    It never even occurred to me that anyone cares about their post count, lol. But even if we enjoy them, games don't belong here if they detract from the purpose of this
    forum, or if they make it harder for our mods to do their job, keeping this the kind of forum we & others want to participate in.

    Some new people see it as a status and not really relevant to experience.

    Old threads may get locked as they are of no benefit.
    of course, this is a reptile forum, specifically it's supposed to be a BP forum first. i think there is space for reptiles and off-topic chatter and fun to co-exist. TBH i've become jaded by many of the threads and questions about basic husbandry and snakekeeping. i'm really happy that there are still plenty o' peeps with patience who could direct, answer or help. i've learned alot of this forum and others and still try to help out when/where i can if something goes unanswered or whatever. in the meantime, i like to add a little spice to our wonderful forum and give some fellow forumers (esp regs) news, fun, discussion topics, etc. etc. while we tick the day away or wait for the next thread to pop up.

    that was for u and you're welcome.

    those are my least fav games. they are just post count fillers IMO.

    to our 2 original ones, & lock up the rest...it's over-kill, even for "off-topic".

    Could always vote (have a poll) on this?
    did someone say poll?

Thank you all so much.
    Welcome SilasHorn'sHerptiles! this forum has everything - BP and reptile knowledge and fun.

    also did u make a typo in your username? check out this thread (https://ball-pythons.net/forums/show...79-Name-Change) and a Mod/Admin should be able to help u out to correct it if u prefer your name to be SilasHorn'sReptiles.

    do u Val!

    i don't think so either. many of the reg's who answer questions are the biggest playas.

    exactly. and i don't think it hurts to bamp an old game. u don't need the OP to play, just some peeps to keep the game going. if no one plays, it just falls to the bottom of the forum.

    that's a good idea! maybe even more Mod's? i know Deb pulls in alotta OT (even when u dont' see her ) and maybe it's time for peeps to get a promotion.

    I have created a new subforum in the Off Topic forum called Games: https://ball-pythons.net/forums/foru....php?199-Games. Please put all new game related posts in this forum. We will be moving all of the old game threads to this forum as we find them.

    I will be making a few more changes and announcements regarding the Games forum in the coming days.

    So this way (I'm assuming) the games won't take over or distract from the main (home) page? Awesome!!!

    Correct games are no longer the first thing potential, new and regular members will see when launching our page.
