I took the liberty of editing a poll into your OP. Hope you don’t mind!
To do it on your own you click on the gear symbol on the far right of your post editor command panel, and select the poll option.
As for the question itself - I’m preferential to 72/24 and longer, mainly because I don’t have that much time everyday if shorter. In the end it’s really a function of how active everyone else is though - hundreds of posts a day are going to be hard no matter what!!
I find your mindset very hard to understand fferryllt, not wrong at all, in anyway, just, I don’t get it.
If it goes on for too long, isn’t it like a story without a resolution?
Don’t you want answers?
I mean there must be things that happen at the start of a game that would be very interesting to resolve but, weeks? months? later? who would care or even remember what they were.
If there’s a burning reason to lynch early, it happens. That’s the beauty of majority lynch. Players can control an earlier day end if they wish.
You can have more data upon which to make your decision. You have time to rethink, and the players under lynch threat have time to convince everyone else they’re mistaken. You’re able to put multiple people under pressure in a single game day and see how they react.
And, if the pace is too slow, you can go sign up for another game and play 2 or 3 games at once!
I was once alive in 12 games at the same time, and that was utterly insane.
I’m not a big fan of the long deadlines that a certain mafia site is so fond of. I think anywhere from 3 to 10 days is sufficient for day play, and am personally partial to 6/1 so that you have exactly one day/night cycle a week.
I do agree with the op in that it’s only acceptable to have less than a 24 hour night if the day is 24 hours or less.
