I am pleased to announce that as of Tuesday, May 22nd, maurice
is now the new administrator of MafiaManiac. His former mod account has been upgraded and he now has all the powers of an administrator.
If you are surprised this announcement came so early...I am too. Maurice's was the only application I received and I was considering leaving it open/and or bugging others to apply. I was ready to go with interview questions, tasks on the forum we used years ago when I decided to retire, and other things to have people do. However, I received support for Maurice's candidacy from multiple people and I believe him a wonderful choice to succeed Nana.
I now leave it to maurice to decide the course of action from here. I will be active here in a mafia game and behind the scenes at least until the end of the month to ensure a smooth transition and to answer any questions. Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this time and please support our new admin.

After hearing from the moderators as I stated in Nana7's Resigning
thread, I have decided to open up applications for Administrator.
Everyone has from the time of this post until Sunday Night at 11:59 PM to send me a PM with their intention to apply for the job. The PM should simply state that you are applying for the job. I don't need a huge statement of intent or resume or anything. That will come later. Anyone who is a member of this site can apply for the job, no matter how experienced or inexperienced.
Early Monday Morning or Monday Afternoon board time, I will send out interview questions to all of those who messaged me. They will have a time frame of the rest of that week to submit the answers to those questions. After reading through the answers to those questions, I will inform the applicants whether or not they will move forward to the next stage of the process.
My goal is to have a new administrator named by the first weekend in June. Thank you for your patience during this process and I hope that members of the site will step up during this time to keep our site active and fresh as best as they can. Please post any questions about the process below or PM me. Good luck to everyone applying.

It is my duty to inform you that Nana7
has resigned as admin of MafiaManiac. It was not an easy decision, but she informed me that she does not have the energy to continue on in absence as she has. I commend Nana7 for her work after I resigned and I hope that she will find the energy soon to play Mafia once again...as fearful as that may be for others
In any case, I am temporarily taking over as Admin and begin a new search for someone to lead the site. I will be checking in with the moderators about their wishes and thoughts about what has happened on the site recently. After that, I will begin accepting applications for the new admin position. I am looking for someone with the time and commitment necessary to help lead this site and revitalize it. After interviews and some quick test runs as I did in the past, I will announce a new Admin for the site.
I will be available for any concerns during this time of transition. Please PM me and I will get to it as soon as I can. Thank you all for understanding and feel free to pose questions about the search and thank Nana for her service below.

Two quick updates
First, a big thank you to mo_d
for cleaning up all of the Brando work. Giving out those awards and making the post is a tough job. I am glad he did it and congrats to everyone who received their awards.
Second, I made some updates to our skins. Last year, I invested $20 in a Go Fund Me for FontAwesome. For those who don't know, they are a company that designs web icons and makes them usable for everyone. Funding them gave me access to their Pro version, which comes with lots of new icons and newer updated versions of their old ones. I have installed these icons on our new skins and also updated them so that they are all cleaner and easier to manage. While I was at it, I also changed the skyline on the main skin to that of Manama, Bahrain. This country has new modern buildings and a skyline that looks nice on our mafia site.
TL&DR: New thinner icons, new city on main skin.
As always, let me know if you notice any bugs and I will get to them as soon as I can.

We are a bit late but we are ready for our 2017 Brandos! This past year will be scrutinized for the biggest and best of Mafia and we will have a choice few who come away with the coveted award...
Because of the slightly delayed start, nominations are open until the 16th of January, while voting will now happen over the 5 days after that, concluding on January 21st at 11:59 PM BT.
Based on the discussion we had in the previous topic
, a few changes were made:
- Most Active has been combined with Most Enthusiastic to form one award[/*]
- Best Post has now turned into Best Poster - this should now be given to the person who consistently has quality posts as a player during Mafia games where they aren't hosting.[/*]
- Best Mafia Play has been renamed Best Mafia Game Move - the only real difference here is to take it away from one specific play to encompass other possible mafia strategies. This is still limited to one person playing in one game[/*]
Feel free to use this thread to pose questions and comments and suggestions about the overall Brandos process and look here for updates on when nominations close and the polls open. The Brandos thread has been moved to the front page and you can view all of the new categories on one page. Please begin the nomination process now and Nana7_Admin Shad_mod plas_mod Aura_mod
, and mo_d
please be ready to update topics. Thank you again
