    Wow that's an awesome idea, great reason you gave there. I think I will elect you for Prime Minister.

    Honestly... me and many others stay because of those two forums, sure we spend time in the other forums, but a bit of daily gossip keeps us going.

    Re: Dump Off Topic & Lightning Round

    OT has been here as long as I've been a member. I don't see the point in dumping that section at all. You'll get no argument from me regarding the dumping of TLR though. It started out okay but now just seems pretty pointless anymore.

    Agreed, this is a big connection to whats happening on the net for me, and around the world. And no, im not a closed individual, I watch the news and typically have my TV tuned to CNN to stay current in the world events, but this place plays a big part in it as well. The OT atleast, most of the topics in TLR are only good for reading the primary posts.


    Name a forum that doesnt have an OT btw. (or message board, that is.)

    Dumping TLR would be like dumping the sports pages in a newspaper.
    Some people read it, some don't, but it's all part of the overall package.

    If you don't like it, don't read it.

    Re: Dump Off Topic & Lightning Round

    Prior to last years elections, TLR was really a great place to gain perspective on a wide range of topics. I have been going in there for a long time and it used to be quite enlightening.

    And then came along 1 or 2 cut and paste trolls that are still there only to get out their daily slap at people and to stir up crap with their one and only message, which has served to create alot of really bad feelings on this board.

    So unless those couple either go away, or people totally stop even taking the bait and replying to the obvious trolling, or they get banned, I dont see TLR having a positive impact here, as what is said in TLR has surely had a negative impact on a lot of members and caused undue hard feelings towards otherwise some really great members of this board.

    The loss of Vis and Snowball2 as mods should serve to show that it has become a place of endless negitivity, and they will be missed.

    Re: Dump Off Topic & Lightning Round

    There have been off topic posts and threads way before OT forum was even created, only it used to be posted in "general" forum instead. That's why OT (and later TLR) were created, to keep that kind of posts apart from the real tech-related questions and comments.

    I think OT still serves its function to this day, although I cannot really say I have had good experiences in TLR. That said, I simply don't visit there all that much anymore unless I'm ready for the heat, and that's how it was planned from the start. You don't like it, fine, there's a lot of other forums to read and post in. Other people might feel quite comfortable in there.

    I'd say, keep them both as places for people to play, chat, exercise their creativity, express their political/religious opinions, or simply vent whatever is annoying them.

    I vote to keep TLR. if we dump it, chances are those few spoillers will spill back over into OT and the rest of the forums and ruin the whole place.
