    *** FORUM RE-OPENED *** Please Read ***

    Please make sure you only use the Games threads for game playing.

    If you wish to make a comment to someone based on their answer to a question, greet them, pass comment on their avatar etc. please send them a Private Message rather than post the comment in the game threads.

    We have a number of threads in the General Discussion forum where you can chat to each other, so please feel free to take any discussion there.
    If necessary PM each other to say you've left a comment in a General Discussion thread.

    Thank you

    Re: Chatting in Games Threads. **Please Read**

    Fun and Games has always been just that: FUN and GAMES and we have had very few problems in this forum over the years. Recently, we’ve had enough complaints from posters about the tone in this forum right now that we’re stepping in, yet again.

    It seems as if some posters need a reminder about what the Fun and Games forum is for or rather, what it is not for. This is not a forum for personal chit chat and it is most definitely NOT a forum to discuss The Bachelorette or any other reality show. Sly spoilers are not cute and they are not allowed. Also not allowed are little passive aggressive digs at other posters. This all ends NOW.

    From here on out, we’re not going to tolerate any more of the chit chat, spoiler talk, passive aggressive crap, and anything else that is against the rules of this site or causes discord. This forum is for ALL posters. It is not a private forum for a small group of posters and if people continue to cause trouble, we’ll start handing down infractions and banning posters.

    This is why we can’t have nice things.

    Since that last message seems to have been completely ignored, now we’re taking more serious steps. We’ve had way too much drama from this forum – a forum we created for members to play in when they were not discussing reality TV (the main point of this site). The quantity of reported posts and the ridiculous drama going on in this forum is not acceptable and we’re just not going to put up with it any more.

    We are not going to tolerate personal drama being brought into this, or any, forum. The snide, passive aggressive posts have not gone unnoticed and frankly, it’s embarrassing that grown adults are behaving this way. We’re not going to put up with all the personal drama and sniping that’s been going on.

    If you have issues with another poster or posters, you have only two options: contact a moderator or put the poster/posters on ignore. Period. Taking it to the board or retaliating is going to lead the infractions and bans and you will have no one to blame but yourself.

    We’re closing this forum for a while. Apologies to the longtime posters who have always played by the rules in here. It stinks that you have to be “punished” for the behavior of others, but we’ve been left with no other choice. The forum will open back up when the moderators decide it’s time to do so. Until then, please get out into the other forums and have fun!

    Re: ***UPDATED*** FORUM CLOSED **Please Read**

    Okay folks, we’re going to try this one more time. We’re re-opening the forum to new posts. It’s been a month, so we hope everyone has had time to chill and is ready to use the forum in the way we intended.

    The Fun and Games forum is mean to be a place where you play the occasional game when you aren’t posting about reality TV, which is still the main focus of this site. We ask that you have fun, don’t take things so seriously and leave the personal discord and cliquishness out. If we have any more problems with passive aggressive posting, members repeatedly reporting posts just because they don’t like the poster, or any other bickering, we’ll close the forum permanently and issue bans. If you see a problem developing, please PM a moderator and we’ll take care of it.

    Additionally, if we hear any further reports of posters using the PM system to harass or bully other members, we’ll remove that poster’s access to the PM system. We have the PM system as a convenience to our members, but if a poster is using it to intimidate, that’s where we step in.

    Now, PLEASE jump in a have fun!
