Author Topic: A suggestion for Forum Games  (Read 6108 times)

« on: January 24, 2009, 11:14:22 PM »
There should be a sticky thread in Forum Games where you must first post in before posting a new forum game. The suggestion for a new game would have to get 3 approvals from other members before you could post a new thread for a forum game. It would help regulate unwanted threads in Forum Games, not that we have a big problem with unwanted forum games, but it would help nonetheless.

I appreciate almost all of the topics made in the Forum Games, no matter how stupid/pointless they may be.

Sorry, but I can't say I support this idea. I don't wanna have to get someone else's approval when I want to post a new topic. I trust myself to be mature enough to post a topic that's at least somewhat interesting and worthwhile, even if it's just a silly Forum Games thread.

It's just a suggestion, it's not like we have a problem with bad forum games at all, though I know this would be neccesary on some other forums that I know of.

Imagine using this sticky in "Not at the Dinner Table." Nothing would get approved or posted!

Hm...on second thought, that doesn't sound half bad.

Remember that your first Goomba boldly you walk? When Mario touched that mushroom being brought up more largely remember that you are surprised? Miscalculate your jump that pit remember that it falls?

I have to admit, some of the forum games are a waste of space (no offense). Here are some that I find a waste of time (no offense):

***Warning! FBM being brutally honest!***

Make a band: Why? Who cares if you can string together a few names and form a band that doesn't exist? It's not like that wish will be granted or anything.

MS Paint Story: I have bad feelings about this game...

The random video thread: I have no problems with this one...but if you want to see random videos, just go to YouTube.

Super Smash Brothers: WWE Style!: This seems more like a fanfiction and should be placed in Fan Creations.

Ask a stupid question get a stupid answer: Hm, you decide.

Random Stats: Pointless.

***Warning! FBM being brutally honest!*** (Sorry)

Let me just note that these games are "ok" and can be improved. And it doesn't mean that these members can't improve on future forum games ideas. After all, practice does make perfect. And I know even I will fail at some ideas, but trial and error, y'know? There's a lot more forum games, but I'm leaving it at that.

To add to that suggestion, I think that it should only apply to newer members.

Why put restrictions on the Forum Games?!! The moderators (and about half of the active members) don't seem to care that it even exists anyway! Just leave the [darn] thing as it is. There is absolutely no need to put restrictions or regulations on it.

I agree. Everything should be left alone. Some of the games aren't that bad, and some are starting to grow on me...

Instead of approval for Forum Games, we need a guideline for Fan Creations: no more threads starting with "Gallery of".

If you don't like a thread, don't post in it. Stringing up a bunch of red tape isn't going to improve anybody's perception of Forum Games. As the the "Galleries", fads come and go here. No biggie.

There's no need to put restrictions on the Fan Creation board either. Seriously, a thread titled "Gallery of [insert member name here]" shouldn't be a problem. The title doesn't effect the content of the thread itself.

Unless, of course, we start having a surge of sexual material hit the Fan Creation board (but I think the rules and Admins take care of that).

I find it ironic that you make a useless post about a useless post.

*Sigh*, it's true. My post may have been useless, but I was just expressing my view of some of the forum games here. It was nothing personal towards the members of this website. My sincerest apologies to those I may have offended. And I really do think the forum games should be left alone.
