Psych question submitted!

While you wait, you can check out these two cool things:

1. Find ASR4 here and see how these games run.
2. Find player statistic sheets here. These will be updated at the start and end of each round.

This is my 20th WTB moderation!

O hai! Welcome to Jarmihi's Fabulous Game Parlor! (PARTY! -- open in new tab for ultima-fun!)
In this game, the Active Store bazaar makes a freak return as I am bored as all get out of my vacation.

You players can purchase items which allow you to "break" the game. In order to earn points to purchase the items, you must be an active player. Each post that follows the rules is worth one point. Completing challenges will earn you more points. Some items are easy to get and unlimited in number, while others require you to complete challenges to be able to purchase and are few in number if not singular.

In Round 0, if you post once, you earn a point before the game even begins!


Also, if you all could post the time zone in which you currently reside, that would be great for time co-ordination. Thanks! -- Jarmihi

This game needs to be underway by March 5 or I'll have to cancel it.

Because people have lives, jobs, educations, kids, whatever. This has only been up for a few hours. There's a bit of waiting between rounds. If that's not for you, perhaps a different game will better suit your tastes.

Jarmihi!! You still mod WTB! I loved your games in the past and I have high expectations of this one. No pressure, though.

I'm in IST temporarily.

I will guess at what you meant to ask- "You're in India?" yes. "You're an Indian?" Ethnically, yeah. I don't really live in India, though. It's temporary.

Hey guys! It's my first time playing "Who's the Boss", so go easy on me?

Anyways, I'm in Central Time Zone - and Princess, I'm also ethnically Indian! Though not in India currently...

Welcome, shrutibax! I'm flattered that you chose my game to be your first. However, I should warn you that my games add a good amount of complication to the typical WTB game. Do be sure you check out Da Rulez before you play. Good luck!

Hello, Jarmihi. I've never played in any of your games before, but if you're qualified to write "rules of WTB moderation," everybody here says they love your games, and this is your 20th game, I'd think you are a good mod. I live in North American Eastern Time Zone.

It's just a day before March 5. Hope 8 more people join by tomorrow. Heck, even a few AIs would be fine.

There's not a great chance of this starting by tomorrow... But I'll hang in there till jarmihi decides to cancel or whatever.

@shrutibax- Yeah! I would've guessed by your username... LOL. Good to meet you. If there's anything you want to know, you could like PM the Mod or one of the active players, as long as it isn't specifically related to this game. In my first game of WWG, the Mod let me do that and it really helped. Ask Jarmihi first, though. Have fun!

@Thekid- Ok, maybe I'm being stupid but ... what are AIs?

AI stands for Artificial Intelligence. Someone was able to create robots that act and learn like humans. In fact, they did a test where there was a game with both humans and AIs, but the humans didn't know the AIs were AIs. After the game, the humans were asked to tell who they thought were humans and who they thought were AIs, and more humans were labeled as AIs than actual AIs. That's right, the AIs acted more human than actual humans. I thought that it would be fun to play WTB with AIs.

Hey, there, all. Jarmihi, i don't think that i played any of your games before, but im looking forward it. Please don't cancel just 'cause its March 5th, everyone here says that you are good at modding games, so im looking forwerd to this, and there aren't really any good public games avalible other than this. Oh, BTW, my time zone is North American Eastern.

@Thekid4 : I heard about that, too. Have you been to cleverbot.com yet? its an amazing AI (if it is an AI). It seriously acts human. I mean, i was talking with it once, and it called me cleverbot, and said that it was human and that I was the AI, so I'm still suspicious of them just making us talk to random people across the world, but apparantly the creators took it to a convention and had a test just like the one you described.

Since we've experienced growth over the last few days, I'll keep the game as long as at least one person joins each day. The reason I set the deadline is so I can provide a high-quality game and not be bogged down by academics. This week is my spring break week so I have the time and energy to run a game.

EDIT: Just did. Wow, it is amazing. Although it doesn't like cheese.

Looks like I'll try to start rounds at the following times, to allow for work/academic schedules:

6:00 P.M. EST
5:00 P.M. CST
4:00 P.M. PST
11:00 P.M. GMT
4:30 A.M. Thursday IST
6:00 A.M. Thursday ICT

(Average time zone approx. +5.42, so starting at 6:00 P.M. in GMT+5, or Eastern Time Zone.)

Does it really? It learns after every person that visits it, so it's konwledge and pereferences is always changing. I just asked it now, and it said that cheese was its favorite food. asked it 2 minutes later, and its allergic to cheese. Its prett awsome, but i think that the people should work on making it more like a real person, with some consistant thoughts.

I'm glad you asked! Here's the Bazaar Post.

NEW! Click here to peruse the player reports. I'll update these at the end of every round.


RULES
Here are the rules for this game:
1. All normal rules apply except when an item is purchased and used.
2. Each round will have a Challenge. See the Challenge Listing below the Bazaar for more information.
3. Every constructive single post = 1 point. Double posts are worth zero unless three hours have passed since your last post. Spam/useless posts will not be tolerated, and will result in a warning and forfeiture of all points the first time and a ModKill the second time.
4. In purchasing an item, you MUST use the purchasing form found in the Bazaar section of this post.
5. You do not have to use an item once you have bought it. When you do use it, make it obvious to the dumb moderator.
6. The Boss has a private bazaar full of items. See that list here. He earns Firing Points (FP) by firing inactive players. FP can only be used at the Boss Bazaar. Similarly, the Boss can't use normal points at the Boss Bazaar. Here's the page explaining how the Boss earns FP.
7. The moderator colors are green, purple, and red. Please do not use them. Green is for comments, purple for official text, and red for important things like urgent announcements and warnings.
8. The use of the word "he" in reference to the Boss does not imply gender and is used simply to have a pronoun.
9. Discussion of log-on times is forbidden.
10. Any player who does not post in a round and fails to provide a legitimate excuse for the absence will be fired.
Good luck, and have fun!

Yep! The Boss was fired due to inactivity. The game will do this once in the beginning. If it happens again, the system ends the game in a fury of incompleteness. If that happens, I won't be starting a new one until May.
