No, I wouldn't say that, but I'm gonna let this poll stay open for a few days(4 to be exact) and let you vote on a few things concerning our recent branching.

Every vote counts...please post some comments if you feel the impulse.

A bit after the poll ends, this will be moved to feedback.

i have to post this as i am still unable to vote in polls

I completely understand why the games were moved to a different forum and I believe there are advantages, however I also agree that the swamp does not seem the same without them, so please count this as a vote for

Move the game threads back; Create stories forum inside RP

Thank you

I'm going with option number 3, although I still feel that the stories forum should be by itself in the general section. As long as a stories forum is created it shall have my full support.

I voted option 3 for reasons stated in my thread. I'm glad this forum is a democracy and not a dictatorship! ;)

Gotta go with option 4. I think games and stories belong in the swamp.

hmm, i definatly think we need to bring the games back in the swamp, but we have to make sure there arent 20 games or so runnin. im happy with 3or4 so a little control on that i believe would be wise.
and i really think we should create some kind of showcase where u can show off ur SW website, fanart, STORIES,...

LeXX has some good points. However, I think that perhaps some of the "game" threads should be degraded to "spam" threads (the versus threads eg). Not that I have anything personal against them, but I think that the Swamp will get just a little too "swampy" otherwise, if you take my meaning.

i voted number 3, i think the games brought some excitement and it was way less boring then it is now. i still post here obviously, but its not the same, because when i was bored before, i would just post in the games, they were fun and somethin to do:) BRING THEM BACK!!! heh :p

Option #3 of course. I would have to agree with Darth Groovy:I think it would be a good idea to have a stories section. The writing of stories is practicaly the main reason that I frequented the swamp. A lot of guys have written some pretty good stuff (i.e: the academy wars), and I feel that they deserve a special place in order to display their talent.

I agree with Padanime.

I went for option 1. The games are fine in a nother thread. That way all the non-game threads dont get pushed down to the bottom of the page

I agree that the game threads should be moved back. There has been a number of complaints about the Swamp since the new game forum was created. I think it would be beneficial for the majority if the threads were moved back.

The new Stories forum should also be created. Unlike the games forum, this is a serious issue, with lots of people wanting to post stories, who feel it will be too publicised in the Swamp. I think the new forum deserves to be created:)

I voted 3. I think that it is the best thing. I also think that they should include post counts for all threads. No exceptions. It should all be fair.

I think it's annoying to have these big old games just pushing posts down all the time. I mean, one game once in a while is no big deal, but when the first three threads I see are all game threads every time I open up the Swamp... there's a problem

if you read matt's post at the top you will see that the poll is open for 4 days, then whatever action has been decided will no doubt be done

keep teh GD's for each game sepratate, but keep a general help and disscussion for common games (like more pilot like games would havbe their own discussions and help forums, while other 3rd person or first person would have theirs.)

RPG forums should be also keep somewhat seprate based upon those ideas, only for the fact is that some RPG's keep a certain amount of control in it, thus meaning who wants a whole bunch of guys spamming these rpg's and or just plainly turn the rpg's into chaos due to to meny posts for one person to keep up with ^.^

scarface thats not what he meant about game threads

he means the threads in the swamp where u play a game ... it complicated ... visit the game forum for an example

oh and dano ... havent u ever noticed threads are time and date stamped

the date on matts being the 22nd ... the date now being the 24th .... just

now call me crazy but id imagine we'd be waiting for the 26th for matts reaction

:D
