The Games forum has been archived as of today and two new forums created to replace it:The Apple Games forum is for discussions about computer-based games, primarily games for Macintoshes and iPods. It also covers discussion and speculation about games for other Apple devices (iPhone, Apple TV, new devices) and games for Windows or other operating systems. This Apple Games forum is now open and a number of recently active threads have been moved there, while less-recently active threads will stay in the archived Games forum. Additional threads will be moved as well. The Console Games forum is for discussions about console-based games and hand-held game devices not made by Apple. Posts do not count in the Console Games forum. The forum is starting out empty, so nobody has lost post count. The Console Games forum will open on Tuesday May 1. The two-week moratorium on console game discussions between now and then has been instituted because of ongoing problems with console game threads. This will let these issues settle and give us a chance to straighten out any lingering problems before we move on. In making these changes, the other admins and moderators and I hope to give more emphasis to games for Apple products, avoid the distractions that resulted from mixing the two areas, and make both forums more enjoyable and useful places for game aficionados to visit. As we make this transition we ask for your cooperation, support, and patience, as well as your usual comments and suggestions. If we experience glitches in the setup, let us know. We'll work to get things working smoothly. Over the next few days, we will likely be making some minor tweaks and moving additional threads to Apple Games. We can anticipate some issues, such as the proper place for threads that span both computer and console gaming (e.g., console emulators, or games like Final Fantasy XI that run on computers AND game consoles) and how to deal with the threads in which members exchange game codes, as listed in the Game Code Exchange Threads thread. We'll work on these, and other issues that come up. If you have immediate concerns or questions, you can post here or send me a Private Message.
