This is more me asking the opinion of the members since honestly some of the threads have gone from games to practically being spam central which is against the rules.

Should we have some kind of regulations for the game threads, should we remove the ones that have turned into spam fests?

What shall we do?

I dislike that section because sometimes member use it as a means to just get more posts.
So I suggest we get rid of the more spam ones, and keep the more interesting games with more to them. Those to get rid of would include; Ban The Person Above You, and Location Comments

Do Forum Games actually add to your post count? I swear that was a feature that I disabled specifically when I was an admin. o-o;;

They sadly do, there is no way at all to disable that as forum motion doesn't have that function.
There are no codes nothing.

Unfortunately they do. 

I personally don't see the appeal to forum games, because I think of the entire forum as a game itself. I mean, we're here to RP and have fun, right? Doesn't that count as a game?

Anyway, getting rid of some of the forum games wouldn't effect me in the slightest, but I think it's probably for the best. Seeing new members jet up to my post count (Or somewhere close) because they posted in some games rather than RP'd on the forum to get that post count is a little bothersome IMO.

I think my biggest problem with a lot of the games threads, is the fact you often get people competeting to post immediatly after someone else has. For example, the chain reaction thread. It would be difficult, and perhaps a little silly, to impose a posting order, but perhaps a time limitation on some of them could prove useful? Probably not, but still.

I would hate to see the topic closed, as there are a few threads there I enjoy... but I can see the problems with it. I would suggest removing a lot of the spammy ones, but based off certain points of the day, that is a fair selection of them... and doing a full blitz just seems a little too much?

So, I guess in short, I have to agree with Spekkal. Closing the spam-like ones is probably the best bet. In future, it may be an idea to have a set rule of something like 'you must wait at least two posts before responding, if you already posted', etc, for some of them.

Umm, I just post in the games because it's something to do since I'm not in any RPs at the moment. Plus, it's fun!

Well, Open RPs are just that - free to join! You can just pop a post in one without having to really apply or anything!

It's coo'! Any threads in there are free to join! Meanwhile, Closed RPs are for very specific people so aren't up for just anyone!
Hope you enjoy RPing here! <3

But back on track! Forum games!

The issue is, how do you determine which ones do and don't have a right to exist? It's hard to really just go; 'We have decided your particular game is not worthy of being a game. Begone! For your idea of fun is not the fun that I myself find to be agreeable!'
I'd say maybe add an additional rule or something - nothing too much, but make it so you can only post in the same topic there... what, every half hour or so? It'll allow the more rapid games to keep moving, but mean people aren't just sitting waiting to instantly respond every time someone responds to them.
Either that, or set a limitation so you can't directly respond to someone who directly responds to you in there, to stop topics becoming just two people backing and forthing?

Thanks for the input, guys!
