As @360-International once said on the 5th of April in the 2015th year...

Please do not create excessive numbers of alternate accounts. This is spam.

So please, don't do it.  It's a very quick way to get all of your accounts banned.

Additionally, you may ruin new user's experience as we have shut down registrations several times due to this issue (which is something I bet none of us want as we appreciate new users on this site?)...  Soooo
Don't ruin the experience of others.

Thank you.  We appreciate it.  smile

Repeat after me: Announcements!

Hope your 4th of July is going well today!  I'm definitely staying up late... lol
Anyways, we made a few tweaks to the rules regarding Username Changes after receiving some feedback that half a year was a bit of a wait.  As such, most of these changes is shortening the timing and a few specifics on how you can change your username.  The process to change it, however, remains the same.
Let's take a closer look:
Please note: The term one month is defined as one calendar month (e.g. Jul. 5-Aug.5, Dec. 31-Jan. 31).

- All username changes are required to without exception to abide by the Community Guidelines.
- You can't change your username to something too similar to another user, as this is impersonation.
- Your account must be at least 6 months old and have at least 150 posts.
Replace with: - Your account must be at least one month old and have at least 100 posts.
- You can only change your username once every 6 months.
Replace with: - You can only change your username once every month.
- Joke changes are not allowed. Once you change your username, it may not be changed for another one month.
- A working e-mail is required in order to change your username.
- Your account must be in good standing in order to receive a username change.
- Please refrain from using formatting (i.e. underlining, color) to show your requested username.  It will make it easier to verify.  However, it is recommended that you use italics to distinguish your username from your other text.
Replace with: - Please distinguish your new username using formatting such as italics. It will prevent confusion and make it easier to verify.
Add: - Username Change "Undos" may only be changed back to their original versions, e.g. @Alice10 can't change to @GamerGirl, then change her mind and change to @xXAliceXx. She can only change back to @Alice10.

Remember, you will be required to wait a full calendar month after your new username is in effect.  You cannot request for any new username change during this period.

We hope that these rules will allow more users to change their usernames as they wish.  Have a good rest of the day/night!

Users are reminded that being respectful towards other members of this site involves being honest. Please don't fake crises, disaster, or illness in order to garner other people's sympathy or to see how they would react. Also, do not use alt accounts to pretend you are someone other than yourself. This goes for all TBG functions including the main website and the Discord. Thank you, and happy TBGing.

On the Third day of Christmas joefarebrother gave to me:
Three TBG Team admins
Two account deletions
and no more account registration!

tongue

I'm happy to announce that joefarebrother has promoted my colleagues, Tymewalk and Fell Rekekka, and I to TBG Team members.

We're still your good ol' moderators albeit we get access to more cool things than previous.  You probably have seen a few subtle changes around the site but there won't be any huge changes at the moment (no access to the site code and stuff).  We're excited to see what new things we'll be able to do with you guys!

Have a safe holiday season!

Edit: We’re also sad to say that Heathcliffe has stepped down from her position as administrator.  She hopes to come on occasionally to say hello, though.  smile

Hi folks,

Due to recent spamming, we’ve disabled the posting of new topics for New TBGers.  This is effective immediately.
For those of you who are “new” here, you can still participate by replying to the existing games.  However, you will not be allowed to create a new game until you’ve become a TBGer (21+ posts).

Non-English TBGs are now officially endorsed!

Hello everyone! Recently the mod team has seen an influx of Esperanto posts on the TBGs, so we've decided to go ahead and officially endorse games in languages other than English!

Please keep in mind that all community guidelines still apply, regardless of language. Remember to be respectful to all users, as not everyone speaks the same languages, and to keep your posts appropriate. If you see something inappropriate, remember to report it!

We look forward to seeing what non-English-based games TBGers create in the future! Have fun!

Re: Recent Website Issues
Hi folks!  We're currently looking into the recent website errors where people have not been able to post.  We're not sure what's going on, but hopefully, we'll find a solution.

Thanks for your patience! smile
