I thought of a cool forum game that might actually evolve into a real thing. Here’s how it works:
1. People establish their parties (Bronies, Inglip Followers, Trolls, etc.) by sending me private messages or posting here.
2. Once the first step is done, a new topic will be made. In that topic people can post saying that they want to run for Forum President, what party they are in, and why they would be a good president. One week after the thread is made, whoever has 10 or more karma on their post applying for presidency will become an official candidate.
3. A debate thread will be made for candidates and supporters to fight with each other. Meanwhile candidates are encouraged to remain active on the forums and try to destroy the reputation of everyone they are running against.
4. After a week of this mayhem, a poll will be held for people to narrow down candidates to one person per party.
4. Basically a repeat of Step 3, only with the remaining candidates.
5. The final election. Whoever wins is made Forum President.
I think this has a lot of potential. Sure, the Forum President won’t have any real power, but they might get a custom title or something depending on what the moderators think of this game. There may be a second election if this works out, but games like these have been known to get fucked up in the past.
