Big hosting mafia in 20 years

Hey all! In recent years, Minr Mafia has faced several problems. First, the queue system has caused a ton of stagnation, and it has often been confusing as to who gets to host next when the next person up is inactive. Since the start of 2019, there have only been 3 games ran (4 if you include Gang Wars). Second, there is currently an absurdly long queue. Third, the community is at one of its highest engagement points ever, and I would say that because of Discord community engagement is much higher than when Minr Mafia started (I can't necessarily quantify this but 30 player rounds didn't used to happen lol) Finally, people really seem to want to play Mafia!

To fix these concerns, we are implementing the following system for future hosting of Mafia:

1. The current queue will stay as it is.
2. The person at the top of the queue is allowed to start their Mafia game whenever they choose to, but please leave at least a month of downtime between the end of the previous game and the start of your game (and it would generally be a good idea to gauge the community's interest in playing another Mafia game if you intend to start your game early).
3. Otherwise, if it has been 3 months since the last Mafia game, we will send out a call for a new Mafia Host.
4. The person who gets to host the next Mafia round is the person who replies to the call first, BUT people higher up in the queue take priority.
5. The host deciding period will last 1 week OR until the person at the top of the queue claims the spot.
6. The host must start their game no more than 1 month after they have been decided on as the host, which is to say that they should have the game officially started by the 1 month mark, not just announced. This is to ensure that there is ample time between games.
7. After someone has hosted a game, they are removed from the queue and may re-enter it.
8. You are only allowed to be in one position in the queue.

I.E. A queue of 3 people:
1. Bob
2. Susan
3. Milton
We send out the Mafia hosting call, and Milton is the first to respond. A few days later, Bob sees the call and decides he wants to host Mafia. Bob then replies to the call, and the round of Mafia runs with Bob as the host.

This should solve any uncertainty that has came with Mafia hosting in the past, and will also respect people who have signed up in the queue but have gone inactive.

We may end up tuning the specifics of this in the future (I.E. turning down how often it happens based on community involvement/interest) but this is what we're going to use into the future. I hope that this will prove helpful for future hosts and participants!

Please sign up to the queue in this thread. I will make a separate thread where hosting calls will be sent out.
To use the hosting calls thread properly, please reply to the hosting calls thread when there is a call for a new host if you're interested in hosting, even if you're low in the queue. If no one else above you replies to the call, you get to host it!

Not here, this is just for hosting. You will be able to sign up when an actual round has started (take a look at the other Mafia threads to see how that goes)
