I'm stepping in here for a minute as the co-mod with more mafia experience, especially wrt playing.
REMINDER TO ALL: I mostly haven't been watching the thread, and I still have no idea who is what alignment (except Zeo and I are mods). Be advised that it will be exceedingly foolish to try and guess about people's alignments based on my statements.
No, it's fine to make a redundant post. It's not cool to edit though, and it sounds like you did that deliberately(?!?).
I did. And it has no game-relevant anything.
The point of the No Editing rule is to preserve the integrity of the game, in the fashion of "Don't even give the appearance of possible wrong doing".
In the spirit of that: You claim whatever you edited was not game relevant. Now prove it. Ideally prove it to me in chat, so the game thread doesn't get dominated/cluttered by this.
If a post doesn't have that edit marker, then it can generally be trusted to be in its original state. This is a very asynchronous game because it is played by people literally across the world, and this rule means that everyone is able to 'hear' everything that anyone says.
You are currently at -5 bonus points for editing.
Only edited within a minute of posting as i forgot to add a word or two. I certainly hope that isn't disqualifying.
What I said to blotunga applies to your defense as well.
Looks like Joe also covered the why's pretty well in Post 417.
I know, and that's why i wouldn't edit a post that makes any potential effect to the game.
) i edited... was talking about PBP, not about who may or may not be a fascist or voting suggestions. Literally, no effect to the game.
Also it was more or less within a minute of posting. I tend to not see mistakes (especially with formatting in BBCode involved
) til after the fact.
It is the fact that you edited at all
that could affect the game, not which particular post was edited. Can you offer substantial proof that you didn't name hitler!Blotunga's fascist allies, so he knows who to trust (and not to shoot, if the murder Fascist penalty comes up)?
I speak from experience when I say that it can be really annoying when you spot a mistake or grammar edit or whatever AFTER you've already posted. Make a separate post with a Post-By-Edit marker to fix it (wait 10 minutes, so the posts don't merge and get marked as edits), or you can ping a mod to request a one-time allowance to make the edits (and make sure you ask BEFORE making the edit, and remember that mods might decline).
The honor system is all well and good, but especially when we're playing games where players have incentives to lie, it helps everyone if certain rules are followed to prevent possible misunderstandings. Not to mention that not everyone is actually honorable.
