And I completely agree with the Standard argument. I personally think with the two standards running, one should always be for testing and the other for your typical standard.


Personally, I liked it better when we had a SFM and TFM queue. I think smaller games should be separated from larger games (MS does this). Small vs. Large is a pretty significant factor and I believe many players prefer one over the other. Like ICE said, while your game took almost 2 months was running, one or more smaller SFMs could have potentially been completed. Also, there are probably players in our player base who prefer smaller SFM games over larger ones. If smaller games keep getting backlogged due to large ones that take nearly 2 months to complete, players who favor smaller games are less likely to be active on the site. This is especially important with players who are newer to the site because if we go long periods of time without running a game that they're interested in playing, we are less likely to retain them.

I don't see any issue with running a smaller, quicker SFM game like Steins;Gate at the same time as a larger SFM that takes at least a month to complete.

Other than modslots and episodes, Standards are dependent on what's up in the queue? Maybe create a separate queue for testing experimental roles?

Closed standards and heavily changed standards should be limited to a much higher extent than they are now
Episodic rolelists are still archaic and different from what is more used for standard games today, 13v6 isn't often used in anything outside of the episode

People should still be able to host what they want, but I think modslots can be used for stuff that catches player interest or for testing out episode-like rolelists (16B is a good example of this).

never thought of this in the context of fm before, could mean that redirectorless games can have roleblockable roleblockers, etc.

This is correct. The Consort and Jailkeeper in 16D were both able to roleblock each other, and priority was given to Jailkeeper if they targeted each other.

This is also why Schultz and I have tried to make Marshal immune to RB/redirection, as there is no proper resolution for some interactions involving it, a witch, and an escort.

i was reading some of the beginners' guides yesterday and i noticed that they often mention roles that don't appear in the rolecard list thread (fx botanist). is there a different, more up-to-date version, or have these roles been removed, or is there a different explanation?
in-game: megitsune, bird attorney, pigeon, nighttime moom, greem beam, ...

This rolecards thread has experimental, vanilla, and non-episodic standard roles as well.
