New sub-section in The Lounge.

Recommended Posts

As you know there are alot of forum games in general chat and some people are unhappy with this, so my suggestion is to have a "forum games" subsection in the lounge and move all the current forum games to that section.

Pretty good idea. But I don't how the forumgames are problems, just lock them if there is too many, but I don't think three active forumgames are "too many".

 

EDIT: Hameer should be the forum-mod for that section icon14.gif

I don't agree with these forum games at all, and I don't think staff will either. What's the point of these games actually? Last time I checked one, it was that War game where everyone got confused and it ended up in a big mess. All these forum games are causing is spam and post count increase. I don't think such games are needed, nor such a section.

I personally don't take huge part in forum games, but it would separate them from actual discussions in general chat and make everyone happy, On an old forum I used to be part of there were some pretty cool forum games like where you'd say one word then the next poster would say another word and it'd go like that plus I guess people would come up with other cool forum games. But it's just a suggestion because of these people getting pissed with the forum games in genchat

We don't need a whole new section just for these games. We have general chat for a reason, it's pretty much supposed to be an anything goes area. People like to complain about them because they think they do not offer discussion and are just there to spam and increase their post count, yet I notice the first few posts in the most recent one are 'stop with these topics' 'oh not another one' well this is spam as well you know and isn't any better than a one word answer to a forum game. They often end up locked, so a dedicated section just wouldn't work.

So have it so it doesn't add to post count (if that's possible, I've heard it suggested for lots of suggested sub-forums).

 

Many forums have forum game sections to do just what the OP suggested (the Kongregate forums, the Minecraft forums, the xkcd forums, the Android forums, the Rooster Teeth forums, etc.). And the games are a way to have fun that users of the forum can create. happy.gif

 

Of course, like I suggested in one of the threads you guys could just do them at another forum.

I apologise for the game thread I made yesterday. I didn't knew they weren't allowed as I was not very active to the forums for the past few days and that many topics similar to my thread were locked. Again, sorry. This won't happen again. Thread has been locked as I requested it so no problem smile.gificon14.gif Edited by Hameer

Forum Games only get out of hand because people in derail the thread by getting pissy about the presence of the forum game if forum games had their own section this wouldn't happen.

it still would

people are pissy by nature

 

regardless I approve of this idea, that topic hameer made about the true or false next poster thing, I liked the idea of that, and the one where you say if you know the person above you, I like that too. smile.gif
