Get rid of off-topic forum?

I think most of the forums out there in forum land have an off-topic forum to catch all the gossip that doesn't fit into the gun related specific forums. If you look at the traffic that has been generated within that forum you will see it is the second most popular forum on this site! Thats a big deal for the website, in my opinion. Most people who post there also post in the gun specific forums and visa versa. It adds to the mix of posting opportunities and makes this a popular location.

If you make this a all business forum, gun talk only it may slow the growth considerably.

On the other hand you have risks in the off-topic forum that you don't have in the various gun-spicific forums. If you end up with the trouble makers that seem to jump into some of these off-topic forums at other sites it will require that you crack down a bit and set some tighter boundries. At this point everyone in that forum appears to get along great, I have not seen any arguements, or serious infractions of the rules!

If folks don't like the off-topic forum then they should pursue their interests in the revolver forum, the general gun forum, pistol forum or other topics. There is no requirment that anyone has to read the off-topic forum threads.

Has there been complaints???

No! You need someplace where people can BS a little.
I do think that we, as members here, could show a little more interest in the gun, maintence & reloading sections.

As long as we can still have non-gun related tom-foolery! That zipperzap is trouble!
THAT LITTLE SPITFIRE ... is a good judge of character!

... Nine sounds a little too much like Gretch, my first wife!!! SHE was a very good judge
of character, too ... but ... I managed to fool her for 11 years! I think 'Ninesey' is a little
sharper than THAT! Woe is me. :shock:

I vote for keeping a place where I can fly my
flag!
:cool:

I don't post on, or read, anything other than "General Discussion" forums on any of the sites I visit.

If you want me to address my posts only in specific forums, let me know.

Thanks,

Doug

I think we're all crazy, and we should just post whatever we want wherever we want. With lots of gun porn mixed in.
