I ask because we are nominally a(n) RPG forum, and there are things I'm not sure whether to post in MPSIMS or the real parts of the forum

Table-Top Wargames?
MMOs?
Single player online "RPG"s (like Kingdom of loathing, and forumWarz)?
Upcoming gaming related event's (conventions) ?

As far as I can reckon, pretty much any kind of RPG where the players (as in DM and PCs) explicitly choose the direction and unfolding of the game gets used In My Humble Opinion. Also IMHO also gets used to discuss campaign and setting building and also design philosophy--though these elements don't have to relate specifically to the kinds of games I discussed before.

Your freedom to add and change rules in the middle of the game is in direct conflict with my ability to understand that rules system before I decided whether or not to join your game.

In short, your entire post is dismissive of not merely my intelligence, but my agency. And I don't mean agency as a player within one of your games, I mean my agency as a person. You do not want me to be informed when I make the fundamental decisions of deciding whether to join your game or buying your rules system.

Discussions of specific real world events are usually in MPSIMS. Sometimes there are discussions of table top games and computer games in IMHO, but that's mostly from a systemic point of view.

I am okay with MMOs, single player computer games, and table top war games being discussed in IMHO.

Upcoming convention notices go in MPSIMS.
