There, Bg. Shmackdown by a female. Ouch :evil:

Hey, but this isn't getting off-topic on the off-topic already?
Say Gk, do you need help with the redox reaction?

Naa...I'm fine ;) I know how to do it well. Plus my teacher loves me, and that's always a plus.

>Bg (yes, I'm using > for quotes in the tradition of Ryos...after all, someone needs to keep this up)
It's better to be safe than sorry....

i dont read a lot of the threads myself. who knows..
Did you read page 44 of the "A lonely night" thread? Ryos posted a real nice summary of that thread... And it wouldn't be as good if it hadn't gone off topic on the first few pages...

Gk, I'm feeling a bit sufocated here in this forum. Sandie didn't said that she will start the spamming hunt as she stated but yet, there's no reason for me to stay here anymore. I feel very sad that Ryos left, and I'll leave too...

PS.: If you still want to find me, I'm gone to PSXfanatics forum... hope that there I can say what I want, When I want....

PS2.: If this board change it's policy, maybe I'll comeback.

Glad to hear you feel this way, but who knows the future...
I don't think I can restrain myself (Or if I should), but don't close my account yet. As I said, who knows the future. Fou-lu out.

Ow, forget my real name, we're all wackos here anyway...

Please point the finger at the right person here ... It is not totaly Sandies fault that the threads were closed, she was not trying to make people mad or trying to go above anyone. She was just trying to do what was asked of her, and that was to clean up the off topic forum. She didn't realize it would cause so much trouble, believe me if she did she wouldn't have done it ... anyways this should atleast give you a hint as to what Bobbi thought about the off topic forum

<Bobbi> there're many out of control threads ...
<Bobbi> I think many are that obvious, that they can be closed right away :)
We also have to remember this is still Bobbi's board, but Ryos told me .. the fun stuff is the reason people come here, and once the fun is gone so are the people. Hopefully Bobbi will see this and see maybe it is best to leave the off topic forum the way it is.

Like I said Sandie was just doing what she felt was right, and was asked to do by Bobbi, some things got missunderstood and a lot of people lacked the information to form a reason for the closed topics. Hope this sheds some light on the subject .... also now Sandie is gone from the boards as well because of all the crap. A lot of communication is lacking here at the boards, maybe all of us (admins) need to get together and decide what the basics are so we are all on the same page. Two people who I enjoy and are good people have left because of this ... there is an obvious problem that needs some attention soon.

Let's see what the off-topic forum is for, and I quote:

Anything and everything goes here, but use common sense folks, and conduct yourselves appropriately
Ambiguous? Very.... what's "appropriate?" Seems like we're all on different pages on this one.

On one hand, there's the "off-topic thread" where "anything and everything goes".... so why is it that when an off-topic thread goes off-topic, it needs to be closed? Is it not "appropriate?" Again, what is appropriate?

But on the other hand, I could see where the concern is coming from... sever/board stability and load(wasn't there a thread with 250k+ posts that crashed the boards before?)

So... what do we do now? I'm not sure.... probably we all could start by taking things less seriously.... I mean, we're all doing this for fun right? Why put unecessary pressure to ourselves and everyone else on this board for that matter?

PS Pardon my pointless rant.... I want to express my opinion on this matter, but I'm definitely not known as a person that gets his point across in a charming and elegant way :p

There are already 2, maybe 3 casualties from this war, and the last thing I want to see is more people leaving....

Closing threads in the off-topic forum because they're off-topic is 1) foolish 2) useless and 3) denies the whole point of the existence of the forum in the first place. The only feasible reasons I could see a thread being closed in this forum for is if it violates one of the board rules or it's become so big that it threatens server stability.

The off-topic forum exists for people to chat and ramble. That's why it's called off-topic.

Doesn't matter anymore anyways .. we are solving the issues now so this will not occure again. Of course this could mean stricter rules .. more guidelines .. or could mean the same as was before.

I think we lose topic.
Off-topic mean we can say talk everything but not mean we can spam reason for close topic is not because it off-topic becuase of spam I think.That my opinion.
