Games in sign-ups. I know here the games usually happen in the same thread where you sign up, but it can get a little confusing, especially with so many games putting how many members are left out of the original number in their topic titles. I'm waiting for a few games to start, but I find myself having to search for them amongst all the other threads. Just an idea.

There are approximately ten threads ongoing. If you play moderately (like I'm trying atm) you don't participate in more than 3 games, which means you only have to find 3 of the 10 topics. Most games are themed these days so that makes it even easier to locate them.

If you play in all ten, there shouldn't be a problem either.

You can also consider subbing to the games you are playing or have signed up for.

Check a few topics down bud, I suggested something of a sign up + Reserve list all in one sticky thread on the main page.

It may be a choice if enough people support it.

We should put tags on games that are in signups, like + signs or something.

This actually sounds like a good idea. Or we could add "signups" to the title, but I guess that takes longer to read. Those plus signs are brilliant.

This is something the moderators discussed and decided would segment the forum. I would be all for sticking games that are in sign ups to the upcoming games thread, if we could keep it updated.

Of course. Why everyone knows that plus signs are the universal symbol for "open for signups".

IKR? It's so much better than making easily-implemented tags for this forum to show the game is in sign-ups.

Indeed, because we know that EVERYONE who enters the mafia forum will read the handbook first. Just like EVERYONE who posts in GD reads the community guidelines first.

Is it really so hard to distinguish filled and non-filled games? Do we really think that adding ++ tags will raise the sign-up rates? ffs people, if your game isn't filling it's probably because there are too many games or nobody wants to join it.

I'm assuming y'all have eyes and basic comprehension abilities. Use them.

It all blends together. When you see threads with stuff like "12/13", that would suggest one more player is needed.

Nowhere else but here. Even forums with Queue sections usually just use that kind of thing for games in sign-ups.
