    The best thing is going to be if the villagers lynch me, because then I'll still die the same way I always do even though the roles are reversed

    Night 1

    Dubz and Karabou watched their family with interest. There was some bickering over whether it was appropriate to nominate oneself for the role of Family Mayor, or whether that was something only a rotten villager would do. There was a lot of confusion over whether it was beneficial or detrimental to become the leader of the pack. No one seemed to know for sure.

    In the end, it was @Animal Midwife who won the race.

    It is now Day 1.
    Please get your actions in promptly, so we can close early and get back to killing villagers ;)

    Sure, sure. You politicians are all the same -- you say you'll only run for one term; next thing you know, you've been elected for the 4th time

    Eh, I was ok with it. I'm not sure I get to be elected mayor after what I did to people in the dog game lmao. Being negligent and thereby responsible for the deaths of future constituents is not generally the best PR for a campaign lol

    So this is like the plants vs. dogs argument. Dogs remind me to feed them and take care of them vs. plants sit there and let me let them die (I've killed 2 cacti... I'm that bad). If it can remind me to take care of it I'm much better at doing it.

    WW games are the plant in this scenario :p

    Happened ~a year ago, very shortly after the first Secret Santa


    See, there's the bribery I'm talking about! It wouldn't have been enough to sway my vote because you jumped in late, but it's really nice to see an attempt.

    Lots of road salt in the new place. I'm good :)

    This feels like a lie, because I feel like usually being mayor is a big liability even if by way of how mods write the role, it is not. Remember, my memory for games is bad, but iirc genny paid the price.

    Also, how did MJ profit from the mayor role as wolf when he was not unseerable (I think)?

    I thought Mel went for mayor once as wolf, or was village and again, shenanigans.

    Maybe I'm misreading you, but I thought you found it stressful to be center of attention like this, and hate role/ability reveals. Here you're courting everyone knowing there will be something special about you, presumably.

    Honestly I wasn't side eyeing you seriously for this until your claim thst being mayor is innocuous. It isn't.

    So tell me the correct terminology when an overwhelming majority forms on a player and it isn't based on solid evidence like a seer read or such.

    What does WTF being mayor and being adversely affected have to do with keeping DocE out of power?

    And why does this invalidate that the mayor role opens a villager up to negative action?

    Mayors should always be liabilities. I never claimed they weren't.

    What happened to genny?

    By keeping an ability out of the village's hands that would have killed the alpha.

    It's just called a wagon. A bandwagon is a wagon that forms over an unusually short period of time.

    Because DocE will literally try to break games if anything follows a vaguely similar/expected manner.

    Because this isn't a lounge game. Besides, do you see anything negative happening to me?

    I thought genny or someone said in this thread that it seemed like her death was due in part to her mayoral abilities.

    My point on MJ, isn't that I don't see how a wolf benefits from being mayor. It's how a seerable wolf isn't caught out, as people here are claiming wolves wouldn't want the scrutiny. If that's true, someone enlighten me how he survived that.

    I get it that in some ways, mayor is a popularity contest. So I am side eyeing everyone for potential pocketing for where they voted and for self promotion via mayor.

    And someone's earlier point about wolves shying away from the mayor role is WIFOM to the max.

    This last statement, I'm not sure why you seem to think you're so bulletproof. And no, this isn't the Lounge but there are a fair number here familiar with playing there. Not to mention most of the examples of the mayor role being an issue were taken from here.

    Because this is a popularity contest, and I wanted to see how you and others would react to the counterwagon forming.

    I got lynched as mayor. So... not planning to run again anytime soon. Mayoral ability was to cancel lynch, which of course would have made the village lynch me all over again, so I just chose to die instead. I think what Cray is trying to remember is that I'm a very good mayor even if you lynch me.

    I missed that if it was said. Doubtful the death happen in pre-vet though.

    There was no seer for one thing. Hence, why I don't advocate for electing people that are difficult to read because you can't guarantee one will even be in the game. The ways it helped MJ, personally, included the fact that it made one of the wolves a true alpha and he also made a fake claim about what ability he got, dissipating his wagon and buying extra days alive. It was enough to win the game.

    Cray, no offense, but what's your end game here?

    Regardless of whether you think some of my prior logic about who would/would not run for this is WIFOMy, I don't really see AM running for mayor as a wolf unless she was literally forced into it somehow. Do you?

    Ok but there is a difference between WIFOM and risk analysis. Are there times when analyzing something like who puts themself up for a mayor role is WIFOM? Sure.

    But there are also times when you can look at a scenario, reason through it, and make some inferences about what you think would be more or less likely, based on logic and experience.

    Not saying it's the type of thing that should be your only data point, but it doesn't mean it's useless, either.

    I didn't say they weren't. Point was that most of the mayoral shenanigans being discussed in this thread where from pre-vet, not the Lounge. So acting like the mayor role was so benign in this forum is just not true and not a function of where you play this game on SDN.

    So, I'm gonna assume you got ninja'd here with genny. The game where genny was mayor was in prevet, not the Lounge, correct?

    And if I'm reading this right, you are conceding that someone wanting to be elected to the mayoral role isn't good evidence of being village, correct?

    when I showed up, MJ's was the only counterwagon I noted, or possibly the only one that caught my eye.

    The others are the other people playing, duh.

    My end game is that everyone's thinking on this mayor thing is majorly pissing me off, and it feels like you and AM are being purposely obtuse about this, and I don't like it when anyone is being purposefully obtuse, it's akin to deception.

    When MJ was elected as a wolf, he never self-voted. When genny was elected as a villager, she lead her own campaign. But yes, it is NAI at worst, not wolfy, to run for mayor.
