Off topic chit chat

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

We're bringing back the 'off topic' thread however there are a few things we want to make sure are clear

  • Ensure a friendly atmosphere to our visitors and forum members.
  • "Don't be a dick" - Wil Wheaton.
  • "Be excellent to each other" - Bill and Ted.
  • Remember your audience; both present and future.
  • Don't make us lock this one because someone got carried away with the porn.

Based Windspeed, what's the reason you have the lenny face as your member title?

so what do we do in this thread? talk about anything that comes to mind?

Pretty much - last one got to 190 pages before everyone broke out the porn and we called it quits.

I like to keep it interesting - my original VB error code was getting on a bit

So is this like the shitposting thread I hear some old users talk about sometimes?

Eh - think of this as somewhere we don't really mind what happens as long as no one starts abusing anyone, starts flame wars or starts posting inappropriate content.

If you check the off-topic posting guidelines: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/234698-posting-guidelines-please-read/

You'll see that nonsensical stuff, "any old thing" etc. aren't really the kind of content the Off-Topic section should be about. Off-Topic is basically a collection pool for stuff which doesn't quite fit anywhere else, but it's not mean to be the dumpster.

 

So is this like the shitposting thread I hear some old users talk about sometimes?

That's what this was inspired by, yes. However, we didn't want to call it that to prevent it having a negative spin from the outset, lest people actively try to start coming up with the shittiest post possible. As long as the atmosphere in here stays positive and people don't overdo it (porn, gore, and of course personal attacks etc.), it'll stay open and mostly free from intervention on our part.

EDIT: Dammit @Windspeed36 , ninja'd :P

We're going for our honeymoon part 1 this weekend. We're going downhill skiing and hiking in a national park in Finland. It'll be a six-hour drive one way plus any stops we'll make. The AC/heater in my car could do some serious servicing but it's way too cold for me to do it now. It heats up but doesn't remove the moisture at all. Actually seems to add to it somehow. So I'm a little anxious about the windows frosting while driving. Also, it's been closer to ten years since I've been to a big slope so I can always break my leg or something, stranding us out there. My wife doesn't have a driver's license.

It's now close to -25C where we're headed which is less than optimal for any outdoor activities we have planned but there's a spa in the hotel too. Which we'll either hit after a day out or for the whole Saturday. Either way, it'll be awesome. I hate cold weather with every bone in my body but I still can't deny, Finland can be a breathtaking place during the winter. To give you guys an idea, here's the reasoning behind our blue-and-white national flag. And we're getting the suite with the view, I hear. :)

Later on this year we're planning a longer trip to somewhere warm. Like Hawaii or something. Hawaii would actually be optimal if it wasn't for the long-ass fight. My wife's a tiny bit claustrophobic and I can't really go more than two hours without smoking so we really need to think about the the flight. But for now, were heading out in about 18 hours and I'm as exited as can be. :)

pls no

What I meant by that is that most of the time in the anime club people aren`t talking about anime, but rather off-topic chit-chat.
