Title: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Chiral of Doom on September 13, 2017, 05:06:34 PM
Hey! It's KKE here!

I know a lot of you guys are interested in hosting a TWG, but really hadn't gotten the chance to make a successful bid or don't know where to start, I have decided to make this topic for you.

So here is the deal. I will be accepting up to 2 people (however it depends on sign ups and activity to determine whether I should just take 1 or 2 users) to get to shadow me as I host the game.

As a shadowing "TWG student", be prepared for
- receiving game related PMs
- having the responsibility of the knowledge of a full rolelist
- potentially updating the game if told to (like making a post for who dies/who gets lynched, etc)
- discussion on your experience of host shadowing

Who Qualifies:
- people who want to know what it feels like to host but haven't had successful bids
- people who are set to host a game after mine but haven't hosted yet
- people who just love game discussion and wanna sit out a game to help out with hosting/know everything going on without being host

What other players should expect:
- PMs must go to me and the shadow(s)

Just please post here on what you think of this or if you are interested. Thanks! :)

Users Interested:
- Chasi Cheesemaster Weran
- Typo
- Direraven
- Stormbreaker
- Ravine Roth
- StarfallQueen
- TSO
- Saburo

Possible Mentors
- Coach Huzzy
- Widow
- Qazikol
- Thick Apple
- Lu

Post by: Chiral of Doom on September 13, 2017, 06:47:12 PM
BTW, considering more people will be interested than the number of spots available for my game, I HIGHLY recommend any other set hosts of TWG to do something like this.

Please contact me in this topic or PM me if you are set to host a TWG and would like to serve as a mentor for 1-2 players interested in hosting.

Actually, I'd say the large majority of games become a lot more entertaining when you either know what people are saying in PMs or know the rolelist.

Can I answer about myself to Nickito's question? I wanted to host this game because I wanted to see how this experience is.

The PMs can probably become a movie i assume XD

As someone who was too busy with academic things and didn't play Perfection, I did go to Nickito and told him to tell me the role list and what was going on and it was really cool. I also heard it all from Qazikol's perspective as Clairvoyant so that was pretty cool

I'm definitely interested, I know I've not really been around, but its kind of thing I feel like I could do, since I already know I'm most likely not playing the game.

That's one thing
Having every PM sent will just make the PM limit a bigger challenge


Title: Re: TWG Pathological Lying Opportunity! [WANTED: People interested in hosting TWG]
Post by: Kowhai on September 17, 2017, 02:46:47 PM
I mean
People don't have a problem with messaging everything to the host, so I doubt it would be a problem

Yeah true, maybe I will just keep it at one interested player per game, as I hit the PM limit within 15 minutes when me, Ataino, Stormbreaker, greenviceroy, Lyka, and Nickito were all sending group messages in Demon Within, and it really was a pain then, but, that literally happened only that once.


Title: Re: TWG Pathological Lying Opportunity! [WANTED: People interested in hosting TWG]
Post by: Nickito on September 17, 2017, 06:25:03 PM
I don't have a problem, just limit it to one person
or (imo) better yet just give someone the role list and fill them in on what's going on. No PM limit, no shadow limit


Title: Re: TWG Pathological Lying Opportunity! [WANTED: People interested in hosting TWG]
Post by: Leia on September 17, 2017, 06:31:14 PM
I disagree- I think that if you want this "shadow" hosting thing to work, they need to be receiving all PMs and occasionally updating so they can learn and experience hosting. There's a difference between me giving Kassem the rolelist and discussing it together periodically and actually having him update and receive PMs.


Title: Re: TWG Pathological Lying Opportunity! [WANTED: People interested in hosting TWG]
Post by: Nickito on September 17, 2017, 07:46:38 PM
I mean tbf I want TWG to move away from PMs as much as possible, but that's not happening any time soon

Yeah, I want the shadows to have a feel for what it is like actually doing the hosting, and they aren't going to have experience if they just get summaries. I will consider limiting it to one person though, as the PM limit is a pain.

We can also always try to get the administrators to remove the PM limit as a whole, because I don't see a need for it.

