    Frequently Asked Questions

    How do socks leave hints?

    Socks that are hiding are to leave hints of their true identity.

    Hints can come from anything that is available to the public about the four players. This can be from:
    - Their BIO
    - Their Signature
    - Their Previous Posts (from the past 7 posts only)

    Here's an Example: Say I have a sock named Darth Howser MD. I may post in the pillow-thread saying:

    "Oh I'm hit with a pillow! I fall into the Abyss!"

    There's a hint ;) , as my signature mentions an Abyss.

    How does the public match the hints the socks leave to the real user?

    The true identities of the four players will be revealed for each game. To catch their
    socks...the public needs to "study their files". They can
    - framiliarize themselves with their bios
    - watch there movements (their posts)
    - Study their signature

    This is what true bounty hunters would do.

    Okay! I have correctly figured out the true identity of a sock. The Game Moderator has confirmed this. How do I catch the sock?

    This is mentioned above but I thought I would describe this in more detail.

    Socks need to be caught not just exposed.

    An analogy from the EU: So what if hunters
    discover that Vykk Draygo is simply an alias of Han Solo. While an alias in a valuable piece of info..the Hutts want a person not a name.

    strategies for hunters
    -- Once you have exposed a sock..keep its true identity to yourself..or else you some other hunter might step in and catch the sock after
    you have done all the detective work. If a sock is exposed to the public and is not yet caught..its fair game. Anyone can then catch this sock.

    -- You might want to add the sock to your WUL. Then you should watch the socks movements. If you

    Ok, may I start suspecting? ?[face_plain]

    I hope I haven't missunderstood any rules... if so, I will be very sorry about that! :)


    I suspected that the sock of Darth-Floyd is Sigma_six.

    Right?

    **** Congrats Skiara *******

    That was fast!!!

    Yes, you get to be added to his WUL

    Also, you get to be the hunted in the next round..you get to create a sock

    Also, I will create a Congrats thread for you in your honor! People will come and give you riches, food, and honor!!

    Do you feel Grand, Skiara?

    **************************

    By the way, since Darth-Floyd's run was so short, I say way do the idea I had about not only exposing the sock, but also catching him.

    Skiara, you are a winner, that doesn't change.

    But now maybe he should be caught.

    How you say? By posting immidiately after
    Sigma-Six in a post.

    Stay on topic of thread post, but mention the word "GOTCHA" in the post to signify that
    you are playing this game.

    I duuno what the rewards would be though ?[face_plain]

    What does everybody think????

    Thanks, Eon-Wan-Mome_NT! [face_blush]


    Is it me to catch him? Or can everybody catch him? ?[face_plain]




    Maybe we could change the game a little bit.
    Maybe it was discussed before, but...

    The run will be last a bit longer, if we haven't to post the supections in this thread.
    Instead of that we could send you, Eon-Wan-Mome_NT, a pm of our suspections or to the perhaps-being-sock. And after we send the PM we could try to catch him.
    So there will be maybe more hunters and there are more hunters who will have the chance to catch him. :)

    If it isn't a sock and a real username, it is maybe a good action involve our newbies. ;) :)

    I believe once you discover that person's sock, then you are requested to place them in your Sock's WUL. :D

    HAHAHA! I did it!

    Well, I always knew I had some of Spike Spiegel in me.

    (Hes a bounty hunter too you know)


    Both you and Princess_Padme had Spoiler Free for Episode 3!! in your sigs.

    So, do I make a sock now? or what do I do now?

    Another sock is exposed!!!!!!!

    Here I was worried that this game would go on to long.

    Well Lord-Vader, you get to be on Princess-Padme's WUL

    You get the option of being a sock in the nest game.

    And a thread will be posted in your honor!

    ********************************************

    Those are some good ideas Skiara!

    But since we started the game this way we should finish it this way.

    But I like the idea of "If you know who the sock is to keep it secret" Send me the PM then I will tell you right or wrong. If right, then you have to try to post right behind the sock in a thread with the word
    "GOTCHA"!!

    Is that basically what you meant??

    For now, for this game, I guess we continue with the "expose sock to everyone" first then
    the one who exposed the sock should try to catch the sock. That way all socks play by the same rules for this game

    So yes, Skiara.. only you should try to catch
    Sigma-Six.

    And Lord-Vader..if you want to and if Princess-Padme wants to.. you should try to catch Princess-Padme.

    I can't make this mandatory since it wasn't outlined in the rules..so I will leave it up to each team of "Catcher-Prisoner" to decide if they want to continue with the "Catch asock in a post" idea.

    But both you Skiara and Sigma-Six seem to be for it so knock yourselves out!

    But regardless.. the winners are still the same :)

    And a thread will be posted in your honor!


    What? I get my own thread because I caught him? oooh!


    Also, can I expose someone else that I think I know? Or since I've already won, it wouldn't be fair?
