    Cool Here is a good (or WAY good) idea!

    How about you create a topic, or forum, or whatever you want to call it, for all of the high scores?

    If a game has a time, or a score, or something similar, then whenever someone wins, and has a winning score, they take a screenshot.
    If they show their screenshot, and it is the new high score for that game, they get their name put in as the lead score on the (sticky, ) front page.

    Also, this will add excitement and a new challenge to old games, trying to get the high score. If Mistery has the high score, EscapeGirl can do everything in her power to beat it!
    (Go ahead and edit this out if you don't like me using you as examples, )


    The best part (for the mods) is, you would not have to do a lot of work to get it in, because the users would have to post with their screenshots to get on the board, and you would not have to update every single game you have to start it up! Just once for each time a score is posted/beaten. No research or hard work on your part, because the users have to do it if they want their score on the front page. All you have to do is press EDIT on the first post to change the scores.

    Can you please clarify these questions that I have, so that I fully understand what your idea is:

    - What do you mean with "they get their name put in as the lead score on the (sticky, ) front page."?

    - Do you think of creating a separate thread for each game with highscores?

    #1: It was just like a "You should make it sticky, 'wink wink'"
    #2: Yes, but i've seen people call them topics, messages, etc.

    Here is an example:


    ________________________________________________
    The Official Gamershood Members High Score List

    This is where all of the high scores for gamershood members will be posted.
    Rules:
    (explain the rules [breifly explained above] in detail here)

    Categories:
    Room Escape Games:
    | This Escape: Escape girl got out with a time of 2:51
    | That Escape: Mistery beat it, with perfect ending, with 3:27

    Adventure:
    | Adventure 1: Shining Star got a high score of 999!
    | Adventure 2: Dia was the first person to beat the boss!

    Action:
    | Shoot 'em up: Midnight killed 5,000 enemies!
    | Endurance: Someguy lated 5 hours!

    It's not a bad idea, actually! I like it too. But wouldn't it be too complicated to do that for every game?

    5 hours? I'd go insane!

    But really, this looks like a good idea.
    I think that it could be more condensed, by having a weekly challenge with one game at a time, and the mods could post the high scores for that game that week.

    Yes, I agree with Someguy. Now, that'd be something. Having a race for a game every week! It'd be fun and challening too. I love the idea!

    I like this idea, but we would probably have to have different threads for different games, there might be a lot. Or like a weekly thing like someguy

    This is starting to seem very similar to the Games Contest thread, but with a longer time period.
