Much like the SPOT, I think the Games section was made basically as a place to put threads that didn't deserve to be in other places. Also like the SPOT, I think that a proper outline stating that abject garbage is not allowed will go a long way, seeing as that seems to have worked rather well. I have barely read the AF threads, but these forums aren't really designed to handle that type of thing; time zones might be an issue for some people, but if they're that into it that could always go and find a forum that is (designed to). There is some evidence that the mentality of the Games section is spilling over into other sections, as well as it being an attraction to a type of user that isn't really wanted here, and this is not acceptable if it's going to continue the way it has been.
Also, is there NO way to ignore threads? There should be.
1.) Would it be possible to implement an "Ignore Thread" function for every thread? It would probably solve most of the problems here. It could be next to the "Follow This Topic" button.
People can ignore threads by not-reading them. I don't like dedicated ignore functions because they don't help to actually fix anything.
Second, I think it may be a good idea to make a forum for rp threads and make the Satellite Lounge a category since it is getting a bit too big to stay with it's current forum/sub-forum setup.
No. That would imply that role playing is encouraged to take place, when the general consensus is to get it off
