Only hitting the remaining players at this point, I'll drop the dead in at the bottom. I didn't get much.

Haha, you are definitely right about that Caracalla post. Also, I like your approach of just going through one name at a time instead of processing the whole thread. I didn't reach Day 3 on the reread, but included some impressions from Day 4 while they were fresh. I'll probably start over again with the new results in mind, but I don't know if I'll have enough free time to accomplish that before deadline tomorrow.

Put some edits in, removed Day 5 dead and changed some theories around. 13 players, but a lot of them are under-the-radars.

Changed the format a bit. The other one was not looking that clean to me.

I skimmed this time using advanced search to focus on author. It went faster!

These are the candidates:
Aldax
Antipater
BlindSniper83
dferrantino
Omega
Ravebomb
Ryvvn
Smirker
stigmata
That PJ
Wasabi



Augustus
One post per day. Intentionally variable vote highlighting.

Caesar
Though he's at 1 post per day except Day 3, he has long posts with a probe, seems very old school. Claims to always look at consecutive votes suspiciously. Is that an Omega kind of thing to say? Only Day 4 post was one word. It seems like others have gone this way, though we just proved Caligula wasn't doing it out of cult obligation. Votes for Domitian Day 5 because he thinks too much? In hindsight it turns out Domitian's theory linking Shambling members together was correct, but Caesar isn't dead with them.
Is this Omega?

Cicero
Says "Day 2". I agreed with him about Romulus's reasoning. Reacted to the mispost from Ozy with a Simpsons gif but didn't help delete that post, so likely not RaveBomb. Missed a weekend vote.
Dferrantino?

Cincinnatus
One post per day, missed weekend vote. Voted for me, with suspect reasoning. Princess Bride quote.

Commodus
Looks like Blindsniper to me. Lack of end punctuation, one post per day, missed Day 2.

Constantine
I take back what I previously was thinking, that this was a low post count person attempting to push out more posts. He's actually pretty active.
Ryvvn? That PJ? With Domitian leaning Ryvvn, I think this one leans PJ.

Domitian
Puts out some charts, relies on voting analysis that turns out to be correctly tying Shambling members together. Oddly jumps the gun on calling for Romulus before the results of the vig are published.
The posting style says more Ryvvn to me, but the vote analysis with numbers of votes maybe could be That PJ? I'm going to lean Ryvvn here. He could do that analysis if he wanted to be a bit more off his normal method, I've seen him do it in wolf boards before.

Nero
Active, confronts rekard and gets quite vocal for a bit on Day 4. Who would dig through old posts like that?

Pompey
This one sounds like someone trying to pretend to be Blindsniper. Blindsniper is a popular guy. But I think that grammar bomb is too artificial, perhaps. Not the lowest of post counts, but low.

Sulla
Maybe implies he made a mispost at some point, he ++'d necklessone's concern in the player thread. Went after Hadrian for his French. Who were the people most annoyed by the less readable RPs in the past? Claims to be travelling.

Valentinian
Brings up something rekard said about me when voting for me. Has made other points that were reasonably insightful. I think a converted person might withhold those, so I'm going to guess he's unaligned.
Smirker or stigmata maybe?

Well I am just about completely sure that Domitian is That PJ. Writing style seems right - and after working with him for 4 years I hope I can judge. As sure as I get anyways.

Another edit. Put some names in as a best-guess, just to have the names.
