ive noticed the lotto, and contests for points, but you have no uses for the points other then the lotto from what i see

maybe you can get games or something in here

example:
http://www.aimforums.com

they have games that it takes points to play, and you can win points through the games aswell

I have now added the games I mentioned in the last post. To play goto the main page and click on Online Activities. We will try them out for awhile and see if people like them and it has a positive effect with the members of the board. Feedback would be great so you can let me know if you think the games should stay or go.

Correct, its costs to play. But if you earn enough points in the game you will earn participation back.

Yeah you get 100 participation points if you achieve the high score. You also get points depending on the game. Line in Tetris for every 500 points you get, you earn 1 participation point.

most give you 1 point per X points in the game, like tetris is one for every 500, and you also get 100 points for a new highscore!

If you have been playing the games than odds are that you got the points from winning them. I was confused as hell when I saw I was at like 800.

Yeah, I agree with you on that. One of my friends forums we have things on the forum you can buy with the points like your Name and Title colors and even like shadows or glows on them. Basicly, you have to buy the ability to have your signature and even buy a NEW title! It is actually a REALLY good idea for a forum due to it kind of encourages people to post more to get all the little upgrades.

We don't want to make this forum toooooo gimicky, I think the games were a great idea, but I implemented the shop on the Rubicund *back when it was a boredom buster...and not dead ;)* and it had a gimicky feel to it, what we have now is good until we need people to post (Which we dont, we just need repeat visitors, and something that disables their signature forcing them to post may turn them away.)

Also, Heart, I was wondering what your secret was to eliminating ALL of the computers blocks in hexxagon, I have never seen it done, not even back when it used to be shareware.

very nice! I wish it stayed a bit more true to the original (or atleast the intellevision version). That had several levels with logs that didn't sink on you! (but eventually alligators which could eat you if you landed in their open mouth!)

bastards keep taking my high scores. Oh well, I usually only played most of the games only 1 or 2 times and it took ya'll like 8 times to beat it.

Frogger level 1 may piss you off but just imagine level 2. Also, I am just good at strategy on checkers, chess, ect. I have never played Hexxagon till now but it is my favorite so far. I can't give you my secret. If I did that than I would might lose my #1 spot or I just won't be the only one with 58. :D

YAY!!! 100th POST!! WHERE's MY COOKIE?

Unfortunately there is no level 2 on Frogger. I just beat it last night and it says if there was a level 2 I would be going to it, but the author of the program didn't make anymore levels so the game ended. That sucks. Congrats on the 100th post by the way :) Anyway we are all getting off topic.

I think you missed my point.

The computer isn't dumb enough to evac its corner space, thus making it impossible to get rid of all 3 computer pieces.

I have made a killing off these games. :D

ALSO, still no real point of having the points. I mean sure it's cool if you play games and all, but I mean really what is the point of having 3k points? I still think we should have account upgrades, like change our title or the color of our name and title. One thing I have always wanted was to be able to change your default color when you post.

Oh yes I just wanted to let you know, that you stated you played the games one or two times, if you take a look at the highscores, it seems that all's that you are doing IS playing the games.

I think I points on the board are too inflated, just like money. I should make it harder to get points and increase the costs to play a game, that way they are actually worth something, because without points you cannot play games for one. What do you guys think?

I don't play the games (although, I've always liked Tetris)...but here it is for what it's worth.

It's fun sure...but what do any of those games have to do with a webmaster site except, perhaps, generate traffic. And my first question would be...how does the bandwidth allocation hold up to it? ... OK if the Host gives you unlimited...or that's your service plan.

I'm the one that suggested the chat option and after reading Unflux's thoughts, I completely understood how it detracts from the "permanent" posts that really help people.

So how are games and points and lotto or chat for that matter, helping web designers? I could justify them on my sports board...'cause that's what it's sorta all about...but I keep wondering what's the point at a tech forum?

OK --Sure--it's fun -- all of it -- but is it the point of this place?

Maybe I'm just too old?

Actually I think the games help with webmasters block! But really they have nothing to do with webmasterism. The may help the forum by allowing users to preoccupy themselves whilst waiting for a reply :-P

Seriously, 50 points for 1 game? So, someone has to post 50x to just so he can play 1 game that he will most likey screw up with.

why should you care? you could easily play 50 games. Thats like saying someone has to work for an hour just to play a round of poker. The games shouldn't be the focal point of the forum, but rather posting constructive replies/posts should be.

Well, I know that "I" can easy play almost as much as I wanted but I am talking about the "newer" people who come to this forum. All I am saying is that 50 post is quite alot. They would only get to play 1 game between 50 post and they would probably screw up that one game that they get. All I am saying is it's is a little steep for the new people at the forum. I just think that people might not see it worth it and not play the games. Really the only people that wouldn't mind losing 50 points is "us" that have a crap load to blow off..

The new people should be seeking guidance and helping others, not playing games. But I understand what you are saying :-)

Yeah, I am just looking at it as that we need more frequent posters that are loyal to the forum. We get alot of people that post 1 or 2 times and forget about the forum. Also, we most sertainly don't want people to spam crap loads of post just to get points.

I highly doubt people will be comming here just for the game aspect, there are A LOT better places to play games, therefor they should have no reason to spam (plus if we were to see 50+ spam messages we'd know something was going on)
