@NikR, sorry to complicate. Expecting it not to matter, I retract my evidence-less vote for @jean15paul because he seems to have enough haters for one lynching party.
Instead I cast an evidence-less vote for @chart94, who I keep expecting to be mafia, based mostly on his avatar. 

My avatar is glorious!! if anyone knows who is in the picture we can be friends!!!!!

You can still talk just not about the game. :)

You can vote during the day, which starts at 7am pacific. So no.

Your vote does not count at the end of the day if you are dead, regardless of whether you cast a vote before you died or not.

Emphasis mine.

I thought she could still talk about the game, just not her role?

Well there you go. I stand corrected.

@NikR does the moderator reveal the role when a person dies? I thought so from the last game. Obviously @tj_PE wasn't mafia since the mafia killed her, but was she doc or cop?

You may use this thread to vote and post about the game. Anyone (playing or not playing, eliminated or not) can use this thread to speculate, discuss, accuse, or otherwise participate in the game; just please make sure to follow regular EB forum guidelines.

@RBHeadge PE edited his previous post so posting it again. @tj_PE talk as you please :)

@tj_PE You can still post about the game, except that you can no longer convey your role in this game beyond what you had said when you were alive.

Only if lynched (voted out). Not if killed by mafia.

Yeah, it’d Be pretty cruel to ban someone from the de-facto spam thread, assuming they didn’t break any rules...

For background: The cop only learns if the target of an investigation is normal or not-normal townie. There is a strategic advantage to the town if the cop knows with certainty if a player is the doctor or not. Meanwhile the doctor has incentive to keep their role secret while they are alive, lest becoming the primary target for a nightkill. If dead already, the doctor can aid their former townie by announcing their previous role without risk.

By comparison, the mafia usually* gains no advantage by knowing the status of anyone they nightkill. *Unless they are doing some galaxy-brain social engineering - the sort of thing that will usually backfire spectacularly.

lynchings are public, both an "in game" and "out of game" and unveiling useful information is a necessary part of game mechanics.

I thought if you were killed you couldn't announce your role?

As long as we're learning stuff. How are the number of mafia member decided upon? Is that also random? I realize it has to be a number significantly below 50%. But it also seems that the actual number is a secret in during a game.

The dead person cannot announce their own role, but there’s nothing stopping an alive person from announcing the dead person’s role if they knew it.

It depends on the number of players, mostly. I’ve seen recommendations saying there should be at least a 3-to-1 ratio (or even 4-to-1) of town to mafia. But this is something we’re kind of experimenting with right now, so most of the moderators have been fairly conservative on this number to this point.

I've been wondering what we'll do come the PE-results wait period?

Obviously, there will be another spam thread. But will this game continue during that "8-10 weeks"? On the one hand, it's a good hook for the newbies to stay on the site, get to know the vets, and be distracted from the exam. OTOH, it could diminsh the proper spam thread, and more importantly we have a tendency to really piss each other off every 2-3 rounds - so maybe not the best way to welcome people to the site.
