So I think I asked this before (forget if it was here or in the tribal thread) but does anybody have any idea if the tribal names tell us anything?

Lathum, reading back over the thread, you seemed to think it somewhat likely that the volunteers were wolves. Was there anything in your tribal thread that made you think this?

I wasn't trying to trick you into giving anything up. But when it comes time to find the wolves, I think the tribes are going to have to work together.

Im not sure my thoughts on the volunteers being evil, but i do believe at least 3 of the 4 teams have evil in them. I do firmly believe the teams will have to work together, but im not yet sure who to work with. With time though, i think its the only route to victory.

I gave you a direct reason why I felt this was the case. I guess that wasn't good enough

C’mon in Lupus and Howard. You’ll see that Chief Rum and Lonestargirl were voted off in tribal last night. Everyone else here? Oh good. Glad to see the wolves didn’t get you.

Today’s challenge is about voting. In Werewolf there is little that is harder to counter than the last second vote switch. Wolves can do this to manipulate the numbers. Villagers can do this to catch the wolves unsuspecting. We’re going to be simulating that excitement today. In a moment I’m going to reveal 9 times to you.

What you must do is be the first to post a vote at that time. Votes should be formatted in your team color and be bold (so, for instance, Oz’s should look like
Vote Barkeep . If you’re the first to post on, or after, the designated time your tribe gets 3 points. Second 2, third 1, and fourth none. If your tribe posts before the time or more than one person posts for a tribe, it’s zero points. Also, if the person you vote for is a person who is doing the round for their team, and it is posted before that person’s vote, their vote will not count. Oh and I wouldn’t want to be the person who got the most votes at the end of the day. It’s not quite as bad as a normal vote, but it’s still not too pleasant. Every person on a tribe must do at least one round, but other than that there is no restriction about who can do a round.
Winning tribe gains immunity from a wolf attack, losing two tribes will go to tribal council.

The times are:

9:53
10:30
12:00
1:15
3:00
5:00
7:30
9:48
9:59 (votes must be in by 10:00)

Survivors ready? Go

Didn't mean to gloat. I just went from "Damn! I wasn't first!" to "Hey that doesn't look bold, maybe I am first!" pretty quickly and got over-excited.

I actually thought you were messing with me until I received verification that it wasn't bold. I changed browser fonts now though!

Rule clarification (see path you were right there would be something to moan about):
Each tribe may only post ONCE for each time period.

So Alan's post counts, but similar situations would not in the future.

Also a vote for a particular time period must be in before the next period begins.

What does this mean:

Also, if the person you vote for is a person who is doing the round for their team, and it is posted before that person’s vote, their vote will not count.

So would this chitchat afterwords count as posts as well? Ie: only have this thread for voting today and nothing else?

Nevermind. See Jonathan's vote.

Alan: If your team successfully predicts who is doing it for another team, their vote is invalidated. So in this case Jonathan's vote invalidated Ardent's vote.

It should be bolded if you want it to count.

Back in college I was student government President. One of the things I did at that point was clean up the Constitution since it had internal contradictions and such. As part of that I defined the words must, shall, and may in an axillary document. This should verses must reminds me of those days.

The rule to have people bold their votes is not one unique to this game and so I think giving your team 3rd place, and issuing the clarification, was the correct handling of the situation.
