The Arcade is new right? People will post again Nick, never fear. The arcade is just a new toy is all, they will get bored with it soon enough plus.smilie3.gif

I depends from the person... If someone wants to spend hours playing games he will do. If he wants to post he will post. You can't say play or don't play games.
Nevertheless, you can try a restrictional number of 20-30 games per day and see how it would go default.wink.gif

I think that the best is to let the people decide if they want to play or not...
Restrictions are not good for me, i may want one week to play tetris all the time
and the next one to post post post... i understand the trouble Nick with the arcade section but ...

the issue probably has not a white/black solution :

i mean, ban the arcade is tragic but leaving it unrestricted is not good either

the best would be to pose some restrictions

P.S.
for members no restrictions apply, but for for private members,for elite members & for moderators there is a post requirement to play

i believe this is fair : a moderator / prive member / elite member should do more around here than just play

I AGREE WITH CENTRIC...
OH AND SOMETHING ELSE... MODERATORS SHOULD POST 3 POSTS (NOT 5) SO THEY CAN PLAY default.tongue.gif

Nick, you could always activate the points system. You get so many points per post and each game costs so many points to play. I did that on an old forum and only one person complained about it, but he wasn't paying my hosting bills, so bummer for him that he had to post every few days to keep playing.

I went for the 50 games per 3 posts option. Granted the arcade is one of the best (if not the best) feature of the site. But this is a forum, don't forget it and if you want to play only games you can go to sites that offer that (a bit more hassle but hey!). One to three posts per 50 games (I prefer two) is not a too onerous task and should not encourage nonsense/spam posts.

Restricting the total number of games per day is not a good idea. Sometimes I feel like just saying hello and then relax with some games and somedays I just can't stop posting and I imagine many will agree with me. But it won't hurt to stop every 50 games to write a post or three! It will even give our mouse finger a break! default.tongue.gif

Well, there are no severe reactions to the current Arcade restrictions meaning we are in good course...

And we have the tournaments on too !
