Shadow Orb Scooby-Doo alt account roulette

List of participants
-Trickster
-GenyaArikado
-Nazja
-Bolvar
-Slowpoke
-Erthad
-Arashi
-Anansi

So yeah, let's make this place mysterious. But even more mysterious than avatars, we'll have a shitload of "newcomers". The base principle is the same as the avatar roulette. But...it will be with alt-accounts instead.

How to participate
1-You manifest your interest in this thread.
2-I gather characters.
3-When the time is right, I contact you via PM with your alt-account name and avatar.
4-You create the alt-account.
5-You are not allowed to use it until the roulette officially starts.
6-When the roulette begins, you are only allowed to post under your alt-account except in a few threads (Rules and regs/Fan-art/Diplomacy).
7-Players need to guess who you are.
8-If someone guesses your identity, you need to sig the revelation message to continue posting under that account.

How to guess someone
To unmask someone, you will need clues. You can only accuse a poster once in 24hrs, so choose wiselly. When calling out a poster to reveal their identity, you will need to show off your clues. If you guess right, congratz. If you guess wrong, your plan has failed and you will have to wait 48hrs until you can guess again. I am the only one who can confirm or debunk an accusation. Even if you are called out, you don't say a word until I debunk or confirm the accusation.

If you have any questions, just ask. I will consider character requests.

The zombie island movie is my favorite, because it's real and really scary.

This is terrible and has the potential to ruin the forum in minutes. People will start bitching about Lordaeron all over the place and probably send death threats to others because ''Hey'' it's just an alt account!

I will have the account lists and will send a copy to administrators and moderators. I will remove any abusive player from the game.

Alt-accounts won't have the right to PM others. Only me for gameplay reasons.

It's not like the mods can't find out who's who and banish them - forever and always.

Can a mod/admin add a poll with "We got a mystery to solve!" and "The plan failed." as options please?

You have a pretty low opinion of posters here. We all know each other and only a few really hate others so I don't think people would start being bully. What I see on this forum is more of a "loving to hate realtionship" than a "true hate" relationship.

You can change your attitude a little. And I am sure a few would adopt your distinct attitude not to be found out.

Zombie Island is my second favorite Scooby Doo. Mystery Incorporated is the best be far in my opinion.

Yeah Bolvar is ok and handclaw saw the thread without replying, wich means he's probably fine with it.

I didn't exactly ENDORSE the idea.

But I don't have a problem with people screwing around with alt accounts.

Only big government communists insist on knowing your identity all the damned time. Except when they want you to vote Democrat.

Personally, IF this would happen, I don't think participants should be allowed to post all over the place... Such a forum game should be self-contained and not disturb the rest of the forum. So, only in one thread. The avatar roulette for example doesn't disturb the daily postings, while everyone trying to hide their identity would.

Ehem, to quote you:

If you don't like it, just shut up and don't participate.
Well, if someone doesn't like it, and doesn't participate, it would still be forced on everyone not participating, as they'd still post everywhere.

Just because I don't reply, doesn't mean I'm okay with it.

I don't really see why. What's the difference between seeing a Smokeblader post and seeing a Spooky Space Kook post? It would just give a thematic for 2-3 weeks. People could still discuss lore. It's just that bullshit argument wouldn't happen because they would hide their identity.

Ok. But since you replied to the thread, does that mean you wish to participate to the roulette?

Well, as I said: not everyone wants to participate. People who don't participate'd like to know who they are talking to. Not knowing who you are talking to is the point of the game. Hence: The game is not self-contained.

Also, given how alt-accounts were abused in the past, you can guess how much I trust users with them.

I agree with this. It's a bad and annoying idea.

It seems like it'd be fun for maybe a day, then just get annoying and tiresome.

Would it be okay if contained to General Discussion and World of Warcraft Discussion? No alt-accounts in the lore forum.

And honestly, it's just like name roulette, except you don't see the join date.
