Ok I think this might be a pretty cool idea.How about Once an alibi checks our as fake or real it gets put by the persons name so we don't have to write it down or go and look again after we bring all thw suspects out. Or you could make it so once you determine if someone is a suspect or not it goes into two different lists a fake alibi list or real alibi list. or even a third list if you can't determine weather that person is real or fake because they clam up on you. Or how about if you don't like any of thos two ideas the link to the fake persons name changes color if they are found out to be fake.

Hi Goss good point on the addition of the right and left handed stuff to this idea.

I hate to be the killjoy here, but I like it the way it is. We have to keep notes through our investigations. If the site keeps notes for you it just makes solving cases easier!

I agree with ctown. The more you automate, the less skill there is.

Maybe we could have a free text zone near each suspect name? Or a notepad? Like for storing cases in the agency. To be able to take notes directly on the case (for example when changing computer, playing from work). I've got little pieces of paper of over the place ;-)

Taking notes is NOT skill. It's just....taking notes! Automating notes is NOT making any cases easier, just more conveinent.

I think taking notes is a skill (even though it isn't a complicated one). If you don't take your notes accurately (like a true detective would need to do), you use the wrong info to analyze the case. automating notes seem to take away some rom the roleplaying aspect of the game.

True, but don't you think that it doesn't require a whole TON of skill. Just a little bit of organization. So I guess it requires a little bit of skill. I do keep notes, but it would be easier that way.

I agree, it's not much skill, but then no element of solving a case has much skill in itself. Where do you draw the line in getting the detective to do the work and having the computer do all the work?

I guess there isn't a line. We wouldn't ben to make it too easy. We want it to require skill. Maybe automating notes isn't such an amazing idea. How about a page on the side that acts like a notepad? Wecouldtype and write whatever we wanted in it. That would make notes still there, but they wouldn't be automated.
