Also, with this clue, he thought August was the 7th month and if the sassy thought the same thing, he is very likely the sassy. If you don't want to waste an accusation on this one, just don't protect littleboy. If he is indeed the target and also the sassy, its game over as the sassy will have killed himself. This is all just speculation though...
No, Littleboy always posts near the sassy. Look at last game and 2 games ago. Most of his posts were either the same minute or 1 minute after the sassy posted. Sometimes they were sandwiched together within a 3 minute period.
He's dead O.o

Here is your next clue:
In Northern Michigan I claim my realm,
My history was such you could not tell.
For what once was a fixture staple,
I am now capable
Of much more.
Crawl into your cave, you're just a bot.
It's not about why, it's about why not.
I have an idea about the clue. It could refer to the Bear Cave in Michigan (targets bearasauras). People have figured out how it is formed, but it would be impossible to know exactly when and how it was formed (people can only estimate the time that it was formed at), and it fits with the third line since the Bear Cave is important by being the only cave in the Great Lakes Area. In addition, the words cave and fixture are in bold (could mean that they are important) while the Bear Cave is both a fixture and a cave. The main problem with this solution is that the Bear Cave is near Buchanan, a town in Southern Michigan. In addition, I am not certain that bearasauras has ever posted in the assassination games (bearasauras deletes some of his/her posts).

I'd like to point out something in regard to this post by the sassy. Very few people on this site use that style of correcting someone's previous post and typing a single sentence of "fixed" afterward. The only people who have used that style are mingtian, Littleboy, Kokonilly, TheGenius, winneratlife, and RandomPerson. Of those people, the only ones whose correction styles are exactly the same (bolding, capitalization, accompanying sentence) are Kokonilly, TheGenius, and winneratlife.

Thus:
The primary suspects are Kokonilly, TheGenius, and winneratlife.
The secondary suspects are mingtian, Littleboy, and RandomPerson.

I think it would be prudent for, right now, one of you to accuse Kokonilly, one of you to accuse TheGenius, and one of you to accuse winneratlife. If that happens, I believe it is highly probable that the game will be over immediately. I apologize in advance if my suspicions are misguided.

It is best to accuse after the first identity clue has been posted since that can be used to prove or disprove somebody's suspicions. Besides, anybody could have made the correction in that style. In other words, there is nothing to confirm your suspicion.

In general, identity clues come at unreliable intervals and are vague at best, so waiting for a clear one could cause the game to drag on forever. And yes, there's nothing to confirm my suspicion, that's why it's just a suspicion. But often in these Assassinator games, acting on suspicions is the only way to make progress.

Identity clues are generally unsolvable....you don't want to do what I did for my second game and make it really easy to solve. The only time that I could see a sassy give a reasonably easy one would be if the officers were down to maybe 1-2 accusations (which generally, as you get later into the game, the ID clues should get easier).

99% of the time my identity clues build on one another. There's a billion and one ways to make identity clues, the most we can do is come up with more suspicions, but the ONLY way to be 100% sure is to accuse. Heck, one time paradox's identity clues was "hangfromthefloor", and everyone jumped and accused hangy, and we were all wrong.

Isn't Littleboy dead? (So, technically, he can't be the sassy, right?)

How the heck have I ended on suspect lists for three games in a row? I haven't even been an officer. Anyways, the only time I "fix" things is when someone else "fixes" my post. Also, your list does not appear to contain people who use "fix'd".
