Adopt Kongregate's two post cooldown rule

DoomlordKravokaDoomlordKravoka Member, Wiener Posts: 3,415 ✭✭✭✭✭
The forum games section of Kongregate (which is actually pretty good) has a rule where you can't post again in a continuous forum game until two other people post after you, this is to curb post farming. I think we can learn from their example and improve our playground with this.

    It only applies to continuous games like Count to 100000000 Before a Poopface Posts or Murderize The Poster Above You.

    I dont care if it affected just the counting games , but the other forum games live off of every post other then the creator of the games posts.

    Very closely read both of my posts again.

    I meant that in order for the thread to survive it needs new posts.

    Yes DLK, don't you know cookie wants to rid literally anything that could get in the way of postfarming so he can post in the playground to near spam levels.

    That would kill my threads. Do you even think people care about those?

    I'm torn between one of these two responses:
    > "games"
    > Oh, so that would be good then.

    This would kill the forum , he is basically asking to you want this forum to be dead , except for like a single weekly quality discussion and spam filled activity?

    Well, that would certainly affect my drawing thread... ... ...
    But yeah, there has to be a way to regulate posts in the Playground...
  • CalamityCalamity Member, Friendly Posts: 15,093 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I think it only counts toward the playground. Not art threads or AMAs.

  • TheKniferTheKnifer Member Posts: 2,361 ✭✭✭✭✭
    No it wouldn't it would make it less spammy and no one would have to block playground because it's clogging up recent discussions.

    This forum was not created as a playground for the playground. The playground didn't even exist until a year after it was created.

    Yeah sorry , you dont post as much as us , nor really in the same threads . But still I will remember to refer to you next time.

    I don't like this, we don't have enough people to make this work.

  • CalamityCalamity Member, Friendly Posts: 15,093 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Make what work.

    Okay, let me speak a little bit about this.

    The playground is our little home, we love to repopulate it and evolve their games, even though a lot of people are hating on them, it's what keeps the forums alive. Instead of being thanked for the gift we brought the forums, we are being hated by people who wouldn't accept the change, wouldn't accept that every great thing needs sacrifices...

    Basically what I want to say is... Piece of shit post, needs 2 be close.
