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.

Rules:

  • 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!
[close]

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.
