Other forums can't compete with the TTG fanbase

Hey guys!

I was skipping through a game forum, very big fanbase, huuuuge forum, and I noticed an announcement from the staff (I'll just paste here the short important things):

(...) If your idea for a thread has no basis for rational discussion, don't post it.

Furthermore, to EVERYONE who responds to any thread in this section, stop and think "Is this spam? Is this purely a joke post?" If the answer is yes, then don't post. This forum is not being paid for by -------- to provide practice for your burgeoning aspirations of being a comedian.

:( Dude, it's a game forum... it's a community of people who like to PLAY games... play = fun. Joke posts are funny!
I don't want to "be careful" what I post, as long as it's for fun and it's not offensive. One more reason to stick with Telltale (as if we didn't have enough reasons:p). They place the focus on fun and good manners, unlike other places where you can't share your opinion unless it's filtered and analyzed by the staff.
What do you guys think? I know that certain places have certain rules...but being serious on a GAME forum?! C'mooooon!

    Fine! I'm taking my ball and going home!

    Blasphemy!

    Name one forum community that's better than this one. Really.

  • When I was active in the MOTHER fandom, I used to be quite active in the Starmen.net forum. That forum community was incredibly chill and such and a bit more peaceful than this one. That said, it's been a while since I've gone.

    8I I didn't mean to freak out people.

  • Everyone's tastes are different. It's almost impossible to suggest a better forum than this one without somebody disagreeing.

    Too late now. Now you're going to be persecuted forever. Starting now.

  • I love the relatively lax rules here. My other forum that i sometimes visit (OfficialNintendoMagazine) has way too tight rules. Discussions about games are limited to one thread. Condensing the entire monkey island sub-forum to one thread! It's impossible to have multiple discussions going, and the like of the caption contest would be killed by people saying"OfFiCiAl ThReAd lulz!1!1!"

    Plus, threads are locked if the mods claim there is no discussion value. Reagardless of the hilarity of said thread, or the fact that it may have been a decent post (open letters, that sort of thing). Plus half the forum is filled with fanboys/girls, and the other half is filled with anti-fanboys (the " i used to like nintendo, but the wii sucks, so i'll keep telling everyone that" kind).

    Plus, everyone is friendlier here. And i love the multicultural background everyone has.

    Fix'd. :D

    Seriously, this is the only forum I am or have ever been active on. That's probably because it has cool random discussions in addition to the usual game-related stuff. It's diverse and interesting, and I likey.

  • Lots of forums have that. At least, it's not the first time I've encountered it. And fanboys and fangirls. That's already happened here. And will continue to happen the more famous TTG gets. Every game company forum is doomed to this fate.
