Day 3: C is for Change

So, nothing really happened, because everyone was far too lax and zoned out to come to a concensus. Most everyone decided it was all RaveBomb's fault, and to be fair, it probably was. No one was really expecting an honest-to-goodness tank to drive straight into the middle of town (over several house...

Re: Day 2: B is for Beatniks

I think instead of a direct skip mechanic, it should be that the voting opens to the next potential voter as well, and only if that next person votes first is the original voter skipped; like, Simon should be able to vote now since he checked in before Meta4... although, he probably should have jus...

Re: Day 2: B is for Beatniks

This is a bit more cumbersome way of voting. It's like more attention to vote tracking is needed.
