to, the following: not using secret codes based on personal out-of-game knowledge shared by specific players, not changing your avatar or signature after receiving your role to hint at your role, and not publicly asking a moderator for clarification on mechanics. Manipulating others emotionally as an attempt to deceive them is acceptable, unless it is done in a manner that violates game/subforum rules or Code of Conduct (see for example Administrative Rule #4). Also do not carry grudges from one game to another.
    5. Do not abuse substitutions. On occasion, a situation may arise where a player is unable to meet the requirements of the game. Players in these circumstances should seek immediate replacement (in private) and remove themselves from the game thread. It is not permissible to seek, or to threaten to seek, replacement because of one’s role or alignment or in response to appropriate, in-game pressure.
    6. Mafia is a time commitment. Do not sign up to play or moderate games that you do not intend to finish without proper arrangements being made in advance. If you are observed to demonstrate a pattern of frequently signing up for and then replacing out of games, subforum moderators may approach you to discuss the issue, and you might be asked to take a break from signing up for games.


    If you believe a player has broken the rules in a game, please PM the game moderator, and if necessary, a mafia forum moderator. Do not discuss the alleged rule violation in public threads until it has been resolved by a moderator AND the game is over AND you have received permission from the moderators to do so.

    If you believe a player has broken Personality Cafe Rules, report the post using the triangle at the bottom of the offending post.


    Moderator Code of Conduct


    1. By signing up to moderate a game, you agree to abide by the rules and codes of conduct of Personality Cafe and the Mafia Forum and encourage players in your games to do the same.
    2. You must provide mafia sub-forum moderator(s) with access to all game-related QuickTopics prior to the start of your game.
    3. You are expected to treat all players in your game with respect and fairness. If a conflict arises between you and a player that you feel cannot be resolved without outside intervention, notify the subforum moderators or forum moderators as soon as possible.
    4. You are not expected to provide games that are 100% balanced, but you are expected to choose/design games that are reasonably fair and balanced, providing each player with a reasonable chance to achieve their win condition. Procedures for resolving conflicts between roles/abilities should be determined in advance, and you should follow your procedures as closely as possible.

      If you require assistance in balancing a game or determining the proper course for resolving an issue, please contact the subforum moderators.
    5. You are expected to provide each player and team with sufficient explanations of their roles, the role mechanics, and win conditions necessary to properly play their assigned role within the spirit of the setup.
    6. You are expected to respond to questions or concerns that your players may have regarding the game in a timely manner. If you know you do not have time to provide adequate attention to the needs of your game and its players, make arrangements for a comoderator to help you. If you are having difficulty finding a comoderator, contact the subforum moderators for assistance.
    7. As a moderator, you have a right to respectfully restrict players from signing up for your games. Use PMs and include mafia sub-forum moderators in the correspondence,and before you post sign ups.
    8. As long as there is no conflict with the rules of the forum and subforum, you have the right to set your own rules for your game. These rules must be in place before the start of the game and cannot be changed mid-game.
    9. You may use your discretion in how strictly you enforce your game rules. However, you are expected apply those rules in a manner that is fair and consistent across individual players and alignments in the game. Players who break the rules of the forum and subforum may be subject to additional discipline by the forum or subforum moderators, even if in-game punishment does not occur.
    10. Mafia forum moderators may choose to restrict you from moderating games on the forum - for a specified period or indefinitely - if you have demonstrated a pattern of behaviour that violates this code, the player code of conduct, or other forum rules.
    11. If you disagree with a decision or action taken by a mafia forum moderator, contact them to discuss the matter and your point of view, privately and respectfully. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of that discussion, you or the mafia forum moderator may contact a global mod/administrator for mediation in resolving the matter further.
    12. Game moderators who are permanently removed from their game will have a mandatory 1 month game ban ( that includes no playing, game submissions or game moderation )
    13. Subforum moderators reserve the right to administer punishment for any other issues that may arise not covered by these rules.
