Default Playing games.

I am thinking playing games on this forum gets about as much attention as routing on this forum. I guess it's alright there sure a lot of folks playing them.

So what is y'all's opinion?

Everything changes.
What with games and CNC routing, I'm finding less and less to post about every week.

Not complaining, just stating what is.

This debate happened years ago, and the solution then was they didn't show up in the Today's Posts section. They started showing up again there a little while back.

If it contributes to the friendly atmosphere on the site I can deal with it, I just scroll past them when I am not interested.

I have no real big issue with them , but I wish they could be setup in such a way that when I hit active topics , that they didn’t appear , as they’ve kinda taken over half the page recently

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I like a couple of the games, but I wish they didn't fill up the recent discussions. Or maybe they could be in a second portion of that list. I think some of the more conventional woodworkers are ageing out. I know I've not been able to do anything much for about 6 weeks. The social side of the site is pretty important to a lot of us.

I'm a sucker for games generally (I find it hard to resist picking up a pen when I see a Sudoku or a crossword in a newspaper or magazine), and when I recently returned to these forums after a long absence, I got sucked into the games for a short while. Then I saw a post that made me realise that some members were becoming irritated at the seeming dominance of game posts over the woodworking discussions that, after all, are what the forums exist for. So I pulled out (well, almost!) of game participation in consideration of those who might be irritated. My feeling is that the answer might be to exclude the game post notifications from the Recent Dicussions window.

I looked at maybe 2 of the games, but no interest.

It's rare that I read every post every day. I scan the titles and/or the opening paragraph and skip what i'm not interested in. For example, I have neither the space nor the money to purchase a CNC machine although I'd love to have one. So, I normally don't read the CNC posts. I'm not interested in games, other than one I play on my phone, so I just skip over them too. I don't see them as overwhelming, just another post to be skipped. For me, if there's one post a day through which I can lean something or contribute to, that's a good day. Don't care about the rest. Just my opinion.

We have a few games that have been going forever, but recently non woodworking members have added 10 games. Guess they found a free game site.
