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.

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.

what do you mean, Community Guidelines? and why would we want a Mafia Handbook. no one should even bother writing one.

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.

Pretty much.


I have always been of the opinion that if you can't figure out how the signups work, you don't have the deductive reasoning to play here anyhow. SIGNUPS is usually posted in the title and that is a thousand times more descriptive then ++ ++ for a additional 2 characters. If the game is 10 pages long and people are VOTING, guess what? It's not in signups.

Nothing wrong with making things less cluttered. An archive was created.

Haha, exactly. Still might be useful for everyone to put sign ups in their title so the noobs can find them. The ++ tags are unknown to anyone but those who play here. I use **SIGN UPS** for my threads and I think that's as clear as you're gonna make it. Also, don't clutter f*ck the title of the thread until you're at least full :/ That just makes it look ugly more than anything else.

In the future people will say:
"I have always been of the opinion that if you can't figure out that the ++ tags mean the game is in signups, you don't have the deductive reasoning to play here anyhow."

BTW edoc this sentence that you wrote (that I twisted around) could easily be made to support my case too. Just saying.
