There's been a lot of people saying we should have an off-topic section here. I'm kind of against the idea because I want to keep this as focused as possible and avoid the whole deal where people just come for the random discussions, but what do you guys think?

There probably won't be a difference in the amount of on-topic posting that happens if/when we create our off-topic section.

And we can't be all business here. Gotta let us unwind occasionally, man. What happens if we start this thing and all of a sudden a lot of people like it? Do we open the forum to them? What if they don't want to participate in on-topic discussion all the time? Questions and statements like that point to setting up a "shenanigans" section.

Also, if you can't keep people from getting off-topic, instead of going against the flow, the best course of action is to give them a place to channel all that excess energy.

Well, I'd assumed that if we opened the forum to other people, we'd have to make a non-player section anyway.

And people not being on topic hasn't really been a problem here at all except for in a particular case.

Yeah, but it's fun to have a silly fun-time sub-forum. Just share amongst ourselves. Y'know? Like a random/general discussion subform.

*sigh* Okay, okay....

Who let Nic Cage into SBoard, and how has he managed to masquerade as TDLBallistic all this time without anyone noticing?

What case? It's a good idea. If we're channeling this energy somewhere else, it leaves more room in the on-topic...topics for on-topic things to happen.

In other news, all work and no play blah blah blah

The case of "You can't post off topic replys in an off topic section".
