Feel free to add to this, and feel free to ask about terms you see but don't understand.

I'll start with a few that I've seen so far in the current game.

Meta, meta-game, meta-gaming

Meta or meta-game refers to players' game history - how they play when they are town, scum, special, etc. Putting a vote on someone for "meta reasons" indicates the voter is basing their vote on historical behaviors. This is in contrast to objective tells. meta-gaming or "playing for the meta" means that the player is (or is thought to be) playing a role a certain way for their future reputation. Playing an indie role in an uber-protown manner would be an example of meta-gaming.

objective tells, scum tells

Objective [scum] tells are behaviors that look scummy on the face of it, no matter who the player, and no matter how they behave historically.

Sticky Vote

I think I coined this one. It's used to describe a vote that seems unusually set in stone, either for the situation or in terms of the player's usual town behavior (see meta)

trolley-track

This term was brought to mafia by bilirubin/jasona. The term originated in ice hockey.

They are named this due to the common occurrence of a forward receiving a pass from his defense-man during breakout, and then getting completely demolished by an opposing player, usually because they are still looking back at where the pass had originated. This pass is often referred to as a suicide pass. It can be blamed on either the defense-man for setting up such an obvious pass, or the player receiving the pass for not keeping their head up.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossar...e_hockey_terms

In mafia, the term is used to describe a town player who thinks another player is scum, and is focused to the exclusion of any game info that indicates they are wrong or that someone else is a better target for lynch or night action.
if i played a part in the desecration of this well intentioned thread then please accept my apologiez

It does seem the predestined rigor of many a game.
