    Default New Dump Games

    Being that it's summer time and we're likely to see an influx of posts and new threads in this area, I'd like some input from those of you who enjoy the games here.

    I'm thinking that some guidelines for new games may be helpful. So far the only requirements that I think are absolutely necessary:

    1. Thread must be different than any others already in existence
    2. Posts for this game need to reach the minimum character limit without the use of "...", smilies, or white text. (i.e. this means no more new counting games)

    Does this sound fair? Are there things you think should be added?




    Please note I am not including a poll for this as I want to actually hear what you have to say.

    Those are good rules Belladonna. I can't think of any rules that should be added that aren't already in existence in the Official Forum Rules.

    I like rule 1 but rule 2. Some game's like the world wonder game only need's number's if you don't want to make a funny message for it so the use of... is used there.

    Quite frankly, if a game only uses numbers, it's not much of a game, is it?

    Wait. But what about the popular World Wonder Game?

    But other than the I completely 100% agree. These new "game" threads are uber annoying.

    *Takes note on post.*
    If the boringness gets out of hand, I can force posters to explain how it was raised or dropped. I can also tell them to quote their previous post, or simply put it is their first post, but that has nothing to do with this topic.

    I suggest that any of these games won't be a popularity contest. You can often predict the winner from too early.

    Forum games are usually something that can continue on indefinitely.

    Forgot one:

    Games should not be based around evading/breaking [forum] rules (As in a foreign language only thread).

    EDIT: I think this one may be something of a given, but, hey, Starbucks clearly labels their coffee cups "HOT," so we should do the same thing with our games.

    Sounds good. These always seemed obvious to me, but I guess it is like the "HOT" label.

    Then they accuse the person below them. And on it goes. Hopefully

    Examples of accusations are: "You're late"
    "I accuse you of pledgerism"
    "I believe that you're scared of centipedes"

    So, I will begin.

    I accuse you of spamming in the Travian Browser game section.

    I definitely agree.

    Could you add something in there regarding actually firing off a couple neurons in their brains before hitting the "submit" button? Maybe to keep people from creating games whose purpose is only to boost post count.

    It means you made a bad RPG thread, I suppose.
    I used to play Travian, then I didn't, then I did, then I only posted on the forums, then I played, then I didn't for about a year... but here I am again. Thanks, Travian. You always find a way to drag me back.

    You'll notice this is posted in The Dump and not in the RPG section.

    As for your thread ... it was trash and thus closed.
