Hey everyone,

As you can clearly see, we've set up a new Forum Games area. :fireman:

This section of the community is intended to be a dumping ground for any sort of ongoing threads that serve no real purpose other than posting and killing time.

Initially, we tried to squash these threads altogether. But they have proven to be far too popular to completely remove.

That being said, there are two main conditions regarding this new forum:

1. Posts in this forum do not contribute to your overall post count.
The reason: In return for giving you guys a completely dedicated forum, we're nuking your ability to artificially inflate your post counts through spam.

2. All Off-Topic forum games are allowed in this forum only.
The subject matter of your games is fairly open. Just keep it clean (no racism, hate speech, explicit imagery, etc... the standard stuff) and keep it legal.

Cheers,

Andy :juggle:

I like the description. "If you can't beat em, stuff em in a corner!" :D

And thanks. It's good that these games don't get your post count up. It gets rid of people who aren't actually playing seriously.

Not all of the games.  Remember, even though this is a free, non posting, game section, things still have to stay clean.  If every single person is just posting a random game, it will become a nuscence to deal with or even use the games forum.

Times change. As you may have noticed in my OP, we were completely against the idea of forum games at first - but we can't crush the opinion of the masses.

I suggested months earlier but got ignored so I shall ask it here...

I was thinking of doing a Build Up Your Gang spinoff called Build Up Your Posse. Basically, players join a posse that is available and begin writing stories for them. The staff will then rate the stories and cash would be presented as reward based on how well you have wrote the story.

For those not familiar to BUYG, here are the links
