It does seem a bit more exclusive than it should be, though. Maybe if you've been here long enough to join a clan but choose not to do so, you could request to see the Temple of Light and Dark? I don't see any harm in that. It prevents the main visible forums from being cluttered with spam and people who choose not to join a clan (or have sworn them off, like Blizz) can still play dumb little forum games if they want.
I don't see why this isn't being considered. Seriously, who gives a ♥♥♥♥ if he joins a clan.
Vulpes, I just want to say that your anti-establishment position will bite you in the ass one day. While being a proponent of freedom is generally a good thing, there are times when conformity will have the more favorable result for you. Such as regarding this.
ZU is the only forum I know of that doesn't have a Forum Games section. Occasional games happen in CC, but not that many.
Such a forum would house games like "rate the avatar/signature/username above me" and "what the avatar/signature/username above me is thinking" and things like hurt 'n' heals.
It might work best as a subforum of CC.

The rules of the Temple are pretty much "ask for approval on games before posting the thread" but a lot of people ignore that. People need to PM either me, Sturs or DD123 about it. There are other rules and limitations for threads there, but I'll outline them better when I have time next week to make a thread about it like I've been planning to do for a few months now.
The best way to get a thread approved more quickly is to demonstrate that the game will promote community orientated teamwork stuff. Anything that would effectively bring people together rather than hit n' run posting is insta +1 in my books.

Allowing anyone to enter the Temple, though, would ruin the sanctity.
I have no sympathy towards people who leave their clan on a whim and regret it later. Nothing against Blizz and all, but he had the option to ignore his clan and post in the temple but chose to leave it.

The clans were also for the ZRPG but that changed. Why do forum games have anything to do with clans? Any of the clans can see them, and anyone with 50 posts who has been here for a month can join a clan. Why not just cut out the middle man and allow anyone with 50 posts who's been here for a month see the Temple?
It just doesn't make sense. I don't see why anyone cares. There would be literally no downside, unless him not posting in a clan board is one. The only effort anyone will have to go through is saying that it can be done. From then it's just like being PMed for a clan test, but without the clan test.
