Reasons aside it would have given me something to respond to beyond the "not much infos to be had around here" situation which we had at that time, and (possibly) more people would've replied or felt inclined to reply(To us/our posts directly, or indirectly through commenting about our posts to each other.) in some capacity as we kept at it.
At the very least it would've helped with the boredom.......*yawn*.........hmm, where was I again? Oh yes......REPLY to me if you want to....don't hold back man. :)
Yeah, but that's something I didn't want to happen. It would just become ping-pong between us and it wouldn't most likely help the game progress at all. On the other hand, yes, I could respond just to have something, even irrelevant, going on.
People could be trying to keep themselves and whatever roles(If any) that they have close to their chests as long as possible using this and other methods. Or they could just be lazy or have IRL issues to deal with. If at all possible, though, they should at least try to reply to one other person every couple days(Along with posting their own posts & also posting to avoid prods, of course.) if they can...both to keep the game going and the replies coming & going between players.
That doesn't matter. People had the same issues in previous games too, they had IRL problems, they had power roles, they were lazy (I still am), but they still cared to post their opinion, at least in form of short posts. "I think it's good case." "I don't like his defense." "I don't like this vote"... or something similar accompanied with vote. Even this helps, beacuse it allows game to progress. In last 2 games someone comes with accusation, accused person responds and rest of town just yawns around until another person comes with accusation and rest of town has something else to ignore.
I am one of those people who tends to not write much as I can't seem to remember every other post someone made in one of these games and know how to best tear it apart & analyze it to determine if someone is friend or foe. Most of my reasoning comes from gut instinct(And a bit of guessing.) and whatever "massive tells" I note from other players/posts. (Like ViolatorX and the whole fishing for PR info thing....it seemed off to me at that time as well, but I didn't know how best to play that feeling at the time.)
And if you are actually around it is at least ssomething and if others did it, we would be much further. When you dropped the Day 1 nonsense with N0x0ss, "we will believe each other because we just decided so without reason," you became useful part of game because you want to do something. Most people don't. If only you didn't disappear for longer periods of time, it would be even better. ;-)
OK, let's try this another way.
What do you think of Violator attempt to get you reveal your info? Do you think his intents are honest? matti:
Who do you suspect as mafia? IronStar:
Why do you think nmillar is mafia? Do you have other suspects? We were discussing the part about planeshaper being on your side, why did you abandoned it? nmillar:
What si your opinion about GameRager? You too said it is strange of mafia to kill someone voting you. Do you believe someone who rolled dice to vote would really help to lynch you? GameRager:
YOu said you wanted to vote N0x0ss or nmillar before you decided on Violator? Do you think one of them has to be mafia or is it possible both are town? Which one do you think is more likely to be scum and why? N0x0ss:
Do you still think nmillar is mafia? Who do you see as his scumbuddies? boct:
In post no. 418 you said your evidence is not strong enough to vote N0x0ss but you voted him in post no. 438. What changed in the meantime? Gazoinks:
What do you think of Violator's vote on you? Do you believe it is justified? ViolatorX:
Who are your scumbuddies? Also I remember asking you something, would you care to reply? Vítek:
Why are you so awesome? Why are you so sure Violator is scum?
