if we reach the goal of 400 filled games in 2019, we will make it to at least game 18171310. Perhaps all games before 18200000 should be listed in the thread and count towards the goal?

Congrats all - 93 games filled in January!!!! That is nearly 25% of our goal for the year, all in the first month of business :!: We haven't had that many games filled since May 2017 ... which is probably when these oldest games were first posted:
Game 17488946
Game 17488949
Game 17488950
Game 17488951
Game 17488952
Game 17488955
Game 17488956
Game 17488957
Until those git filled, we won't make any progress between the gap between the oldest waiting game and the newest waiting game. So we need some sacrificial lambs to get them started, cuz they aint getting any love whatsoever.

If none of those float yer boat, be sure to grab a game off of the first post.

Keep on keeping on!

Re: Filling the Pantry: new poll

Postby Yynatago on Thu Feb 07, 2019 6:54 pm

I noticed many of the current oldest games are created by the same player. A quick search of his games found 91 waiting games, many where he is the only player, some older than 18 months (created June 2017), and many older than 6 months. I've posted on his wall requesting he drops his old games where the game is practically empty atm.

Does anyone who is active in keeping up this thread up to date reach out to repeat offenders to help keep all games fresh? Is there a general guideline you recommend when reaching out to such offenders?

I have been tempted to reach out to players who are the only ones in an old game waiting to be filled, but have not. It just seems like it is taking the easy way out to filling old, waiting games. In some instances, the only player listed in a waiting game is not even the person who originally created the game - the original creator dropped the game, or left the site, waiting for it to be filled!

My general guidelines to suggest to you when approaching people who are the only ones listed in a waiting game would be:
1) be friendly
2) suggest that they invite people to their waiting games to get them filled
3) ask why they hold on to games that are not filling
4) join their waiting games, and invite some friends!

Let me know how it works out ... and sign-up for some games in the opening post!

Re: Filling the Pantry: new poll

Postby Fewnix on Fri Feb 08, 2019 9:59 am

This is an issue I got into trouble over in the early days, when I thought we would be closing down, with Admin/BigWham help games that had gone on too long unfilled. Like if there were 5 games of St. Patricks Day or Doodle Earth set up a year ago and 5 players needed to get any one of them started, close em.

A suggestion to consider, try to fill up OR shut down all games creadted before our 18 millionth game To be precise created before
Game 18001523

3658 results on 37 pages: << < Page 35

Our 18 million one thousand and 23rd game
-------------------------------------------
by PM ing mates in the games who might want either, with your help, to fill the games and get them finally started- or close them.

It may seem a litle harsh, but it puzlles me how people could set up a game and let it go unfilled for months,over a year and then worry about it being shut down,

Having 18 Million Games filled/closed would be a consumation devoutly to be wished for. and a milestone for PR/marketing purposes.

=D> =D>
-----------

Then to get a little harsh, you could set targets to reach on a regular basis, say once a month, look at the hundred oldest games- invite people in the game to, with your help fill or close them, Maybe with admin authority yuo can give them a month to do the deed, fill them or you cose them
---

__
The down side might be reducing the choices people have through Game Finder, say I was looking for
a Fractured America game, might be willing to go a year back to find one to join, IF I could be reasonably certain it would be filled relatively soon, within a month.

But if the game has been lingering there for over a year, with more than one slot to fill, how likely someone esle will come along in the next month, find this treat waiting and join in?

This was also the first month in nearly a year where we managed to reduce the gap between oldest waiting game and newest waiting game - thanks to all who stepped up by filling a game (or a dozen!).

While you are celebrating in here, help get March off to the right foot by signing up for these, oldest waiting games in CC land:
