The Off Topic Thread
« Thread started on: Jul 25th, 2006, 1:22pm »

Ok, I know that this place has a problem with people getting super off topic in threads and basically having side conversations. I'm hoping that this will help stop that problem. I'm proposing that if a thread gets more than a few posts off topic, you have to bring it here. Just quote what you were replying to in the other thread and continue the conversation here. And the rule is that if anyone calls you on it, you HAVE to do this. I don't know if Ally/other mods can physically move replies to a different thread, but that would help as well.

This would also be the place to just spout off random things that don't really deserve their own thread. And it will hopefully help keep this place neater. I hope this catches on and that people really do this.

Thanks Kelsey!!! Wonderful idea!!!

This is a start to the end of "convo, oh no"!!!

"Convo, oh no" = what everyone thinks when they scroll through pic threads and get a convo...

Yeah. Kind of, but this thread actually has a purpose. To attempt to end all of the nonsense off topic convos we seem to have a problem with. So it's up to everyone to call people out (not being bitchy about it of course) and have them bring the convo here.

so if we are online and we see people posting back and forth, we can jump in and post something like this:

Convo? oh, no!

Yeah pretty much, lol. A few posts are ok, but if it goes for more than like a page or so, then it's out of hand.

Maybe we could get this pinned?

I love this idea Kelsey. The pages and pages of random convo were really getting on my nerves. Ok, so if we see any it's just straight away

Oh no, convo!!!
(linkies to this thread)

I think this should get pinned, because toherwose all the other threads just get full of random crap

My turn to be offtopic, coz you can do that here: WHY did my mum make so much broccoli today and not enough carrots? It really anoyed me. Not a good broccoli to carrot ratio at all.

LOL @ Breen .. yeah, that sounds really annyoing. Even though I don't eat broccoli, cuz I hate it LOL .. Nice idea, Kelsey. I think this thread will be very handy indeed. And I know this goes aspecially for me since I tend to get very off topic at some certain threads .. So, I apologize! lol And BTW: I think I might say "Convo alert!" if I see any victims.

I have to say that I prefer broccoli to carrots. I don't like orange or red vegetables.

I think this is a good idea, speaking as someone who gets sidetracked very easily bcause I find you all so interesting!!! I do get very sidetracked at work too (usually by IHJ.... )

What a great thread.

Today was a good day. I was done with my work in 20 minutes (if you don't count the commuting) 'cause I managed to drive so that I the engine didn't die even once! Hurray for that. I was so happy that I spent 25 euros to cd's (although it cost me two day's pay and I'll be probably starving in September when I move to my own apartment, but nevermind. New music! ). I also got new clothes the other day which is another reason to celebrate. The heatwave has returned here after it thundered and rained a bit yesterday so I get to sunbathe again. <3 It was also a good day tv-wise (my mum probably disagrees, she says I spent too much time watching tv); I watched already Everwood, some John Cleese movie, O.C. and in a minute, will go and watch Sex and the City. Oh, and I have a day off from work tomorrow.

That was my random babbling of the day.

Broccoli is good, just not the flowery bit. Carrots are better.

Anyways I just got to say how NAUGHTY all of you elder gyllenhaalics are for coming on ihj at work!! Sneaky sneaky!! So far I know sarolabelle, kate and hot4jake go on at work. It always makes me laugh when I can see your names at the bottom and I know you're at work...haha!!

Great thread Kelsey. It really does annoy me all the off topic convos in threads. It seems to happen alot in eye candy!! I agree though, it should be pinned.
