I think I may need to reiterate some basic rules of the message board.
As a moderator, I need to keep the integrity of the board. This is a board for all, whether you come to the board every few minutes, or every few months. That said, we want to offer enjoyment to each and every person who comes here.
Keeping the threads clear and on topic is important to maximize that enjoyment, and to allow viewers to use their time wisely. Some diversion occasionally happens, but we would prefer it not hijack another thread.
Anyone can open a new thread, and should if you have a topic to propose. That keeps it clean and fun and organized.
