Status is the rank of a player AoPS Mafia community, labeling players according to playing experience and skill. The four statuses are Newbie, SE, IC, and forum mod.

Every new player is automatically deemed a Newbie, and continues to be one until they apply for a higher status. After fulfilling certain qualifications, Newbie can apply for the SE status, and after more qualifications are met, SEs may apply to be ICs. The position of forum moderator is not open for application; they are instilled from time to time at the discretion of the AoPS administrators, according to the needs.

The rank "Newbie" is not to be confused with calling somebody's play "newbie"; the former refers to a status, an experience level, the latter refers to the display of lack of knowledge of how to play mafia (usually because the player is in their first game, or has neglected to learn how to play correctly).

This page lists players' statuses according to the reincarnation of the application system, as instilled in August 2012.

Newbie Edit

Newbies are players who are new to the Mafia forum. In order to join a Newbie game, they must join the Newbie Queue to wait for a game. While playing their first game, they may not play another game simultaneously, but after that, they may play in two at a time if they choose to do so. In order to join a non-Newbie game, Newbies must have completed at least one game. Newbies who have completed at least one game may comod games at the discretion of a game moderator, but they may not moderate games themselves.

Semi-Experienced Edit

SEs are players who have played in 3 or more games and are judged to reasonably understand the rules of mafia.[1][2] They have been approved to this status through an application process by the forum mods, with input from the ICs. SEs may moderate games of their own.

In order to be approved for this position, the main qualification is to have at least three games of experience. Playing skill or quality is not a factor, unless the applicant displays a blatant lack of knowledge of the rules and how to play.

List of SEs Edit

These players have been approved through the new 2012 system. Currently active players (have played in or modded a game in the past year) are marked with an asterisk.

Inexperience Challenged Edit

ICs are players who have played 5 or more games, modded at least one game successfully, and have been judged to have a well-developed style and skill level.[1][2] They have been approved to this status through an application process by the forum mods, with input from the already-ICs.

In order to be approved for this position, applicants usually display a developed skill in playing mafia, as well as all-around knowledge of how mafia works (due to a large amount of experience both playing and modding).
