Default Deadlines in Mafia

So, here's a post about using deadlines in your Mafia games.

What are Deadlines?

Deadlines are basically time limits. If the players don't do an action(s) before a certain time, the game moves on without them. The actions can be any in-game action, such as a lynch or night power. Deadlines on Lynches may end with the most voted getting lynched.

How long should the limits be?

I find that for an in-game day, five to seven real-life days work. For an in-game night, two to three real-liefe days.

Why use Deadline?

Deadlines keep the game active. They are an insective to actually play the game after signing up. Many people on this forum see to have a problem with this, but add a dealine, and they're talking. It also keeds the game going.

When should I use a Deadline?

Always. A game with no deadlines is a game that lasts for over three months, meaning other hosts don't get a chance! It's just good hosting to have deadlines.

So, Deadlines. Use them. Or else

You don't need to whistle at me. I know my game is taking longer than it should. Life's been getting in the way and I haven't been able to update it for a while. Apologies, but I'll try to get back on track.

I wasn't really whistling at you. Just the slowness of the game.
