(Originally titled: So I was looking back at old threads...)

And I saw Forum Wars and remembered how much fun the forum had back then. It was back in what was considered the forums "Golden Age". It was pretty simple, choose between two members and one member would stand on top. It was not done to spite anyone, but rather a fun, simple game that got a lot of people active. We had constant battles of well-known, respected members versus new, making their mark, underdogs. Heck, in forum wars 2, I seem to remember the underdog taking the crown.

Anyway, I was thinking, why can't we have a simple event like this? Something that isn't that hard to organize, but would motivate people to check in on the forum more often and rally together the forum. It's true that these days we all have a lot on our plate, like college and work. But why not make something simple like Forum Wars that doesn't take much time to organize, is easy for people to do, and can bring out some the competitive spirit in forum members that made the forum such a great place to hang out back in the day?

Anyway, I'm just curious what you all think. Would doing something like Forum Wars again motivate you to check up on the forum more often than you do now? I know we're all busy, but would it motivate you to take a minute or two during the day to see how the competition is going? Maybe you like the idea of an event but would prefer it to be something else? Would you rather not have an event and just stick to what we're doing now?

Put down what you think here. I'm curious to see what everyone thinks. This isn't something I've discussed with Adam, or am planning to do. It's simply an idea I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on.

I know we don't have a lot of active members. But I do know we have a few people check in from time to time. I'm just wondering if something like this would motivate people to be more excited to see the forum than usual.

Yeah, I say give it a try. There's nothing to loose. And there are not too many people for it to get out of control, like the second one.

I would be up for it. I may not post all the time like I used to, but I definitely check up on the forums everyday, so yeah. It should be fun.

I'm in. It all seems reasonable. I'll probably be the most frequent poster.

I think there's enough support. I don't remember the rules or anything so I nominate THO to explain / organize this event :P

I'm going to have to look back at how Forum Wars I and II worked more closely and figure out the best way to to handle it so we don't have a similar situation to Forum Wars II. Shouldn't take that long, but it's not going to happen today since I need to move out of my college dorm since it's the end of the semester.

I'll try to have a sign-up/rules thread up sometime this week.

Good thingy Trystobefunny isn't going to be running it. Unless you still feel that I should be banned from it. If that's the case, I will still understand it.
