Meta Forum Game

Postby timonan » Thu Mar 26, 2009 11:18 pm UTC

Greeting to forum members.

Clever and addictive idea for a forum game.

Clarification on rules.

Appeal to members to play along.

Edit: an additional piece of information that should clear up all the confusion.

I propose that we make a "Meta Forum Game"
In which we make up forum games inside of the forum games.

Request for clarification, including a link to another thread or possibly another site with information on similar games.

Question if the game will be in or out of character?

I propose that recursions earn a permaban to the initiator.
I propose no ex post facto laws

Statment which describes how confusion turned to comprehension during reading of thread
Why put off till today what you could just as easily get done tomorrow?

I can mathematically prove that 1 equals 0!.

Unexpected and non-traditional play that takes advantage of the strange wording of one of the rules.

Apology about rant. Confession that rant is just a ploy to cover inadequacies. Stated intent to get back into the game and play to best of abilities.

Mediocre play.

Assertion that the needed rule has already been added into the errata. Suggestion that new posters read the thread before posting.

Patiently explains why you did not, in fact, beat that, then proceeds to point out how the comment could have been improved so that it actually would beat that.

Appeal to moderator to decide whether rules of decency have been violated in any of the above moves.

Pending official decision, update on current score given. Surprise in seeing a two-way tie for the lead.

Nunkey wrote:Proposal for a much needed rule.

More flawed logic on how the first, uneeded rule would make the second, much needed rule redundant, smug correction of percieved grammar or spelling error.

Several grammar and spelling errors.

Move that is only legal when considered in the light of nonexistant, flawed, unnecessary rule, and which confuses everyone as to precisely what has just happened.
EDIT: Correction of one outstanding flaw.

Rants about how people just play these really stupid moves that are only really permitable via strange and worrying bending of the rules and plays the most obvious move.
