OFPEC should have a junk thread.. misc thread to solve this then.
Otherwise, if i was a MOD/admin or part of staff. I would consider this topic locked.
The idea of an 'Off-topic' board has been suggested more times than I can recall, and each time the answer has been a well-justified "No".
Why? All you need do is look around a forum that has one, and witness the pointless flame wars that spill out of the 'Off-Topic' area into the other forum boards.
We've done off-topic in the past (POLWAR, for those that remember it) and it was a disaster in respect to keep the forums a tidy, happy and constructive place.
Flame wars have no place in OFPEC, and 'Off-Topic' boards are the breeding ground of flamers...
im glad you locked my topic on "not enough american vehicles".
why did a small hamless topic turn into a bloody all out political throwing match.
it was like a day at parlament house in australia(where im form)
Tim(shakes his head in disbelief)
We used to have a 'Politics & Warfare' board, but we (wisely) closed that after it proved to be more trouble than it was ever worth...
Unfortunatey in todays environment, it doesn't take much at all to spark a flame-war. From there, all it takes is just one person to continually not heed a Staff members warning, and it falls apart right there and has to be locked down.
hmmm... yeah, GREAT idea
(sarcasm) - if i had a Â£1 for every time this was suggested, and then quickly shot in the head by Sefe or Noon, i'd, well... have some money
What makes you think Sefe & I wouldn't extort that profit out of you?
Sefe's got the legal know-how to make the threat work, and I've got the ..... errr ...... cookies. ;D
