    To help new members and mods, what about having a poll system for every new forum game? This would allow games more life for new and old members alike:). If there is a good reason for the game to be closed, the poll will decide that since it will be a simple yes or no for each new game. On the other side, a decisive yes on the poll will allow a forum game to live.

    For example, a game with something 0 yes votes and 5 no votes would be closed by a mod.

    Anyway, that is the basic idea. Going to add a poll to this thread to get opinions about it.

    Your opinion on whether or not to add these retroactively to all previously added forum games will also be appreciated.

    It's certainly not a bad idea, gauging interest from the crowd. I don't know how different that would be from how it normally is, as I, as well as I'm sure the rest of us with mod power, only nuke from orbit the ones that are direct/mostly direct copies, leaving the others to sit around. There just haven't really been any "others" lately. Or copies, really.
    In the other thread,
    was posted, and I'm sure there's a chance someone might ask why to that. When I myself, and indeed most mods, delete things, it leaves a deleted message that we can see (though you can't), and looking at darkrat's post, I see nothing with a deleted tag, so I know not what he means. I just know if he did actually post something, I didn't get rid of it (and closed threads are always still visible).

    That said, I'm for it on the sparkly new ideas, it means that there's another method besides just seeing how often a game gets played to judge whether or not there's even a reason for it, but I'll still close the duplicates as soon as I notice them, mostly with a link to the actual game if it hasn't already been provided by the rest of the forum gaming community, because obv a dupe will get no-voted anyway.
    Indeed.

    Shortest version: yes, if everyone else supports, but I'll skip due process for duplicates because they're icky and nobody likes them.


    Just in case there are people who wonder what I mean by duplicate forum game, this is a duplicate of this.

    What happens if somebody submits new games all the time that are voted no?

    Each member would have a three No game limit to prevent them from constantly adding forum games that are copies or that nobody wants to play.

    Hmm 3 per year or for a entire lifetime or...? lol
    --
    I think more or less this system is already in place because when I created my "game" thread no one posted to play it for a day or more. ( except the one post asking how this was a game... ) And so someone deleted it. So now I intend to create another GREAT one! (but you see I am in no hurry because of my suxy 1st one. lol)
    --
    And finally I wonder if feelings would get hurt with the NO votes and such..?

    I think it's fair when we can vote for it.

    Oh yes, definitely. This has my 100% unadulterated vote. There are so many spam threads in this subforum that pose as forum game threads. I try to avoid them as much as I can, but I usually end up posting once or twice on them anyway. There is no such thing as excessive moderation as far as this subforum is concerned.

    When this system is implemented, I'm hoping that counting threads would be the first to go. There's no point to them other than to raise one's post count. In all my years, there is only one counting thread that I have seen to not be pointless, and that is another site's "Poster To Post 10k Gets A Prize" counting thread. And even that usually gets spammed relentlessly once the count nears 10k.

    This isn't actually to get rid of the counting threads, though in our forum games discussion it's come up. (I myself share your viewpoint though) I suppose we could also retroactively force a vote on all of the forum games, if we reeeeeally wanted to.


    Alright, any of you who come visit this thread, I also want your opinion on retroactive voting requirements.

    Hm. Why not ALL of the games?

    May be a better way to clear out some of the old/new games. Just an idea for now I guess.

    I mean there are what..40-60 forum games?

    =p

    I must've misread then. I was under the assumption that all the forum games would be re-evaluated.

    We may actually do that:). Some forum games will not be staying open. After looking everything over, a new game needs to have more content for it to be added.

    Thinking about a poll for each game to decide whether it stays open or not.
