OK. So I'm sorry if I appear argumentative. That's genuinely not the intent, its just that this is, as you know, my second one of these games and I'm just anxious to make sure I'm doing things right.
Let's use Josietta(J) as an example of a known evil and SunshineSparkle(SS) as a known good, just to avoid poisoning any waters through name choice. Day three, hypothetically, the voting is between J and SS, could go either way. The baddies are watching. They don't want to all jump in and vote SS because it'll look suspicious so they decide to hold off and only vote SS if necessary and then only in the numbers necessary.
What we'd potentially see at that stage, then, is a number of late votes for SS. Which is game relevant and, I dunno, IC information. It's a tactical late vote. Am I understanding right that that can't be taken into account at all? Because of:
When a player posts is relevant ONLY to when they are online and available, not their role in the game.
come up with a valid reason for the vote
trump that? Because if it does, that seems to be an open license to vote based on their voting time, but if it doesn't it seems quite a large handicap for the goodies? Or have I misunderstood completely? If so, apologies for wasting time.
EDIT: And what about the situation say on day 2. Chelemar posted saying, in essence, she was going to think about it (again just using Chelemar as we know her status in the game, not singling her out.) Can we then take the time she chose to vote into account as we know it could have been earlier?
Really sorry, I'm just confused.
