With the big change to the forums being the addition of Trust Levels the nature of the forums has changed and new trends have popped up.
One of the things that has been big is Off-topic conversations.
While sometimes the nature of a conversation evolves we have to try and stick to the topic as best we can and think about our posts before we hit "reply".
@Hanna_Brassheart and @Nora_Wrenchfizz1 have been doing a great job of trying to keep people on topic but I have seen times that they have said it multiple times in a thread which must be tiring!
So I am thinking that we might have to be a little harder on off-topic conversations after it has been mentioned already to keep on topic. What I mean when I say "harder on off-topic conversations" is that we may have to start deleting off-topic conversations to try and keep the thread clean and easy to read.
While we aren't trying to stop you from talking about things, we want the topics to stay on the topic they were created for so they are easy to read. For instance, if I ask a question about how to defeat Bucktooth I would want to read replies about fighting him and what I can make/use to beat him fast, it would be a lot harder to get that information if in the same topic someone was having a conversation about how to make the best chip and dip.
If you have a thought that is off-topic, you can "@" someone to a topic that is relevant to your thought or create a new topic and "@" that person. Alternatively, Random Anything is a great topic to have general conversations.
