I've been around the site for a really long time; I am just starting to check out the forums though. I am somewhere between a n00b and a veteran. Any advice for a good area to converse within the forums?

Also, why have I never gotten a merit? I occasionally leave the best comments ever on games.

It is great that you have decided to look at the forums more often.

Also, why have I never gotten a merit?


Try the newer games.

Thanks for the response, plokkey. I guess I will keep putting out mostly constructive reviews and hope I get a merit.

Moderators aren't stupid, they know that for a fact so they check all the pages of new games.

I never said they are, and they don't always check the comments of the new games because they're always too busy moderating around the site.

Well, it depends on how often the mods check for meritable comments...
Lately, the mods haven't been looking much...

Since no one have replied to this...

Depends on what you are interested in. There are bunches of random topics in the Tavern, and it seems to be the most active place.

For conversing, I think the Art, Music and Writing forum as well as the Tavern are the best places. Though the gaming sections and Popular Media also holds some good topics.
World Events, Politics and Religion is a good place to discuss, but - yeah, it's more of discussing than conversing.
Some people also talk a lot in the Support and Suggestions, so... Well, in conclusion, you might find good threads in any of the forums. :P

Art, Music and Writing


I beg to differ. The Forge is the most unpopular section.
