Hello!
I was going through the Continuous games and I saw the The Story of Randomness forum thread, which has currently been locked.
Does this mean it can be taken off the list now?

Tai here, editing the thread, will update this post on what I did so far. Other editors, please use this post as a log for today too, since I don’t have time as power to manage all of the updates.

Done.
Removed Cop Mafia By Bluji because it’s locked.

EDIT:
I also seem to fked something up in the Stragedy sub of the games, – if your game isn’t in it, please tell me.- The games ARE in the sourcetext, but don’t show up. Other editors please help. Do I have something wrong, cause some link redirect me to this thread.

Not sure if anybody’s still talking about this, but for the current MFGF thread, I think people running continuous games should still need to ask for approval for a second game. Even if we did stomp out the loophole of making ANOTHER continuous game, it would still encourage continuous games, which, while fun, generate a lot of spam and push other games to the bottom.

As another solution, we COULD have one public profile for continuous games… the Editor profile could even do this. They would, with permission, remake continuous game threads and credit the original user (It would essentially be his without taking a game slot.) and people could request continuous games. It could work on a rotational slot basis, depending on what people want, and how many requests there are. This would help to regulate said games, and allow people with an idea for a continuous game to still run an RP.

Of course, people can still make continuous games if they want, but a lot of people will probably go with the MFGF-hosted ones. Input?

Also, new topic to add to the que:

There have been many malicious people in FGF, trying to bring it down, and the number of integral or skilled people is drying up.

We need to do SOMETHING to keep it running, because one day, a whole new set of players will be here, and we need to be able to make sure THEY can learn.

So, we need something… the FGenaissance, or something. We need to actively teach newcomers how to treat fellow FGF members, and how to host games, and tutorials on the MFGF thread just WON’T DO IT!

We need to go deeper than words. We need to go into games themselves to teach, with action, outreach to newcomers and teach them how to act. Why not set up apprenticeships, let a newcomer co-host your game? (Every screw up they make is a learning experience, after all.)

This is a major problem, because if we, some of the original and second generation of FGF, don’t help our third-gens out, then FGF WILL DIE. So we need to outreach, support growth, and teach people how to play the way things were meant to be played.

And sure, every new group, player, and generation will bring new ideas, new twists, but there are still core values and rules, and newcomers need to learn different playstyles, different hoststyles, and, most importatnly, how to teach these things to the NEXT generation.

So, tell your friends, cousins, even random people in chat to join FGF if they seem nice enough. Because we need people to support us, and we need to teach newcomers how to FGF. And when one learns, they can teach more.

I count myself as one of these new people.

I am learning a lot just by being here so as long as these generations are overlapping I don’t think this should be too much of a problem. Telling it as if it was a new generation is maybe alienating them, after all, the flow of people into FGF should be steady, and hopefully the outflow of older members (as regrettable as it is) should be balanced out by the new/medium length gamers learning to play.

All we have to do is encourage friends or associates online to come, if they are into RPing or strategy or whatever else, you can always drag them in here, hell, this is how I arrived, by word of mouth from Knoob.

So I believe as long as there are people here willing to spread the word, like you said, then that’s all we need. Teaching isn’t an issue, if they are interested then they will learn, if they aren’t interested then, hell, they may as well not be here at all.

I like rosate’s apprenticeship idea.

Anyone who wants may privately contact me for a spot as co-host of my next mafia.

I too approve of this idea.

I also think the apprenticeship idea is a good one.

I do not support this apprenticeship idea. On first glance, it may seem nice and all, but, every mistake they make will not be blamed on them, it will only ruin a perfectly well made game, I’d rather have them play the game first, and if they’re doing good enough, and have a well understanding of the rules and other things, I would then make them my co-host so they too, could realize how hosting a game is before actually doing it, so their games could be better, the case is different in mafias, I’d rather make them play a couple mafias first before having them co-host, apprenticeship to first-timers will only ruin FGF. However, if your basic idea was to say what I just said, then I agree.

Happy Birthday Minnakht!

I am tempted to write a really long speech about how awesome a person you are, but _I don’t have the time- that, and I don’t have enough words in my dictionary that are synonyms of awesome. You have been a good friend and, more importantly, an intelligent one who has always pointed out my shortcomings and shown me where I messed up, when I frequently did. Thank you for being the integral part of the community that you are, even if you have become a lot less active in recent times. Hope you have a great day!

Then don’t allow apprentices on your games if you make any.

EDIT: If you guys would like, I can make a thread for people offering apprentice spots, or maybe the Masterthread can track them if theres enough support.

I cant find the original post regarding apprenticeship, so I cannot convey an opinion. All I see is what Jask posted.

I am in favor of having it on the master thread, so that the thread doesn’t get lost and forgotten like the “Choose my next game” thread often does. If there’s lots of activity it could be pushed into obscurity so it’s probably better to implement it here.

Another thing I want to know is, what are the generations? I mean like, what’s the time-frame we are talking about here? I never heard of 3rd 2nd or 1st generations before I saw it in this thread.

For Kid dude:

It’s Rosate’s first post on this page, just look through the names.
