Hi everyone! I thought of this game a while ago, but I wasn't sure if something similar already existed. I've looked and it seems like it doesn't? But please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong and remove this if it's too much like another game/thread. So, the full name of the game is "I like _____, what would you recommend"? I love experiencing new things and giving people the chance to do that too.
It's pretty simple.
Person A leaves a like and asks for a recommendation. (ex: "I like indie horror movies, WWYR?").
Person B gives the recommendation (Ex: "You might like [insert movie title here]!). Person B then leaves something they like to be answered by person C and so on. You get the idea!
Keeping the likes simple and the answers relatively short seems like a good idea to me. I think it would also be helpful to avoid potentially common answers. If someone asked for a fantasy book rec then it's unlikely that they don't already know about A Song of Ice and Fire or LoTR. Of course, you can't always predict what another person does or doesn't know, so don't get too stressed out about it.
I like podcasts, WWYR?

Oooh Thor , I really like that, thanks! The last two play-throughs I did, I used Warrior cat-esque names, then double animal noises (like cawcaw or moomoo). You could also try chemical elements, icecream flavours, anime characters (or whatever TV you're into), or famous actors would be amusing

Have you tried Knight Rider before? The original from the 80s, not the 2010s remake, or Team Knight Rider (never seen it though).
If you don't mind cartoons: Swat Katz is awesome, as is Reboot (Disclamer: It ends in something of a clifhanger if I remember right). I'm trying for older more obscure stuff as you've probably seen the main stream stuff.
Also Books. DragonSong, DragonSinger. By Anne McCaffery.

I think if you like DragonSong/DragonSinger, the Inheritence Cycle by Chrish Paolini or Howl's Moving Castle (the first one) by Diana Wynne Jones may be a fun place to go...? I'll admit I had not even heard of DragonSong/DragonSinger before, but I'm interested and want to read it! I've been meaning to read more fantasy.
A really good reader's advisory tool is NoveList, and access is usually included with a library card ^^.
inkpaw: just joined, hi everyone! c: it's really cool to see the petz community still strong here

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha

Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.

Alex@Marvel: So I decided after (I don't even know how many) years of Gotham being my prefix, it's now Marvel. ^^ I felt like it was time for a rebranding.
