    Default Should we install an Arcade?

    I'm looking for more features to add to the forum, and one that has proven very popular at MartialTalk is the arcade.


    So....Should we install an Arcade?

    I voted no, all the membes of this site are members of MT, and if they want to play games they can do that there.

    There is one on MT, but this is a different arcade system, more features, more games (I think 3,000 last count). There are currently a few folks here who aren't members of MT, and I can see the day when the 2 sites are very seperate communities.

    What, if anything, is it going to do to the server load?
    If negligible - Then Go for it

    But only if it has Mahjong..

    and stuff like bejeweled

    Put the games in. If you want paid subscribers, you have to make it worth their effort to donate. There has to be a few perks.

    I am with Tess. It is a bandwidth/cost benefit analysis for me.

    The bandwidth hit on MT from the arcade has been acceptable, and I think it will be the same here as well. I mean if 20 people sign up each month just to play games, that'll cover a low-end dedicated server...and it took MT almost 4 years to hit that level of demand. I figure, even if we grow like crazy (and I hope we do), it'll still be a year at least before we hit MT's size.
