I can imagine people quiting and some sort of rebellion forming up, and then in the end someone would try to hack the site and stuff.
Actually, I feel that this would cause more of a division than a rebellion. not that the forums aren't divided into separate social groups already. Rather, a more severe, distinguishable division.they will try to get friend in high places to hack our site with their 3 computerBack on the serious side...
Maybe we should get rid of forum-based games altogether. I know it sounds drastic. After all, where else would 14-year-olds spam our forum with nonsense? Can't go without that, now can we?
Sounds lovely and I agree with that. As (somewhat) said before, a new member would not be able to discover the forum games and spam the hell out of it.
I think that without a forum for forum games, people would just make forum games in more important forums, like the rest of the satellite lounge. I don't think that removing the forum-based games thread will eliminate forum games, in fact it would probably create more spam threads in other forums.
How would they create a game when there's no forum-based game forum? It's against the rules to create threads that do not go into their proper subforum, so it kind of creates a little paradox.
Also, I shouldn't really ignore posts on a very important thread like this.
1) Number 5 was voted as a joke, but you still don't seem to find the point. This is a 1-5 scale of opinion of the Forum Games, with 1 being I absolutely hate these forum games and I want them to die in a pit of fire, and 5 being that I love them and I want to have babies with them or something like that.
2) Bans on IRC exist for a reason. Use them.
3) You can easily pause the game by silencing the IRC channel, then take some time to write your content for what just happened on a Word document or a txt file. Afterwards, you can just post one paragraph/line at a time, assuming that it doesn't break the character limit.
