Sometime back we had a discussion in which people wanted to have freedom to open and discuss stuff in general chatter, which was earlier being locked. We had a healthy discussion and it was decided that we can have decent threads which might not be related to gaming.
Off late we have observed that members have been opening threads which are not only nonsense, but even end up defying the law of gravity. Like " Write Your name hanging upside down tied to a fan" or "Do you sing while Sleeping" or "Did your dog poop in the balcony or on your head" and other ridiculous stuff. Where in we do appreciate the enthusiasm to create a new thread, we need to understand that not everything need to be discussed and what we discuss it should at least be vaguely near gaming.
We have threads like "anything goes thread" and people can actually post anything there and that is fine, we don't care, but having threads for every such stupid discussion is not a great idea, and leaves a bad impression on new members, who might think that we are not too serious about gaming, and more serious about knowing "Whose dog popped the most in a day".
We are not changing any rules, nor are we enforcing anything new, this is just a request to be a little sensible while opening new threads, and hence forth if we think that some thread is absolutely crap and not required we would be closing them.
We are open to discussion please feel free to discuss here.
PS: The threads name above are imaginary and any resemblance to any thread open or locked, is purely coincidental.
For discussions on topics that don't warrant their own dedicated threads, you can use the Anything Goes thread.
