Designed for diversions of the non-productive sort, Games is one of the busiest forums in the off season, and typically has a higher post count than any other forum. In 2008, it was singlehandedly responsible for crashing the entire website when some of the longer threads reached a point where the indexing crashed the database. Because of this, the policy of locking posts of over 500 comments was instituted as a result of this crash.
