    I'm kicking down the max number of phallas back to one main and two minis. The increase was ill-considered.

    so just because we didn't use it for a few days we lose it, at a period when a good portion of the population is swapping between summer and school schedules. yay.

    Spectrum, you can go ahead and put yours up, but this will be the last time we'll have three minis running at once.

    Well, it's probably a good time to transition to the 'one main, two minis' schedule anyways, since we're now between main games and nobody's claimed 'ready' yet. Having three minis will fill that gap until the next game starts. I'll see if I can get a main game signup going by the weekend...

    Oh, also, I'm going to be attempting to lock Phalla threads within a day or so of them ending. Should help keep the front page a bit clearer.

    Can Phantastic Voyage get unlocked for the rest of its day, then? It was only over for three hours and we weren't done with post-mortem yet.

    Fine, I don't want to get into a grammar fight (in that phrase, within changes to modify the or so), so you can go ahead and lock a thread that hasn't even had any opportunity to "fall off the front page" for twelve or so hours while the actual players work around you "making a point."

    I will be working on a Mini.

    It will not be ready for a while.

    But I want it known that I'm working on one.

    And it will be... slightly... experimental.

    I don't even know what that sentence is supposed to mean. I mean, I understand the words, but the way you have put them together doesn't make any sense. It seems to be some kind of passive-aggressive sniping; would you care to clarify, or would you prefer to just leave me in the dark...?

    Cute. You've made it very clear that you're not actually going to listen to the people playing, so I'll stop trying.

    I genuinely do not understand what you are saying there. I'm not being sarcastic. It really just seems like some sort of passive-aggressive snipe, and I was wondering if there was maybe something constructive in there. I honestly have no idea what anything beyond the poorly-punctuated comment about the grammar fight is supposed to mean. I was attempting to discover if you had some sort of reasonable criticism, but I guess I have my answer, now.

    Hmm. I'd prefer a 24-hour allowance before locking, if only to allow all players a sufficient amount of time to make a final comment on the game. After 24 hours of the game's end, locking should be fine. There's usually at least a day or two between games that it shouldn't make a significant difference in terms of the speed / cleanliness of the front page of the subforum.

    ...well, glad I'll be able to take the last spot causing too much clutter before everything dissolves into tears. It feels historic. Maybe I should celebrate.

    At any rate, I'm giving advent's another day to get going, so signups will be posted sometime tomorrow (on or before Noon PST, PM to reserve if you want). Vote close is 10PM EST, 25 slots.

    The theme? One of the following:
    A) "It shall be engraved upon your soul!"
    B) "That's my way of the ninja. Believe it!"
    C) "Neither. I choose the path in between, the path to twilight."
    D) "For the preservation of our Blue and Pure world!"
    E) A unique theme pieced together from my mind

    Than, do we have to wait just until one game is over (clearing the first or second spot in the case of advent or dune's) or until two games are done to put up another?

    Two games. If there's only one mini running, another one can be started; if there's two minis running, then no more can start until one of them finishes.

    Well, unless you want to have three minis running and no main. I'm gonna try and get the next main game started Friday night...

    Well then, my house move is over, and I'm settled, so have my minis ready to go whenever I'm allowed to post one.

    The first post says there are only 2 games running, but that doesn't seem to be the case - can someone enlighten me?

    At the moment, you can have up a main and three minis. You're going to have to wait until two of the minis end to start up another mini.

    So I figure you guys might be able to help me out here-- I'm running an Assassin game in my dorm. How would I go about randomizing a list of names?

    Another thing, I'm using a temporary Gmail account. I don't normally use Gmail-- if I send a mass email to all the participants, will they be able to see the other recipients? If so, can that be turned off? I'd rather they not know who is and isn't playing.

    Put all the roles in Excel.

    http://www.random.org/sequences/

    Randomize a sequence from 1 to how ever many roles you have

    Sort the numbers and role from AZ to put them in random order and then compare that to an alphabetized list of all the participants. That gives you random roles for everyone playing.

    You should start your own topic for this kind of question. Still...

    1. Looking up a random number generator online and decrementing it by 1 each time you assign a name should allow you to do the list, assuming someone can't direct you to a program that does something akin to "picking numbers out of a hat" for you, automatically making a number not selectable when it's picked.

    2. Try putting everybody's email address under BCC instead of the To or CC windows, using a test email with two friends to ensure it works.

    Or you could use the way that I randomize lists for IRC Mafia games when I don't want to do it right in excel the way I do for Phalla

    http://www.random.org/lists/

    You just throw the full list of names there and it puts them in a random order. Then you could just post it next to a list of all the roles.

    I like using the sequence generator better since I feel like I am a lot more detached from the randoming process.
