    Here's my argument.
    What if you were mafia? You would be asking the students to lynch aamto, and if aamto is a student, we're one man short (read: start of saw mafia). This will definately cause the students to have some disadvantage.

    Then again, i guess for now it's 50/50 for me.

    don't you think people will end up doing a random bandwagon anyway? im just saying that from stuff he said on irc, i would suspect he's mafia. here's one thing he let slip if you still want to know:

    [04:06:54] <aamto> i could prove that i am ministry or something else!

    that sound good?

    and if you think he was joking, he was like 'wait wait wait, what were the groups again right after that. he thought ministry was clean. if he isn't mafia though, i can't help but wonder how stupid he is.

    No-one is that stupid. I suspect that you know he is innocent (do Inspectors get their power on the first night) and are trying to get us (the students) to kill him on your behalf. That would make you mafia and therefore a good target for our first bandwagon.

    Avada Kadavra. (I think that's how you spell it)

    Assuming that's true, that sounds like some pretty solid evidence, and it's better than doing a random bandwagon =/

    Of course, for all I know, this could be a "random" bandwagon attempt in disguise, and you're a mafia trying to kill off one of your enemies early instead of risking your own group to the bandwagon, and getting this in early.

    Assuming similar ratios to saw mafia, I'd say hogwarts has about a 35-40% chance at randomly hitting a mafia if one of the mafias select a random target not among their own group. Not great odds, so if we're being fooled, we'll probably lose one of our own.

    hi tim-whoever. okay let me go at this a bit theoretically first.

    if i WAS mafia, why the hell would i draw attention to myself before the daytime even started??

    additionally, if i WAS mafia, why would i start a bandwagon and hence draw MORE attention to myself? don't you think i would just wait and vote for whoever is being voted? if it was my team, sure id try to defend them. sort of like what you're doing for aamto, do you realize that?

    additionally, check this out: (more excerpts from our log)

    [04:06:54] <aamto> i could prove that i am ministry or something else!
    [04:07:10] <aamto> wait how many groups are there
    [04:07:12] <Shiv> 3
    [04:07:15] <Shiv> death eaters
    [04:07:16] <Shiv> ministry
    [04:07:18] <aamto> and what are the broups
    [04:07:19] <Shiv> students
    [04:07:25] <Shiv> ministry and death eaters are mafia
    [04:07:31] <aamto> are they really
    [04:07:32] <aamto> rofl
    [04:07:34] <aamto> uh oh

    did you realize that people may confuse ministry to be good? i guess its a possibility isn't it?

    lastly, ive already left a very subtle hint in the message where i first posted about aamto. any villager should be able to realize what it is and that will help me prove my villagerness.

    tim, I'm not sure how often you've played mafia, but you should know that as this is the first night, no one knows ANYTHING.

    The only people who know something are the mafia and the mafia leaders. Any special powers, inspector, etc. will not have a chance to come into play until after the nighttime.

    Edit: #cool is a discussion channel for the irc mafia found in #fluodome and is in no way related to Harry Potter mafia.

    and bg, really protect me because i want to live after night one at the very least.

    edit: inspector, for a variety of reasons, it would be good if you inspected toothache. and if he did turn out to be mafia, maybe you could email me with an alt email address or something telling me that he is? (that is, if you aren't certain on my being clean yet).

    Good point - no giving out information anonymously. We might as well unban secret poster for this thread then.
