There are now so many Word Association games threads on here that I think the Forum F1 admins need start a new Section called Word Association Gamse.

So it would be

Press F1
PC World Chat
Word Association Games

By the way I have never looked at one of them.
I'd rather Twitter !

I think this does make sense (yes, I'm interrupting the game)

Although I don't think it should be a WA forum, but a games forum.

It's really annoying when i open the chat forum and have to scroll past all the WA games to see actual content!

I note the entity responsible for this thread,
also started the following thread
http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=109858
which triggered the proliferation in the first place.
I would have thought they would have learned from that experience
but apparently not.....

Creating a secondary (lower-level) chat forum would be pointless.

Hmmmmm. Make your mind up please Digby. In the first paragraph you say "Section called Word Association Gamse." and then further down you say "Word Association Games".

Now if another forum was created using your first suggestion I would suppose that you would then want a Moderator to change the new Forum name so it was spelt correctly. That may lead to a proliferation of new forums with alternative or similar titles.

So be careful what you ask for as you may get same but with unintended consequences.

I think you have made your point with this thread. No, there won't be a new forum made just for 'games'.

The more people complain about the thread, the more get spawned.

I personally think they have gone well past being funny and people are just using them to spam the forum to up their post counts. It is getting embarrassing (for them). It also makes the forum look childish.

I cant believe how supposedly intelligent grown men (?) waste time and bandwith on such mindless drivel.

Jen, how about putting all of them into one thread and then banning any new ones ? that seems a reasonable compromise ?

Sometimes simple things like this can be a great way to 'relax' the mind and just enjoy some childish fun after a stressful day at work/study etc.

I know similar activities help me anyway :p

Currently we have 15,409 members on PressF1 and not many members are active. If people can't just scroll down or don't know how I feel sorry for them.

If darkstar had posted the actual rules in the original post it may not have got to this stage.

If Digby had not moaned about spelling we would not have had the extra threads I believe.

Some people believe that the post count counts. Personally I think that the quality of any particular post counts.

Personally I don't care about my post count because it does not count. Not as if you are rewarded for same.

Or perhaps we can learn a little something called tolerance.

Seems so many people these days forget what that is and are all about ME, MYSELF and I. My rights, my feelings, and what I think should happen.

Chill out, no point wasting time and energy being a hater - no one is going to listen anyway.

Life ticks on, people fuss, moan, play their WA games - no sense in getting in a tiz about it.

No, because:
ChatF1 is useful
Monday Laughs are great and Flash games are also great

Word association games are fun for 5 minutes but then become tiresome. Also, there doesn't need to be 50 of them. I think there should only be one.

There are not 50 of them yet and the forum has only a few complaints on word games.

My point being that if a few members possibly disagree about useless posts in their OPINION does this mean the post should be deleted and or closed?

I have removed all the threads except the original. They were only being used to annoy other users ie trolling.

If anymore spawn, then they will also be removed and the person who started the thread will have me to deal with.

This has gotten ridiculous and out of control. If I feel the original thread is being used to cause trouble, then I will delete that thread too.

I should add that I have banned two members for being abusive over this topic. There is another new member, and I know who you are, whose account has only been created to post in the word threads - your behaviour disappoints me and I expected better from you.
