As the new local moderator of Forum Games, I only have a few things that I want to add to the rules.
- Try to avoid back to back posting. That is when the same two people are posting right after each other. It doesn't have to be the same two people. It can also mean when one user posts in a thread and simply waits for someone to reply so that then can post once again. This basically what happened in The Hell Game half a year ago. You can find a good example of this rule right here and beyond that post.
- This SMWC rule still applies:

Don't post exclusively in those forums. It does not make you look good at all. They are there to allow users to unwind a little, not vomit mass amounts of crap posts.
The people who are usually breaking this rule are the more newer members. If 95% (or close to that) of your posts are in Forum Games, then you need to take time off from this section and visit the other forums to find something to reply in.
This will most likely a bad idea, but what about putting some
games (or WOI threads) into old news, so that it it would not
be for-*shudders*-postcount++, but for fun. I know this will be
a bad idea for staff members who moderate news will have
a bigger job, and it will confuse other members.
