War Room Rules and Etiquette
In The War Room, you will be able to participate in games that involve strategy and thinking, such as mafia games. Here, other kinds of strategy games, such as mystery games, are also provided. The subforum also welcomes discussions regarding such games.
The War Room has a Twitter where we update news regarding games opening for sign-ups. If you have any suggestions for a Tweet, feel free to contact the staff.
Forum Rules apply in The War Room.
Regarding Multiple Posting, hosts are allowed to make a second post, if they are making an official update or an announcement. 'Announcements' include a change in the rules of the game, reports, subbing out/in players, or other notes that requires attention from all players.
Players are allowed to make a second post if you are changing your vote. In this case, how much time had passed before your previous post does not matter. Another case we allow a second post is when you have important information to bring in public and more than two hours passed since your last post. Also if the update time is less than an hour away, you may use a second post to share information in the thread.
Please note that for all users, triple posting is NOT allowed.
In additional to the Forum Rules, there are rules that apply for actions in The War Room. Following actions will be considered as violations by staff.
As a player:
- Posting after being lynched/killed in a mafia game, unless it was allowed by the host
- Editing out Votes/Unvotes entirely
When changing votes, either just add them at the end of the post, or make a new post if allowed per the time.
- Bringing up discussions related to a current game in another thread other than the respective game's thread
- Poor sportsmanship, being rude to hosts and/or players
- Continuously violating games' rules
As a host:
- Posting a mafia game before given approval by a moderator
- Adding roles or a mechanic in the game, that encourages players to violate Forum Rules
NOTE: Host can request the roles/mechanics in concern be checked by a staff member prior to hosting the game.
For violations that are unique to The War Room, warnings and infractions are usually given in the form of Pointless Posts. In the Personal Message explaining the warning/infraction, the reason why the staff chose to take action will be specified. Accumulating infractions could warrant further penalties such as being limited from joining games or being banned from the subforum for a given period.
The following posts will explain how to host a game (Mafia or Non-Mafia), introduce some standard mafia game rules, and explain specifically about other official threads that staff have created in this subforum.
