    @Blue Frackle.
    It's not a matter that we didn't want to simply move the thread to the proper forum section, it's the matter of bypassing the protocol set-up for these sorts of things that got the thread deleted. Protocol was set-up for a reason.

    @FroggyFool.
    Not sure about the current rules. Having a one-word thread seems like a major excuse for basic post count padding, which is exactly why the protocol was established in the first place. Maybe change it to one sentence per post? Dunno.
    Also, you need to have a monitor to make sure the thread, if approved, stays on course if/when ziffles occur.

    Eh, I see what you mean. I'll think about changing it.

    I understand.

    So I assume it will only be a matter of time before the new 100,000 replies thread is deleted?

    Only if people can't behave themselves, generating massive reportage issues. :grouchy:

    The vs. thread.

    The rules are simple you post two things that would go against each other. Then the next person who answers posts another and so forth.

    If I'm not misstaken we had a thread similar to this many years ago. I'm also sorry I didn't do this when I made the thread. I didn't condsier it to be a game.

    Yes, I do think we had a Versus-type thread years ago. If such a new version were to be approved, it'd need to have at least two to three trusted people as monitors to make sure the whole thing doesn't get derailed with ziffled replies.

    For example:
    Dwayne: Pepsi vs Coca-Cola.
    FroggyFool: Pepsi, Cake or Ice Cream.
    Thunder: Ice Cream, Mario or Luigi.
    Mikaela: Sonic or Tails.
    Dwayne: Sonic, Coffee or Tea.

    The reason there should be at least two or three monitors is not only to avoid derailment like the above, but also because one single person can't be expected to be online here all twenty-four hours a day every day all days of the year that the thread in question were to be up and running.

    Dwayne, if you can get a couple others besides yourself as the Game Host, I'd consider giving the Versus thread another chance.

    Maybe I can be one of the hosts?

    Game Host: the person who suggested and will be in control of the game after a staff member posts the thread.
    If you want to be a monitor, I suggest you talk to Dwayne instead.

    Sorry. Used the wrong word choice.

    Suggestion:

    There's a very popular game called Three Word Story, where you post three words to create a story instead of one.

    However, some friends of mine took the idea and created a Three Word Story Revolution, which, instead of being three words, has no actual limit on what you can post. Sentences, paragraphs - whatever.

    Perhaps this is something to consider?

    I'm just at least glad to see there were no issues with the 100,000 thread from the staff. But yeah, the new one is better as long as everyone knows how to just have fun and goof around. :grr:

    Why be salty when you can be peppery instead? :oops:

    As for the storytelling game, if it can get some rules in place I'd listen to the pitch. Can't guarantee anything though. :skeptical:
