not pointing any one particular discussion, we don't talk about fight club after all  but there was one very mild but amusing thread got locked when it could have been moved  It was closed for being non productive but actually it was good natured and friendly, Personally I think on this board that is actually Productive to see people from various clans chatting in a friendly fashion.  However...  Not my choice,  But may I remind mods that closing a thread isn't the only option.   it could have been moved to off topic where I sometimes end up finding my threads.    It was "off topic" rather than non-productive.

I think that’s it’s a hard balance to get right as to when an OT thread should just be closed or moved. If the forum was self-policing the moderation can be a bit more light touch in these areas. Unfortunately I don’t feel that is this forum. How is a mod. going to decide which threads to let slide and which ones not, how many posters are just going to take advantage to post any old thing knowing there is no sanction.

 

To take a comparison, there was several years a YT’er who used to posts links in the Gameplay section for the purposes of self promotion. If it’s ok for them to do it why not anyone else?

Well said. Let the brats make their own way in life. Do them good. Build their character and all that.

I worked hard for my kids inheritance and I am not going to waste it on them.

Had a cousin who said to his parents, about 30 years ago. All this will be mine, meaning house etc, when you are gone....

Any chance of having it now?

Still makes me chuckle when I remember it.

Let’s not give the mods a reason to close the thread surely?

I am hoping this is one area the community/volunteer mods will be able to make an improvement.

 

I don't see an issue with off topic or even non-topic threads as long as they stay friendly, and we do have an off topic section.
