Off Topic or not Off Topic? The LTT Debate.

MOD NOTE, quoted from http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/432470-off-topic-or-not-off-topic-the-ltt-debate/?p=5798409

OK. Since this thread has turned to utter feces, I'm closing it. Couple of things:

  • As always: discussion is allowed, personal attacks are NOT.
  • If you see a thread which should not have been posted/breaches the CoC/is somehow not tolerable... Report it to the mods, afterwards, IGNORE THE BLOODY THING. How hard is it to grasp this concept? Don't go posting "this is a shit thread", or "this is against the CoC". We have a specific section in the CoC which forbids specifically that. The mods will handle it.
  • If you have an issue with a member... Report them to the mods, afterwards, IGNORE THEM. How hard is it to grasp this concept? Don't go creating threads for the sole purpose of publicly shouting how much you hate them. We have a specific section in the CoC which forbids specifically that. The mods will handle it.
Lastly, remember that we (the mods) are here to help. We are here to clean up the crap and handle disputes. Give us work, we crave for it. BUT give us work by making reports, NOT by making threads like these or "being a dick".
 


 

 

it seems like every time i try to make a thread in off topic i get harassed by the fun police that it is "not productive" or "tech related". in my opinion, there shouldnt be a thread labeled "off topic" if you aren't willing to have some "non productive" posts. In fact, it even states "Non-Tech related content only please!" right under it.

 yet, the " posting guidelines " state "3 - The Off-Topic section IS for productive threads that may not fall into one of the already laid out sections of the forum. At all times though, this is a tech centered and focused forum."  where is the truth?  my off topic posts seem to always get complained about just because they aren't about graphics cards or whatever. yet, they all follower the actual rules stated here: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/95599-linus-tech-tips-forum-code-of-conduct/ which were made by an actual forum admin, cough cough ill get to that later.

 

so, in my opinion, you should either remove the off topic thread option all together, or fix the so called "off topic guidelines" to adhere to a more fair set of guidelines because it is a vital part of the forum and it keeps the forum interesting when you dont want to talk about graphics cards 24 hours a day. i also find it important to point out that the self-nicknamed fun police (people who have alot of posts, yet no recognition by the staff, who think they can boss people around as if they are staff) need to stop parading every post looking for a reason to flag people down, and let the admins and moderators do their job. certain individuals on this site seem to think they have a title that lets them control peoples posting habits, even if they follow all official guidelines. as a member of this forum, we are not obligated to take orders from other members, as long as we are following all the rules put in place by admins.

I made a review of a window. Got locked. Was posted in off topic. The mods agree with the people. And I agree with you.

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

We should have a Meta subforum where we can make threads about making threads...

 

edit: this thread belongs to off-topic imo...

you know you posted this in wrong section

No. this is a general discussion topic. 

 Just because you don't care, doesn't mean other others don't. Don't be a self-centered asshole. -Thank You a PSA from the people who do not say random shit on the internet.

No. this is a general discussion topic. 

It's not tech related though. It's forum related. It technically should be in the forum suggestions. Also, posting this in General Discussion adds to the "fun polices" post count.

@AlwaysFSX you really need to get a hobby dude, all you do is sit around and type on the forums. And when you're not, you're hanging out with some gay white/mexican guy who has an obsession with his girlfriend :/
