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!

  • Yeah, being serious can suck. Sometimes I get way too serious and have to stop and say to myself, man just calm the hell down and chill out. I think people on video game forums need to SERIOUSLY chill, a LOT. Sometimes things just go from "fandom" to "fandumb".

    They got me... I never say silly things for the sheer joy of it, or in the hope of making someone smile, or as a way to connect with other human beings. It's definitely all about my career aspirations.
  • Well, I'm just glad that through Telltale I met so many cool people! The internet CAN be a cool place to socialize on!

    ...oh, you did not just say that!
  • Well, I wouldn't last a day over there.
  • I hope (and expect) that that forum turns into a ghost town.

    But seriously, this forum community isn't the best, but it is quite pleasant.
