At the rate you're going, it's more likely to become an inactive status or spam status in all honesty....

Ah Sam, he's on his school holidays and he's just a bit bored

That's probably it... but it is annoying ! Maybe we'll have to switch off the Off Topic forum for a while. Get these forums back on the track of travel

Mightn't be the worst idea S

I don't know... it would certainly make it easier for moderators to do their job. All travel posts allowed, all non travel not ;)

[ Edit: Oops, just noticed you said mightN'T.... :) ]

It could also alienate a lot of users, i like the way the off topic allows people to become friendly or lets you have an insight to their personality, i've been on sites that are strictly travel only sites and i find them daunting and unfriendly

It's a good point Raven and the reason we haven't done it. After all, in a travel community people have to be able to get to know each other :)

But it's just so darned tempting sometimes!!!

I can understand as well why it would be so tempting and being a moderator would be a very frustrating job (you must have the patience of saints) but I also think that if people are annoyed by off topic then it is quite easy to avoid, those of us who are regularly in there can report spam or annoyances very quickly , we just have to control ourselves in the instances that can get out of control...

As it has been said so many times in so many other threads - if the spam button does not apply - clicking onto a different thread instead certainly does. Attention seekers will fade away if they do not receive attention. This, and their other threads, will fade right along with them.
