General Discussion / The Name Game
« Last post by DJ on February 28, 2018, 10:53:53 AM »
This is a forum game we used to play on my old webzine's forums. Basically, you reply to the last post in the thread with a celebrity whose first name starts with the same letter as the previous person's last name.

So if I post John Dillinger, you can post anyone whose first name begins with D.


  • No mononyms. So no Madonnas, Princes, or Chers. You can use their legal names.
  • If they're known by a name like Pretty Boy Floyd or Machine Gun Kelly, you go with their legal name. So you could reply to a C with Charles Arthur Floyd, but not to a P with Pretty Boy Floyd.
  • They have to have a Wikipedia article. That is the standard by which we determine if they're famous enough or not.
  • I'm not gonna police this with an iron fist, but it is especially cool if you post a picture of them and a link their wiki article so we can learn a bit about them.

Here's some good-to-know things about using the forum.

  • After you've posted 10 times, the verification questions will stop.
  • Avatars may be 120 x 120 pixels. If it is not that size, the forum will resize it up or down. For best fidelity, make sure it's exactly 120x120.
  • Signatures may be either 300 words or 1 image up to 120 x 450 pixels.
  • Spoiler tags look kinda fucky on the mobile version of the forum, but they do work. You just have to click on the text to open them. I plan to make them look more clickable later.
  • Anything behind a spoiler tag will not be loaded up until you open that tag, so putting videos and large images behind them helps keep pageload times low.
  • If the forum is too bright for you, you can switch to the inverted theme, TakeDark, by going to Profile > Account Settings > Look and Layout, and clicking (change) under Current Theme.

Look, starting out, we're gonna be small so I don't think I need to write out a whole Corpus Juris Civilis here. Just use your best judgement and in time, instead of a list of obvious shit, we'll have an esoteric list of weird, specific rules that need to be explained through their originating stories.

However, there is one rule I want you to observe from the get-go:

Please put your YouTube videos and any large images behind a spoiler tag.

Like so!

Content behind spoiler tags doesn't start loading until you open the tag, so you can put twenty videos on the same page and it won't affect load times.
