For every judge past and present, can you please give Dobby a sock? I've been here so long.

oops I missed this one. here’s an extra sock for your troubles

I definitely think hs/h is important along with gamethrowing and cheating.
Revenge of the Sith was the best Star Wars movie and that’s all I have to say about that.

Opinions on bomber role (not detonator)

Also who would eat a spoonful of salt thinking it was a spoonful of sugar


Bomber is meh. They need to get a fuse off early to stand a chance. I once rolled bomber and didn't get a fuse off all game, ended up being lynched D4 or D5 iirc after hardclaiming bomber bc at that point I knew I had a 0% chance of winning (and for some reason town policy lynched me anyway even though there were better lynch targets out there - I don't remember if town won or lost, but I think I got a bingo from the policy NE lynch).

To answer the second question, haha salt machine go brrr

How did Town of Salem and the forums affect your life? Do you have any regrets?



I met some really amazing friends because of Town of Salem. I met two of them in person 2 summers ago. It's still one of my favorite memories.

The forums challenge me when I am doing an event. Phpbb is very... finicky


I Like them not gone like until you give the first place
are you gone do the same thing?


I am not 1000% sure what youre trying to ask. But then again, I just woke up :RIP:

Naru.


Not trying to just agree with all of Flavor's answers, but...


Does Naru even watch anime? Pretty sure judges and up, that I am probably the most. But I'm positive there are FM mods more weeb than I, and I'm not even that weeb.

I would say knowingly voting the opposite of what a report should be.

hmmm...

Spoiler: I have been around since 2014, although there was a year where I had left the forums for my own reason. For about two years I was an active global mod on many issues. While it isn't my first community, I consider the ToS Forum to be my Internet "home site."

People who knew me way-back-when can vouch for the fact I was terribly depressed. I will admit I did not see myself turning 18 and graduating high school. It truly is a wonder why a lot of people put up with me, some even still to this day. In 2015, I became friends with two members of the forums, getting romantically involved with one of them for just shy of two years. During this time, I went through a lot of self-discovery, but one important thing I learned was how to finally be happy. I don't know what kicked me into depression originally, but my time with this person in particular was incredible and helped me back up on my feet. It is because of them I can identify as an optimist and keep my head up even when times are tough.

It is hard to say I have any regrets, because I was most active on these forums when I was a teenager — really, a kid. We do find ourselves scoffing at and side-eyeing kids online when they do stupids things, but they're kids. In a few years, like us, they'll probbaly be looking back and cringing at the stuff they used to say. I certainly do. Yet, I still wish I could go back and act more mature, you know? There are a lot of scuffles I wish I resolved more amicably. Unfortunately, it is what it is.

But within this muddy swamp, I was able to find many positive take-aways. The forum game VLDR has provided me many friendships that I hope last a long time. It has also allowed me to work on my writing and spreadsheet abilities, both of which skyrocketed over the last year. I have met, in person, five people from the forums six different times, and I was on track to meet two more people (and one repeat) this summer with two separate trips, but neither are likely to be possible due to the current state of the world.

As for that second member I mentioned above, we are still friends to this day. Last year he ordered us matching bracelets that I have worn since I received it. :) I am also in a very lovely relationship with another person on the forums, but I'm sure no one wants to hear me be sappy so I'll just leave it at that.


This was deep, well done Nelly. Oddly reminiscent of mine, but I wouldn't say I was depressed, just looked at things much more negatively than I do now. Luckily a good friend help re-position my way of thinking, and I definitely look at the world more optimistically.

AbstractGlacial wrote:How did Town of Salem and the forums affect your life? Do you have any regrets?


Not many know this, but the starting code for Trial System occurred as a result of an unpaid internship for university, that I reached out to Blake and Josh and proposed to them. This internship is actually what landed me my full-time job, as the particular interview I went to required some form of presentation of something I worked on. I would say this was the most memorable interview, because it's not everyday that you can walk into a professional setting, show them a Hate Speech report about burning Jews, and walk out with a job. Honestly, wasn't prepared for the vulgar in the report that loaded during my live demonstration of Trial, so it caught me off guard a bit, but it ended up showcasing the point as to why the System was needed.

TOS has been the path to giving me the strongest friendships, probably stronger than even my IRL friends, and I've gone to visit a bunch of these friends over in the UK... which will always be a treasured memory.

The work on the forum and game has given my a perspective on situations that I normally wouldn't have been witness to, and I feel that it has led to a steeper character development, all for the better: from having to read into things from a neutral position, never making assumptions, and working hard at setting aside any biases to give people equal footing. Sure, I have failed at some tasks time and time again, but you have to learn from them and move on. Looking back, I do feel like I did a pretty good job (but then again, I suppose everyone in my shoes would say that).

Regrets.. hmm.. I would say most of my regrets come from hindsight: I should have worded something differently, put less trust in particular people, kept more in touch with people, etc. Unfortunately, I've found in my position, there is always some doubt in my mind... meet someone new that is somewhat enjoyable to talk to -- how am I to know if they are just "befriending an admin" or talking to me for me?

But overall, it's been a long and mostly enjoyable 6 years and the Trial family has pretty much become just that: a family. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
I have mostly rescinded my role as Admin.
