COMMENT 112 is SPAM, please downvote it.
I also want to know why nmillar thought 2 votes was too much. :/ @GR @Lift
the alphabetizing was not breadcrumbing, nor was it a joke--I was listing my reasons in alphabetical order for a variety of reasons, as enumerated below.
I shall rewrite it with emphasis added.
As i see it, we have either (alphabetical order)
a) Scum Trent Attempting to pocket town gogtrial. Unsure as this is early and obvious, but maybe he's setting groundwork for later.
B) Scum Trent Became rushed and saying anything to look busy--Gogtrial in this case might or might not be scum, this has to be read as NAI right now, but might revisit later.
C) Scum Trent Communicating something to scum gogtrial in code because of no day-chat (though daychat has I guess become a thing here? It wasn't in the last HP game, but ZFR might be doing things differently this time.)
D) Third-party Trent Doing something similar to A, but with slightly different motives.
E) Town Trent Exhibiting honesty, but without reasoning. The Danger is that this appears as skating.
F) Town Trent Formulating a message to a teammate with whom he shares a NC. This does not exclude E).
I was trying to use the following format: [alignment] Trent [thoughts/reasons/ideas] The [thought/reasons/ideas] started with a word beginning with the first letter that corresponded to that reason's letter. Thus reason 4 / D has the first word of the reason beginning with the fourth letter of the alphabet, reason 5 / E has the first word of the reason beginning with the 5th letter of the alphabet, etc. No code, no nothing, just numbering my reasons--and the mental jumps to stretch my brain in order to come up with words that fit both my thought patterns and the letter.
I thought it would be obvious enough that i could eliminate the Numbering system before the alignment, but apparently not.
I also alphabetized my reasons because alphabetical lists are easier to follow. (Scum > Third-party > Town > trent > First Letter of the Reason/Thought, and rewrote the opening word of the thought process when I couldn't think of a word that would make it alphabetical and fit the numbering system. I even shuffled reasons around to make them alphabetical if that was easier than rewriting it.
As a result, some of it could be called mental exercise, the way my dad does sudoku, and my grandparents do crossword puzzles.
@GR do you mean the posts by Joppo? I take it this means he is in the observation channel. If you mean another post, i'm not sure what you mean. It could be that you are seeing things? Also, if you found my alphabetical post weird because alphabetizing...that's weird. A previous game both SPF and Pooka, if memory serves, wrote long sentences with the alphabet and vowels in them, and no one -- yourself included -- thought it odd.
If I become convinced that anybody appears to be scum, i will vote them.
my name is coole catte:
Is Joe just attracting RVS votes like bees to vinegar or is there something to it?
"Bees to vinegar" is this a british phrase or is this scum-code? I am used to "attract flies with honey", and yours seems very different.
The answer was in my post that I poorly worded "He is more reactive and pushing when he sees an opening than he is trying to create openings to push"
I see Town gogtrial being more reactive and pushing when he sees an opening and I see Scum gogtrial trying to create those openings to react to and push. It's subtle but it's all I can typically find different in his play style.
Thank you for rephrasing. if you can see the difference in gogtrial's posts, i envy you. So far, it eludes me. As such, I will consider your opinion but not take it as absolute truth.
I do wish more people would come and say something. Joe, GR, and Catte have each contributed a little meat and a lot of non-meat in their posts so far, but I want something to sink my teeth into, whether by them or by others.
