The F7 Thread List


I decided to create this thread list for F7 after seeing many threads (five pages worth) got autorpuned, including some I like or made. Basically, this serve as a list for all threads that exist in F7. This will allow easier access to threads you want to visit and take part on, as well as keeping the title of autopruned threads so we can remember them for revival at later date when it get autopruned.

Also, a note. Anyone is free to suggest things like categorization and others. Also, they can help me in listing the threads, by sending me links of threads they found in the TG for me to copy and paste on the list later.

The thread list:

AN games
- Your Leader's Personal Opinion on the AN's Leader
- What does the AN's name make you think of
- Mispronounce AN's name
- Describe the AN
- Compliment the Above Nation
- Describe an alternate world where the AN dominates
- Culture Shock the Above Nation
- Constructively rate the flag above you
- Guess what nation above you's capital city would look like
- What do you think life is like in the AN?
- What does the AN's school's teach kids about the AN?
- One Thing YN's Leader Doesn't Like About the AN's Leader
- Will YN Leader be a Friend with AN's Leader

Depending on how it's set up it would fit on either F7 or P2tM. It should be fine here though, if you want it make it and see how it works out.

Starting in the summer at least I will actually come out with the game (assuming I have it ready by then). Interest will need to be gauged first though.

I couldn't be too sure, but /bump is like "bumping an old thread" (reviving a dead forum thread).

Also YL (your leader), AL (above leader), BL (below leader) and /bump is to add a forum topic to the top of the topic list.

I hate being ninja'd.
Is there no solution to it???
I love small redneck American towns.
Many times I leave from Miami or NYC and start driving North or South respectively to explore these little islands of inbred tranquillity.
It's also a very patriotic experience. Most houses in these towns have the flag of the States over them . More flags than an army camp.

I'm assuming you know what an evolution forum game is? If not, then it's a forum game people for teams to compete with others in creating lifeforms, usually on a turn-by-turn basis. Check out this (unfortunately now dead) subreddit for examples https://www.reddit.com/r/EvoGames/, and I'd suggest you search out ones outside the subreddit I listed too.

If you do know, or If you read my instructions and followed my advice (I guess), then can you tell me if Forum 7 is the right place for this kind of game? It is in its essence a forum game (albeit a very complex one that requires participants to stick with their teams and therefore their creations for a long time).

Edit: Here's an example of an evolution game, and the one I was thinking of copying.

The recent occurence in the AN response threads. So as the time passed I started to notice that there's a bit of a trend with all the newcomers in the AN response threads.
A trend with all the current people on when it comes to your typical community as a whole, a code that has been not whispered but preached. So I thought I might as well make a post here and shed some light for a reference in which people can point at if someone steps out of line because we have been policing the hell out of people recently.
Things not to do. This is a list of things that'll get you skipped because it annoys the crap out of some people.
Spamming & Double posting: In the recent times users have posted back to back. This will cause some users to overlook you as they are filled with internal rage. If you further this you often times will called out sometimes mods have even been called into the scene which often times make me sigh as the conflict could be avoided. How to avoid: To have some common decency, just space out your posts. Like only post ofter every two or third post if things are slow... or busy... or ever. Also if you comment on someone's post as in a response to prior post you have to put /skip at the end.

Things you can do
While one can get frustrated by you doing too much you can also strike some nerves simply by doing too little.

If you post in a forum about national leaders try to HAVE a leader. While some people don't mind I've noticed that some do, while people take a long time making their nations detailed as possible others haven't gotten to it yet. In response I get alot of "If you dont have a leader dont post until make one." I'm not saying that's the answer, but it is. Some skip folks, others make funny jokes, you all probably experienced it or seen it some time around.

This one isnt towards just one party but two both new and old.
You see when you just flat out tell someone hey I hate explaining this a million times to someone who is purely new is a great way to turn someone away. Try explaining your problems in a calm manner, and give it time before you start accusing a user of somthing.

This post is in Demo mode and will be edited through the time of it being up, as I left out alot and just wanted to throw out a reference, I thank you for your time. If there's any other tips and reminders you feel need to be stated, or if you just want pointers just send a TG my way, I try to be friendly.

Y'all can someone explain why just posting 'bump' is considered an acceptable way of, well, bumping an F7 thread up?

Like these are just dumb forum games, if you want to bring a thread back up, just post in it and participate in the game. And if you were the last post, just delete your post and post it again, it's what I do.

I'm not even lying when I say I just ignore threads where the last post was someone just posting 'bump' tbh.

Not all bumps are used for the revival of a dead thread, some are simply busy people, and with F7 and even other sections of the site the place is huge, so some people (I'm even guilty of this.) Bump a thread to signify that they have taken note and will possibly be back when not super busy with work/school/ect.

Though I must say some do use it to revive a thread that is vacant, in a manner when a thread is going to be purged for being 'X' days of inactivity people will bump it an a manner of lifting the thread up just to slightly prolong the decay, extending and hopefully successfully reviving, though I kinda agree it is more simple to delete and repost but some user do it this way, others do it another you know.

People will also bump if it’s been over 24 hours and they haven’t gotten a response on an AN thread.
Some people design their sigs as a work of art, with links and colors and complex coding. To which I say...
