Thumbs up

Well, the poll is self-explanatory. To point them out, games like the Picture Game, Continuing Story, Word Association, etc. Personally, I enjoy them and participate when I can.

Exclamation

I participate in Word Association, but I usually just read the posts for the rest of the 'Forum Games'.

Absolutely not.

They are a waste of forum space, and bandwidth.

At first it didn't really bother me, but I've since seen the 5 most recent posts list look something like this:

The Photo Game 2
Describe your navel lint
My daddy can beat up your daddy
(poll) Do you like "The Photo game"?
A Continuing Story 57 [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] ... [97512512561]

Only the third thread might possibly be MUD-related, and even then, only in the context of a MUD in which your IC standing in a (most likely) patriarchal society is determined by the relative physical prowess of the dominant male in your immediate household. Unfortunately, such a wonderfully unique MUD does not (to the best of my knowledge), in fact, exist, and the thread invariably turns out to be some sort of childish flame war. Truth be told, I generally don't bother to read the forums here anymore because of these "Forum Games". But hey, to each his own, I just spend a little more time on Mudconnector .

The only one I don't like is Word Association, and how people keep making new Continuing Story threads. Otherwise, Photo Game rocks.

I actively participate in all the forum games in the Storytelling area. However I believe such games should stay in there, and not pollute the Tavern. Personally I think the Photo Game belongs in Storytelling. However, I find the continuing story extremely entertaining. (BTW, I again apologise for the continued creation of new threads; I got bored waiting for people to reply. I have stopped now. )

As long as they stay in their place, I have nothing against forum games. Indeed, they're one of the main reasons I visit these fora.

I would have a hard time understanding if a site like TMS devoted to the gaming community (muds are games, after all) would ban playing games in their own forum.

Those who don't like them, don't have to read them.

Cool

I don't like them, myself.
I don't like coming to TMS and having all of the most recent forum discussions being complete and total fluff. But that's just me. *shrug*

If there was a way to keep that stuff out of the most recent forum discussions I'd be much less hostile about it.

Perhaps a censor system, whereby instead of simply posting the most recent topics on the home page TMS would post the most popular and interesting posts, would work. Either that or two seperate 'recent post' lists- one for serious stuff and one for serious fluff.

Unhappy

How about a new forum called "Forum Games" where all the games can be played/posted, and no posts made in that forum would show up under the Recent Discussions list on the front page?

Synozeer,
There's a reason so many worship you as a deity.

Oh... it's just me?

If you remember that post count flamewar about the forum games, Syn....

Make it so items posted to that forum also don't raise your post count? That'd fix a major bitch about the forum games as well.

-D

[edit]
-snap- While I'm on that tangent, reduce Xanferious' post count to 0 or something. He's been spamming these boards long enough to merit some action, neh?

I'm simply amazed. Have some people already forgotten the flamewars over them getting flamed because of their constant posting to just increase post count?

Good god. Back to the 'remove post count' reasoning.

Most likely.

This is the internet, this is where people tend to be more forgiving because they are here to have fun, where people do not get involved with petty namecalling at all and where people sometimes just don't care about things, such as those flame wars.

Just get over it, don't be stuck on something in the past.

Ingham/Seth:

One who was banned does not have any right to comment on the subject.

Syn:

Ser, look into removing post counts and such. It'd be a definite _good thing_ for the boards in general. Most of the 'valueable input' people average around 1-1.5 posts a day, while the spammers and trash tend to average what....3.5, 4, even 5 posts a day?

remove my post count i dont care and dulans count should be stripped to i mean he is a spammer/flammer/idoit dulan likes to start these flame wars because he has nothing better to do. the last flame ware last for 2 months god here i finaly thought everything was going smooth on tms and then dulan starts it all up again. so far your the only fool to care about post counts god are you that lame? post counts mean nothing
and no matter how long or how short your topic is , as long as you get your point across then its all good. if someone doesnt like you then skip or dont even read there post its that simple. but stop turning everything intop a flaming war because you have nothing else to do.

*wants to vote in favour of the Forum Games topic which does not show up in Recent Discussion List (but cannot since there's no poll asking the question) and so, instead, posts his intentions in a reply to the current thread and remarks on the length of this particular emote which would most certainly elicit the 'Long line, trimmed' response had he typed it on most muds.*

*wants to propose that the next game on the new board should be a contest where the winner writes the most incredulous one-sentence emote, but then immediately worries that there would be too many who wouldl use it as an opportunity to write meaningless drivel that runs on and on without making any sense or point, and thus decides that perhaps it wouldn't be such a hot idea after all.*
