Travel Forums System Talk Show off topic threads

Just thought I'd let you know that I really like the 'Show off topic threads' option - I have just started using it and it's really cool not to have to flick back a page to go to the off topic forum.

Glad you like it. There's a history to this. Before this option was created, the All Threads page displayed everything, including Off-Topic. Then about three years ago, the OT forum became extremely active with one particular member starting, on average, two to three new threads every single day. Some of the games that you see now also started from that time, while some "morphed" into different topics but still the same style--continue-this-thread. At that time, a game thread could spawn a few pages just in a matter of an hour! (those who participated, you know who you are! ) So with all this hyperactive OT forum occupying most of the All Threads page, we decided to turn it off by default and created this option for viewers to turn it on. We don't want to overwhelm new members with the games and non-travel talk.

Glad you like it Bex! It's one of those helpful little things you can read over so easily every day for years. Happens to me all the time! Something was slightly re-arranged on those main forum pages a week or so ago and I think it made these options a lot clearer.
