    I will leave this up to the players. If three or more players agree, I will allow the WotC to go through.

    It is 'Wisdom of the Crowds'. Basically, if a certain number of people would policy lynch someone on day one, WotC lets it play out pre-game.

    I don't want moonglow to sign up based on flaking out of every game he/she has signed up for and strong propensity for being banned and needing a replacement.

    Edit: It's supposed to be a private, PM to mod with reason thing, but I prefer to let people know why I don't like them.

    WotC, also known as Wisdom of the Crowds, is a method of policy-lynching players before the game even starts. (Link).

    I've started using it offsite, and would prefer if players PM me about WotC'ing someone. Unlike the main site, actual reasons are required to want someone WotC'd.

    Maybe Joining the Fray?

    [MENTION=27143]BluesMistress[/MENTION]
    [MENTION=49728]ScarletRage[/MENTION]
    [MENTION=39852]TheOldSchool[/MENTION]

    Backup Players:

    Sameech


    Making some last-minute touches to account for the influx of players. I generally don't like using WotC out of the main site, but if three people agree that Moonglow shouldn't play I'll follow through on that. If Moonglow goes on a vacation again during the game then that's it. If Moonglow remaining in is a dealbreaker, then I'll WotC him. If he's in and goes on a vacation, [MENTION=48997]sameech[/MENTION] will hopefully replace in.

    Waiting a bit more, because TheOldSchool and BluesMistress expressed interest in signing up earlier, and Scarlet may be coming back, too. ChrisL is another possibility. I know, the wait is killer, but will likely be worth it. :D

    Its always worth it to wait for more players :D

    That does really suck for anyone killed on day one though - more players means more weeks of game.
