    We currently have nearly 5 pages of forum games.

    And nothing against dmt but he just created another thread. This one however (name a weapon i think it is called) already has 3 no votes. It looks like he voted yes to keep it.

    I have just closed all the rest of my threads I have in the section. They have become nothing but spam really.

    No system is going to be perfect:). I already know that you want to slash most of the forum games, Ichigo lol.

    If needed, we can make adjustments such as giving more weight to NO votes or possibly requiring identity in polls.

    One of the biggest problems with cleaning up the forum games is that most of the opinions come from members who no longer play forum games:). If you want to really help this section, make and stick to games that make the older games obsolete. We are trying to do this somewhat with the game-related games.

    YES SLASH AND BURN

    Even though I might be seen as a hypocrite for first going to forum games, many ogres do at first. That is how i got my first couple thousand posts before I started to actually care what the site looked like, what it did, how it functioned and participating in the community. Trying to make it a little better :)

    But at the time I was doing F games we only had 1-2 pages of threads. Now...well look they don't even use them all and spam properly (i'm kidding in this sense. there are just a lot of pages).

    I just feel there needs to be a limit to how many threads are in this section :jester:



    but yes yes, this was just utilizing a forum system we already had equipped with VB. which is the poll system.


    Now that the poll system seems to be taking a 'fall' (in my opinion and a few others) I think it might be good time to change how we keep one 'game' from another. Possibly...a full on review system. EXCEPT....we are going to go back to our roots and use Artistotle's methods.

    I propose a system where each review must be based on Logos - Logic and Ethos - Ethics. No Pathos - Emotion because saying 'I like X forum game because it is nice' will not do. Much like the responses you see in some forum games...which is why I shut down the 'games' I made.

    I think only ogreman do this? to force change the poll anyway. make it 'show all' option instead of being discrete.

    IMO forum games are not as abused as they used to be. I only see 1 to 2 pages of active games.
