    @jalmont, empoof, and zorbees: what are your thoughts on an infinity cypher lynch as compared to whomever the hell you're voting now? I'm open to change my mind and you've all probably spent more time on this game than I have.

    shinyskarmory, you can answer that too; you seem to be putting in effort too

    unvote shining latios
    vote infinity.cypher

    While I'm nowhere near convinced Shining Latios is town, I thought his posts on this page were town-like, despite the fact that I didn't necessarily agree with them.

    I do feel like Cypher is a better target. I previously was unsure if we'd be able to get enough people to switch this vote, but I feel like I should at least try, if I feel that Cypher is more scummy, which, at the moment, I do.

    I didn't like his post at the top of this page very much at all, and when you consider that, when pressure was put on him, he tried to deflect by putting his vote on a target to make him L-1, this reeks of scum to me. He uses his inexperience as an excuse for basically all of his actions, despite other inexperienced users trying hard enough. I felt like almost every individual sentence had something in it that felt a bit off, whether it was his bit where he tried taking Jalmont's trolling seriously, or the part where he tries to tie askaninjask and spiffy to Shining Latios, almost as if saying "we should lynch shining latios, because when he flips mafia, these guys will too!"

    inb4 cypher is town and this post makes me look like an idiot

    Since no one wants to live Jalmont the active lurker, I'll help you guys lynch Infinity.Cypher the active lurker. His first list of reads pretty much reiterated the general opinion of each user he analyzed at that time. Then he claims he will read the thread and post his thoughts, but the next post only includes a bandwagon on Metal Sonic (who already had 4 votes at the time) and speculation about whether mafia would try to hit through the sentry, which is pretty useless because there's nothing we can do about that. I agree with others that his last post is extremely suspicious, just making excuses for himself while bandwagoning once again on the person with the most votes at that time.

    Unvote
    Vote Infinity.Cypher

    Jalmont I look forward to your required post now that you've been prodded! :)

    i just got off work.

    I never had a town read on infinity.cypher, but i did fall for his "i'm inexperienced" gag a bit too much, seeing as his posts were around Eagle/TPM/etc. (no offense guys, you're just new :p). I'll look over his posts after i get some food.

    Unvote Spiffy | Vote Infinity.Cypher

    I do think that an IC lynch would probably give us more info than an SL lynch during a misfire.

    I believe that's 3 votes for him, i don't know when deadline is...
    And yes i'm aware i may look like i'm bandwagoning, and if he turns up mafia i'll probably be pressured since he buddied me.

    Okay i need food and need to read.
    jalmont sux.

    I've already expressed my dislike of the SL lynch, so unvote jalmont vote Infinity Cypher, as it seems like this is going to be the only non-SL option.

    okay small thoughts, i just want to get as much out as possible as fast as possible. Will be my most scatterbrained post.

    Rough.

    Looking over his 6 posts, i didn't really see much surprisingly. He mostly went with what the overall theme of the thread was. His last post feels fluffy to me, with a lot of text but not really saying much.

    I also just really didn't like the idea floating around "that there's nothing of value to lose" during an SL lynch. If he's town, we have something of value to lose. Yes, he seems scummy, he also seems like noob town. Wtv. Not really caring about the SL thing right now. He shared this opinion so i am displeased.

    I didn't like how he brought up who do we think is gonna die tonight. Spooky. I feel like that's one of those unwritten rules that you don't talk about what's best for the mafia O.o

    IN SHORT I HATE IC

    no jk that's just what i picked up from his posts thus far.

    Still reading stuff

    aska: basically nobody had been really giving you much thought, and I wanted some analysis on you to make sure you weren't being scummy and being ignored. When I actually looked back and analyzed your posts, they seemed pretty good to me.

    As I expected, due to my stupidity, I gained 3 votes against me, welp :(

    What answers/information do you guys want from me?

    Also, unvote SL vote jalmont because of fluff I said before and that's he's inactive doing nothing

    I would honestly prefer a Shining Latios lynch because it has lower risk then an Infinity.Cypher lynch with the same potential reward.

    Sorry for being so short, but I'm lying in bed typing on my iPhone with the lights out. If you need my vote I'll change it to Infinity.Cypher on the condition that we keep the pressure on SL, Metal Sonic, and TPM.

    Divide Infinity.Cypher by zero


    Take my vote, I'm going to bed.

    Also, Shining Latios and Metal Sonic, you're not off the hook.

    okay 3am PST i'm so much more comfortable now. I'm really going to think for like a solid hour or two. Sorry for my rather spastic posts, i had thought deadline was like 12 minutes ago. I was very mistaken.

    Cypher, out of the following players, pick at least two that you feel are the scummiest:

    Walrein
    Eagle4
    LightWolf
    Spiffy
    Da Letter El
    askaninjask
    zorbees
    TPM
    Empoof


    For everyone else: There seems to be a lack of discussion regarding Eagle4. Thoughts on him? I have to go back and read his posts but I don't recall having a particularly townie read on him

    I posted in earlier in the thread about how I thought I.C was the scummiest, but I didn't change my vote to him because I didn't think it would matter. Now that theres some pressure on him I want to change my vote to him but I don't want it to seem like I'm bandwagoning. Still, I would feel safest lynching him so unvote
    Lynch Infinity.Cypher

    As far as my previous vote on shinyskarmory, something still feels off about him but his recent posts have been better. That could just mean he's learning though, so I still have a big deal of suspicion surrounding him.

    One thing I'd like to point out: Cypher and SL seem way too nonchalant about the bandwagons against them. I feel like a villager would be much more upset about being heavily voted like this (see: me earlier in the day).

    Doing that More Cowbell analysis now, and I'll throw in one on Cypher too.
