I agree that the General Discussion board should be reopen.
It was closed because of the forum game threads. Why not just lock or even erase (but which? Terry's choice) them instead of locking the whole board? Currently, there are General Discussion threads in the VVVVVV board. I posted one of the threads because it deserved to be posted (regardless of how stupid the idea I suggested there was), and that's probably why other posted. Also, recently one person created a forum game thread in the VVVVVV board and it was erased hours later. Why not do the same in the GD board?
Also, why not create a sticky forum rules thread in that board implying not only that you can't create forum games but also Pokemon battles. Am I exaggerating here?

Terry's sorted to-do list if he accepts re-opening GD:
  • Lock/erase the forum game threads. I don't know of this can be done before #2. That includes the quoteception thread and many others. Also, isn't the VVVVVV roleplaying thread a forum game?
  • Re-open the General Discussion board.
  • Move all the General Discussion threads into the General Discussion board. This includes the ones with "General Discussion" in the title, this thread, several others and an old thread, "VVVVVV is a game? (Y/N)", that's mostly about what I'm discussing now.
  • Create a sticky thread in the GD board implying that forum games shouldn't be created and maybe other things.

Has anyone sent him a PM yet? I don't know if reply 14 is serious...
How about send him a PM with a link to this topic (and an explanation, otherwise it would look like spam :D)? That way, he would read why we think it should be done!

I also have an idea that we should just have a Forum Games board, and move all of the Forum Games there!  :viridian:

That has been proposed multiple times. However, Terry did not like that idea, and posted this:

So let me get this straight - you guys think the solution to this is to create a special forum just for nonsense?

To hell with that. Go play forum games somewhere else.
