As stated in the Rules thread, in most cases, only one thread / game is allowed: the Main Thread [MT]. If a game is too popular for just one main thread, it will get its own forum section.

 

This thread deals with the entire Video Games section, including the eSports and MMO sub-forums. 

 

How to Apply

 

In order for your thread to be considered a Main Thread for a game, you need to link it here first. If it follows the guidelines mentioned below and is considered complete /  intelligible enough, you'll then get the award and your thread will be the only one (with few exceptions) allowed in relation to the game it covers.

MT Structure

  • Title - name of the game [MT] - description or catchy phrase. For example: "Diablo 3 [MT] - you promised us PvP Jay!"
  • Original Post(s) - The person starting the thread has the responsibility to offer a detailed summary of the game, together with videos, important links and anything else he sees fit. He also takes on the challenge of keeping it up-to-date, by adding or modifying the content from the original posts depending on recent news or reveals.
    • As long as he / she takes care of the topic he / she started, all the rewards listed below will be active. When a thread stops being updated, the rewards are removed and control of the thread gets passed to a moderator or to another person that's interested in doing it (if you notice an MT is not being updated or is listed as inactive and want to take it over, let me know in this thread).
    • Topics should be updated at least every two months to be considered active.  A moderator will provide a reminder within the thread should a Main Thread go for too long without update, and if no update is made within a reasonable time frame (usually another month or so), the MT will be considered inactive.
    • Here's a decent example   a great example, although there's still room for improvement.
  • Optional: please include inside the original post a link to these instructions. It could be something like this: Main Thread created in compliance with the instructions provided here.

!! Same guidelines apply for the eSports section, just replace game with player / personality / event.

 

Rewards for Main Thread starters

  • The Game Expert (or eSports Reporter) award that will appear under your avatar. Check this thread for more info on Awards (how many are there, how to receive them).
  • on the shortlist for Moderator spots.

Active Main Threads

Updated the original post with new info! Created a "How to Apply" section, inserted a few things in the "Structure" category (an example, an optional item) and updated the rewards.

Here is my MT thread on Path of Exile!

 

Good idea, was planning to start one myself if nobody else stepped up.

 

The thread needs a bit of tweaking though for it to be MT. The patch notes should definitely just be linked, or else they'll form an ugly TL;DR wall. :) You can find them on the POE forums, which seem to be down now. :D

 

Second thing, a bit more info, even taken directly from the site, about the game's main features, would be great. Like about items / skills, which make POE different from all the other RPGs out there.

 

Last but not least, add some videos or pics with game-play or at least trailers.

 

As soon as you make these changes, let me know again here and I'll update your awards.

Done, added a section about skills. Removed all the patch notes and linked to the PoE forum thread about them and added a media section with pictures and videos, I'll add more videos as time progresses :) http://titanfocus.in...xile-mt/?p=2743

I have created a MT for MewGenics, a new game by the developers of Super Meat Boy which involves playing the role of a crazy cat lady / man and looking after your cats. I immediately thought of Crumby when I saw this game :D http://titanfocus.in...other-cat-game/

 

Two MTs in 3 days?! I'm on fire :D I do love contributing to the community though :) TF is ALWAYS open on my browser :D
