    quick question about posting - you know when theyre are too many threads on one game, the mods like to condense the posts to the one thread?

    if you have a completely different question (for eaxmple how to get part this part of the level etc? as apposed to what most of the thread is about (sys requirements/download files etc) - should it go in the same thread but be unrelated? or is it ok to start a new thread?

    i dont actually want to start a new thread, just wondering so i dont piss anyone off next time!

    cheers fella's

    In a fair world you should be able to make a seperate thread, however you should label the thread (via the title) in such a way as to avoid confusion. Just having the title "Half-Life 2" is pretty useless.

    Something like "Half-Life 2 Graphics Problems" or "Half-Life 2 Steam Registration Problems" is a lot more helpful than "OMG WTF!!! HALF LIFE!!!1111".

    thats a good point,
    Last couple of days most threads were all about the same thing so I created 1 single thread. When the 'hype' is over the thread will be unpinned.

    If you got a question related to a certain level of the game I don't mind if you create a new thread about it but then please use a title that will give some sort of hint about what's in the thread itself. I wanna ask members to stay on-topic and won't talk about other stuff related 2 that game in 'those' kind of threads so the main talking about the game will be in the sticky thread.

    or just start every thread you make with [guide] or [question] or something like that and it tells the reader what your thread will be about.

    Making them temporary subforums eliminates all that.

    The current way still doesn't get rid of the main problem....filling the Games forum with same game threads.

    Temp forums allow specific threads about individual things, if one so chooses.

    per temp.forum.

    I dont think a temp section is a good idea... we dont get that much replies/treads about 1 game to make 1 complete section only for 1 game.
