Some changes to the forum

Recommended Posts

We've made the following configuration changes to the forum:

- You may now only change your Display Name once within 60 days and after reaching 750 approved posts. However, donators can still change their Display Name 3 times in 30 days without any minimum post count.

- A new sub-forum was created in the Games forum called "Forum games". Since we've had lots of "forum games" topics cluttering the "Games" forum, this new forum will now serve those types of games exclusively.

- Posts made in the "Forum games" forum won't increase your post count anymore (again to prevent excessive abuse of the current system, even if involuntary, and further promote DC-related discussions instead).

Thank you!

Nice, Maurice! It's understandable ali_053.gif.

how will the gamers feel about this

This is what I want to hear, too ali_069.gif.

Well, I think it's a good idea. Considering how most of us are able to get our post count very high through posting there ali_097.gif (it's been a long time since I stopped :V). I wanted to suggest this long ago...

And the change to the display name is also good. It gets confusing when members change their name, and I won't be able to recognize them till some times later th_053_XD.gif.

Hopefully people won't start to spam important topics just to get their # of posts up.

That's what I'm worried about as well.

Let's just hope that everyone takes this huge change in stride and actually contribute without spamming.

The mods can help pinpoint the spammers and punish accordingly.

I'm glad you're taking this initiative, Maurice.

It's been a long time coming.

Considering they were asking for the Forum Games to get its own section, they should be pleased about that.

And the change to the display name is also good. It gets confusing when members change their name, and I won't be able to recognize them till some times later th_053_XD.gif.

That was the exact reason the rule was put into effect. Members were changing their member names far, far too many times, and unless you were in this group of people, you had no idea who any of them were. I got more than my fair share of complaints from other users about the names changing so much.

Hopefully people won't start to spam important topics just to get their # of posts up.

I'm hoping that our members would know better than to do that. We'll shall see.

This has indeed been a long-time coming.

Its hard to catch up

why do you feel the need to catch up? isn't it more valuable to the forums for everyone to be making meaningful posts?

I like the new rules a lot better. And since post count doesn't matter too much to me, I'm not affected. I think the name rule was good as well, people should think seriously before choosing a name.
