Its not allowed to open topics in "Games-Discussion"-subforum. No "normal" user can do that. The reason for that is, that in this subforum should be only one thread per reviewed game on the main page, so you can find every information and discussion about a game in one thread. Not to mention the fact, that after a short time the forum would be bursting with one-post-threads like "Game XYZ is so cool!!!!", if everybody could open new topics.

If you want to talk about a game that already has a review, please post in the appropriate thread. If you want to talk about a game, which isnt reviewed or which isnt abandonware, in most cases the "Favorite oldies and newbies"-subforum is the place to do so. k:

To restate, only updaters can make new threads in that forum. It is only for threads for games that are on Abandonia.

Ok, point taken, no problem
I agree to all the arguments given, makes sense...

And for future newbies, is that info available somewhere else?
Some pinned 'rules' post, or something ?
I looked, and though it's probably just me, I could not find any relevant info on posting.

oh well, at least I know now...

We only have the forum descriptions, which should be enough, really.

Quote:
Abandonia games discussion
In this section you can look up comments, hints and / or problems about all games on Abandonia.[/b]
So, if the game is on the site, it will have a topic for you to use here. If it isn't on the site, this forum would be inappropriate to use.

Quote:
Favorite oldies and newbies
That is new games not new users.[/b]
Maybe a bit unclear, but as the details claim that this forum is about favourite games (and not members), this is the forum of choice for game topics where you debate all and any games not featured on the site.

True, but perhaps the forum description could be made clearer to state the special rules for this forum. Ater all, if a game hasn't been discussed recently, people might still want to create a new thread, after hearing that resurrection of old topics is generally frowned upon. Perhaps it's better to add something like "Users can't create threads here, a specific thread is automatically created for each game featured on Abandonia".
