No. There are poll-based host sign-ups and it is required to have played at least one game before one can host. New players are welcome at any time though, and welcome to the forums!

Well it depends, if you mean a potential mafia game CONCEPT, then yes, however, In terms of running and hosting a game, no, you need to submit your game in a host signups, which the Game Masters put up from time to time, and then when you submit a game, they have to review it aswell as any other games submitted and afterwards a poll is run and whoever wins the poll will be the host of that game.
EDIT:
Oops, hadn't seen that Cedur already replied

In fact, you can already join M47 if you've figured out how the game works and if you're interested. Backups are being looked for.

I am very bad at detective work which is why I follow bandwagons and/or other's beliefs. Can you please tell me how to spot a Mafioso as a Townie/Doctor?

Cos she thinks the servers are unmoderated.

Dear Mum, read the welcome channel and check for yourself that this server is moderated and that there's no NSFW stuff going on. :x

in response to investigating and playing in general - I've started working on a playing guide last year but pretty much abandoned it, I'm sorry for that. But as this game has shown, you can sometimes be wrong even with your most convincing theories. I detected xDestroy and Warlock as a collaborating duo around Night 3 and by Night 4 I was absolutely sure they were maf, that's why I didn't even worry about ShadowStar although I TOTALLY should have since he asked so much about my night action lol

also double-posting instead of editing only holds for game threads, not the whole subforum

It's honestly just something that comes with experience. I've played Mafia for a while and though due to time issues, etc. haven't played the last few games, however reading through was able to identify two Mafia and two Town specials by part way through day 1. You just start to get vibes and see patterns in behaviour that tend towards someone being Mafia, etc.

Hello, everyone!

So, I am aware that many of you have been curious regarding Mafia's future. We have had numerous discussions regarding what we want to do with Mafia going forward, and we've finally come to a decision on what we want to do.

I am please to announce that Mafia WILL be returning permanently! However, we are making some serious changes.

First off, the Game Masters Team. As you probably guessed, myself and Pseudo will be taking up the mantle, as well as ShadowStarX, who you may recognise as one of our Discord Chanops. We may recruit new GMs in future should we need new additions to the team, but for now it'll just be the three of us.

Secondly, Host Signups will only be held once every few games, rather than once every game. The reason for this is that we feel that the host signups were a large contributing factor to the toxicity that caused Mafia to shut down in the first place, as it seemed that host signups added a layer of competitiveness to the game, when in reality we should be playing Mafia for fun.

Thirdly, We're only going to be hosting regular Mafia games during the summertime, since that is usually the time of year when most people are available to play the game. Do not fret, however! We will still be hosting Mafia events every now and then outside of the summer season, so be on the lookout for announcements regarding those events.

Our aim with these changes are to try to reduce the level of toxicity that plagued Mafia the last few times we've been running regular games, while also encouraging activity from both veterans and newbies. We hope these changes will allow Mafia to continue to thrive in the foreseeable future, without running into the same problems as before. We will be cracking down on inactivity and toxic behaviour with gamebans (in addition to forum warnings in extreme cases).

See you in the village!
Warlock

I feel as if a 2-3 day lull between games and signups would help benefit activity because although everyone enjoys playing mafia, it's kind of tiresome to have a game, immediate signups just back to back to back to back.

I wonderif Mystery game sign ups still require that previous game host because that would make mystery games even harder to get hosted.

What is a good defense if a lot of people agree that I am Mafia and I am actually a Townie? Claiming doesnt do good.
