Hi there!

Liars Club is a community of live Mafia clubs based in Princeton, Stanford, Berkeley, and Oklahoma State University. We are delighted to announce that we are hosting Season 1 of the Liars Club Mafia League starting October 15! It's a competitive, inter-community, 5-week video Mafia league with cash prizes - a $2000+ total prize pool with at least $300 guaranteed for the winner, as well as lots of smaller prizes in various categories. We're looking to get up to 3 people to represent the Town of Salem community - we'd love to have you, and we leave it up to you on how you want to nominate your representatives. There will be 30-40 people participating in total.

How is it scored? What version of Mafia are we playing? What is the time commitment like? Check out our promotional poster here for full details! https://bit.ly/MafiaLeagueAnnouncement

Want to see real people playing our game? Check out this highlights reel of a game from a live tournament we hosted in April: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnWx1dlfLL4

Maybe we should consider a separate queue for these, at this rate...?

Hey guys, the mod team is looking to address some issues regarding the current game queues, as well as announce some new changes in management.

To start off with a bang, we're going to be ridding ourselves of the 2nd Standard game slot. We've instead decided to opt for a new game slot, meant to be used for all of the different game types. We have no special name for this slot, as it can be any sort of game. This slot will be used to help with queue cluttering and backup, and will be used very soon to help with the backup in the SFM queue.

Additionally, there is going to be changes to queue management.

I will be stepping down from queue management to head and focus on our Balance team, while
Metrion shall be stepping up to the plate to handle the backup game slot in place of me.

Address any questions, comments, or concerns in our thread dedicated to this, our Discord, or in PMs to the moderators.

Two reminders regarding a few issues which have crept up a bit more recently:

1) If you have host powers, don't use them outside of your game unless given permission by another games host or by an FM Moderator.

Regardless of intentions or whether or not the host who's game was affected is fine with it, always make sure you have their permission before using your host powers in their thread. For instance, if you have host powers and somebody else's game has reached hammer but it isn't locked and the host seems to be offline, ping an FM Mod on the Discord to lock it instead of doing it yourself.

2) Don't join games when you're aware you have a signup cool-down.

Regardless of whether or not the Moderation Hub is updated, you should be keeping track of how long your signup cool-down lasts for, especially if you were force replaced from a game. If you're a host, check the Moderation Hub to see if any players who joined your game are on a signup cool-down, or if it isn't up-to-date then check recent games to see if a player trying to join your game is on a signup cool-down.

------------------------------------------------

On a more positive note, the Replacements Spreadsheet in the Moderation Hub has been updated so that the replacement information from July to now is present in it. With the next Episode coming up very soon, it might be worth checking out to see if you're eligible for it or not.

That's all... for now.
