A new section has been added to the off-topic sector called "Fun & Games". You can play fancy word games in there (like the ones we all remember from the old mayhem, 1,000,000 thread for the win.).
The post count is off so spam all you want in there. If I notice a thread like, say, last movie you saw or something like that is getting spammy, I will move it in there. So try to keep your posts outside this section meaningful.
Also, if your post count has gone down, it's because we moved certain threads into that section.
