New joke forum

Now that everyone seems to treat CYC as Intermediary for GDD and even posts meant as humorous are taken seriously, we need a new joke forum. There it would be forbidden to post not-fleshed-out-enough-for-GDD type ideas and suggestions.

(I mean I guess it's not ok to report posts in CYC for being serious answers to a non-serious post :) )

Re: New joke forum

Why not keep yuiff for random thoughts, and add a design brainstorming forum?

Personally, I view all posts from the "Search for New posts" link and never know what forum any post is in.

Re: New joke forum

Given that GDD has no standards for threads beyond "not obviously a joke", I see no need for this.

Re: New joke forum

That's not true though. Threads get booted from GDD to CYC when their author was completely serious.

I think the basic idea of a "Well fleshed out ideas" design forum and a "Not so fleshed out ideas brainstorming" design forum make sense, and currently GDD and CYC fill the role. The problem is that CYC is also the "Post idiotic pictures and jokes and whatever stupid thing just popped into your head" forum. It would be nice if the brainstorming of ideas could take place in a different place than the pictures of cats forum. That would also mean people looking for design proposals to brainstorm on don't need to wade through a bunch of dumb jokes, and people looking for dumb jokes don't need to wade through stupid design proposals.

It's like if DCA and CIP were combined. While they have some tenuous similarities, they're much better as separate forums. I personally almost never visit the CIP forum, but I find the DCA forum very entertaining and useful.

Do you have any examples of this? I can't recall it happening.

Of course I don't know for sure if the authors were completely serious but here are the first three I found by searching for "moved to CYC":

Re: New joke forum

In fact, in that very search I found this:

Duvessa wrote:bcadren DOES post in GDD. But his posts get moved to CYC.


So you apparently used to know it happens. Did you hit your head recently? :P

I thought his posts in GDD were jokes, along with the Pollen Golem post you linked. I'll accept the other two examples and retract that statement, though.

LOL PWND XD /irony

But seriously, this request seems to come up pretty often. Would it be difficult to add another subforum with the purpose of being the development suggestion side of CYC? Call it the "Drunken Shouting about Game Design" forum. People can post all their dumb half baked ideas, and once in a while maybe one gets elevated to the point that it can be posted in GDD. And CYC can be what it was always meant to be, a silly forum for various off topic nonsense.

Re: New joke forum

I don't see the need for a forum of "Hey, come up with ideas for me!"

But the point of this thread is that CYC is currently something like that and we need a new forum for humorous posts.
