Ready from what point? Games usually take no more than two weeks to start after sign-ups are posted and all slots are filled, though it really varies on a game-to-game basis.

Do start-ups ever completely fill in under an hour? Thank you for responding, btw.

I can't really see it happening... if it's a very small game, it might take under a day, but it would be unlikely that enough people would be simultaneously online for one to fill up in under an hour. Most times it takes 2-3 days to fill up a medium-sized game, I suppose (though I don't really watch these things closely).

Excellent. I just wanted an idea for the Mafia debate I'm about to do. I'll reference you in it, if you like.

Here's a google search for a lot of recent sign-up threads: https://www.google.com...

You can just compare timestamps to see how long they took to fill up.

The average time they take to fill up is really, really variable. There are some that took over a week, while this one (http://www.debate.org...) took less than a full day. I think, more than anything, it has to do with the number of concurrent games going on at any given time.

I don't need to be referenced, lol - this is publicly available knowledge, and, either way, I'm not really an expert.

I'm not sure what you are asking for, but the answer is: it depends.

As a player:
You sign-up and wait for the sign-ups to fill and then for the mod to assign your role (i.e. send you a PM). The game will not start until sign-ups are filled, and, since there are usually only two games going at any one time (excluding the beginner series), the sign-ups are usually started in advance so when one game ends another can begin.

Sign-ups can take anywhere from 1 day to 3 weeks, and sometimes the sign-up is abandoned due to lack of interest.
It's really no different than signing up for a debate tournament or even issuing a challenge debate to someone. You have to wait until it's full/accepted, and no one can predict how long that will take.

As a mod:
Before a sign-up thread can begin, you need to know how many players you need. This depends on your game set-up, and this can vary drastically between the mod.
For some, they use a pre-existing balanced game set-up, like JK9++
http://wiki.mafiascum.net...
While others, like Buddamoose, will create a themed game with an original story, so there are characters and backstories, and roles need to be matched to characters and the game needs to be balanced for fairness. Obviously, one takes much more time than the other.

Once sign-ups are complete and the game can begin, it is just a matter of sending out the role PMs, so, that takes less than an hour. The role PMs, again, vary in difficulity and time, ranging from:
Zaroette - Doctor -Town
to
Zaroette you are Belle. In the show you are a princess who was captured and imprisoned by Queen Regina, as a form of revenge against Mr. Gold. As the person who turned "The Dark One" good, you are the Beloved Princess. If you are lynched a Day Phase is skipped. If you are Night-Killed, a Night Phase will be skipped. You win with the town. (a themed game based on a TV show)
to
you are Antrel Brown, known in TITAN as Jason. The agencies lawyer, you are simply the best when it comes to legal defense. Though your services are rarely required, when they are, you are able to boast a perfect success rate. Thus each night you will choose one player besides yourself. That player will show as innocent to any affiliation investigation performed on them that night. (a made up storyline)

I have no idea if this answers your question or not.

To get roles made if you sit down and do it right it can be an hour pending on the details. For the sign-ups waiting period it takes about a month or two pending on the interest in the game.

Also, after you sign up to mod a game it takes 2-4 months for it to reach the top of the list.

They used to quite frequently. It really depends on the theme and who is moderating. Well known moderators will get their games filled much more quickly.

I'd tell you but this thread is lame. You are probably looking for more ammunition for your DAMP (discrimination against mafia players) debate. I will not allow myself to be subjected to DAMP. I will not allow a DAMP supporter to step into our backyard, the Games Forum and collect information to fulfill her DAMP agenda. But I also don't want to be insulting so I will take a leaf out of Gandhi's non violent book and provide you a non-violent response.

The length of time it takes to get a mafia game ready is the sum of the time it takes for the mod's turn to come up in the mod list, for the mod to design the mafia game, and for the sign ups to fill. When all these things are done, a mafia game is ready. Now please do not discriminate against us in our own backyard. Down with DAMP!

Aren't debates meant to have you sway your opponent's opinion of a subject? If so I don't think there's any point debating her.
