    Let's do a quick checklist.
    *Advertising companies: Nope.
    *Posting multiple copies of the same thread: Nope.
    *OP bumping the OP's thread repeatedly: Nope
    *Posting nonsense to raise post counts: They are counting. Nope
    *Disrupt forum activities: Nope

    It is a forum game. There's nothing against forum games as far as I know. I don't play the game, and I don't intend to, but as you can see, it's not illegal.

    Or discord. It works, too.

    Depends on the dumbness of the "game". If it is "Count to 1 million" it is really dumb and should be removed.

    Admittedly "Count to one million" was really cringy...
    Imo it deserved to be removed.

    @GrowH: Well the thread had actual sentences rather than a normal Count 1 to X forum game to be fair...

    It should not have been closed down, and is likely a result of Nostos' incompetence. I dont really want to place the new FGs in a bad light, but Nostos antics are becoming ridiculous - he appears unhelpful and unprofessional and I believe he should slow down.

    Disclaimer: I hate the forum game too, but it violates no rules, therefore it should not have been closed down.

    I was actually having a decent conversation too lol.

    Don't see why the new guardians are removing these games when they've been left open by Ubisoft for weeks? If they've been open then that means Ubisoft has acknowledged them and left them open.

    Count to one million was pretty much a post raising machine sort of post.

    The thread was used to simply boost post count - regardless of if there were conversations held there it was and is spam. The only reason it was open for so long is there aren't a ton of active moderators on the forums, which is what we're here for.

    Forum games and spam aren't mutually exclusive - this was a forum game that is spam. Not to mention the OP of the thread was banned.

    Closing thread.
