The description says as followed
A PLACE FOR FUN & GAMES, AT THE EDGE OF THE FORUM!


I don't understand to be honest. What games do people play on a forum? Or why is it called that? I see lots of topics there that range from very uncommon to just sharing opinions. So i just really have trouble understanding. If i was to create a topic here what would fit into there that the other categories don't cover. :unsure:

It's a place where you can shitpost and derail threads without getting warns.
It used to be a testing area some years ago.

The games that are played are forum games.
I'd say scroll through some and see how it's played.

I think the old name of "Testing grounds" explained it much better.

General Off-topic chat = stuff that is not pertinent to any actual subforum or topic but still wants to be discussed. It's general, it's off-topic, and it's chat.

The Edge of the Forum = SUPER OFF-TOPIC CHAT.
Sadly though, some people use it as a shitposting dumpster, aka /b/ and all the relative shit forums.

It's basically made to be a slightly more controlled /b board. It's made for a mix of testing new features as well for people to just shitpost in a controlled location. It's really made to be pointless, but a controlled pointless place.

    I was asked to leave a casino in Vegas years ago, because somebody asked me for change for $20 and I made change for them. The casino claimed it was against they're rules and I had to leave. I feel Karma got them back cause the casino was torn down couple years ago.
