Title: Please Don't Make Pointless Activities
Post by: SpiderStaryu on June 10, 2012
I'm not trying to be rude now, the Activities Central has been getting more activity then ever before, and it really puts a smile to my face to see this, because back then, this board was very empty, and to see it alive and moving really shows me how much this place has grown.

However... some activities are just not activities. I'm not calling out exactly who, but some people's games in here are just "Choose a character, then Random.Org it", let me tell you; THAT'S NOT A GAME. Anyone can do that, just Random.Org, and BAM, there's the winner! I don't wanna see anymore games like this please, every game has to have a formula and a purpose, if you are going to create a game, make sure it has somethings the players playing can interact with and participate in. If anymore games in the future are like this that are just Random.Org to see who wins, I will close it.

Yeah no offense to anyone who really wants to run a game, but that's not really a game. Activities Central strives on creativity, remember that.

Can I do a game like this though? 2 characters fight, players bet which character would win, random.org is used to determine which character wins and the players who voted correctly earn points.

That's far too luck based, and is exactly what I said is pointless. So no, I'd prefer you didn't.

How about that instead of closing them, you can move them to Forum games.

I had to move some games to the safe because the Activity Central was getting a tad bit too crowded
If your activity is moved and you want it back, PM meIf your game is moved, it is because one or more of the following reasons applies to that game

1. It's done
2. Inactive
3. Active yet no recent posts
4. Sign Ups that are full
5. You basically didn't give a damn after

I don't want to be rude but you have to update something and some games are never updated
