Please, Please, Please.

No word association game!

Let it die out elsewhere but lets not ruin what could be a very informative and helpful forum for anyone who has an interest in living a rural life with silly mindless post count increasing wordgames.

I know for a fact it is responsible for people joining and never posting.

So what do you say? No word games??
Leonie

I'd be happy to not have the word association game too
Gary

Thank you Sophia.

Thanks - we will do something about it.
Brownbear

How about if we have answers and questions but not the other one? That seems a fair compromise.
Gary

Its ok as long as the thread length is cropped regular, after all its a game not a legitimate topic. A new member or visitor would be put off by the fact that the site members favour a game over the core subjects on the site. Imagine a game being 2000 posts infront of say the feather section or hunting section? What would you as a visitor honestly think?

Sorry kaz going off on one there!

I agree with snap cap.

Thanks for the feed back. We have now added an extra section to the site. We will try to stay away from word association game but any posts like question and answer or any links to internet games like Copter can now be posted in the Silly Games section, this way these posts will not detract from the tone of the forum.

Nice one!

Thanks Doodle ... I like playing the words games, but I do agree with Snapcap that they do become tedious!

Thanks for finding the solution to keep all parties happy.

Whilst I completely agree with this post, I'm concerned about the spatt of threads which do the same, by making people come in just to add a sentence to a line of old drivel.

Is that really what this site is all about? Is site traffic and post count that crucial? :sad11:

I would like to think that there is no pressure to increase site traffic or post counts on Over the Gate. We deliberately do not offer a ranking system for post counts and feel that we value the members on here whether they are infrequent or prolific posters.
