Last year I’ve observed a trend towards even more off-topic chats on the forum and while we do delete some of them several people complain that the forum is devolving into a place for chats without a clear goal.
I think it’s better a little late than never, so I’m calling to refocus our community on gaming and banish topics that are just off-topic chats.
It is still allowed to talk about non-gaming stuff in the general category but as a rule, if a non-gaming topic doesn’t enable a constructive conversation, it will be deleted.
Hopefully this will clean up the forum and make it a more attractive place for everyone.
I think that part of the problem is that at this point we barely have anything to talk about. We have gone 2 years without any news and have nothing to be excited about at this point. We already know how GDT works, we already know how good we all are, we already know each other’s favourite games… we pretty much have done everything we can at this point and then the forum ends up as becoming off-topic. I’m sure that releasing at least some news, or giving us some small updates over a certain span of time would help the forum more with becoming more game-related than removing topics will. That’s just my personal opinion.
