I am sorry about the delay on this. I was away at school all day and just got the chance to start this.

What is going on? I expected reggie to be fired, as she missed the vote, but bobbi and jpost? Neither of them voted in the majority, and jpost was the one the majority were voting for! It only makes sense if they didn't vote either. So we lost 2 cleared players in the same round.

Yeah, I'm not real sure what to make of that either. Maybe they thought they voted and it didn't save? I've heard of that happening before.

I'm not sure what to do yet, but I want to make sure I at least get a safety vote in. Umm.. PYTHON again.

Following the trend the boss has set (pointing a different to a different region each round) I did some googling and the only language region that I can find that says "ya" to address a person is Ireland and Irish Gaelic. Irish language site So I now have no clue whether the boss is from Canada, America, Australia, NZ or Ireland..

Also, jpost posted last round that if GA wasn't the boss then he was going to be fired? Well he got fired.. so I take it he's cleared? I don't understand. I asked him to explain but he never did before he got fired.

Cleared list:

jpost (fired)
Reggie(fired)
Rhythmic


So we still only have one cleared..

I'm going to safety for Gizzer for now since I'm really lost.

Round 3 Voting list:

cccgirl : ppjones
Gizzer : RGW4
Rhythmic : PYTHON
JamFish : Elios
GreenApples27: PYTHON
PYTHON : JamFish
kitty-cat : cccgirl
RGW4 : JamFish
Elios : JamFish

jpost voted for GreenApples, then got fired. You can't be fired if you voted for the boss, and considering he even saw it coming I am pretty sure his vote was locked in.

There is no way that jpost could have been fired if he actually voted for GreenApples. There was a majority of votes for jpost. Only people who voted for jpost would have been lemmings.

The only way that someone who isn't a lemming could be fired is if he doesn't vote and becomes a mandatory fire.

Edit: We already talked about this when bobbi tried to say she was cleared after talanpoe got fired. GreenApples isn't cleared just because jpost was fired, and I am not cleared just because bobbi was fired.

But then how did jpost not notice that he wasn't locked in? Go read his last post from last round. He predicted his firing if GA wasn't boss.. I'm really confused..

I've read his post, and it doesn't make sense. Even GreenApples questioned him, because it is simply not the way the game works.

The Rules:
Lemmings
Whoever gets a majority of the votes is called the Candidate... If the Candidate is not The Boss, then everyone who voted for the Candidate is called a Lemming.

The Boss wants people who think for themselves. Therefore, all lemmings will be placed on the firing list.

Firing List
The Boss is only allowed to fire people who are on the Firing List. The Firing List contains the following people: 1. Lemmings 2. The Rat (If the rat forgets to hack the network, or if the Boss has received 25% or more of the votes) 3. Anyone that the moderator adds to the list for rule infraction or disorderly conduct.

Wow...sharp shift in the grammar from the Boss...Maybe jpost was the Rat? Oh wait, no, that makes no sense. Hmm. Well, have to go now. Safety vote for JamFish now. Be back later.

Well, even if we aren't sure how jpost got on the list, remember back in Round 1 when he called the boss "narrow-minded," and we were all joking about it? Turns out he did get fired after all... Nobody's going to make fun of the Boss again in this game...He also voted randomly, as the Boss so eloquently pointed out in the memo. Still doesn't explain how he got on the list.

Just reread the rules again. What if he was the Rat, and he 'forgot to hack the network'? Could be why. We'll see, but that makes the most sense to me so far.

I totally agree with Gizzer... jpost & bradon forgot to lock in a vote, or yes, one of them was the rat and forgot to hack the system (but as a boss, that would not make sense to fire the rat without the rat's firing helping to clear the boss)... and the bottom line here is that we lost two players without clearing anyone. Reggie was expected. I also think the rat is still with us, unless it was Reggie - who, if saved, would be useless to the boss cause.

No vote right now... I will be around later and tomorrow...

Ya, I know what you mean kitty-cat. I'm not sure if the boss put that there for character or not.. s/he seems to be going all over the place with his/her memos. Jpost could have been the rat.. but I agree with RGW4, it wouldn't make sense for the boss to fire the rat at this point in the game, especially if it didn't help clear him.

Unless jpost forgot to hack on purpose, stated that to hint at the boss in the hope the boss WOULD fire him and therefore clear himself. So if jpost WAS the rat, then the only potential boss is GreenApples.. but that's all theory.. I think I'm over-analyzing again

I use "ya" in place of "yes", the boss used "ya" in place of "you" and "right". not quite the same. If I had said "Ya, I know what ya mean kitty-cat". I'd see your argument, but I said "Ya, I know what you mean kitty-cat".

I'll admit, I do like to use ya, yah, yeh, yes, yup, yuppers and many variations.. all for the word yes, or a positive confirmation of a question Don't think I've every said "ya" for you.. it reminds me of kids at my school trying to sound cool or overly country and I say "eh" in place of right most of the time, don't really type it though.

Edit - confirmed

Sure thing, not voting for self though. I don't want to be a lemming.

Note to boss: I'm not being "eenie meanie" as you put it. I'm changing my vote to GreenApples since he makes the most sense (read my post somewhere above for reasoning) in regards to the jpost stuff as well as being from NZ and being a teenager.

