You need at least four pages to publish a storygame... Is it just me or should that be a bit higher? Imagine someone posting a four page story, that would just be a waste of time, and it would be removed anyways (probably.)
I think it should be higher then just four pages for a minimum, it should be more like, ten pages at the very least. But mabye that's just me.
I'd be for a 20 page minimum.
That sounds reasonable.
Well, bad storygames are typically longer than 10 pages anyway. The terrible ones typically have less. A ten page or twenty page minimum may cause the person to consider writing it longer ir repel then from it. Like, "I hafta write THIS much? Alright... screw dis I'm quitting."
If they aren't willing to write a meaningful and average length story, then I don't think they should be writing at all.
They shouldn't. But who's stopping them? There isn't a foolproof way to do so yet.
I see. I'd make an estimation of 65? That's a nice round number, isn't it?
I'd say that's a bit too large.
Think of it this way, Zag...the great WC invasion contributed over that amount of 1 click storygames.
The "remove all storygames that are rated 2/8" unpublished around 500ish(?) storygames.
Is my number really that high when you think of it that way?
I think Seto's is closer. xD
Sounds like a good idea
Then blank pages can not be allowed.
Of course, that can be avoided by putting a single letter in each page, but by that point I think most people would've quit.
Oh, I forgot about scripting. Disregard that suggestion, then.
lol not wurf it
I say quality writing is worth more then a few points.
^ set higher minimum! Set higher minimum! *pumps fist into air* xD
Definitely not worth it. Implement this!!
I like this idea as well. I'm not too sure on what would be a suitable minimum however, but twenty seems to be the preferred choice in this thread, so maybe that.
I agree that raising the minimum page count is a way to reduce the amount of low-effort stories. However, I'm wondering if this wouldn't also make games with low page-counts, but high quality, like certain puzzle games that are published, impossible to create anymore. Also, if someone wanted to write a troll story, couldn't they just add some pages with little/no text to get above the page limit?
Maybe it's an idea to implement a minimum word requirement instead?
that might run into the same problem, it would be easy for a troll to simply copy and paste a bunch of words or type a word like "a" over and over again until they reach the minimum.
Those games will unarguably be deleted then. Hopefully. I have a 10-page quiz, and I don't think it's terrible. Okay, it's not that good. :S But quizzes would run into a problem like this - debatable page and word counts.
