    thank you for the answer

    one more question: If I would like to host something there, would I have to learn a lot about hosting tools, mods, and so on? I am personally a bit affraid of such things

    I usually host my games manually. The modbot's features mostly get shut off and it keeps track of the vote tally, but I would still recommend hosting a "test" game with a bunch of my dummy alts that I made a while back. That way you can learn how to use the tool and if you mess up, literally nothing was lost. It should only take like 30 minutes of your time to run a game with turbo short phases and "majority elimination" on during day, which ends days at 51 percent of votes cast for one target.

    If you do that, then no, there's not a whole lot to learn and it is fairly intuitive, and I believe there's a tutorial out there stickied if you need help.

    If you want to run more or less fully automated games then yeah, I'd learn as much about them as you can and maybe get an experienced cohost to help you set it up and run it. You do all the work, they help you with the modbot if you dont know what to do.

    I'm almost certain you don't need to post at all on MU to receive PMs, fwiw.

    You should notify the admin to cancel the second account. They take a dim view of that here.

    I was contacted by Admin with question about it. It was even worse, because I started yesterday with creating new account (Jarema Reborn) because I thought I forgot the password. Then I remembered password for Jarema account. And then Pizza reminded me that I had two r's in my name...
    I hope I have cleared situation with the Admin now

    It's like an enema, except twice, and for the grace of god.

    If it's an enema it cannot be for the grace of anything.

    For the grace of good health and a good colonoscopy, mayhaps.

    Thanks, but I'll pass. I'm starting my game in a couple of days (signups are still open, I should add) in order to give atpg time enough to host when his game comes around so I'll stick to that. I'm already playing two non-mafia games as well as Jarrema's whenever the latter starts.

    I'm closing signups @ 9:30 PM Central Time. I'll rand the game and send out Role PM's shortly thereafter. I'll start the game tomorrow evening after I get home from work somewhere between 5-10 PM Central Time.
