A General Discussion Thread

Post by Rhino.Freak on May 21st 2013, 9:20 am

Why don't we have a thread for some random general discussion that may or maynot be related to forums? like just.. talking area.. one topic where we can talk freely about anything! (must be in rules though)

this is a large place and without chatbox, I think there should be one topic for general discussion..

Forumotion used to have a General Discussion area but it was re-named Forum Discussion as it began to have so much off topic threads such as Happy Birthday threads and other various things like that.

It would be nice to have a subforum for off topic talk but considering this is a support forum for help and support using forums itself it probably isn't needed given the nature of this forum.

I'll reserve my judgement on this matter as I'm split two ways.

Well most forum do have an off topic or general discussion section.Though I think this has already been suggested on another thread and rejected by the staff here.

I'll say ya,but this is a support forum. It might be a mess and many users won't get help is everyone chit chats and slack off. I do would love to talk about anything like a 2 minute break you know. Maybe limited to 1 topic and 5 posts per day in the off topic discussion.

The problem with only one thread would be that it would generally be very chaotic inside that thread. I like the idea of a General Discussion section but honestly this is a support forum so I don't see the great need for it.

Sorry, but we won't be adding such a thread as it becomes nothing but a spamming thread. When you would create a general discussion thread, it will nothing but let users ask questions about their forum or even random stuff.

We are a support forum & not a forum to gather a lot of users.
