    Suggestions on what to do about Forum Games

    Post by SilentVerse on Fri Oct 22, 2010 9:57 pm

    It has come to my attention that both the Forum Games and the Roleplay sections of the forum have wayyy more attention than the other forums. Of course, this isn't really a problem, but it's gotten to the point where most of the posts are in Forum Games, and the worst are is, most of the traffic there are basically Postcount +1 games. Those games aren't really that fun either, and are more or less just a place to rack up Rupees.

    So, I think we should do this:

    a) i)No postcount +1 games. Games such as the Counting Game, the ABC game, and such are basically just there to boost a person's postcount.
    ii) Alternatively, we could keep these postcount +1 games, but enforce stricter rules on them.
    b) Establish stricter rules on spam. This is really important in my opinion, since at the moment, there's a ton of spam floating around and it really needs to be stopped.
    c) Regarding spam, maybe we could have a place where postcounts or Rupees won't increase, but you can get off topic and spam all your want there? That way, people can still post random stuff if they want.

    Regarding Roleplays, those are fine, since they're broad and can take many different turns, but we need to enforce rules on those too. For example, you shouldn't be able to stray TOO off topic from the Roleplay's original intent, though of course, this varies depending on the Roleplay.


    So yeah, here are my thoughts on how to deal with the increased amount of spam and such, as well as increasing traffic on the other sections of the site.

    Yeah, the chatboxes are also great for just socializing. It might be better to just move all the spam talk into the chatboxes if possible actually...

    Well this is a little risky, but considering you are the host of most roleplays on this site, I think we should make you a mod for forum games section. I don't know if it's possible, but we will definitely have to run by either Con, John, or Yusei.

    tournements are not forum games.there's even a tournement forum there.

    and if ya beat someone in a tourney for 1st,2nd,or 3rd,you get a new badge and BG points.

    but to be sure,i'll look to see if it's a forum game or not

    YES! I was talking about this to John earlier before the site went underway, and he said it would be used to increase rupees. If we find a possible way for no rupees to be increased on that paticular,catergory,forum,topic, whatever! Then this would be a great idea.
