Ok guys, I really don't know how to implement this, or if it even feasible, but I guess I could explain my ideas and you guys could give me your feedback or any of your own ideas. I'd rather run it by you guys first before posting about it in the other part of the forum.

Mods I think you would have to discuss it with admins, or I might have to put this int he suggestions forum if we think this is a good idea ultimaely.

Well here goes anyways...

I think we should expand the gaming forum a little bit. Like there are 3 sticky's at the top of the forum currently, I would like to see sub groups divided up sort of like that. But I mean game-specific.

Up until this past school year, I was a very active member in the BBF clan(Baptized By Fire). I pretty much was active in the Halo 2 and Chromehounds sect of the clan when I was active. Thier website is here: http://xbox.clanbbf.com/forum/index.php

If you look around there a bit, you might gain an idea of what I would like to see somewhat.

I would like to either get a FH clan going on respective systems, or at least coordinate some sort of weekly game night or something where we could try and get together and play soem games online together.

Like for example in my idea, one of the sub groups would be Rainbow Six: Vegas. There, you could discuss online strategies, as well as times when to get on to play.

So I guess it would be an "Online" specific sub group/forum.

We could make one main thread for the online coordination of that game. And it doesn't have to be ultra structured or anything(the clan if we made one), like BBF has scheduled practices(part of why I couldn't stay as active as I'd like).

I know our forum isn't as large as BBF, so if we ever wanted to pursue a clan in seriousness, we'd likely have to recruit(like I was recruited through Halo 2 by them). But I'm sure for most of us, this would be a just for fun thing.

I don't play online on most of my games, but I would like to play online more. I just don't usually like to play online unless it's with at least one "friend." So sometimes that limits me. I know I have a ton of achievements to gain because of my lack of online play, lol. But I figured if we had an area dedicated to getting together for online play, we would promote more of a interactive atmosphere in the gaming forum and maybe expose some people to online play who otherwise don't do it(for example people who always hate getting teamed up with screaming 12 year olds).

I'm really just throwing this idea out there, and I realize it'd have to be set up for each system and stuff, but I think it's not a terrible idea. If you have the time, just surf around the site I linked above(the game specific threads), and maybe you can see what I mean. I just really think that this is a way to make the gaming forum an even better aspect of the forum overall, and maybe even promote even more traffic to the site.

I think its a cool idea.

I used to be addicted to Socom 2 Online, had a good clan, played probably 10-15 hours a week.

Its hard to find time to play consistently, especially during the summer with so much going on.

If all goes according to plan I should have one or the other by the holidays so I'd definitely be down for some online gaming.

i love the idea, but it's impossible for me to be consistent. between the woman, work, and porn... there's not alot of time to dedicate to online gaming

That's why I didn't think we'd actually be able to make a clan, because people do get busier as they get older it seems, lol.

But maybe amongst us, we'll be able to figure something out with getting people to play together more frequently(if they wanted to).

Like, I know there is the gamertag thread, but I have no clue what games people own, or what they actively play online or what.

Its a great Idea I agree but like mor I don't have much time for gaming anymore i got work 10-11 hour days, school for 3-4 hours and my day is spent that doesn't include eating and showering. At most I play one the weekends once in a while now. Now a weekend get together game would be great but thats all i can manage.

Hell, even that would be cool. I just said game night because that seems like a phrase of choice.
