Spam spam spam (Day 1 Spam)

Not the kind with cardstock and pawns. Mostly play by post Mafia so far.

me too! I'm excited to getting to know you guys better. Also I'm really really amused that this game has most of the cultist contigent + most of last game's mafia contigent.

Aestrix, how do you feel about learning that your daughter is a wicked little girl?

I am rather broken up about it! I don't think it was MY influence that caused her to become wicked, but I will pray devoutly to come to the answer. I thank our God that she can be purified. Via death. :D

Yay, mafia! Being in one of the actually-informed factions is always so much fun.

Guys, I found a security flaw. If you're not signed into the secret forum, searching a user's posts will only show ones that were in public forums. This is good, but it means that the number of matches in the search won't match their postcount.

Example: look at search.php?author_id=98&sr=posts. Note the number of matches. Sign out, then view the page again. Note that there are fewer matches.

I'm fairly certain that no one who's not mafia is going to think to do this. I hope very much that the traitor does not mention it, though--it seems unsporting. It could also become a problem in future games.

And all of our "Posts" number which is beside our name in each post is going up really fast because we're all spamming in here :/

Shit shit shit.

Hopefully nobody will count to make sure it matches??? I think most people will assume it's off site like the cult in the last game, it's still worrying.

Edit: saw shoal's post. Where should we go???

In the Forum Manager edit your admin forums. In the "Enable / Disable Features" section set

"Count Posts Made in this Forum Towards User Post Counts" to No

I think it's fine to keep posting in here for the moment, but turning off postcount in this forum should happen ASAP (and definitely before the next game starts, now that we all know about the issue and could exploit it when not mafia).
