ultraviolet is the only one who is not posting satirical pictures to demean me, so I'm only going to respond to her. Thank you for your consideration.
okay, time out.
literally everyone lives in a timezone that is going to make things inconvenient on the internet in some way. I live in Australia! literally everyone is asleep about 80% of the time I'm online which makes it hard to participate in games! some people have busy schedules! some people have restricted internet access! refusing to give you an extension because it would mess up the game for everyone else is both reasonable and not in any way discriminatory!
It still is an inconvenience to those who are in a different time zone, which is not of their control. In my dictionary, that could be classified as discrimination, but since they have no choice I don't. I still don't get why giving an extension would mess up the game, though. Maybe it would be slightly inconvenient, but definitely not as far as "mess up". I mean, I do get the part about it would have to apply to everyone; that is a fault in my proposal. However, it could be tweaked to make it more valid, but let me respond to your other points first because tweaking it now, as I see it, is probably a waste of time as there is no intention of implementing my suggestion.
Even if this idea became part of these rules, they are a guideline. GMs set games to how they want and run them how they want; these rules aren't usually enforced by moderators unless something unfair is going on. if you don't like how a game is run, don't play it! problem solved! moderators are not going to be going around making sure games run to your liking; that rather goes against the spirit of this forum, which is that GMs have a lot of freedom to set up their games.
I see. Since you're a moderator, I'm going to take your word that a game can be anything as long as it is fair, right?
'Not wanting to get up at 3am' is an excuse, whether you want to call it that or not. Asking to have a rule added because it would make mafia easier for you is 'catering' to you.
Okay, I guess "make excuses" is true, then. But I believe the others still valid; it won't just make it easier to me, also other mafia players.
Meh, I think we can skip the word choice thing; I know I brought it up, but I'm not going to listen to them if it keeps happening, so it's irrelevant.
Furthermore, Sunflower was largely civil and reasonable to you, and I can only assume you found it antagonising because you didn't get your way - if anything, you're antagonising her more. you suggesting this rule shortly after being killed in her game is obviously going to be read as passive-aggressive and rude whether you wanted it to or not. if you personally have suggestions for how she GMs or if you actually think what happened was unfair, you should be discussing it with her privately or with a Moderator, not in a public thread.
Maybe from an outside standpoint she was civil, but I read between her lines and I felt insulted. I apologise if it is read as passive-agressive and rude; I will state here that I am not trying to antagonise Sunflower with this suggestion in any way. Now that's clear, I don't think that was unfair, I just wanted to propose something.
And no, you don't get to complain about something that happened to you in a game, whine about the GM of said game and 'everybody else' being against you and then chalk it up to the GM being 'popular'. People have given you their reasons and you've ignored them. For someone who thinks they're 'confident in their debating skills', you would think that bringing ~popularity~ into a discussion where it's irrelevant and trying to gain sympathy because nobody agrees with you would be bad debating practice! for the record, I'm not really friends with any of these people (not that I don't like you guys, we just swim in different social ponds, if you will).
You know what? I asked plenty of my friends, and they all happen to agree with me. I actually said "if you think I'm the one being stubborn and arrogant, just say it", and they all agree with me (and not to insult, but one of them actually called my opposition "terribly arrogant"); bear in mind these friends criticise my writing and my classwork (including debate speeches) heavily. Since they're not members of TCoD their opinion isn't quite relevant but that definitely demonstrates that a friendship with someone makes them more likely on your side.
tl;dr: GMs set games to how they damn well want, if you don't like it, don't play, consider that maybe people tending to disagree with you all the time isn't their fault
Okay. I'm still in doubt about the fact that everyone disagrees with me is because of what they actually think. Still, if my opinion's not appreciated here, I'll just shut up. But anyway, I learnt a valuable lesson – using adjectives or other words to insult people passively is okay here, so I can do that in the future to strengthen my arguments. Yay!
But really, to be honest, even though I may have been arrogant in this thread, I actually genuinely thought it was best for the players, and that Sunflower was antagonising me. Whatever. Case closed, I lose.
(I am also genuinely frustrated at the people who post rude pictures depicting me, and I want to destroy them using my own pictures, but that would be hypocritical.)
