We should be VERY well versed with the rules for lynching. I've copied them for your convenience, and I've taken the liberty to highlight the stuff that is critical for our success:

Voting

Players vote for whom to lynch each day by sending the moderator a Private Message with either a choice of player, or No-Lynch. Voting can be done any time that day, and a player may change his vote at any time before the game ends.

Please make the subject line “Day X: Vote for PLAYER” or “Day X: Vote for PLAYER, changing for PLAYER”.

Private Message is the only way to officially cast a vote. Anything a player says in discussion is non-binding. Players may state who they voted for, though they may lie.

At midnight, the votes cast for the day are tallied. The player with most votes for them is lynched. No accusation, majority, or quorum is needed. If the No-Lynch option wins, nobody is lynched.

While each player’s vote is secret as the day goes on, after the day ends, all players’ votes are revealed. Past votes are kept as part of record and can be used as a basis for discussion. It is not revealed whether the lynched player is Mafia or had any special abilities.

If a player dies, his vote for that day isn’t counted or announced.

Ties are broken by looking at who had more votes the previous day, which is then tiebroken by the day before that, and so on. If this fails to resolve the tie, the player for whom the last vote cast came earliest is lynched.

So what you're saying is, we should vote ASAP.

It's important that we:
A. don't always vote as a solid block.
B. we vote early if we can corroborate evidence.
C. remember to vote.
D. generally are okay with No-lynching.

I already expressed to them that I'm fine with it. But I haven't sent in a vote yet. I'll do so now, I guess. It's by sending Alex a PM, right?

The beauty of a forum is that you can double check stuff already said...

Another very important thing is that we are careful how the Fake IDs vote.

Fake ID 2 is fine for voting with consensus or against someone with strong evidence, but from time to time it should vote not with me. Brogan knows that it should be with someone good, since that person is tied to me. If more people I know die however, the "possibility the mafia got it from a random kill" increases, which would then allow it to vote strictly mafia. Or not. Whatever we deem is best at that time.

Not sure what to do with Fake ID 3 yet. Maybe just let it sleep dormantly for the time being.