Right so far I have Widow and Coach Huzzy down for mentoring.
Is anyone else interested? If so, pleaseee say so and I highly recommend experienced hosts doing this as

1.) it's not hard
2.) it doesn't take much extra effort

A shadow is like a student

A mentor is like a teacher. You only qualify for student as you haven't hosted before or gotten a bid on the BPT.

Alright so, I believe Temmie is being the current shadow for the current game right now. I can have a system where I will let mentors pick who they want on a first come first serve basis, but I am not sure what others would think of that. Or I can just have things randomized.

Since Qazikol is up next, I guess he can just tell me who he wants for the shadowing thing(or if he wants to randomize it) and how many people he would like to have as a shadow.

Wow that's impressive I just do everything in google notes

The way I see it, shadowing is more to get the experience of hosting without having a bid. Speaking of which, what are y'alls timezones @ people who wanted to shadow
GMT/UTC

I am overwhelmed by school for the next week or two

I have nothing foreseeable in the near future making me busy.

nope, none at all, school's not really a problem as I am always active after school anyway.

Yes, the shadow is blankin.

can someone mentor me


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Chiral of Doom on December 17, 2017, 06:24:11 PM
idk
if sign ups are looking rough for C
i might host alone


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Abu on December 17, 2017, 06:31:07 PM
By the way, we have decided that I will mentor ZechAkari if he dies early or if we get enough sign-ups in 2 days (exceedingly unlikely).


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System

That would mean he can't be revived though, and as such potentially mess with the game


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Bandero on December 17, 2017, 07:08:31 PM
Yeah, that game has an  Angaqquk in it so you can't mentor him once he dies


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Abu on December 17, 2017, 07:30:38 PM
Good point. I’ll figure something out.

Maybe he can be a mentor for something else like A Normal Day Outside. Plus, Zech is bidding An Abnormal Evening Inside.


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Chiral of Doom on December 17, 2017, 07:59:36 PM
If sign ups are going well for C, I coudl let him mentor for me but, I might be more restrictive than I would usually be since it's an important milestone TWG



Also, I recomend making a forum Facebook account for TWG if you ever plan on doing any co-host/mentoring with me. It takes very quick, and me and Lu did it. It made things like wayyy easier.

The person being mentored only watches what the host does. It is supposed to be a learning experience. For example, ZechAkari is not sure how one would announce a Vigilante death, or a Wolfsbane kill. Though someone could give him the answers, there are more things he would not know unless he was mentored by someone else.

Though, at the end the host could ask the mentor for their input on, say, MVPs.

Nah, if the person being mentored only watches what I'd do, that would be kinda boring and dull

I would have the shadow help me on stuff on Facebook and vote tallying/etc/getting the night actions


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Abu on December 17, 2017, 08:07:34 PM
Isn't that a shadow?

Typo, fixed

Person being mentored is different than a shadow.

I mean, I use those terms synonymously..

Proposition - no mentoring or shadows, go all in and do co hosts


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System

I reckon people should be allowed to choose what they think works best, regardless of your particular preference, Nick

blankin and I made a google doc because she didn’t have a forum Facebook. I think that it was a bit easier than the Facebook group-  you just need to change the share settings and you don’t need a google account to edit in it. And you can stay anonymous- you’ll just show up as an Anonymous [insert animal here]

Agreed, but we probably should make some type of definition as to what is what.

Shadowing and co-hosting seem to effectively be the same, and so those should be merged.


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Nickito on December 18, 2017, 07:21:16 AM
Shadow - does nothing, just watches
Co host - actively takes a role in the game

No, a shadow is supposed to actively be taking a role because the host is busy.

You're thinking of someone being mentored (mentee?)


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Nickito on December 18, 2017, 07:32:41 AM
That's what a shadow is
You're just describing a type of co host


Title: Re: TWG Mentor System
Post by: Abu on December 18, 2017, 07:41:33 AM
Then why do people always ask for shadows because they are busy with exams?

The terms are being used interchangeably, which may lead to confusion.
