While I too wish the site were a little more liberal on what is allowed on the forum, it is meant to be family friendly and to encourage local community, not discourage it by talking down about groups of people.  The way the conversation was going could potentially keep female gamers who stalk the forum from contributing or becoming more active in the community because they would think that people associated with okgamers think poorly of female gaming.

Interesting as it may to see female gamers contribute to the conversation to give their input, the conversation overall was counter productive.

She's my roommate.  I troll her because she lives in my spare bedroom, making weird animal noises.

Not so much the controversy but the bashing of females capabilities in playing games is what killed the thread.  went from the curiosity of what caused the small population of female gamers to gain interest in gaming (legitimate topic) to Omg, girls suck at gaming, el oh el (not ok on this forum).

Hope that clears it up.

This whole conversation has become stupid.  The girls who are sponsored to sell product are not sponsored gamers.  They rarely play in tournaments, they're just pitch-people.  Yes, sex sells, especially in the sweaty nerd groups like gamers. 

When it comes down to it, yes, ratios/percentages matter.  We all know that the gaming industry is dominated by adolescent to early adult males.  We also know that of those who do play, only 1% are even skilled enough to play on a national level.  So take the number of girls who do play, factor in the small percentage of an already small number who put in the time to gain the potential, and that number will be super small.  Its math.  Its not that Good/competitive gamer chicks don't exist, its just the number isn't as high as guy gamers would like.

♥♥♥♥♥, we have a local female gamer who was/is sponsored for her ability, not her looks, and she'd probably body anybody on this forum who plays her game of the month.

I hear bipolar is a gateway gamer.  If you can get with her, you can get with any gamer chick!

There is an active amtgard park in tulsa that meets on saturdays.  It's like dag.  There is also an active sca group if you are into hardcore fighting.

Yeah, sorry man, I've done fighters offline for so long that there is a degree of expectation that has to be met if I'm to play online, and unfortunately there hasn't been a single fighter made so far that has made a netcode for its game that is remotely playable by offline standards =[

I won't speak for everyone, but fighting games have horrible netcode, making them quite frustrating and not terribly fun to play online if you are an offline fighter like many of the people on here who play fighting games.  Your best bet is to try to con people into playing at your house. Offer cheap puzza or something.  If that doesn't work, go to mortalkombatunited.com.  that is the major online community for mk9.  Testyourmight.com is the major offline site.  Good luck.

The paragraphs express our daily and weekly recruiting efforts we did over the span of several months.  If we were still using the same amount of effort into recruiting as we did responding to your naive responses, we'd still have 3 people.  There is no right formula or algorithm in recruiting people if the people don't have interest.  Just because something works in okc doesn't mean it will work else where.  Historically I've found interest in ANYTHING to be regional.  Somethings are just more .popular in some areas more than others.  We just have the unfortunate luck of being in a region that its not popular in.

It is what it is.  Deal with it.u
