Games should require some thought or creativity (karma: 1)

I locked the "^" game because it was getting too long. Also, it seems to me that the games should require some thought or creativity or it becomes little more than star farming.

Now I understand why you locked it.

Well, I don´t think it was star faming. I can tell you why. I was one of the persons who really really loved this game. I did it because it´s fun. Not because of any stars. If you want, you can delete all my stars. It would be okay for me.
It´s also a great thought that a game should be creative. But I would also say, that the ^game is creative. It´s hard to find new things to post there sometimes and I searched in the member´s profiles for new infos I could post. I learned a lot about them and they came closer to me. That´s why I liked it. And isn´t fun very important for a game, too? We play games, because we want to have fun. That´s the first reason why games exist. And I don´t understand why you locked the ^game, but not other games. There are lot´s of games that are a bit liked it. Like the "this or that" game or the "say anything" game. The ^game was the most popular one, but that´s the only huge difference. It seems for me that lot´s of people liked to play it and had fun with it, so for me it seems to be unfair to lock it. I really don´t think it was star faming, it was just fun. Fun isn´t something bad.

I can really understand why you thought it might be uncreative or star faming, but for me it wasn´t. I really hope you think about it once more if you open it again or allow us to start a new one. I loved it so much. :(
Please, please think about it again.

I understand where you are coming from with the star farming situation. For some people, yes, it may be a game just to get stars, but that can happen with any other post on this whole site! Some of us actually post creative responses in "The ^ Game" and I feel like it gets us all to know each other so much better because you learn more about different members. Sure, it might not be too creative when someone says "^'s username is DanceChica02" but most of the time people will actually seek out interesting and fun info about a member through their profile and other posts. I've actually made friends just from playing this game! Even though there may be some boring replies, what about the ballet photos board where somebody posts a pic and a reply just says "cool" Those threads don't get locked... Well those are just my thoughts, thanks for hearing me out.

No! The ^ game rocked! I'm pretty sure that nobody was actually thinking of stars when they put down their comments. And it's really hard to think of creative games, that everyone can play. I mean the people who ^ed a lot were people who post a lot in other subjects as well, so a few extra ^s shouldn't make that much of a difference. For instance, the three main ^ers were people who had comments in the thousands anyway! It's just a drag to see it go, I guess.

Oh!!!! Thank you so much! I really missed this game. It´s true, we don´t need the same game here twice, but I really really appreciate (sp?) that you opened the newer one again. THANKS! :)
