In its current state the Playground is either dead or infertile, both of which are bad for improving it away from its reputation as a glorified post farm. The simplest way to fix this is by allowing controlled growth. For example, we don't need generic fantasy RPG number #852934 or Count to 10000 in Germain, but an RP taking place in a hospital on the moon is an interesting idea which definitely has potential.

    yes






    But how about a "special" kind of moderator for this?

    Quite a dumb idea.
    1. One, Dashnet Forums would require more Moderators for this function. Or active moderators in general.
    2. Two, What if a good game is denied when it would have ended up a major success?
    3. Three, What we need to do is ban Joke Games and (most) Counting Games.
    4. Four, The backlash this idea would have by the Forum Game community initially.

    Uh, wasn't the ban lifted a while back?

    This could be about the ban, but I'm thinking of this suggestion. Which would be very bad if implemented.

    1. I agree with you, since Chisako doesn't have the time to moderate every single playground thread.
    2. Simple: If you feel a potentially great forum game was denied, make a poll or something asking if people would play said forum game. If enough people say yes, then Chisako (or any other mod) would probably allow you to post it.
    3. Nothing really to say there.
    4. I fail to see how it would have huge backlash from the forum game "community" when it's just a quality control thing. The forum game ban didn't have that much backlash, so this certainly couldn't have major backlash.

    0. I dislike the number counting feature, so I'll be using this kind of counting.

    no forum games... posting it in off topic only makes it worse... i will re-open (and move) it when i think we can have new forum games.
    the current situation does not allow me to even consider it though
    sorry for you.
    (also just closed, not deleted; so people can already decide it if it is interesting enough to play or if it is a failure)

    Huh, I guess you CAN do that.
    4. Good point. Guess I can't really argue that one.

    That comment wasn't on a forum game, but on my interactive fiction game on Kongregate which he confused with a forum game

    It was before you had explained this, so I thought it would still count.
