I have ample evidence that ET is a weedy little twerp.

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!

Today we’ve launched the first release of the ForumBuildr v2.0 Beta, and I figured I’d create a thread to talk about it and answer any questions as we all start to use it.

In the first week, all you can do is submit ideas. This process is anonymous so please make no mention of who you are in your submissions. Everyone is encouraged to vote on all submitted ideas, and then when the week is over the top one will be picked and then the fun stuff starts!

How difficult will the new forums be? Will you choose difficulty based on forum topic?

What happens if the winner of the weekly poll is a forum which you have already planned to be in episode 2?

Do you prefer ice-cream cake over regular cake?

Because we haven’t thought of a better way to pick difficulty, at first yes, we will pick the difficulty. One approach that crossed my mind was to alter the difficulty of the forums based on how much they’re played somehow, but we can play with that as we go along.

I’m not sure, it would depend how similar they are. Like for example one of the forums being voted up right now is close something we had on our list for Episode 2, but we hadn’t started work on it yet. I would be more concerned if we’d already completed it yet.

Having said that, there’s no reason why we couldn’t have two forums in the game on the same subject, god knows that’s the way things are on the real Internet. We would have to put some effort into differentiating them though.

Absolutely, yes.

Trying to create drama to drum up the ratings by any means necessary!

If we have multiple characters, do we get multiple votes?

No, to prevent people from buying votes they’re based on your user account, not the character you’re logged in with.

In order to prevent suggestions that might parallel EpII ideas I suggest each week we all vote for only the forums most surreal and hilarious in prospect (i.e. CATURDAY)

I would probably guess the anime one would be something coming for episode two (too?) since the whole community has been worth pwning since day one of the internet.

It is interesting watching what people vote up and down. I am guessing some personal convictions are coming to light, as far as content.

It is interesting, isn’t it? One that I think would be a great topic is below 0!

I think the current top three would all make great forums though, although the name Caturday is pretty similar to the Re-Re attack “It’s Caturday” Log in to see images!

I think hyperfighter extreme molester is a pretty funny concept even if the idea as a forum seems pretty limited

I’ve mostly enjoyed those that mesh with the existing forum descriptions. In other words, you take a slightly mocking (but not overly harsh) tone and write as a third party observer.

Also, people should remember that Forumwarz has thus far been free of copyrighted/trademarked real world stuff. Make it close enough that you can tell what the equivalent is but not the same and it’ll match better with the theme, especially if you can throw in a pun somewhere.

If ‘It’s Caturday’ were to win, would you change the title or would you just delete the entry for bureaucratic reasons and choose the next-highest rating idea as that week’s winner?

My thinking is we’ll probably just change the name of the Re-Re attack.

Of course, because we’re not letting you upload pictures of cats, it’s going to be limited to talking about cats or talking as though you WERE cats…in any case, it looks to be in third place right now.

I have a feeling in the future there’ll be lots of pages of suggestions to go through, so perhaps we could get some sort of widget (or something) that, as an option, could be placed on the character pane underneath the status boxes that displays a random forum suggestion that we haven’t voted on, and the option to vote it up or down?
