? about Traffic Control section
« on: February 19, 2023, 12:31:18 PM »

Can the games/challenges threads be collected into their own pinned topic section (like the state pinned topics within the regional boards)?  Just wondering, as it would be easier to see the threads specifically about traffic control that way.  Just wondering, and TIA.

This was brought up recently and the mods were against it.

The only thing saving the forum is the fact the game threads are well-enough titled to identify them as such.

Game threads seem to take up half the new posts in a day as is.  Couldn't get much worse if a new board for them was created.

But, mods did say they were afraid even more game threads would proliferate if they were shut in their own room, so...whatever.

The games are one of my favorite parts of this forum so I'm all for promoting them more.

Under the first mod regime back in 2009 there was a game forum and this was exactly what happened, so it's not like it's a completely unfounded worry. (Then again, the staff at that time weren't particularly worried about keeping them transportation-related either, and were more than happy to start things like "Cosmic Bbar", whatever that was.)
