    I don't think people with speech compulsion or loud are people we need to be particularly wary about though tbh, can't ANYBODY have those? For all we know you have one of them considering you are bolding both of those phrases in every single post.

    Just curious can you make a post naming these two traits + 3 more without bolding any of them?

    well why did you think it was a good idea to give us warnings regarding them? why is us knowing about them day 0 important, why should we watch out for them?

    that's the line of reasoning that seems to be missing for me, which is why I'm having a hard time buying that it was genuinely something you thought of that felt important enough to motivate you to post. instead, it seems like the motivation came from wanting to post something, anything, and because of that you ended up posting things that on the surface level might appear useful but deep down it isn't, because they didn't come from a genuine interest

    I'm not sure I'm making this very clear so just in case, here's a more detailed explanation for what I'm trying to say

    like, if there's two possible routes your mind could take when making those posts, route 1 would be:

    *something naturally piques your interest and motivates you to talk about it --> post about it*

    and route 2 would be:

    *you want to say something so you search for something that might be useful to the others outside of your faction --> you find something and post it*

    with route 1 I'd expect the thing you talk about to truly be something useful because in general (though granted not all the time) people don't tend to naturally find things interesting when they're not, but with route 2 I can easily see why you'd make the mistake of thinking it was useful when it wasn't, because you didn't need it to be genuinely interesting to think of it, you thought of it manually, so if you failed to thoroughly check that it was useful or not, it could result in the posts you made

    and I think it's more likely that route 2 comes from the law faction because as cult surely you wouldn't be in the mindset of 'I need to say something productive aaa' because I think it'd be more likely you'd be in the mindset of 'if something comes up I'll point it out, I'm not too worried about looking productive since I'm genuinely cult so hopefully my cult-ness will shine through, and I don't need to force reads out because I can wait for them to come naturally and those natural ones will be the ones that are more likely to be helpful because they're things I truly believe are relevant, so forcing things is pointless'

    but with being law-sided, I can totally see why you'd be panicking about looking productive, or being productive, because you know that you're hiding your true intentions so you're self conscious of not letting that show so to compensate for that you desperately want to look like you're helpful

    and since I think it's more likely your posts come from route 2 than route 1, and I think it's more likely route 2 comes from law then cult, I'm suspicious of you

    hopefully that makes sense to everyone?

    also as a side-note, the "... But, alas, you are merely overthinking the little things. x)" pings my radar a bit somehow

    actually I should have made route 2 "*you want to say something so you search for something that might be useful to the others outside of your faction --> you find something and post it*" since the crossed out bit already paints it as a scummy line of thought even though that doesn't make sense to do there, but my reasons for why this route of thinking, even without the crossed out bit, being suspicious still stands

    what has mafia universe done to inf
    why is he making long posts and not multiple shortish ones

    but i agree with testing any speech compulsion even though i still dont know why that is exactly necessary? also if duffie is speech compelled does her refusing to post without mentioning and/or bolding traits count as acknowledging a speech compulsion and so auto failing whereas the other option is to post without abiding to speech compulsion is also an autofail what a conundrum

    but i guess if you are speech compelled and warn people to be wary of people being speech compelled then that does seem DECEITFUL and testing worthy

    also i don't really understand what the negative consequence of not abiding to speech compulsion could be other than a modkill and vice versa the positive consequence being don't get modkilled

    but imo i think the bolding is just to format posts nicer but mentioning traits could be a thing but then like what else is there to discuss

    tbh I was talking to our lovely host Alisha pre-game about how I'm worried I'll spam the thread too much for people to keep up and she said that she welcomes my kind of activity level but that the one piece of advice she'd give is to maybe spend more time organising posts if I'm concerned about it (presumably so that I don't spam as much) so that's what I'm doing!!

    I see where you come from, and remember going the route 2 way the *only* time (because I obviously isn't now) I have been mafia. However, I think we also should be aware of that this could just be hype for the game, as she hasn't played for a while? I also went back and checked some of the earlier games, and it might be noteworthy that all her intro posts (that I checked) were considerable shorter and more 'relaxed', but she had different alignments.

    From what I see from this is that we're just as likely to expose a town member trying to improve their ability or gain one (pure guesses of some "positive consequences"), as to expose a mafia member or third party attempting to do the same.

    it could be that I guess, but right now my intuition/gut/whatever it's called tells me there's more to it than that

    thanks for checking on her old games though, that's interesting, not sure what to make of it though
