Just a rule of thumb: If it entails you posting a bunch without other people posting in between your posts, it's probably not going to fly.

Given that this is a discussion of the purpose and rules of one of our boards, I'm going to move this to the metaboard. I'll also alert Alth as they're the one who closed your thread, but I think a good rule of thumb is that a posting game involves rules, interaction, and structure.

Well, for one, it has to require more of its players than just blindly hitting the "Post" button as fast and as many times as possible. Beyond that, to borrow a phrase from Potter Stewart: I know it when I see it.

And that wasn't it.

I like this--it's a fairly good rule of thumb. Not perfect, but a good start.
