    It's the site ##########.com, which is a guy porn site that spun off EC when it got a lot of people under the age of 18 signing up for it.

    ### of course is the revenue stream so obviously gets the priority. EC doesn't make them any money and actually costs them money (mostly on the Google advertising), so we only get use of ### programmers etc when they have nothing to do on ###, which is rare.

    Because of the adult content, ### are legally obliged to ban anyone under the age of 18 and indeed go to some effort to detect such people. Because of the lack of decent sites for under 18s, EC was created.

    An arcade.

    But I doubt the owners of ### would allow us the bandwith.

    Actually that arcade game sounds really fun. I dont know how it would be done (damn my lack of internet skills) but being able battle each other on simple games like pong or chess would be really fun. In fact, we could have like Pong tournaments and get a grand champion. I know it would probably be difficult to do, but it would be quite fun

    ### used to have the arcade games add-on for vBulletin but had to remove it due to copyright issues affecting many of the games. It would certainly be good if it could be done legally, though.

    There is no legal issues if you use games that are free. >_>

    Most of the games in the vBulletin Arcade add-on that was at ### were based on and named after early arcade games from major publishers (things like "Space Invaders", "Asteroids" and "Pac Man"), without the appropriate permission, acknowledgement and royalties etc. So they were illegal and had to be removed.

    i think it would be cool to add a whole section dedicated to poetry, short stories, art, photograpghy, ect. that way all the creative people here would have somewhere to post it instead of some thread that is practically dead. if everyone could easily post in that section than it would be very popular.

    Sections are normally added when there is a clear need from the number of threads on the site that would belong in a new section. I have not noticed that many recent threads that would belong in the section suggested so far.

    thats because none of the other sections say anything about posting art and stuff. so people feel its irrelevant to the section. they just made a thread about how artistic everyone is. if we had the section i'm sure it would be used.

    There been no posts in this thread http://emptyclosets.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1374 (which is specifically for poetry and short stories) since 12th December, and on average it has had less than two posts a day in it during its life.

    Then there is this thread http://emptyclosets.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4274 for photography which lasted just over a month with about 2 posts per day.

    If people were interested these threads would have had a lot more activity and wouldn't have fizzled out. With this evidence I cannot see how a whole section for these subjects will get much use.

    On Full Spectrum we are willing to publish that content. We are not a forum (that's EC's function) but we can, and will, publish art content. In fact we are going to publish some photos and artwork from EC members on version 1.0.

    I think what Morgan's saying is "if you build it, they will come," which seems reasonable. Sometimes you have to let people know you are open to certain things before they will start to happen. Look at the Anonymous section.
