For what it's worth these are my own thoughts on this topic, word for word.

OK. Being that there's more enthusiasm to kill this proposal than there seems to be to actually play mafia, forget it.

since I've never played a mafia before nobody will know if I'm lying or telling the truth

How about we do something Really Bloody Stupid.

This has been basically pitched way *way* back, and it ought to be a quick and silly game, so howsabout:

Twitter Mafia

Standard mafia rules except:
1. Days are 48 hours. Nights are 24 hours.
2. Posts must conform to Twitter Rules:
2a. Only the following posts are allowed: Posts with 140 or less characters, OR, Posts with up to 4 images, but not both in the same post.
2b. Players may only quote one other post in their posts using the QUOTE BBcode. Quote pyramids count as 1 quote. Quotes do not count for the word or image restriction.
2c. Players who try to screw with this system by for instance posting images of long posts may be reprimanded at the mod's discretion.
2d. No posting twice in a row, or any reason.

Roles:
I'm not sure actually. This seems like it'd work best as a small game, but there's plenty of extremely silly powers I *could* think up for it. Regardless, I'm going to just suggest a fairly vanilla setup - say, Mafia have one Saboteur ("Roleblocker") while town have a Doctor and a Cop, assuming roughly 12 players? If a lot of players sign up I'm sure I can think up enough Silly Shit for this setup. I'd love some input on this!

Edited that post to add the critical posting rule I forgot -

2d. No posting twice in a row, or any reason.

I'm up for Twitter Mafia, but I'm curious.

What's the penalty for not following one/more of those rules?

I'd probably warn on the first offense and forcibly eject from the game on the second, unless it seemed like the rule was broken on purpose in which case I'd eject instantly

Eject as in "lightning suddenly strikes and kills *player* . Carry on."

Hello? Is this thing on? Anybody there? Would anybody play if I ran a game?

What number are we even up to now?

I'd play, but I won't have a ton of time to spend on it. I think I'm done proposing games after the reaction I got last time.

Waiting until after Thanksgiving would be fine with me.

How's some Zelda flavor sound?

What reaction? And who reacted? All the mafia players are gone or banned. There's like four of us.

It's on this page and the previous. Not a big deal but personally frustrating.

Agree, there's not much interest left. Micros are probably the best we can hope for.

All ban anyone who complains about a game you nominate or run.

I can't count. You haven't actually said you wanted to play though!

I'd vote FL but he's only this aggressive when he's a power role.

Damnit, I was hoping maybe I'd forgotten the meta....
