What do you think about the swamp now that there aren't the game threads here??

Is this good or bad and why is it that way??

They've now got their own forum. That makes this place a lot less cluttered.

yeah, its less cluttered, but now i gotta go back and forth between forums, which is a pain in the ass. i wish they had it the old way.....

Its better. As others were saying, the non game threads got pushed to the bottom and were much harder to find. It was a good thing

Well, kinda like what you were all saying.....I like it a lot better! We can get some better discussions around here with out (some) spamming. It will be a much better place to come to post in. IMO! :)

I'm looking forward to seeing what this will become!! :D

I think it's quite nice, all the pointless threads has gotten it's own forum. Now the swamp is a place for discussions.

Even though I dont get to be a mod..:D

Well, I think its k00 that theyve got their own forum! Then people wont go here to post games, but it also means that people wont come to the Swamp for the games!! I still think its better this way!

Moving the game threads was a good idea, firstly to reduce lag time, but also not to inspire as much spam in the Swamp. Those game threads were very spam orientated (short, non-sensible posts lol). People who want to play instead of talk can go there:)

Just for the record, I gave the name & description to the new forum :p


I always thought that the swamp is full of spam and avatarness. (meaning 99% of threads where about avatars.......yay...)

But now we have moved the games to the new section, and this place has more room for serious discussion topics.

I don't know why everyone is calling the game threads spam, if they were spam they would be locked. Game threads are just as important as the serious threads to provide a little light relief and have a well needed laugh. I'm still not sure about this move...

i agree with lexx

i need light relief

the game threads were good ... and if u cant find the serious 1's behind them ... well then ... u werent looking

I can understand a harmless game thread or two, but when they had to move 17 or 18 threads to the new forum, I think we all can see the problem.

The problem with game threads is that they rarely die once started, people just keep on posting so we wound up with an unhealthy dose of 'em.

Well, we just wanted more room for good discussion, like political debates, etc.

The games weren't necessarily "spam" but they where mighty close.

I agree there were ALOT of them, but I didn't mind at all. I think most people are intelligent enough in here to decide what threads they want to post on and if you're not here to play games then simply avoid those threads. This lag everyone is talking about doesn't seem to have changed at all. It just doesn't feel like the swamp anymore but there is no point in me moaning about it because what's done is done.

*goes to games forum* :rolleyes:

obi ... the problem with the heavy discussion threads is they end in argument

the swamp will be a battleground without some light relief

Clem

i know this is a double post but i wanna check its gonna be read

i assume most users are keeping 2 windows open to use both games n swamp

doesnt this mean double the connections to the server .... people being about to post nearly twice as much .... hence more server load?

Good point...

I have very mixed feelings about this new Game Forum... Yes, it will take a lot of the clutter out of the Swamp, but it will leave the Swamp only part of what it has come to be... I dunno what to think about it any more :(

*note to self: Post missing oldbies thread before more of them disappear*

to be honest its gettin quite boring. not because the games are gone. the discussions lately seems too broad.


it wasn't as exciting as before when i first got here.



common fellas we gotta come up with good discussions.


and about the new section for games i think it was pointless. it's not really considered a spamming thread. if you think about it, even though we used minimal words in our post for it, it was still related. and aspamming is saying random words don't don't even make sense.

it's certainly alot more neater, but it was easier when it was all in the same place, i'll get use to it though

As was stated earlier, the game threads are not considered spam. If they where, they would have been locked.

Instead, we have just moved them to a new location. No harm done. They aren't deleted or anything.

Them mods were nice, letting you have your ill-deserved fun. Don't go yelling at them.

AH!
someone who understands!


What I want to know is why people have a problem clicking one forum RIGHT BELOW the swamp. It's not like it's in an entire area completely.....

surely that’s simple, pure laziness. I mean I’ve taught my dog to answer the phone for crying out loud! (not really, but I am trying)

If so, then it's a step in the right direction.

It is different then when I first came here yes, I think it still can be a very fun place for ppl to come to. Not all of the discussions have to be serious (duh?). I will still be checking in here....:D



Btw Skitzo-I noticed that as well.....*shrugs*
