THIS IS THE FOF-FF! Not a ******* elementary school where people have no hair on their asses. I'm sick of all the retards trying to make themselves seem more significant by creating poll topics and forum games, of which they never search for or give any thought, thereby pissing me off and making themselves look even more retarded.

From now on, NO MORE NEW FORUM GAMES. If I see one I will delete it and give you a warning.
From now on, if I see a new repeat of an existing poll, I will ban you.

You have been warned (non-forum like durr).

Excuse me whilst I laugh my ass off at this burn.

On a side-note: This place gets too serious at times (and hey, light-hearted fun never goes wrong -- if left within limits.)

I agree with this post, mmsven's just angry because he wasn't invited to the picnic!

I'm just kidding sven, please don't ban m- [User no longer exists]

No need to get as serious as mmsven always gets, as the majority of it's members are around 11-15 years old...

Maybe there's no need to get too serious but the off-topic section is really over-flooded with one-word or two-word-posts from people who mainly want to boost their posts count. So, no need to get too childish either

Is it possible to have a board where post counts don't rise?

That'd probably be a good way to let forum games stay on the forum...

With an IPB plugin, you can make it so that if you post in a certain area (such as Off-topic) doesn't increase your post count.

But the main problem here is not the post count in itself, who cares about post count except people who try to boost it? The problem is the posts, it exists plenty of online games where one can spend time when he's bored instead of flooding a forum with one-word posts.

And talking about one-word posts, some people here should learn how to use the PM system or instant messaging. Topics are not chatrooms, when you want to discuss with someone in real time, get his IM address. Posting "lol"s and "ok"s is: useless, spamming and makes topics hard to read and search.

Got an idea. Why not just make a forum games forum somewhere else, that's linked from here?
