here, I mean an actual valid explanation
I really don't see the point in lynching anyone right now, but be it on your own heads if he turns out town. I'm not going to join in on wild lynches.
additionally, would you like to suggest any such way he can defend himself? there's nothing put against him, so what in the world is he supposed to do to defend himself? you can't just say 'there's always a way' without anything to back it up. if i was to start trying to lynch somebody by myself, and everyone was going against me for it, i wouldn't just say 'oh, there's always a way he could be mafia' and expect everyone else to act along with it. there is literally no way. a claim isn't a defence, and he definitely shouldn't have to claim just because people think it's a good idea to try and pointlessly lynch him.
@GliscorMan; I wasn't leaping to your defense. It was the logic I had a problem with, not the vote on you as such. You have just as much chance of turning up mafia as anyone else right now so I don't mind. Buoy is totally right, we are lynching for no reason here. Not gonna vote because I don't want to be part of a rash bandwagon but looks like he'll be lynched anyway. I just hope we get lucky.

Accumula Town - This town offers great views due to its many hills.
Accumula Town is known to be quite hilly, and some of them are raised up in squares where they can be used as platforms. Ghetsis, the leader of Team Plasma had once used this so he could give a speech on Pokemon liberation.
Cheren remembers that day when Ghetsis had tried to persuade people into releasing their pokemons. He had been one of the spectators with Hilbert, and took notice of how that man had been a good liar - talking about what's good for pokemon, when he was planning something else.
Team Plasma was still out there. Cheren called Rosa to investigate certain locations that seemed suspicious. Rosa said she would, and immediately took a detour from her journey.
On her way, she found Giant Chasm in the northern part of the region. She ventured inside, and discovered a secret cave. There was an enormous dragon that she had never seen before... as well as a man wearing back, holding a cane.
"Hey, what are YOU doing here? This place has been discovered! GET HER!!"
Giant Chasm - Legend says that if you approach this big chasm, disasters surely follow.
Apparently, the legend is quite true. Rosa almost died from that last attack.
When Rosa's Xtranceiver wasn't responding, Cheren immediately contacted the location where she had been last. Marlon, who just returned from a swim, picked up the call and headed over to the Giant Chasm.
The man trying to get rid of Rosa was eventually arrested and sentenced to death for trying to use a fatal attack on a kid. Meanwhile, Rosa was taken away to a safe place where she would stay until she recovers.
IT IS NIGHT 1. YOU MAY SEND IN YOUR NIGHT ACTIONS.

Speaking of Ghetsis,

that was really lucky. wow.
I know I wasn't here for day 1 but I generally don't like day 1 lynches; however in this case we really lucked out.

Just because the random lynch turned into getting Mafia, it doesn't mean that what Buoy said is invalid, @Harpy;.
That was awesome! Excellent start for us. :D
What. I don't even. Shoot.

That GliscorMan was the lynch redirector almost makes me wonder if the reason Harpy mentioned him even though he'd clearly already looked in-thread before (as he'd posted more than once) and been mentioned by the host was to alert him to use his redirect. Just a small theory with not much behind it, but possible.
One thing to point out other than that:
When Harpy placed the second vote on GliscorMan, she did provide reasons why. They may not be reasons that everyone agrees with, but she did at least give some explanation outside of just a vote for the heck of it.Originally Posted by Harpy
As mentioned above, there WAS a reason given for the vote. And it especially should've counted as a reason if even "a silly one" would've been permissible according to CrackFox here.Originally Posted by CrackFox
Also, @Booster Gold and @Faerie both came in for a bit during Day 1 (Booster to confirm, Faerie for a name change) yet did not have anything at all to say otherwise about the game. There's also @Stahl who was absent Day 1 and only came in after the fact with a generic comment about this being a good start.
To all of you three, does anything stand out as noteworthy, or potentially scummy thus far?
Besides that, CrackFox didn't say that a 'silly reason' would have been permissible for the lynch -- she wanted to know why Midorikawa wanted to vote GM; Mido's first reason was 'because I want to', and CrackFox was looking to know WHY she wanted to, even if it was a silly reason. You're trying to be pedantic to use CrackFox's words against her. Selectively quoting is not particularly a good sign from you.
1. Why did you even point out Midorikawa's 'reasoning' (if that's what you want to call it)? It's past the fact now.
2. Why bother to go against CrackFox like that? It's clear what she meant when she was talking about 'silly reasons', at least to me. Was it because she wasn't on board with those ridiculous reasons you feel the need to defend?
I also don't think it's selectively quoting when I didn't even cut the quote short or anything.
1) I only pointed out her reasoning because it pertained to what CrackFox said. I never said that I agreed with Harpy's reasons, I just quoted them to show that there was something given that had already fit what CrackFox said. Pressure sometimes doesn't work because as you pointed out, often there is nothing to defend against on Day 1, but it can be useful to make sure that someone speaks up, so I don't think the reasons were completely ridiculous, just not advisable in all situations.
2) CrackFox frankly strikes me as someone to keep an eye on. Part gut feeling, and part just that her posts have rubbed me the wrong way. I don't think it's too unlikely that she wanted to subtly defend GliscorMan. However, I acknowledge that there isn't much behind this, but it's a hunch I intend to keep in the back of my mind at least.
