Can the audience play along at any point or are we primarily basically used for canned laugher?

Hey OLD Dude, what is your contingency plan if the mane goes down? I have had at least three times in the last 24 hours without being able to access the mane!

Excellent Question.

On the one hand, I'm inclined to let the chips fall where they may. Since we have a 24 hour window for voting, late voters are, to a certain extent, assuming the risk.

On the other hand, we don't want the whole game to be decided by a mere computer glitch.

So, my ruling will be this. If the site is up and available 30 minutes prior to the deadline, then the round will count, even if the site crashes during the last half-hour of attempted voting. So once we get within 30 minutes of the deadline, you can all assume that the round will be valid - - sort of like the rule in baseball. So as long as you vote within the first 23 and a half hours, things are cool. If you wait until the last 30 minutes, you take the risk of a site crash.

Whether I void or relaunch an entire round in a situation where we miss a whole bunch of time due to a crash that happens prior to the 30 minute countdown, will just be handled on a case-by-case basis, depending on how many people are still in the game, how long the crash was, how many had voted, and so on. Obviously, I don't want to extend deadlines just because of a short 15 or 20 minte crash the evening before, because there would usually be plenty of time to recover.

On the other hand, if the site crashes for 8 hours or more, then chances are that we will re-start the round.

Between those guidelines, it will just depend.

To be safe, vote early and often.

An and if we get to the last 30 minutes, and then the site crashes down on a couple later voters, the WILL get asteriks.

Moral of the story: If you've earned yourself an asterisk, you don't have a whole lot room for future error.

-Feeling proactive
The audience is certainly welcome to contribute. There won't be many situations where you can vote - - unless we hve to resort to that as a remote tiebreaker.

But you are more than welcome to post your observations and theories about the events and strategies in the game, and you can even post your own doctored PMs if you wish.

You can also offer advice and/or advocate the termination of certain individuals.

For example, one could theoretically point out that "Player X" has been laying way too low and not offering enough entertainment for viewers.

One could also offer strategies for different individuals or factions for surviving the zombie holocaust that is about to ensue.

Threats, bribes and bluffs are not limited to the players.

Holy Moses met the Pharaoh
Yeah, he tried to set him straight
Looked him in the eye
"Let my people go"

Holy Moses on the mountain
High above the golden calf
Went to get the Ten Commandments
Yeah, he's just gonna break 'em in half

All you zombies hide your faces
All you people in the street
All you sittin' in high places
The pieces gonna fall on you

No one ever spoke to Noah
They all laughed at him instead
Working on his ark
Working all by himself

Only Noah saw it coming
Forty days and forty nights
Took his sons and daughters with him
Yeah, they were the Israelites

The rain's gonna fall on you

Holy Father, what's the matter
Where have all your children gone
Sitting in the dark
Living all by themselves
You don't have to hide any more

{Refrain, except:}
All you zombies show your faces...
The pieces gonna fall on you

All you zombies show your faces, I know you're out there
All you people in the street, let's see you
All you sittin' in high places
It's all gonna fall on you

Hey, how do you doctor PMs, anyway? I have tried, and I can't ever make the formatting work.

Then again, who needs to doctor them when you have gems like this one?

Could be. I just hate this voting thing. I just don’t like being unkind to people. I wish everyone could win, because I want everyone to be happy.
Do you ever dress up as a woman and dance in your bathroom mirror?
Um, no.
You should totally try it... It just makes you feel so special!

What about Ethiopian teenage boys? Are you into Ethiopian teenage boys at all?
Um, no!
Yeah... Me, neither.

Do you think OldDude would look good in spandex?
Seriously, man – you need help! I just want to be kind to everyone. I don’t want to talk about Ethiopian boys, dressing up as a woman, and OldDude in spandex.
That's cool... I am going to go put on something frilly.

one little problem... where are the annoying dots...

Rule number one when you are creating a pm... copy the persons posting style. For instance, if i was coping Spider or Hotrod i would be sure to use several icons...especially this one

Typing several sentences without once putting in the ... is and example of people not trying hard enough.


P.S. I lied, i'm kind of neutral on ethiopian teenage boys.... not a huge turn on but definately not a turn off

Holy ratings batman.... just got done reading the entire thread. Only 1 suprise so far, How did Majik last so long? I figured he would have been voted off before the game started.

From what I can see there are only 2 players still left in the game. 1 is a ring leader the other is a comedian... yet both are meat gazers

BTW, I was going to post a FAQ - either as a sticky or as an attachment to the first post, but I think that almost everything that anyone needs to know is on pages 1 and 95 (plus the what-happens-if-the-site-goes-down post on page 96).

See Especially 2359 on 95.
