    TAT Arcade?

    I'm looking at the possibility of adding a game arcade to TAT to give our community something fun and different to do. This is a big step away from the normal "tennis forum", but I'm always looking at innovative ways to set TAT apart from the others.

    At this point it's just an idea. It's a big install and I don't even know if we have the server resources to run the thing. I thought I'd get some feedback from our membership to see if this is worth looking into further. It might turn out that we don't have the necessary server resources to sustain it, but if the interest is there, I'll go for it and we'll just see what happens.

    Here's a link to some games that would be available to us:

    Re: TAT Arcade?

    I'm respectfully against this idea, Kirkus. Not rabidly so, mind you. I sure as heck won't be playing any of these game. I just don't see the point to adding on games- particularly those not tennis related. I don't believe in trying to be all things for all people- i.e., focus on what you do well, and leave it at that. I'd worry that this could draw folks who are not serious tennis fans- which, as much as we all may squabble at times, I think that we all can agree that the consistent posters are indeed serious tennis fans. I just don't think this site needs a lot of bells and whistles to keep it solid.

    I love this idea, I think it will give us TAT members something else today especially when the site is not JUMPING because there are not much tennis being played.

    I understand Nelsus' concerns but maybe we can set it up so that only TAT Members have access. I don't know maybe it's the gamer in me talking.

    If any of the games involve paszeks, I'm all for it. You know, like when the paszeks pop up on the screen and you have to pound on them with your mouse to get points? And the one who pounds the most paszeks wins...

    Just a thought...

    I vote yes, for tennis-related games. I agree that keeping things tennisy is a good idea (personally), but I disagree that the board is for the serious tennis fan only. Anyone with an interest in the game is welcome, right? Why not give the simpletons something colorful and noisy to play with.

    I voted yes. I agree with what Bea said; TAT isn't ONLY for serious tennis folk; i'm pretty sure there are people that come in and read stuff every once in a while who aren't tennis-obsessed like us.

    I don't have a problem with the concept of the aracade as long as it's tennis related and doesn't harm the new popularity of mine (and Jessie's) beloved TATChat.

    But, yeah, I also agree with what Bea says about non-addicted tennis fans.

    Re: TAT Arcade?

    Just FYI... the games will NOT be tennis related. They'll be things like PacMan, Astroids, a few other games that Sebastien found for us early on like where a yeti whacks a penguin to see how far it will slide on the ice. Totally nonsensical entertainment.
