OT: no more off topics?

Prev1
Is it true?

PM a mod. I'm not sure exactly what they are doing anymore.

    I think the idea is to post in the off topic thread stickied.
    Personally I don't see that working as (I for one) never check the stickies unless I need something (walkthrough). Also it would mean wading through pages and pages of uncorresponding posts, even if they are all OT at least before you could pick or choose what you read

    I didn't even see the sticky . :( lame , there are more efficient ways to organize the forum versus banning freedom of speech.....

    Why can't they just ban those ❤️❤️❤️❤️ attention-seeking threads but still keep the good OT threads like for video games and sports?

    I agree. I don't understand why they don't just make a off topic sub forum.

    It's quieter around here no question. However I say it's a breath of fresh air not seeing goodbye / I'm back, post milestone and absent threads. The OT game threads could have been left alone to continue though.

    The goodbye threads were stupidity at its finest. Same with post milestones.

    At least those 2 are about the game. Not someone's status on the forum. This is a game forum not facebook

    I agree but do we really need that many threads about the same 2 topics. It makes other threads get lost easily

    OT threads are really what keep the forum alive. They keep activity up between updates. OT threads should stay. Everything a noob needs is already "stickied" at the top. (Edit: Except for the OT sticky :P )

    Just sayin.

    This is Forum Moderation 101.

    No OT threads = on topic threads that get distracted by OT stuff because there's nowhere to post it.

    Or, the other common result... forum dies when the people who keep it intetresting pick another website with a less communistic approach.

    I learned this in 1995. So will these mods.

    And timing sucks... since I can't log on to my town, I guess this forum is useless now.

    I'm not attached to the place, just the people and fun. If the fun crowd moves elsewhere, please let us know. I hear Spansers site has a forum now.