I know it's important to get a clear, but I can't join this vote. It's TOO obvious. I feel like we're being fed a red herring. JamFish could be the rat. But I don't see boss here.

I'm pretty sure the boss is not GA. This is not like anything I've EVER seen him post. I think he would get a headache just writing that stuff.

My hunch is that the boss is ppjones, Python, Gizzer, or Jayo. Voting ppjones for now, subject to change.

Posted: 09:25PM Sep 28, 2012

Nice to know someone other than me knows I'm not the boss. I'm not the rat either but I'd guess you wouldn't take my word for it .. I don't play with GA or anyone often enough to know their style as boss.

Why do you think ppjones, Python, Gizzer or Jayo? I mean besides hunch.. do we have any reasoning? Because I'd be glad to join a majority that might actually take us somewhere.

EDIT: joining the python vote, may as well try to get a majority or something or help form one. There's evidence against him (see rhythmic's post) from round one, and Rhythmic is clear and voting Python.. so it seems like a save vote, and it lies in cccgirl's hunches. lol. more than willing to change if someone has good reasoning.. Would LOVE a majority on GreenApples as I suspect him the most, but I guess it depends on everyone else.

Edit again: Just remember Rhythmic being clear also means I shouldn't try to majority with him as we should be preserving him. We don't seem to have too many actives at this point.. don't really care who I vote for. Well, except me since I don't want to be a lemming. er.. ya.. tired.. not making sense.. Depending on what you guys say I'll switch my vote in the morning since there are still 19 hours left.

I'm sorry I haven't been any help this game. I'm at a con and I keep forgetting to check in.

I had already locked in a safety vote for Jam before reading the discussion. Jam is a very active, highly verbose player and the Boss's memos just kind of strike me along the same lines. Plus the "ya" thing - if it's something Jam uses occasionally as an affirmative, that may have given them the idea to use it a whole lot more in Boss mode. Then trying to muddy the tracks by being the first to bring it up and do some research on it. And now trying to steer towards a different majority instead of accepting being cleared like most players do. I dunno... That's just kind of where my mind is.

So, leaving my vote on Jam. I will try to get back on in the am to see what the rest of you are gonna do.

Posted: 01:18AM Sep 29, 2012

Considering GA has added to the PYTHON majority I am keeping my vote as is for now.

@Elios, awesome!! Hope you have fun XD aah I can't wait for my next con. As for the research.. pay attention I've been doing it EVERY round with things within the boss's memo.. not just the "ya" so you can't really peg me for that. Also, if you read my posts, I am perfectly fine with being cleared. I simply don't want to vote myself for a lemming and if there's a potential clearing that makes more sense then me using a term that a LOT of people use, I'm going to go for it. Not to mention I've been debating asking the boss to fire me as I'm on the Run for the Cure committe and the run is this weekend. After that I have a total of 7 projects due at school. I'm not sure if I can balance both braingle and this game (which is slightly time consuming if you want to understand everything and be active) and my real life. It seems stupid for you to all clear me.. when I might be getting fired. It'd be another useless round for you guys.

That where my train of thought is right now anyway, so YA, believe me or not.. it's up to you. Just trying to save your jobs

The whole "ya" thing...I occasionally use that online too. Haven't in this game, but I just don't think we can assume it's JamFish just from that. After all, this is online, and you kinda have an unlimited time to edit your posts. If I were the boss, anyway, I would avoid using that at all costs. Or maybe JamFish is trying to use reverse psychology.

Should I be pleased or not, that people are voting for me?! Sorry that I am not contributing much, but I am trying to follow all that is going on here. Believe me, I am trying to learn this game! I think that I will try a safety vote for Jamfish this round.

It no longer really counts as a safety on my PYTHON, you'll be put on the lemming list and fired. @Kitty, my point exactly.. -facepalm- Well.. not the reverse psychology bit, though I do love me some reverse psychology. I'm always paranoid about it.

With the round ending, I am keeping my vote on ppjones.

JamFish, to answer your earlier question, I narrowed down to the 4 people I mentioned based on past experience playing with these folks, and trying to figure out who out of those folks could be the boss, and whose playing style is so divergent from the memos that they are all but eliminated. The 4 people I mentioned either strike me as most likely able to write these weird memos, or I don't know them well enough to clear them (in my head).

Also, can you clarify who you switched your vote to? Would like to post a new voting list below to be helpful for Round 4.

The voting list at the top of the page gets edited every time someone changes their vote in a round. My vote is up there. I vote Elios though.

I guess that makes sense.. when I have more time later I'll look through those four and see which one has the most potential with what clues we've found so far.

Edit: @Gizzer, ya, with the amount of in-actives slowly popping up, or less active people, it doesn't make much of a difference whether or not I disappear for the majority of tomorrow and my activity slows a bit.

Edit: This is just a quick check in but I'll be gone from 5am till who knows when tomorrow for Run for The Cure.. woot. I'll TRY to check in before I leave in the morning and then I have no clue what time I'll manage to be back at.

LINK - 12th post down I answered Shadows' question revolving maths, and how I suck at it and would take any extra marks.

LINK - 16th post down I talked about my maths exam and how I feel I did bad and that I never do good.

LINK - 11th post from the bottom, I say I am going to a maths exam and in brackets I put "(yuck!)" proving my hate of maths.

So, I hope this is enough for you guys.
