Glad our new boss actually played unlike his or her predecessor. The boss gave a pretty through answer as to what he or she (I'm just gong to say "he" from now on) would do if on holiday. I don't know if this means the boss has been there, lives there (or near enough to there) and knows what there is to do, or has actually researched the topic.
I know none of that helps us,, but I am just thinking aloud. For now I will place a safety vote on talaisawesome

Oh wow. I completely forgot about this game! Was certain I'd have been fired for not voting but yet another inactive. Bad, but lucky for me I get to still play.

EDIT: my vote goes to HABS. I probably could have been cleared as I was offline for 3 days roughly. Anyway, I think that it would be good to clear someone. So we need to form a majority and I would really like if to be HABS this round.

Jervis the game just started 3 hours ago not 1 day ago. Also what do you mean bad?

I welcome the clear. Though you will be wasting your time as I can assure you, I am not the boss. I have never heard of any of the places the boss suggested visiting and have neither the time nor inclination to look into places to visit in NZ. While I have considered going to Australia on holiday, NZ has never crossed my mind.

Jervis claiming to be cleared due to not being online makes little sense as the game was still in signups three days ago. The mod may have sent and received back and approved the memo all in the course of the last few hours, no way to tell for sure. I have often as a mod, got the memo back within a few hrs of sending it.
I am not changing my vote right now, but will keep an eye on Jervis over the next few rounds.
Immediately claiming innocence and stating a reason it can't be you even before anyone has brought up your name seems odd to me.

I'm going to vote alikat for saying any type of animal in her interests.

Because of the bosses interests, he'll probably give a similar answer if the question was Australia (or any island.. Madagascar.. Iceland..) We're looking for a plant and animal lover.

Immediately claiming innocence and stating a reason it can't be you even before anyone has brought up your name seems odd to me.


Why does this seem odd to you? If its a legit reason and you are clear why not try to help your teamates narrow down choice and help win (though I think its kind of 'cheap' to use login info) I don't see eye to eye with you on a lot of the things you find weird but anyway, voting HABS now to try to get some steam on a majority

voting HABS

Nothing is wrong with it if it IS a legitimate reason. But as pointed out - his lack of logging in in the 3 days prior to the game start has nothing to do with being the boss. If he said "the game started yesterday and I hadn't logged in in 3 days - then yes that would matter. As I stated earlier - coolnine could have sent the memo and got it back within a few hours today. Meaning the boss would have only had to be on today (and could have been absent for many days prior) to have written the memo. When did the game restart?

but anyway, voting HABS now to try to get some steam on a majority
voting HABS


Please do, and I encourage others to do the same. We need to clear somebody, and since know I am not the boss, I welcome the majority.

HABS makes sense about the log in time being useless to say Jervis is not boss. Unless the game started today and then Jervis came back from his 3 day absence, but we can't prove that now. Anyway the point out could be suspicious or just a confused thought.

So far I have Jervis because he is close to new zeland. and Allicat because she loves animals on her profile. At any rate I love zoos and stuff and never thought to check on a zoo in new zeland wondering if it was someone who has to be close.

Voting allicat for now.

Hmm I'll safety for Nicats for now, but if we are going to form a definitive majority then I'm willing to change my vote

Seems the Boss did a lot of research for their very expansive answer - I've ruled out a couple of people based on that

Not sure what to make of Jervis, because its def an answer from someone who knows a bit about New Zealand. I could switch to a majority on him, dont like to use login clears anyway, espcially ones im not sure if are legit

See... The only problem with a majority is if you're wrong, it could land you on the firing list...

yes but without a majority we will never fire the boss - which is after all the point of the game. And the firings are the best way to clear someone.

Im not arguing with the non-majority people anymore....these are the people who turned and impressive Spider orchestraed 1st round blowout into a last minute barnburner because they (the ones who offer limited help) didnt want to be fired

so I guess Ill vote Nicats to aid that majority

I will also join the Nicats vote - bringing the votes for her to 4. We still need one more vote to ensure a majority and to clear her.

Why would you not want to help? Only 2 people can be fired this round Allikat73126 has been inactive in this game and could possibly be a mandatory firing. That means only 1 of us will get fired.

According to her profile, she has been on today, but I know I have forgotten to log out before so perhaps she is just still logged in and wasn't really on the site.
In either case, she will likely be a mandatory.

well in case if allikat doesn't get on and is not a mandatory chances are she is the boss. could have been active and sent the memo before the game started and not come back. or if she is actually on today could be just hiding

sader because there is a limit each round on how many players can be fired (as the number in the game drops so does this number) and in a 10 player game the boss is only allowed to fire 2 players (including mandatory firings). There could be more than 2 if they are mandatory, or if the mod decides to fire someone but the boss is only allowed to fire 2.

The number fired depends on the number of players in the game. If you could fire 5 people in a 10 player game - that would only leave 4 players after the first round. Wouldn't be too hard for the boss to win in that case! lol.

Great that you got 5 votes for someone.
I know you don't like the login clearing Spidey, but I did think the game would have been into round 2 now. Happy to be cleared next round.
Cool, I meant bad as in it was bad you had an inactive boss initially. It's so frustrating to not have any control over that.

Sorry if I confused people with my post. The only person who could have cleared me, didnt. So that's why I was suspicious. Once I logged in, that opportunity was lost and I should have just voted.

As for the NZ discussion. It sounded like the boss looked it up online.
I only know of Auckland Zoo, but had never heard of the other parks. Also, someone interested in the animals would have surely been interested in the penguins and kiwis. I've only been there once to the capital, Wellington to bowl in a tournament, and to Queenstown. I got to try white water rafting which was icy cold, and a little fun. No-where near as dangerous as I expected it to be.
