A suggestion for increasing participation on the forums

I have a suggestion to help increase the participation here on the forums. Every one of us usual (or unusual, in some cases...) posters should send an in-game universal message at the start of every game. Something along these lines:

Thank you for joining the game!

I highly recommend that you take a look
at the Circus Maximus forums at:
http://www.circus-maximus.com/forums/index.php
You can find answers to almost any
question, from the most basic to very
advanced.

Not to mention you can publicly taunt your enemies!

How does that sound? I'm off to send it for Pole Star now...

Is there another forum going somewhere else about this same topic? I remember posting at least two posting about this topic and I believe Shardin also posted?

Your post officially doesn't count for points! (But mine does, since I didn't say... that phrase.)

Of course!
Role playing and historical banter can really liven up a game.

I disagree. Just because you didn't say the words, you referred to the medical name of the item that it had a color. In another words, you can call a rose by another name but it is still a rose. That would mean you lose that point and you should lose two more points for trying to BS us.

I have to agree. Even though he rephrased it, it counts. No point for him.
