Is it just me or do the game-threads in piplounge seem to "clog" up the forum a bit?  

I was wondering if a "Quizzes and Games Forum" may not be better for these.  It would free up the lounge a bit, and still give a place for the long-threaded games.

Any votes?

LOL. I'll tell you what, Ess. If the Lounge truly starts getting a little clogged, I'll knock out a wall or two and make the room a little bigger. Okay?

I don't mind your laughter.
But it was not suggested as a joke.
Even scholarly forums have "quizzes and game" rooms to test their wits, mostly on some specific subject, apart from general discussion.  In this case, Poetry would be the most relevant subject; but not necessarily what we should need to conform to.  It was just a suggestion.  Thanks for your answer.

If you think about it, Ess, a lounge is traditionally a place to read, play games, or otherwise entertain yourself. Thinking of it that way, it's quite appropriate to use the Lounge as a place for games, quizzes and the like.

Just a scientific observation:


Now that the long game-thread "Song Title-Game II" is at the top of the list in piplounge again, activity in sharing discussions and discourse is almost completly absent and staying away again.

Although earlier when the thread was out of the way and under quite a few posts, discussions were beginning to blossom forth again.
