2 new off topic section suggestions
« on: February 03, 2009, 08:53:23 PM »
I think one of these may have been sugested before, but nt the other (it's quarter-to-two in the mornign here, and I'm getting dangerously close to just falling asleep at my PC, so I haven't really been in any state to check).

Basically, due to the growing number fo these threads appearing, I think it's time we got an off topic RP and off topic fan fiction sections.  I've certainly contributed to both, and I have seen some toehr stuff around that'll fit in those catagories.

I'm not expecting these to be done ASAP, the content hasn't got to the level whee these are necessary yet, but I think soon more content will be coming to justify creating these.

Now, I think it may be time for me to get some sleep.  My mind is a mess (even more then usual!) and I'mnot sure how much longer I could type and make some form of sense (nice challenge though...).

I think it's too  much for a RepCom related forum...

But off-topic RP means racking up your post #. (e.g Goof of Thread)

I don't, I think this is community development. People are naturally going to end up discussing and doing non-RepCom things, better we have places set aside for that so it can stay organized and out of the way.

The RP section will be especially good because, as BlackHawk said, there are threads people will post a lot in and it'll count toward their post count, and if an on-topic RP doesn't count why should an off-topic one?

I think the whole off-topic section shouldn't count posts... And two off-topics is just too much. Btw: If you want to talk about another subject etc. etc. you should go to another forum related to that subject...

that's one thing that i have considered. but why should we care about post counts? does it make us better than others? No. So we shouldn't worry about that, i guess. the members on this forum shouldn't be racing to get to the top in the rank of post counts. we should just post. talk. give good comments. and if you don't have a lot of posts, then who cares. the quality of your posts is what counts. if you are always giving good quality posts, people will remember you. that is post count...posts that count.

I concur with most of the above posts -

Any additional or existing off-topic post areas should not count towards your post total. If that's the only reason you want them, your motivations are all wrong.

So if someone can fix that off-topic-posts don't count, we don't need another off-topic section... Problem solved, I believe.

i agree. what i dont agree with is not having the Off-Topic posts count. now, im not one of those people that all i care about is getting a high post count, but its just one of the fun little bonuses that this site has that make it all the more fun, so why take it away?
