As it was so graciously called. One of the oldest game threads we had, we were in the first season and people began to lose interest in it. Eventually only one or two people were posting in it and people got tired of constantly clicking on it just to get rid of the "new post" thing. So a bunch of us (including myself) banded together and Mskate locked the thread (she'd been debating it because people had complained prior to)
Allow me to share with you some posts before I get into the description and rules of the game.
this was MSkate's very last post, the final post of the thread:
"Thanks for the input everyone...I think at the very least, this thread needs a break. Maybe when the second season starts, interest in genuine "spin-offs" will be revitalized, and this thread can be put to good use."
I thought about talking with her to unlock the thread but I figured, most of you won't want to go through all 205 pages. May as well begin anew. I figured with 4 new seasons, several new characters, and a new "generation" of people in this forum, her statement would ring true and you guys could have some fun with this. Hopefully, I don't know, I was one of the users that didn't find anything interesting about it. Maybe things will be different this time? Maybe you guys will breathe new life? Who knows.
Very last page of the thread, we put it to its death V_V: http://www.tv.com/shows/icarly/forums/ispin-make-an-icarly-spinoff-85277-944721/?page=204
Early beginnings, you should take a look at the first 3 pages at least to see how it worked, but it shouldn't be hard to figure out.: http://www.tv.com/shows/icarly/forums/ispin-make-an-icarly-spinoff-85277-944721/?page=0
Now you don't have to click those links, I'll just tell you this was created by yugaton88 (and the memories), truly it was a forgotten gem. If you see the page after the last, you'll see the same person "Lisa2758" posting 7 times in a row...a true sign that no one was using the thread at that time.
Rules as done by Yugaton:
Make a spinoff and episodes to your spinoff.
No changing the plot.
No offensive language.
No mocking other user's ideas.
Have fun and be creative.
Added rules by MSkate:
Reposting the rules, with a new addition:
1. Keep your spinoffs rated PG or under.
2. No off-topic spinoffs. This is an iCarly forum, and iCarly only.
3. Keep your font small for easier reading. All threads written in large fonts will be deleted.
4. EDIT: Perhaps most important of all, no plagiarism of others' spinoffs. Plagiarism is an offense that TV.com takes very seriously (meaning being suspended or banned).
5. No spamming of this (or any other) thread, i.e. posting repeatedly to ask if anyone's here. It's a TOS violation. This is not a live chat.
I'll add to this as needed.
Frankly you add an episode to the spin off as a while, while keeping the same spin off. Like maybe what's the spinoff, what's the pilot episode. Give it a couple posts so others can post theirs and comment on yours. post episode two comment on others, etc etc.
Go ahead, give it a try. Honestly this can be buried or played with, but I just figured you know, new generation of people, being you, might actually be remotely interested in the concept after all this time. I think I was going to do an "Army Days" spin off, but I never did.
